My absolute favorite brand of bras thus far has been Empreinte. I have looked around and never found a brand as comfortable: Empreinte bras are really cut as though they were made for me, and the quality is truly top-notch.
As I’ve lost a band size, though, it appears that I’ve been sized out of Empreinte. My band size has shrunk but my cup has not, and Empreinte doesn’t carry styles in a size that will fit me now (full-cup bras are too much bra for me.) So, what is a girl to do? It’s very stressful to go looking for a new brand or style of bra that fits; endless trying on, inevitable disappointment: one can spend hours in a shop and still not find a suitable bra.
This is the cause of my current dilemma: right now I have only four bras that fit me, all of them various colorways of the Fantasie Savannah plunge (I have a lengthy review of this style coming.) I’ve been out shopping a few times looking for a brand and style that will fit me, and thus far I’ve had no success.
I know I am more fortunate than many women: I live in a large city with multiple specialty bra retailers, and given time, I will surely find a bra that fits me perfectly. But in the back of my mind there is always a little niggling fear: what if I don’t?
