A New Fit: Project #BraHappy

Last week, I shared with you tips for getting the right bra size and fit. Tips that I have learned from 123underwear. I was one of the majority of women who was wearing the wrong size bra. Be sure to check out Does Your Bra Fit? if you missed it.

After making sure that I had the right size, I also spoke to a 123underwear consultant about what I want in a bra. I wanted padding, lift, and comfort.

They decided that the Calvin Klein Seductive Comfort Customized Lift Bra would be one that would meet my needs. It's a pretty lilac blush color and retails for $48.

Now, here's where I get honest with you. When I was measuring myself according to the 123underwear guidelines, and kept getting 32C, I was tempted to still tell them 34B. Because that was what I was used to wearing. And my bras seem to fit okay.... I was nervous.

But, then I figured that this would be a total missed opportunity if I was working on Project #BraHappy and didn't give their advice an honest shot. And the worst that could happen would be that the bra didn't fit and they'd have to send me another size.

Surprisingly, the bra fit really well. It met all of the fit guidelines that I talked about last week and was super comfortable. If only I could replace all of my other bras now! After wearing the right size, I realized just how wrong the others ones are.

I was also sent the matching panty: Calvin Klein Seductive Comfort Hipster, $28. What I really like about this set, aside from actually fitting right, is that it's very comfortable and can be worn underneath my usual mom-uniform of jeans/yoga pants and a t-shirt AND that it's sexy. Sexy comfort is a total win. If only they made me look just like this underwear model....

Next week, I'll be back with the final week of Project #BraHappy with some tips on what every woman should have in their underwear drawer and with a giveaway for a bra consultation and a gift certificate to 123underwear.

This is a sponsored campaign on behalf of 123underwear. While I was provided with tips about bra fit and the garments mentioned in this post, all other thoughts and opinions are my own.

That's awesome that you found the right fit! I desperately need new bras ... my cheapo Target ones just aren't cutting it anymore.

If I keep eating like I have been I'm gonna need a bra.

The right fit is pretty cool when you finally figure it out :) The thing is that 32 is a tricky one to find... unless you're an A. I am a 32D or DD but usually end up getting 34D because I can't find 32's pretty much anywhere... that I can afford :P

I have the hardest time finding bras that fit me right because most of them cause me to bulge over on the sides..well cause I have boobs that are entirely too big..sigsh

Okay, so I am one of those girls whose bras simply MUST match her panties. I may look like a train wreck with my clothes, but underneath, I am all matchy, so I saw this and I thought, that's great, but that's like $80 for one matching set. YIKES! (I'm hoping we "know" each other well enough that my honesty here has not offended you.)

I wore the wrong size bra for years. A true size and god fit make all the difference. :)
Now if I could just have my boobs from when I was twenty. Lol

At $48 (dollars) the bra might be happy but my check book wouldn't be. LoL

Happy you're happy though. :)

yessss we have all been through the I want the perfect bra. I despise them to the core but with this post I am actually motivated to go get resized to get a great fit. I'm always adjusting mine plus with my weight loss idk what size I am at now! But I do know that my chest has gotten smaller!

Very nice! I know it's hard to try a new fit when you've been wearing a certain size for a while.

I just don't like spending too much money on bras. I'm all for figuring out the right fit, but from there, I'm probably heading to Target for a bra!

Man, I HATE buying new undies. Hate spending money on it...but if I had something that fit and felt better (?) then maybe I would totally want to buy one. :)

I love matching sets. I usually match. I need to buy new bras.

I'm glad you've found your right size.

I just got remeasured last week and I told the woman she was so wrong, that I'd lost so much weight my boobs shrunk down from a DD...so I brought a boatload of D's into the dressing room...
Uh, she was right, it was just the number that got smaller, not the boobage...
I hate being wrong...
but Eric was thrilled-ha!

I finally took my measurements and I am a 32AA. Also now I'm depressed and where does one find a 32AA besides the Target kids section? xo

The right fit makes such a world of difference.

That set is so cute and feminine. Something I definitly need around here

It looks like a really cute set!

So if you are really a 32C, then I guess that means you are skinnier than you thought you were, which is always a nice thing to find out!
