Panache - Learn the Fit

Last Thursday saw me and a whole gang of gorgeous blogging babes head to Sheffield for the first Blogger "Learn the Fit" session. Previously delivered to professionals, business owners and retail assistants we were lucky enough to experience the session for ourselves.

Held at Panache HQ we were lead to the training room where we were met with drinks and introduced to the team.

Our session was held by the most wonderful and knowledgeable Karen Forbes who owns independent lingerie shop The Little Big Bra Shop Karen talked us through the everything regarding fitting a bra from fitting techniques, through to customer service, breast types, body types, bra styles and fit issues.

I think for me the most interesting part of the workshop was how varying breast shapes can effect the fit of a bra and how sometimes we can be fitted correctly but without the right style of bra it can still seem like the wrong fit. For me personally now that I have determined the right size, it is a case of finding the right bra which was invaluable information. So thank you Karen, you're an absolute star.

We were also treated to a tour of the design studio, which was, for fashion mad me and absolute joy, to hear from the designers all about the design process, the thought behind each bra, how they look at trends, gather information, make up mood boards and present them was just fascinating.

For me I think the most important message of the day was that Panache know their stuff. When it comes looking after your boobs, which lets face it, is pretty damn important, Panache's extensive and continuing research, development and forward thinking makes them market leaders. From keeping abreast (excuse the pun) of trends and technology to training schemes and development.

So if I'm going to put my boobs in anyone's hands (ahem) it's going to be Panache!

  5. As a busty girl I've always known the importance of a good fitting bra, I just wish bigger sizes were more readily available on the high-street. I walk into Debenhams and despite their range of brands and supposedly 'bigger' sizes, they never have anything in my size and it means I have to order online, which isn't ideal when it's something you want to try first.
