Default M&S - have a free bra fitting and receive 5 off when you spend 35 on lingerie

Apologies if this has already been posted on the site - forgive me as this is my first post.

At my local M&S store today they were offering 5 off when you spent 35 on lingerie if you had a free bra fitting. None of the staff mentioned this promotion to me despite me going into the fitting room to try some bras on and purchasing 4. If I had been made aware of it then I would have had the free fitting but only noticed a poster when I was leaving the store with the necessary purchases in my bag. (New Years Resolution - will only buy clothes this year when there is a need not just because I want them...)

The manager was very good and agreed to refund 5 when I complained but it may be worth looking out for this offer and asking staff about it if you need new undies.

I think it is running to the end of January.
No more buying unnecessary toiletries: Jan '14 IN 0 OUT 4 (-4)

If I needed to get some underwear for my wife (I don't have one, 'tis theoretical) would M&S give me (a male) a bra fitting (very very slight man boobs) in order than I could get 5 off my purchases?

Get fitted there, but ignore everything they say. Go back later having been fitted elsewhere and buy the correct size with the money off!

I agree - an independent lingerie store, Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis, La Senza will all do much better, more accurate bra measuring & fitting than M&S.

Apparently at M&S I am a 34B.....but am a 32DD everywhere else, and my "overspill" is now in control while my bra does not ride up my back

The universal mistake M&S Bra fitters make is insisting it should fit on the middle hooks. When you first get a bra it should just fit on the outside hooks. This allows 2 further hooks to use as the bra stretches. Also you may find the size that fits in one design will be too loose in another. Anything too loose but with the right cup size try a smaller bra size & go up a cup size or two.

The under bust chest measurement is the bra size then approx 1 cup size per inch compared to the fullest bust measurement. (non of this add 5 inches if it is an odd measurement & 4 if even then the cup being whatever the difference is ie 32 + 4/38 = 36B). This aught to be a 32 DD or 32F.

but the correct size in M&S is likely to be completely different to the size you're in from anywhere else!

I won't use M&S because they are quite happy to fit you into what they have, rather than what you actually need.
