It’s the shopping task that ranks second only to buying bikinis in terms of frustration, difficulty, and how quickly you find yourself reduced to tears in the changing room. Yes, we’re talking about bra shopping.
Whether your large or small breasted, it’s a rare occasion where you can just walk into a store, pick up some items and find they fit half decently. So what’s the secret? Is it even humanly possible?
Private plus size bra specialist and Miss Scarlett Did It founder Regina Pascuzzzi is here to help you and your girls.
1. Your bra is most likely ill-fitting.
“80 per cent of the time, women are wearing the wrong size,” says Pascuzzi.
2. But don’t feel bad about it.
It’s not your fault – there’s an art to it, people.
“So many people apologise for the bra they are wearing. I would love women to understand that there is no judgment when they come in to see me or any other person who does this. We are all driven by a need to help,” she says.

3. It is possible to judge a bra size with just one look.
Now, THAT’s a good party trick.
“Thanks to Google answering my question ‘where does the Queen get her bras?’ (Rigby and Peller), I took myself off to the UK to have that experience,” says Pascuzzi.
