I went bra fitting in New York.
If this is TMI for you, please skip this post. This was such an amazing experience that I had to make a separate post on it!
I went to Orchard Corset Center on the Lower East Side after reading reviews on Yelp!
The store looked pretty seedy from the outside, and the inside was also pretty shabby. I swallowed my doubts and told the lady I wanted a T-shirt bra.
She took me aside, told me to take my shirt and bra off, and handed me a bra. It fit perfectly!! Without even measuring me!!!
She fixed the straps, saying, "I don't trust anyone with the straps. You and every other girl that walks in here wear their bras too low!" She told me to put my shirt back on.
OMG. I looked totally different! I looked thinner, and my boobs just... looked better! AND the bra was REALLY comfortable.
I asked her for 2 more of exactly the same one, and also asked if I could wear the one I had on. She laughed and told me that most girls do that!
AND the bras she had were all affordable. There are other bra stores in New York, but I've read that the bras they sell you are pretty steep. These were very affordable, in fact, I found that they sell the exact same ones on Amazon for the same price. She is FAST, too. I was in and out of that store in less than 15 minutes. I think I waited the longest for my credit card to go through!
Basically, the lady takes the guesswork out of figuring out the different types of bras, and helps you to find the correct size! Apparently she's been doing this for 28 years!
This was TOTALLY different from being measured at Victoria Secret's or any department store. I seriously recommend you to get fitted by an expert! I just searched for "Bra Fitting" on Yelp!
(Oh, and read the reviews for Orchard Corset Center on Yelp. They are pretty funny, but they are DEAD ON accurate!)
That's it for my New York posts! Now back to writing reviews!
