So anyway, after my exam yesterday I went to the Bull Ring (shopping centre) because there were a few things I needed. When I got there, I noticed that Boux Avenue had opened a shop. Basically, it's an underwear shop that not only has nice underwear, but also has my size (which is very rare for a non-online shop) and is reasonably priced. I cannot recommend this shop enough if you have a hard-to-find bra size (back sizes go down to 30 and cup sizes up to H). They have a webshop, but if there's one in your area, it's definitely worth paying a visit, because it's a really nice shop, and it's always good to be able to try things on.
I got measured for my size, and it was surprisingly not awkward at all. The woman measuring me was super friendly and helpful (as were all of the staff). My back size is normally 28 and they only went down to 30, so I had to go up a back size and down a cup size, but it's still a lot closer than what most shops have. I tried on a few things, and soon found what's now my favourite bra. It fits so well!
The fitting rooms had different lighting settings, which I thought was really cool.
They wrap your purchases in pretty tissue paper then put fake scented petals in the bag with it.
I wish I took photos of the shop, because it looks so nice. They also have an old fashioned telephone that's hooked up to the fitting room intercoms, which I thought was really cute.
I also got these glorious things from Holland & Barrett. They're so much better than banana chips.
