Bra set courtesy of B by Ted Baker for Debenhams

Can the boys go out and play with lawn sprinkler while the women talk about body lumps? Thanks!

Ladies, I’ve had a life-changing experience today. No, I didn’t go to Seven Sisters again with rotten eggs; I was invited to view the B by Ted Baker lingerie range in Debenhams and to have a bra fitting. My history of ‘bra fitting’ had been allowing shop assistants eyeball my chest and be given a bra that mysteriously didn’t fit so well. Naturally I thought it was the bra, because eyeballing is such a scientifically-proven effective way of measurement, no? Turns out that all my bras were two sizes bigger and one cup smaller than my actual size. So basically my entire adult life (avec boobs) I’ve had some cotton/polyester contraption around the chest that was sort of relevant to its function. But now my lumps have a home.

The collection ranges from traditional bra sets to silk cotton loungewear, great quality for pricetags that range from £10.50 to £49.50. I personally preferred the simpler ones with no pattern, because no matter how and where, butterflies will always always remain the symbol of tackiness for me. Also I strongly recommend the free bra fitting service in Debenhams for anyone wondering why you can tie a knot with your bra over your chest.
