Most customers simply won’t take any size DD bras into the changing rooms as they can’t believe they could be bigger than a busty model.
There’s a psychological barrier there for a lot of women and it’s a problem.
You’ve heard the stories—Western men, desperate for love and companionship, journey to faraway places like Ukraine or Russia in the hopes of meeting Eastern European women. Unfortunately, those fairytales stories rarely come true.
Today I feel the need to share a Ukrainian bride horror story/scam that was recently pulled on an acquaintance of mine.
Bravissimo, the bra company for ladies with a slightly larger bosom, have decided to take breasts by the straps (so to speak) with the launch of the slightly frightening and hilarious-sounding ‘Boob School’, which opens today in their stores across the UK, and virtually via the company’s website and a Facebook app.
To give some backstory, I met this guy in July 2016 in Odessa, Ukraine.
While my memory is slightly foggy, he was around 55 years old and lived on the east coast of the United States.
“However people are still using that method today, which is just wrong, as it doesn’t allow for an accurate volume measurement and usually means the bra ends up being too big around the middle – which is where all the support comes from.” Instead the fitters at Bravissimo do it all by eye and from experience.
After getting myself sorted (and learning a heck of a lot, while purchasing a very pretty and reasonably priced bra), I was really struck by something Anne shared with me.
