    I just bought new bras and I was measured at Nordstrom’s. I still feet they might be off this time, I wear Wacol and Cantele ( spelling is wrong). I will be back to this site and look for some new. Thanks for the help.

    Herroom has a great website guiding women in purchasing bras, but I gotta say that I had the single worst experience with Herroom customer service I’ve ever had. It’s really important to be able to return bras you purchase online. I often order 2 sizes I think would fit and return the one that doesn’t.

    It turns out that Herroom has a 30 day return policy from the date of shipping, not when you actually get the package. Count on 6-8 business days for standard shipping, throw in a weekend or two, and you’re really up the creek when you call them and they tell you how they calculate their 30 days.

    I googled them (unfortunately after my horrible encounter) and found dozens of people who experienced pretty much an identical situation. I say use their useful guidelines and purchase elsewhere. I wouldn’t recommend Herroom to my worst enemy to shop at.

    What a cool site. At first I thought it was only for larger sizes, but I am glad to learn HerRoom has all sizes to choose from and to help fit me properly. I have a friend who is a Double D. I will tell her about Her Room.

    I have the hardest time finding a bra that fits. Some Ds are too small, some are too big and some I have to get in a DD.

    Her Room looks awesome! I just went bra shopping today and it is pure misery! I have this post bookmarked for when I buy my next bra!

  6. Jenna Wood says

    As a full figured woman it is so frustrating shopping for a bra. I am in that average DD area, and can never find the same fit when I go shopping in a different brand. I think this HerRoom system is ingenious and definitely worth looking into for my next bra. I’m excited to know I’ll have the peace of mind of a comfortable fit across many brands, because I often don’t buy the same label for sports bras, or leisure bras, as I do for lingerie and fashion bras.

    Oh HerRoom would be awesome the next pregnancy I have! I always get up into those sizes when I’m pregnant and breastfeeding and it is so hard to find a bra that actually fits! IT is such a frustration! I love this feature of the UCS!! That will take away a lot of frustration and headaches!

    Thank you! It is about time someone figured that out.

    I hate shopping for bras because it so danged hard to get the right fit. This will make it easier!
