I was lucky enough to be invited to the Fashion Bloggers' Lock In Event at La Senza and attended it with the lovely Victoria from inthefrow. I had a great night and even got my nails done by the nail technicians brought in from Topshop's Oxford Street store. There were plenty of mocktails and sweets provided while we walked around the store with a sale representative (all of which were very friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgeable). I was amazed at how many different ranges La Senza have. The Hello Sugar and Beyond Sexy bras made my boobs look huge, whereas the Body Kiss ones were incredibly comfy as the underwire was soft! Find out more about the different collections here. I came away with this gorgeous bra and knicker set from the Beyond Sexy range. It is very comfortable and the hot pink colour is stunning. I'm thinking of wearing it underneath my black jumpsuit for a night out so a sneaky peak of colour is on show.
Some little tips that I learnt about bras from the staff at La Senza:
1. The fasten at the back should sit very central, where your spine is.
2. The middle bit in between cups should be flat on the breast bone and the underwire should also be flat on your chest.
3. Your boobs shouldn't be falling out of the cups at all, they should cover the whole boob.
4. The edge of the underwire on the cup should be level with the armpit so that it is not resting on the breast tissue. If you wear a bra that does always sit on the breast tissue, it can eventually cause lumps.
I would definitely recommend that anyone and everyone go to La Senza and get measured for a bra fitting. The staff are all qualified fitters and you can really benefit from the knowledge and expertise. I will certainly be paying another visit and getting some more bras and PJs!
