As someone who has big boobs, bra shopping has never been my favourite pastime, especially when I was growing up. I remember my mum trying to herd me into the lingerie section at M&S, where she would hold various (enormous) bras up to me, trying to make an educated guess on what would work, because I refused to get fitted properly.

Now I'm 26, and able to shop for a bra without feeling embarrassed or throwing a tantrum, I felt it was time I went for my first bra fitting. My realisation? How important it really is to have a bra that fits properly. For too long I have put up with granny bras, four-boob bras and bras that leave red marks on my skin, so when I was invited for a fitting with Empreinte I jumped at the opportunity. I needed a comfortable bra. And as bra sizing can be confusing, I wanted expert help.

I came in wearing my favourite T-shirt bra – super comfy, but little support. As I looked in the mirror with my fabulous fitter, Victoria, she instantly pinpointed the areas that were a problem with my bra sizing (I was wearing a 34GG bra). The back was too loose, the straps were too tight, and I was slightly spilling out over the top (AKA the dreaded four-boob).

I was saddened to hear that what I thought was my most trusted bra had in fact betrayed me. In particular, Victoria focused on my shoulders, which already have permanent indentations in them, and pointed out that they would only get worse if I were to continue to wear ill-fitting bras.

Usually, bra shopping is a very unhappy and stressful experience for me, but not this time. Victoria brought in style after style for me to try, from a wireless bra to bras with lace details to full coverage bras, all beautifully designed. The conclusion: I’m actually a 32H, meaning I’m smaller around the back and fuller in the cup. Along with my new size, I had my new balconette bra personalised for free by the lovely Josiane, who embroidered my initials into the back.

If you do have a larger bust, it's easy to feel a bit confused as to where to actually buy your bras. But with so many excellent brands offering sizes ranging from AA-H cups, you shouldn't have to struggle to find great bras to fit.

Now, all that’s left to do is share my new-found expertise with you all. So, here are the best bras for big boobs, as chosen by a woman who actually has big boobs. That's me. And thanks to a bra that actually fits, I'm saying it loud and proud.
