If there is one thing that I haven’t kept a secret, it’s my love for Marlies Dekkers (proof here, here and here) and the fact that a high quality well-fitting bra is important to me.
So, when you could enroll for a bra fitting session through the brands news letter, that is exactly what I did.
A little while later I received an invitation mail from Lin’s Lingerie and last Saturday I had my fitting.
I was greeted by a friendly woman who clearly loves what she does and knows what she’s doing and after a little chat about lingerie in general and Marlies Dekkers and Barbara more in dept, it was time for the real work.
First my band size was measured, this is measured at band height just below your bust and gives you the number in your bra size.
Then my cup size was measured, this is measured on the fullest part of your breast and gives you the letter in your bra size.
To round up the measuring part the prefect model for me was determined as a balcony or plunge balcony model, based on my breast volume and breast implantation on my chest.
With some extra tips on the best way to put on a bra and how to correctly wear it (the band should always be parallel to the floor and the straps should not dig into your shoulders) I was then shown some models that would suite me best and I decided to take the Oriental Morphosis home…
Because it was a fitting session, I was sent home with a fitting kit containing amongst other things a perfect fit card, a voucher for 5 EUR (which I immediately spent on the above bra) and a lovely tape-measure.
I was further spoiled by the shop owner with some extra goodies like a choker and a beach bag.
It’s good to get confirmation that I am still wearing the correct bra size (although it is recommended to measure up every six months or so) and that so far I’ve chosen the right model, so I can continue to buy the right size over at Vente Exclusive when they have another Marlies Dekkers sale.
However, since I was welcomed so heartily and helped out so generously I will most definitely return to Lin’s Lingerie (which is located in Lede a mere 15 min drive from my door) in the future.
