Now don’t get too excited. There won’t be any bra-clad pictures of me in this post. Enjoy this photo of a model instead.
You may remember my rant to the fashion world. There is a problem with the fashion outlets in this country. In Europe, they found a great way to cater to big-boobed girls… but that’s another post.
In any case, sick of living in my now too-small lululemon sports bras (my recent weight gain turned my DD cup into a G cup) and coming home with chafed shoulders and a painful bust, I needed help, and fast. After a quick Google search on places in Victoria that do bra fittings, I discovered this little hidden gem: Victoria Classic Lingerie on Fort at Linden.
A failed attempt to visit on Saturday (they are closed during holiday weekends) didn’t detract me from visiting after work today. The lovely Kirsten helped me find the perfect bra for my new size with humour, care and discretion. They have a great selection of bras for us curvy girls and even for the smaller ladies out there. They take the time to fit you to the right size (I must have tried 7-8 different bras) and to give you fitting and wearing tips. They also have great accessories like silicone pads and just regular nightwear as well.
Victoria Classic Lingerie is the only spot in Victoria that I know offers sizes up to K in certain models. Trust the advice of a girl whose daily comfort depends mostly on her bra: once you get a bra that fits you perfectly from a professional fitter, you’ll never go back to mass bra retailers that will remain nameless.
P.S.: Did I mention there’s free 90-minute parking on Fort once you go past Linden? Don’t pay for parking lower down the hill!
