Are you wearing the correct bra size?

We all know the statistic: 80% of women wear the wrong bra size. In most cases we choose a back size way too big and a too small cup size.  Remember that what you wear underneath your clothes is just as (if not more) important than the clothes themselves. Wearing the wrong undergarments can ruin your outfit and make you extremely uncomfortable.

Here are a few tips to check that you are wearing the correct size bra:

The bra band fits snugly and horizontally around your chest/ribs. If it rides up at the back your band size is too big.

The underwire is flat against your body and breastbone and not poking into you breast or sides.

The breasts fit smoothly into the cup, there are no folds or wrinkles or empty spaces in the cup (if this is the case you need a smaller cup size).

Your breasts are not overflowing from the top of the cup (double bubble) or spilling over and out to the sides (if this is the case you need a bigger cup size).

The shoulder straps should sit comfortably and should not be digging in to the shoulders. The back band should be carrying more than 80% of the weight of the breasts – the shoulder straps are only there to support.

When lifting both your arms the bra should stay securely under the breast and not ride up over the breast.  You should be able to lift your arms over your head and jump around without the band or underwire budging or exposing underboob.

Wearing the wrong bra size can cause many problems including: neck ache, shoulder ache, back ache, skin irritation caused by straps digging in, breast pain and sagging.

Wearing the right size bra will be comfortable, supportive, lift the bust revealing the waist to give a slimmer appearance, fill the woman with confidence, create a better posture and a smooth silhouette under clothing.

Every woman deserves a well fitting bra!
