    Did they look or did they measure?

    2 different styles of bra fitting but believe it or not the assistants who do it by sight are generally more accurate than the other..for their brand.

    You should be losing back fat as well as bust.

    I would say this is just a difference in measuring....
    One day I was measured by three different shops on the same day.. and each one of them gave me a different size!
    Bras are renowned for sizes that are not consistent so i wouldnt worry.. apparently everytime we buy a bra we should try it on and not go by the size on the bra!

    Bravissimo are the best! I find marks&spencer really bad for their fitting service. The assistant told me to try a D, I almost laughed then went to Bravissimo and got a G cup.

    I've experienced this but the other way around. I lost a little weight last year and went to get measured and had gone down a back size but up a cup size. That didn't make sense to me either.

    But if it fits it fits! And the best thing is that a well-fitting bra can actually take lbs off your appearance.

    All depends on if you were wearing the correct size to start with I guess

    Thats how bras work. The cup size on a 34CC is the same as the actual cup size on a 36C. So if you lost off your back, but not your bust, you'll go up a size by the label even though they haven't grown at all.
