Bra Sizing!?!?

Up to 80% of women are wearing the wrong-sized bra !!!

A very common issue (80% is a high number!) is that many women wear bras with band size which is too big with a cup size that is too small. By doing so, the breasts are supported by the shoulder straps, which will cause a lot of unnecessary pressure on the shoulders. With a bra that fits right, the breasts are supported from underneath and not from the shoulder straps. This way it will be almost no pressure on the shoulders and comfortable. 

We hear you ask, how can I tell at a glance if I’m wearing the wrong size?

Well, often bras will be seen travelling up the back if the band is too big, and this offers no support to the breasts. Remember, the most important area of any bra fit is getting the band right first, with only enough space to get two fingers underneath.

If the bra is too small it will be obvious in the cup, where spillage can be seen at the cleavage area, under the arms, and across the back. Because the breast is mainly made up of 75% fat and 25% glandular tissue, the cup area is the first area in which you would see this.

Cups should fully encase the breasts, sit fully back at the centre front, and definitely have no wires digging into any of the breast!

The best way to check if your bra is fitting correctly is lift up your arms twist your body and the bra should remain perfectly in place…(and smile)!
