What can The Fitting Room offer you?
 
You will be able to visit for a fitting, to try stock before you buy or simply to ask for advice.   We always have a good selection of bras, underwear, bra sized swimwear and sports bras in stock, anything not in stock can be ordered in for you.   The owner, Clare, is an experienced, Eveden trained fitter and has been fitting bras since 2003.  All fitting staff are also Eveden trained.
 
We only stock the UK’s top recognised brands, most of which have won awards for their fit and all bras that we keep in stock are tested by our team to ensure we are happy with the standard of materials and the fit the standard of fit, this way you are guaranteed of a good fit and of quality, no matter what bra you choose.  We specialise in finding hard to find bra sizes and stock bras in band sizes 28"-56” and in cup sizes AA-KK.  Prices start from as little as £7 for bras and swimwear from previous ranges.
 
Gift vouchers & wish lists?
 
Why not come and fill in a wish list and leave yours details with us.  We will contact the person of your choice at special occasions and birthdays to let them know what ranges you are interested in.  Alternatively, we sell gift vouchers which made the ideal solution when you don't know what size to get.  Everyone gets a fitting card when they are fitted by us so if you can bring this with you, we can help you choose something to give as a gift.
 
Why is it important to have a proper bra fitting?
Wearing the correct fitting bra is essential and can make a complete difference to how you look and feel.  Badly fitted bras make your breasts sag and stretch the tissue that holds and maintains the shape of your breasts.  This sagging causes damage to the Coopers Ligaments - these ligaments hold your breasts upright and damage to them is irreversible.  The coopers ligaments are like a network of rubber bands and, like rubber bands, once they are stretched worn out they cannot be repaired or replaced.  The picture shows these ligaments as little red lines.

The Importance of wearing a properly fitted Sports Bra

One question asked a lot is: I don't need to bother about wearing a special bra, do I?

We see a lot of women who do not wear a proper sports bra or who wear a 'normal bra' for physical activities, this causes irreversible damage to the breast tissue as well as rubbing and possible scarring.  It has been scientifically proven that, when taking part in physical activities, breast move up and down, from side to side and also round and round.  All repetitive movement will stretch the ligaments beyond repair so a bra that supports the breast should be an essential part of your sports kit.  Even women with small busts should wear a sports bra, many think they do not need one but all breasts move.  The sports bras we sell are designed to support and independently encapsulate each breast, rather than giving compression based support, so, no matter what activity you are participating in, give your boobs the support they need by wearing a proper, supportive sports bra.

First fittings & fittings for teenagers

We are a small boutique offering a personal, warm and welcoming environment for girls coming for their first fitting.  It is never too early to bring your daughter to see us so she grows up to understand that there is nothing to be worried or embarrassed about when having a bra fitting and buying a bra becomes as routine as buying a new pair of shoes.  The earlier she learns the importance of wearing a properly fitted bra, the easier it will be in the future for her to tell you she needs a new one.  If you have any questions we will be happy to answer them for you.  Please note that all under 16's must be accompanied by an adult when coming for a fitting.
