Thought I would share a very positive experience I had recently in lingerie shopping and how sometimes challenging ourselves can be so positive and experience. I would preface by saying I personally feel that of all the womens clothing available, wearing a bra is one of the most feminine style and feel I can wear. It constantly hugs and reminds you of your feminine side and CD persona all the time you have it on. My challenge has always been to find the right size, style and fit. I would buy in person hurriedly in a shop on the pretense of being for someone else and inevitable have one with back or shoulder straps wrong, poor fitting and end up with bra band extenders or similar. I just wanted to be able to go and get a proper fitting and be able to try on before I brought and find a style I liked and looked good on me. Well just recently I decided I was sick of hiding who I was and to muster up the courage to try and do a proper shop for bras. I phoned a local lingerie specialist shop and nervously explained I was a CD and wanted to get help with a bra fitting. I explained I did not want to cause any awkwardness for either the store staff or customers (sadly it only takes one other customer to make a scene) by being in fitting rooms and trying bras on. The staff could not be more understanding or helpful on the phone. They welcomed me to come down and would ensure discretion with other shoppers. So the next day , first time ever, I summoned up all my courage and ventured into the lingerie shop, introduced myself as the caller from previous day and spent one of the best lingerie shopping days I have had. I was very nervous at start but a mature lady helped me and we worked out sizes, styles and colours. Then they let me use the changing rooms and I could try to my hearts content. They brought in over 20 different bras and then to my surprise started to find matching panties for some of the bras and styles of other lingerie for me to try. I have never experienced such a liberating day and a feeling of what it would be like to shop for intimates as a woman before. Needless to say I found some perfect bras – I prefer underwire but also went wirefree, and made awesome purchases. I learnt a lot about what I like and also what actually fits and does not. As I say there is nothing like fastening up the back clasps of a proper fitting lace bra and then wearing for the day. If I hadn’t of gone out on a limb and challenged myself I would have missed the whole experience. To finish the story, as I knew my sizing from the day out, I was on line that night and saw another local lingerie store clearing stock out and spied a longline bra in my exact size marked down from $130 to just $20!!. I couldn’t believe the bargain and I knew it would fit. Needless to say I snapped it up and it fits so well. Longline are a great bra but just has to be right size. Anyway, in the scope of life maybe a simple day by anyone elses standards but for me these are sometimes the best and having a day not being judged but treated equal and allowed to show and enjoy my feminine side makes it all worth while.
