We've all got those places where we head to for those day to day essentials, from which we go back time and time again as we know they'll serve us well. My place for underwear has always been M&S just because I knew I'd get something of good quality. Since attending a private Next lingerie event, my thoughts have now changed.
A cheeky massage before being measured for my perfect bra was a must, and the massage angels were amazing. Before our fitting we had a chat about Nexts mission statement and given some shocking facts like, did you know 80% of women wear the wrong size bra? Say what?! I couldn't believe that statistic. Next want to raise the awareness of their lingerie range and be as popular as their rival M&S. With all its bras made with brushed cups and luxury fabrics, I have faith that Next will sooner rather than later be recognised for their undergarments as much as their clothing.
We were taken into the changing rooms one at a time along with a bra fitting trained specialist to be fitted into a bra that is our correct size. Of course I was wearing the wrong size, a whole 2 inches and one cup size wrong. All Next bra styles have a name to make it easy for us ladies to find several bras in the same style which is a simple yet a fantastic idea. I walked around for ages having a real look at all of the variety until I came across a bra that just for me, stole the show.
I tend to go for black underwear (black everything really) so as soon as this black lace number with the fancy elastic straps across the breast area was brought to my attention, i knew it had to be mine. Beautiful detailing and so comfortable, I just wish they did it in several colours (by which I mean nude and white, and maybe grey).
Such a lovely event and with focus on such an important topic, I highly advise you all to have a mooch around the Next lingerie section. You won't regret it!
