What you need to know
A good-quality, well-adjusted bra in the right size can make all the difference, both in comfort and aesthetics. Your bra should feel like a second skin, and as such, should feel like it’s not there!
Knowing what to look at when trying a bra isn’t always obvious. Here are some tips to help ensure that you choose bras that fit you to a T.
One size doesn’t fit all!
Choosing the right size bra is of vital importance, but how the bra fits is equally essential. If you feel discomfort because your bra is not properly fitted, we’ve got the answer!
Here you’ll discover useful advice to solve the most frequent issues in bra fitting, and to help you find a bra that feels just right and looks just amazing
Tip #1 Back to basics: How to put on a bra
Lean forward and gently shake your shoulders while positioning your breasts evenly in the cups. Stand up straight, attach the hooks and make sure the band of the bra lies evenly and horizontally along your back.
Tip #2 Experiencing spillage? Smooth your curves.
Spillage is generally the result of a cup size that’s too small. Smooth out your curves by going with a larger cup, or choose a bra that offers more coverage.
Tip #3 Bulging on the sides? Smooth out your figure.
To obtain a smooth, tailored appearance, look for bras with side- and back-smoothing features, or go for a style with wider sides and a back made from supportive fabric.
Tip #4 Slipping or digging in? Treat your shoulders right!
If your straps are digging in, try loosening them, or choose a style with wider or cushioned straps. If your straps are slipping, try to tighten them up or look for a style with either a U-shaped back or a style with straps that are set closer at the back. You should be able to easily insert one finger between the strap and your shoulder.
Tip #5 Riding up in the back? It’s all in the band.
When it comes to support, the band is the most important part of the bra. It should be level all the way around to ensure optimal support. If the band is too loose, your back will ride up, and a lack of support could lead to sagging in the front. In this case, try loosening the straps, hooking the bra more snugly, or try a bra with a smaller band size.
Tip #6 Wrinkles in the front? Try a different cup.
Bra cups should be free of wrinkles. If you see extra fabric or wrinkly cups, try either a smaller cup size or a more rounded design that projects less.
Tip #7 Underwire pinching or digging in? Keep it snug against the ribs.
The underwire should gently cradle each breast and be neither too narrow nor too wide. It should fit snugly against your ribcage without pinching or digging. The center of the bra should also remain firmly against your sternum.
A GUIDE FOR THE PERFECT FIT
1) Cup size
Measure from the back to the front across the fullest part of your bust.
2) Band size
Measure from the back to the front around the ribcage, directly under the bustline.
Measurements that fall between 2 sizes can be accommodated by adjusting the back hooks.
