We’re off for a bra fitting.
Words by Rebecca Fearn.
It’s a commonly-known fact that a huge amount of women are actually wearing the wrong sized bra (80%, in fact). But a recent video by Victoria’s Secret revealed even top models can get it wrong when it comes to their sizings.
Victoria’s Secret models Barbara Palvin, Alexina Graham, Josephine Skriver and and Lais Ribeiro all feature in the brand’s latest video that shows them being fitted for new bras. Surprisingly, the expert fitting them reveals they are actually all wearing the wrong sized bras.
Each model tells the camera at the beginning what size they think they are and what they are currently wearing. Alexina says 32B, Josephine 32C and Barbara 32B. Lais admits she is unsure as she’s never had a fitting.
The experts then examine their current bras and take measurements. From underwires incorrectly laying flat under the breasts to cups digging in at the top and ‘spillage’ on the sides, the experts found plenty of issues with the women’s current bras.
The women’s new measurements are revealed at the end of the video, and they have all changed. Alexina went up from a 32B to a 32D, Josephine from a 32C to a 32D, Barbara from a 32B to a 32C, and Lais was advised to wear a 32DD.
Although we’re fully aware this is a promotional video for Victoria’s Secret and their range of underwear, it’s a gentle reminder to get fitted regularly to ensure you’re getting the right daily support.
