Last Friday I was supposed to have a wedding dress fitting, but it turned out I must have the shoes for it with me. Of course, a lovely lady from the shop hadn't even mentioned it in the telephone conversation before, and the last time I saw the dress was in February, so I didn't even have a clue what color should I look for. Nevermind, instead of the fitting, we went shopping with my mum and managed to buy a strapless bra for the dress and a cocktail dress for the day after the wedding. In Poland, it's traditional for the wedding reception to last until dawn, and then (after getting some sleep) the guests are invited to a late breakfast. This is what I needed the dress for :)
Looks a bit unimpressive on the rack...
The dress is from Simple, a Polish high-end clothing company that's often awarded for its unique designs. It's 100% silk, and it was 50% off! Otherwise, it would probably be way too expensive for my pocket... When I put it on I instantly loved it, it feels so me... It has a distinctive 60's feel, the bow at the top is super cute, and the black lace detailing at the bottom makes it one of the kind. It had to be mine!
It is strapless, so I was a bit worried about wearing it, but it fits like a glove!
I also needed a cream colored strapless bra for the wedding dress, but before I had never found one that would actually stay in place. As it turned out, the reason was... I was matched with a wrong size. So on Friday, my cleavage went from 70C to 65E (which is UK 30DD or US 30D), and the bra fits perfectly! I find Polish companies have very nice lingerie designs now and a wider range of sizes, unlike what I remember from 5 or 6 years ago, when the only '65' was cup A. The design of this one is very feminine... and I'm proud of going from cup C to E ;)
Has a similar 'bra size story' ever happened to you?
