Back in May, Debenhams launched their #KnowYourSize campaign to encourage women to use their free expert bra fitting service so that they can reap the benefits of a correctly fitting bra. 8 out of 10 women in the UK currently wear the wrong size bra, thanks to outdated fitting techniques such as the "plus four" method. As part of this campaign Debenhams have been kitting me out with some beautiful lingerie. This month I have been sent a beautiful bra from Triumph and Debenhams are kindly giving away a bra to one lucky reader, too!

Ensuring that you have the right size bra is really important. I discovered I had gone up a cup size when I visited Debenhams Oxford Street for my VIP bra fit, despite having had two babies that were both breastfed. My boobs had changed and I had assumed that, if anything, I would have gone down a size. I also learnt that I was wearing the wrong style of bra, and the lovely Debenhams bra fitter talked me through which styles would offer the most support as well as being more flattering to my shape. Now that I have bras in the correct size and in the ideal style for me, I feel much more comfortable and have a lovely silhouette under my clothes.
This month Debenhams sent me a Triumph Modern Bloom bra (£38.00) in black; the bra is also available in white. This is a full cup bra with lace and embroidery detail all over the cup. The top half being sheer with a little keyhole detail and satin bow between the cups, and the embroidery carries on up the straps. I love pretty detailing like this; having been used to wearing functional maternity bras for the past few years it is nice to have something a little more special!
Of course, besides looking beautiful, the main point of any bra is comfort and support, and this Triumph bra has a few features to ensure that you get both of these. It's an unpadded, underwired bra featuring their Flexi 3D Wire. This 3D flexible wire offers three times more comfort than an average wired bra. The bra also has a softer hook and eye, with a super soft, fleecy covering over the bra closure so that you won't feel the metal digging in. Gorgeous and comfortable, what more could you need!
