Bras up… Listen up ladies. How well does your bra fit you? You might not know it, but there is a good chance you’re wearing the wrong size. A lot of women end up wearing the incorrect size and fit for a variety of reasons, from getting bad advice from professional fitters to sticking with the same size even as their breasts change. The truth is, it’s unlikely you have a single size that will always fit you. Different brands and bras have slightly different sizing, and your boobs can change throughout the month and at other times too. But why is wearing a good bra so important? A good bra is hard to come by but we hope that we’re able to fix to fix that – Our lingerie offering comes in all shape and sizes, you just need to know what to look out for. Our number one advice would be to snap up a couple of bras when you find it in your size!
Did you know?
More than 70% of all women wear the wrong bra size. A poorly fitted bra can cause back pain, headaches, stretch marks, permanent grooves in the shoulders, bruises under the armpits and loss of elasticity in the breast tissue! A woman’s bra size changes at least six times during her lifetime. Support comes from the band, not the straps. Make sure you’re wearing the right band size. You should own a minimum of 3 bras; the one you’re wearing, one ready for wear and the one that needs washing.
– Give your bra a break! To maintain elasticity, avoid wearing your bra two days in a row. This allows the spandex to regain its shape. – Wash in cold water! Wash by hand in cold water with a soap made for delicate fabrics. Regular soaps or bleach can harm fabrics and laces. – Extra Protection. When washing your bra in a washing machine, attach the back hooks and place the bra in a lingerie bag to project the fabrics. Select the coolest water and most gentle cycle. – No dryers. EVER! Hang to dry. Dryers distort cups and cause wire casing to shrink, weakening underwire and making it break. – Keep the shape. Store your bras in smooth finish drawers with enough room to avoid distorting the cup. When travelling, keep your bra together by placing the cups into one another.

Solve your bra problems
– Straps digging in or slipping off? Both scenarios are the result of a band that’s too big. Try sizing down. – Are there gaps or are you sagging? The cup should hug your curves. Try going down a cup size. – Is your underwire digging in? The underwire should fit flat against your rib-cage. If it’s uncomfortable, try a bigger band size. – Is your band riding up or digging in? Your band should be comfortably snug. Try a bigger band size if it’s digging in and a smaller band size if it’s riding up. – Are you popping out? If you’re overflowing at the top or the sides, try a larger cup size.
