Hi loves, I have something a little different for you today ;)
I was contacted by Leia Lingerie to see if I wanted to pop in and see their latest collections and try their bra fitting service as I've been working closely with St. Davids Centre Cardiff on their new blog, for the lifestyle and beauty section. It was simply to go along and see but I had such an amazing shopping experience I wanted to share with the world!
I've never done anything in-store with companies before (well, that wasn't at an event full of other ladies, where I kinda take a backseat) SO I took my time about it and wrote notes during and after my experience on my phone.
First of all the lovely Kathryn ushered me into a beautifully, grand dressing room that was purple and gold with a huge chandelier in where she tasked me what size I think I am/buy and what style, shape and padding etc do I like.
Kathryn went off and right away found the cutest little black and nude pink polka dot bra for me to try in the size I thought I was. Right away I could tell it looked wrong. After explaining to me how to look more 'defined' in the bra she explained that I was not a 32C but infact she placed me at - 30DD! Woah! That sounded crazy because I really didn't think I had that big a cup size or that small around!
I really loved the half-cup shape of the bra's she had given me to try but also wanted to branch out a little so I waited in the dressing room for Kathryn to pick me out some new styles to try. I tried on a longline bra that I did not think would suit me in a million year and actually it looks so cute and feminine - I loved it!
I was so happy with the way Kathryn understood my style and I couldn't leave the shop without my two favourites (oh and of course they came in a set so I just had to get the full thing!). Here are my purchases:
|Beautifully wrapped with this seasons catalogue and a preview of next season too.|
|Freya Patsy Longline Bra Top|
Freya Patsy Brief
|Freya Patsy Half-Cup in Light Pink|
Freya Patsy Short
|Of course Prince couldn't keep his nosy little head out of my business.|
I was also given a loyalty card, for every time you spend over £30 in store (even on sale) you get a flower stamp - fill your card and get a free bra (with no price restrictions!). There is also a card in which if you refer a friend and they make a purchase - you give them the card and get £10 to spend in store.
I can't speak any more highly of the Leia team - so go on ladies get yourself fitted and find out your true bra size!
