Before today I would have said that I have small boobs and that the only bra for me would be a bra with padding. That was before I went to one of Peter Jones' new underwear consultations.

Peter Jone's new service focuses on the Baroque-inspired lace and delicate sheer silks seen on the catwalks this season and the fitters explain how to choose the best lingerie to flatter your figure and your outfit.

My fitter Michelle has been working as a bra fitter at Peter Jones for twelve years and my goodness does she know how to do her job. Before I even take off my coat and scarf Michelle has told me that I'm wearing the wrong size.

"What size are you wearing?" she asks me. "36B" I say. Well apparently that is wrong, still wearing my coat she tells me that I'm a 32 and when I take off my coat she adds a C to that 32. I couldn't have felt any more like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman! She did measure me once we were in a changing room and confirmed I was a 32.

Michelle then went around the lingerie department and grabbed me every style of bra so I could see how different shapes and styles would give me a nice shape, and she also grabbed some ones that wouldn't be so great so I would know what to avoid.

Balcony, balconette, T-Shirt, wired, not wired, seam free, the types of bra available to us young ladies is just a tad mind blowing.

After spending an hour with Michelle it's amazing how much you can discover about your own body. And I would go as far to saw that finding the perfect fitting bra is actually life changing, so much so that I did not leave empty handed.

Nicky Hambleton-Jones bra picks

At this time of year it is especially important to ensure that your lingerie is comfortable, flattering and fits you well.

When we show slightly more flesh than usual it is imperative that your bust is well-supported and you aren’t showing an unsightly panty line.

Finding the right bra can be extremely stressful and difficult which probably explains why 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra. (Watch this video to check if your bra is adequately supporting your bust
