maryalisecarol asked: Hi! I love your blog, and I've checked out your FAQ, so hopefully this isn't a repeat question, but I'm a college student (from Chicago) in a rural area of Missouri. I've just recently been exploring lingerie shopping, and I love it, but my only real option while at school for most of the year is shopping online, and I haven't been able to really nail down how my size varies with each retailer. Your reviews help immensely. Do you think product reviews on websites are accurate enough for a fit?

Hello!

I think product reviews can be helpful for fit, but individual trial and error is unavoidable unless you’re lucky enough to have a blogger body double.

For product reviews on websites, it all depends on how the company manages/approves reviews and how many there are. I know that HerRoom allows negative reviews, for example, so I tend to give all their product reviews more weight. Compare that to a site like Adore Me where everything seems to be rated 4 or 5 stars. That trips my caution filter because there’s no such thing as a 100% perfect product. Nordstrom’s review section also allows reviewers to share things like if a product ran large or small, which, when an item has enough reviews, is useful for telling customers which direction to go.

However, none of that replaces actually getting the garment on your body. So while website reviews are a supplemental tool, how accurate they are for you depends entirely on how much you match the reviewers.

BRATABASE. Bratabase is a gem.

The effectiveness of Bratabase depends a LOT on your size. It’s a more effective resource for some size groupings than others. It also is more effective for some brands than others (for example,the brands I wear most often are rarely reviewed). Reviews are heavily skewed towards small back/full bust, so if that describes you, then yeah, they’re great.
