Tips on finding the right fit

Tips on finding the right fit

The best way to find out whether a bra fits is of course to try it on. Here are a few tips that will help you when you try on your bra:

  • Almost all women have one breast larger than the other. Always choose the cup size of the larger breast and adjust the bra by making the shoulder strap over the smaller breast a little shorter. If the difference is significant, it might also be a good idea to buy a bra with removable push-up pads and simply remove the pad on the bigger side.
     
  • Make sure your bra straps are adjusted in such a way that the band lies under the shoulder blades and runs around your body at the same height level. If one side is higher, or if the back is higher than the front, adjust the straps to compensate for the difference. If this does not improve things, try a larger band width (e.g. 80AAA instead of 75AA).
     
  • The centre front between the cups should lay flush against the breastbone. If it does not, try a bigger cup size. Another reason why the centre front does not lay flush might be that you are wearing a wireless bra. Since there is not wire to keep the bra flat, that can be a reason, too.
     
  • The cups should enclose your breasts comfortably and not be too tight at the top or at the sides. If the underwire digs into your body, that usually means the cups are to small.
     
  • Sizes may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer and the way in which the bra is made. We always make every effort to specify the sizes as exactly as possible.
     
  • Use the bra size you calculated as a guideline. There will be manufacturers whose bras fit you better, and others from whom the same size is not as comfortable.
