What Katie Didn’t Do
As you might be able to tell from the title of this post, the What Katie Did bra I got did not work out at all. The 32 band definitely felt like a 32 (looser than my old 32’s from La Senza even) despite being told that their 32’s stretch to about 27 inches. Perhaps this is the case with some of their bras, but not at all with the Madeleine lace bra.
I’ve decided to re-sell it rather than return it as I’d prefer not to pay for the return shipping on such an inexpensive item (I got it on ebay from WKD’s clearance store). It is very beautiful and the construction is lovely, but there was just no chance of it fitting. I hear the bullet bras do fit very tight in the band though, but I won’t be trying one of those since I’m not interested in the shape.
I got this bra in a 32E as I also heard the cups run small, butI found that my normal cup size would’ve been best. For all of you in What Katie Did’s size range, congrats, because they have some beautiful vintage inspired lingerie available.
