Thank you to the assistant in John Lewis.
I was stressed. I was in a rush during my lunch break and doing my usual hit and miss attempt at buying a bra. I was going for afternoon tea the following day and wanted to look my best in the dress I’d bought. My terribly fitting bra collection was literally letting me down.
I hadn’t booked a fitting appointment but you stepped in to check that the bra I’d chosen fitted properly anyway. I think I was giving off a confused vibe.
You explained why a different size would be more supportive and flattering. You found me the best bra I’ve had since having my 3 kids. It probably only took a few minutes and your expert eye to set me straight.
You probably don’t remember this interaction, you probably fit hundreds of bras each week. You won’t realise how feeding 3 little people had left me feeling less than in love with my boobs. You gave me a spadeful of body confidence back without even knowing it.
I left feeling a little bit more like myself again. I went to my afternoon tea with an extra spring in my step knowing that I look better in my clothes again.
