Polls show at least eighty percent of women are wearing
the wrong bra. Use our checklist to find the bra that fits perfectly, feels fabulous
and looks great under your clothes.
1. Measure around your rib cage directly under-neath the bust,
holding the measuring tape straight around the body.
2. Measure completely around the fullest part of the bust
holding the tape measure straight and without pulling tight.
What can I do about cup "overflow"?
Cups should fit smoothly and snugly. If they aren't filled out, try a smaller size.
If they're overflowing, try a fuller shape for more coverage.
What can I do if my breasts push out to the sides or toward the center?
Try a larger cup size or a different style so there are no gaps or squeezes.
What can I do if my bra is not giving me enough support?
The lower edge of the band should anchor below the shoulder blades.
The lower the back fits, the more support you get.
The front of the band should lie flush with the breastbone
and fit straight across to support each breast.
What can I do if my bra feels too tight?
Run your finger under the front band. It should be snug, but not tight.
If it's tight, you need a larger band size, or a looser hook placement.
Machine wash warm with like colors. Do not bleach. Line dry. Do not iron.
The best thing to do is to put all bras in a lingerie bag before putting them in the washer. And never put bras in a dryer (unless you're looking for an excuse to get a new one). Air-drying them is best because it will save the elastic and help them retain their shape longer.
