Love is in the air!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and to celebrate Main Street, My Street Bangor have partnered up with Menarys to host a Valentine’s Event in store on Saturday 11th February. As well as fantastic in store promotions on Perfume and Lingerie, customers will be treated to a glass of fizz between 11-3pm while they browse participating departments. There will also be an opportunity to view this season’s latest lingerie collections as models circulate the store. This is the perfect opportunity to avail of Menarys current £5 off Lingerie offer and get expertly fitted by the bra fitting ladies on the first floor.

We caught up with Karen Pearson from the Lingerie Department in Bangor to ask her a few top tips on choosing the perfect fit.

Q: How can you tell if you are wearing the wrong size bra?
A: There are 5 tell tale signs that your bra is the wrong size:
1. Wrinkling Cups
2. Riding up at the back
3. Gaping sides
4. Straps that either dig in or slip off
5. Underband is gaping or chafing

Q; How often should you get fitted?
A: Our body shape changes all the time, through weight loss, if you’ve put on a few pounds, as we get older or after pregnancy or maybe surgery. It’s good to get professionally fitted at least once a year. Not only is a proper fitting bra more comfortable and supportive but it can also make you look slimmer, improve posture and help your clothes sit better.

Q: Do you need to make an appointment?
A: No, the service is complimentary and very discreet. We are trained to measure and provide advice on choosing bras for maternity, nursing and post mastectomy.

Q: What’s new this season?
A: For spring/Summer 2017, we are seeing lots of really pretty and romantic floral print sets…these would make a perfect gift for Valentine’s day! Enter to our competition win £100 Lingerie Voucher for Menarys Bangor.
