As around 80% of the UK population are wearing the wrong size bra I thought it might be helpful to put together some hints and tips so you can work out how your bra is fitting and if it’s time to go and get a bra fitting! A well fitting bra gives you a good shape and lift, can make you feel great and can actually help you to look slimmer!
Bear in mind when buying a new bra that different makes and styles can vary in fit. Different fabrics can also alter the fit as some fabrics have more stretch to them. A new bra should fit perfectly using the first hooks so that you can adjust accordingly as it stretches with wear, washing and time. Different types of bras suit different shapes – so, several things to think about before even trying any bras on!
So – which bra will suit your shape?

How to check if your bras fit –
The underband is riding up your back – the band size is too big, go down a band size or two.
Breasts are spilling out of the side of the cups, over the cups or ‘double busting’ – the cup size is too small, go up a cup size or two.
Underwires are not sitting flat against your breast bone – the cup size is too small – go up a cup size.
The cups are wrinkled or puckered – the cup size is too big – go down a cup size or two.
