Rumor has it that 80% women wear the wrong size and you definitely don’t want to be one of them. When we talk about wearing the correct size, what do we really mean? Most women think they are wearing the correct size and yet their straps tend to fall or their breast bulge over the cup or the under band tends to rise up at the back. Yes, you heard it right. All these super relatable scenarios are signs of wearing the wrong size.
The band provides most of the bra support. The band around the chest should be level front and back all the way around your ribcage. It needs to be firm so It provides adequate support but it also needs to be comfortable so ensure the band is neither too lose nor too tight. If the band rides up from the back then it is too big for you. You should try adjusting the straps in that case. However, if you feel adjusting the straps is not supporting your bust then you can tighten the hook at the back. If this doesn’t work too then we definitely recommend you to try one sister size down which means you can try a bigger band and go one cup smaller. For instance, if you wear a 38D, you could try 40C.
- The bra band should fit firmly, parallel to the cups
- The band should be at the same level all around your body
- The band should not ride up from the back
A well-fitting cup is the key to a good fitting bra. The cup should contain the whole of the breast with no creases and no cleavage on show. If your boobs are spilling out of the cups or from the sides or being squashed then the cup it too small for you. In that case you should try one cup bigger. For instance, if you wear 40D then you could try 40E. Whereas if there are creases or wrinkling of the fabric then it suggests the cup is big for you so you should consider trying one cup smaller. In cases where one cup fits perfectly and the other doesn’t then you should adjust the straps of that side as it is very common for one breast to be slightly bigger or smaller than the other one. In case of wired bras, the underwire should go right around the contour of the breast sitting flat against your ribs without digging into the breast tissue.
- The breast should fit neatly into the cup with no excess of flesh spilling out
- The fabric should not show any crease of wrinkle
- Underwired cup should right around the contour of the breast sitting flat against your ribs
