Boobs, Bras, Tit Tape and Big Knickers

Author: Charlotte O'Shea

In a recent post I mentioned that Becky and I would consider a podcast specifically for Rock My Style.

We’re not quite there yet (but Jeez, these last 6 months have given us a lot to talk about) but we do have a podcast that we recorded for Rock My Wedding that we think you will enjoy. We interviewed head stylist Kelly from Rigby and Pellar and the content is relevant to all women – not just brides. If you don’t already know, Rigby and Pellar are the underwear retailer favoured by celebrities and the Royal family. They are renowned for fitting your bra perfectly, and offering unrivalled advice on what other (comfortable!) garments can offer you an improved silhouette.

We no longer accept paid advertising or sponsorship – we approached them, we know that they know their balconette from their plunge.

Kelly has over two decades of experience and Becky and I learned more about lingerie in a few hours than we have done in our entire lives. We are confident that you will find the podcast beneficial so I have included links where you can listen below. If you enjoy what you hear then we would love you to come back and let us know in the comments section – even if it’s in a few days time.

And of course please do let us know topics what you would like discussed, especially if you have been unable to find a podcast that resonates anywhere else.

Have a super weekend all!

  1. LOVED this podcast!!! Underwear in general is such a great subject – everyone has such different wants – and then different body shapes – you can be the same dress size as a friend, but totally different body shape and so totally different underwear size. A real game changer for me a few years ago – I had always been M&S fitted – and then i had lost weight – bought a new strapless bra which just gave zero support – so i was hmmm i should go get re-measured and happened to go to Debenhams – who fitted me as a 30F (bearing in mind i had been wearing a 36D and was expecting to maybe be told i was now a 34D) – my mind was blown and i thought the fitter had lost her marbles (even though the bra fitted amazingly and looks fantastic). Because i thought it was madness – i then came across BOB (boob or bust) group on facebook – again game changer – this group made me realise that i had been fitted correctly – it wasn’t madness – and well my boobs have never looked better!!!
    So apologies for the very long ramble – but yes ladies – more like this please – so many of us are wearing the wrong size underwear which is making us feel uncomfortable in many different ways – i mean who likes having to hoike their boobs back into their bra multiple times a day?? Loved it – more please!!

    1. Hi Janey! Thanks so much for your feedback! appreciate it’s a pain in the arse to come back and comment so it’s great to hear you enjoyed the podcast. And thank goodness you have the right size bra! My sister had a similar experience, was wearing like a 36C but is in fact a 30F! Here’s to better fitting bras for all x

  2. I really enjoyed the podcast and would like more of the same please. I learnt lots and have realised that I need to take more care of boobs! There isn’t a Rigby and Peller near me however, so any Manchester/North West recommendations will be gratefully received xxx

    1. Hi Sarah! Thanks so much for the feedback. In terms of fitting I haven’t found anyone better than R&P (I travelled to London from Warwickshire). Nearest to you is Harrogate which is still an hour and a half, but would be worth it, promise 🙂 Hopefully someone from the North West will come to the rescue who has had a great experience – have you tried Selfridges? They do have a good underwear department and I had a positive experience in the Birmingham branch when I bought some Calvin Klein (I already knew my size) xxx

    2. Bravissimo.
      Vanilla Fudge which is a small independent shop in Cheadle Hulme also AMAZING. They have a Facebook page. Not far off the A34

    3. I know it isn’t as fancypants as R&P, but I went into the Boux Avenue in the Arndale the other day and was so impressed! I’d been wearing a 34B for years and the fitter there had me in a 30D instead – it looked SO much better and was so comfy. Full marks to them – love the lighting in the fitting rooms too, so flattering (very helpful when you’re stood in your knick-knacks!).

  3. Also popping back to say I listened (nice to hear your voices btw!!). I thought it was good, although from a bridal point of view I was surprised nothing was mentioned about dieting and changing shapes in terms of wedding dresses and bra fitting as a little aside, but I really did enjoy listening to it. I just wanted to say it was really good and would definitely love to hear more about a RMS podcast, although what the content should be I don’t know. It is a tricky one as there are so many interiors/lifestyle/food/parenting etc podcasts out there, but I guess what I really look for is a good interview with people of interest. That could be on flexible working, or other job-based topics like how to manage working from home, or how to break the glass ceiling. Or it could be a gardening topic, or home cooking or whatever. It is difficult to be original, and I’m not sure it has to be to be honest, but I think something true to the brand would be really interesting – as in a good, honest discussion on an interesting topic with no hidden agenda 🙂 I personally would definitely listen!

    1. Hi Annie! Thanks so much for your feedback. We’re not trying to be unique with content – as you said, it would be impossible! but definitely honest and interesting – I love a discussion on every-day stuff where folks are genuinely passionate about their subject. On the bridal dieting, we avoid this at all costs – always have. I don’t think anyone should feel they have to diet/change their shape for anyone or any event. I accept that people do, and that’s absolutely fine – you have to be happy in your own skin. I would just rather not mention it/encourage brides to even think/consider it. x

      1. A very good point!! I also don’t agree with the dieting, and didn’t myself, but so many friends have done so. Thanks for the explanation, makes perfect sense!
