The Top 10 Fitting Tips For Your Brassiere

Aug 8, 2008
The vast majority of women wear bras. Given this fact, it is pretty odd that the overwhelming majority of us wear the wrong size. The following tips can help you find the perfect brassiere for your bust size and shape.

The lower the band around your back is set, the more support you will get. Most women have it to high. Try to place it so that it rides below the shoulder blades to the greatest extent possible. Loosen your straps as necessary.

When buying bras, take into account the time of the month. Depending on where you are in the month, your breasts may increase or decrease in size. Make sure you buy bras for each period of time to avoid problems with sizing issues.

The vast majority of women wear the wrong size bra. The biggest problem is fitting, but manufactures are to blame as well. Why? They don't use a universal sizing system. As a result, don't assume that a particular size for one brand will be the same with another brand.

Reach for the sky! Once you have the bra on and fitted, reaching for the sky is your final fitting test. If you come out of the cup in any way, you either need to move up in cup size or go with a different style. You should be fully covered.

Take a seat. There are many little tests you can do to see if the bra you are wearing is fitted correctly. With this test, you literally take a seat. When doing so, the bra should not change position. It should not slide on your shoulder or up and down your back.

Fitting a bra can be a real challenge. If you do not entirely fill the cup of the bra, you should go down in size. You can still create the looks you want using different types of bras, but the support is a must.

One of my breasts is bigger than the other. A very common problem, the only answer is to go with a bra that fits the best and get it with microfiber stretch material. There is usually enough give in the bra to get a very good fit.

Finding an underwire bra that fits comfortably can be a real challenge. Poking is a huge issue. Many newer bra models incorporate tricky little inventions that stop the poking action. Make sure to check them out if you have problems with poking.

For some women, there is just no escaping strap fitting problems. They are just always too tight. One answer is to try pads. Yes, there are now bra shoulder strap pads that can provide a buffer between those straps and your tender shoulders.

What is the most comfortable bra out there? The undisputed answer is the sports bra. The total focus is support, but it is not exactly seductive. A better compromise for most women is the full cup bra. It provides a ton of support with a bit of style.

At the end of the day, the best bra for you is the one that fits well and provides you with support and comfort. Do not fall for suggestions that there is one brand or type that is best. It is all specific to the person in question.
