How to choose a new bra and ensure the best possible fit.

It’s as simple as A, B,C (oh! and D)

A. When choosing an underwire bra make sure that underwire sits nicely underneath your breasts not on them.

B. Check that the bra cups sit smoothly along your skin and cover your breasts so that there is  no spillage at the front or bulging out at the sides.

C. Ensure that the back strap or underband is flat, firm and flush to your back and in a comfortable position. Then to check for a perfect fit, do up the bra on the middle hook and you should not be able to slide your hand easily underneath that back strap.

D. Adjust the shoulder straps whilst standing straight. They should not be too tight or loose but you should be able to fit two fingers under them.

Choose from the best Bra brands at Chums – the one stop shop.

There’s a top quality bra to fit you perfectly in your size and price range.

Cross Your Heart (but not hope to die!) bras from Playtex and Playtex Fits Beautifully Corselettes and Girdles are also available from the Chums Online Store.

Chums Shoppers Prize Value and Quality Over Designer Labels

A recent survey of Chums customers has highlighted that they value quality and reliability over fashionable brand names. They also choose Chums for the wide selection of sizes available on many lines.

More than 2,200 Chums shoppers completed the recent survey questionnaire, which was designed to gauge attitudes to clothes shopping online. The vast majority of respondents were aged 55 and over, with almost 50% in the 65 to 74 age demographic alone.

Perhaps unsurprisingly they favoured value for money and comfort over style and designer labels.

Less than 5% of answerers chose ‘style’ as the most important factor when shopping for clothes online. Incredibly, less than 1% chose designer labels.
Of course, a number of prestigious clothing labels are available from the Chums online store, including Farah, Wolsey, Tootal, Pegasus and Skopes. But at Chums, these brands are available for a fantastically low price.

But when asked to choose the most important factor when shopping for clothes online, the majority of Chums shoppers picked price and not designer or brand.

More than 33% of respondents chose ‘value’ as the most important factor, while close to 25% said that ‘quality’ was the most important factor.

Low prices can be deceptive if clothing is poor in quality. Some low cost retailers offer clothing which only lasts for one or two washes. This means that customers who had been looking for a bargain, wind up spending more to replace these items.

At Chums, quality clothing remains comfortable and good looking, long after the season’s end; making great value even greater.

With over 20% of the vote, the third most important factor when shopping for clothes online was ‘size’. Here the Chums store really comes into its own; having garnered a fine reputation over the years for its massive selection of sizes.

The Chums ethos has always centred on the idea that everybody deserves to look and feel great. That’s why they specialise in clothing lines with wide varieties of sizes, large and small.

Pay a visit to http://www.chums.co.uk today to explore the brand new Chums clothing collection for winter 2013. You’ll find high quality, low cost clothing for men and women; in addition to textiles, lifestyle and mobility products or gift ideas for Christmas and beyond.

‘Fabulous Fashionistas’ Highlight Chums as Fashion Store for Older Women

So it speaks volumes that one of the ladies interviewed mentioned shopping at Chums.

With a brand new catalogue of attractive fashion pieces for older women, all available for reassuringly low prices, the Chums online store is more popular than ever before.
