If like me, you went years and years with never having a professional bra fitting, you have probably been oblivious to the negative effects it can have on your health and wellbeing. Today I am going to talk through 5 Reasons why you should consider getting a bra fitting. Then, I'm going to review 2 very pretty pieces of lingerie, include some pretty photos and then give you lovelies a chance to win some pretty lingerie yourself! So basically, this post is about ALL of the pretty! 😉

Wearing the correct fitting bra is so SO important to women's health, it increases physical, emotional and mental wellbeing all while making you look absolutely beautiful! Having a bra fitting was probably one of the most enlightening experiences to come out of my 2016 (which, let's be honest wasn't all that great for anyone really.) and I would urge you guys to definitely give professional fitting a go. Debenhams offers professional fittings, which are carried out by a qualified team; who are comfortable and relaxing and I would definitely recommend you giving their service a go.

Still not convinced? Well let me give you 5 Reasons to...

1) Physical Health Problems...You probably wouldn't have ever have made the connection, but did you know that wearing too small a bra could cause headaches, due to the tension the straps create within your neck and back? But it's not only wearing too tight a bra that can affect you, wearing too loose a bra can also cause you back pain, due to the lack of support a correct fitting bra can give.

2) For your Future Self...Over time wearing incorrect bra sizes, not only lead to headaches and back pain, but can also cause your boobs to drop earlier than they usually would do in your older years. I don't know about you, but I am not about that saggy boob life just yet, and I want to keep mine as perky as I can, for as long as I can. 10 years down the line, when I'm (hopefully) hitting that 30 year milestone, I'd like to be able to have my boobs hanging at a reasonable height! 😂

3) It's Not as Scary as You Think...I feel like bra fittings have this misconception that they are carried out by intimidating, old ladies, with big glasses who get a little too touchy - feely during the fitting. It is absolutely nothing of the sort. The lady who fit me in Debenhams was friendly, knowledgable and although she was confident in what she was doing, she still had a sense of calm about her that helped to keep me relaxed.

4) Emotionally and Mentally Beneficial... I never actually realised the difference that wearing the correct fitting bra can make to how you feel emotionally and mentally. Since getting my bra fit, I have felt so much more confident and relaxed when it comes to getting dressed up and going out. Wearing the correct fitting bra, improves your posture and provides you with the support your boobs require, which in turn will help you walk taller and feel stronger! :)

5) The Bulging Boob...I think we've all been there... As a teenager, I always wore bras way too small for me and thus ended up with the bulging boob effect A.K.A having my boobs quite literally spill out from my bra, because they had nowhere else to go - double boobage anyone? If like me, you find yourself suffering from the double boob effect, go and give a bra fitting a go. With the right fitting, you'll have the right bra and with the right bra, you'll be able to kick some butt!

And now onto the fun part of the post. As I mentioned previously in this post here, I am working with Debenhams on their bra fit campaign, which is all about getting the nations boobies into the right fitting bras - because honestly there are a lot of us who are in the wrong size bras and we don't even know it (8 out of 10 women - to be exact!). Debenhams actually recommend women to try to get a bra fitting done every 6 months to ensure that we are always wearing the correct size bra to support our breasts. If you haven't had one recently, you can head on down to Debenhams, where they carry out professional bra fittings for their customers!

The first bra that you will have a chance to win is the *Triumph 'Modern Bloom' bra. This bra, like so many lace bras, has the amazing ability to make me go all heart eyed and bushy tailed in it's pretty lace presence. The entire bra has been made entirely using lace and it is covered using floral embroidery.

I'm a bit hit and miss on the fit of this bra, in terms of cup fit, where it is lined, it is nice and fitted. However, the lace edges of the cups which are unlined, sit a little more loosely than I would've liked, and actually bunch up slightly when I lean forwards. I have tried adjusting the straps, which helped slightly, but it still did not fit as snug as I would've like it to. Apart from this, the rest of the fit of the bra is perfect. It includes adjustable straps and a sturdy under wiring for extra support.

In addition to the loose fit of the grey trim, I also am not so hot on the shade of grey that has been used for the contrasting trim. Now don't get me wrong, I am all about that grey life, I love the colour grey. I just feel like the shade that has been used here, gives the bra a dull appearance, which is quite the opposite to what it's lace material is doing. This, I think is more a matter of my own personal preference and I'm sure others will be able to appreciate this accented grey shade.

Moving on to bra number two: The *'Triumph Black Amourette 300 Bra' This is definitely my favourite bra of both the bras in this giveaway. Again, just like the previous bra, it is an all over, lace, beauty. And it's colour is completely black, all over the bra, which is definitely much more to my liking. However if you are not a fan of the all black look, it is also available in white, cream and dark cream.

Again like the first, this bra lacks padding, however I find that there is a lot more lace coverage on the cups to be able to cover up your modesty (if you know what I'm saying 😜). Due to it's lack of padding and lining, I wouldn't say that this was a bra made for a day of high activity, as your boobs will shake about quite a bit. However, on the contrary, the under wiring, similar to the 'Modern Bloom Bra' is brilliant and provides support where you need it the most! Where the lack of padding fails on support, it is compensated for, in it's under wiring.

The bra has got an all black lace aesthetic going on, which definitely gives it an air of sophistication and S-A-S-S like no other. It really is so pretty, and it can be worn underneath a sheer shirt for a brave daytime look in the summer or underneath a crotchet crop top for a sassy night look!
