Catherine Barker – a very satisfied customer

I cannot thank Jan at Oo La La enough for the excellent and professional help she gave me in choosing a new bra.

In 2012 I underwent a heart valve replacement operation which left me with some very red and angry scars on my chest. I have tried everywhere to find a bra that did not irritate these scars.

Jan was recommended to me when we purchased my daughter’s wedding dress from Julia at Elegance Bridal Studio in Barnsley.

I told Jan I had been measured elsewhere as a 44B cup. She took one look at me and said I don’t think you are that big. When she measured me I was a 40D cup. She fitted me with an everyday bra and as soon as I put it on it was like slipping into “a pair of comfy gloves”. It fitted so well it was unbelievable. Jan even text me the morning after to make sure I was still as happy as when I had left the shop and that the bra was not causing any discomfort around the scars. I have never had such kindness shown to me when purchasing a bra before. I was not at all embarrassed about my scars as I have been in other shops.

I have since returned and purchased two further bras and my daughter and I will be purchasing all our underwear from Oo La La to wear under our wedding outfits.
