Finding that perfect bra was once thought to be an impossible mission by yourself truly.  The last time I was measured was when I “graduated” from a trainer bra to the real deal.  My usual bra shopping experience consists of finding a cute pattern, having a friend take a sneak a peak at the size tag on my back and skipping the change room all together.  
Sound familiar?
The bra ends up fitting well enough… but it’s maybe a little loose, too tight or just a bit awkward. I’m going to take a wild guess that this is a familiar experience for a lot of you lovelies?

At Lilac Lingerie, each shopping trip can turn into a personal fitting experience to find the best fitting bra possible.   Now, reading the words “personal fitting” may be a little intimidating to those who are more reserved or shy… But letting the professionals do what they do best, will leave you feeling satisfied with your newest lingerie purchase.

Since it I felt like I was overdue for a fitting, I was more than pleased to take on this Twenty York Street assignment.  From my experience, which was overall fun & enjoyable, I would like to share some tips when going bra fitting:
1) Bring someone for moral support.  It’s helpful to have a friend or spouse tag along to break the ice, give encouragement or a second opinion.  
2) Forget all expectations in regards to sizing… Seriously.  I went in wearing a 34-B and came out a 30-D.  So let the ladies at Lilac Lingerie pass you that unexpected size and just try it on, you might like the fit better than your usual.
3) Let go of modesty.  My initial question was “can I wear my shirt during the fitting?”.  Of course I could wear my shirt but it makes things a lot more difficult and lengthy.  So I went all out and it was a comfortable experience.  The ladies are sweet, helpful and professional.  
4) Have fun!  With so many different styles, designs and options you can not only find the best fit but something for all occasions.
