Bra Fit 101

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR BRAS?

If you said no, you’re not alone. If you said yes, you are one of only a few. Bras are one of the hardest items to shop for. Many women struggle with finding the perfect fit. In fact, a staggering 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size right now.

We’re on a mission to change the way you think about bras. You deserve a bra that fits well and feels good. We want to help you find a bra (or two, or three…) that fits so incredible you forget you’re wearing one. You should never have to settle for a less than perfect fit.

We’re here to take the stress and guesswork out of bra shopping and make it easy for you, so we’ve created a place for you to find the resources you need for bra fitting, bra sizing, bra shopping, and lingerie care.

So, before you buy another bra, answer this:

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST BRA FITTING?

Have you had a bra fitting in the last six months? We always recommend getting a bra fitting before buying new bras. You wouldn’t buy a pair of jeans without trying them on first, right? Bras and jeans have something in common – both are challenging to shop for and fit differently from brand to brand (and even style to style).

If you’re not getting bra fittings every six months, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Your bra size will likely change several times throughout your life. A bra fitting can help you figure out what bra size you need, and which styles work best for you. Bra fittings can save you time and money. No need to order a bunch of bras and hope for the best – a professional bra fitting can solve your bra fit problems in an hour or less.

HOW TO MEASURE FOR A BRA OR BUSTIER

-Put on your favorite unlined bra. To get the most accurate measurements, do not use a strapless, push-up, wire-free, minimizing, or sports bra. It's best to choose a bra that is free of padding.

-A mirror is very helpful for measuring properly. Being able to see what you're measuring helps with accuracy!

-Remember that your bra size is a guide. Bra sizes can vary from brand to brand and style to style. You may wear a different band or cup size depending on the style or brand.

-You're under bust and over bust (measured across the fullest part of the bust) measurements will help to determine your bra size. The chest size (above armhole) can help if you are in between sizes; it can determine whether you should go up or down a band size.

BAND SIZE

Wrap the measuring tape right underneath your bra, all the way around, along the bra band. The tape should be at the same level from front to back and the bra band should be parallel to the floor. (This is where a mirror comes in handy!) Relax and pull the tape snug, but not too tight or too loose. This is your under bust measurement. It will help determine your band size. 

 

The band provides the majority of a bra's support. To ensure the band fits you properly, look for a snug but not uncomfortable fit when trying on bras. You should be able to fit two fingers between your skin and the bra band. Anything tighter could be uncomfortable!

Make sure your breast tissue is completely in the cup. Pull breast tissue from the outer side of each cup and scoop it into the cup. Sometimes it's easier to lean forward while doing this. This simple trick can completely change the fit of a bra and help you determine if it's the right size. Don't be afraid to scoop and swoop!

CUP SIZE

 Wrap the measuring tape over the fullest part of your bust making sure the tape is lined up with the top of the band in the back. If you're wearing a bra that sits lower in the back (so you're not able to line up the top of the band with the tape measure), pull the tape as straight around as possible at the fullest part of the bust, all the way around. Make sure to leave a little room- the tape shouldn't feel too tight or too loose. This is your over bust measurement. It will help determine your cup size.

CHEST SIZE

Wrap the measuring tape all the way around, lining up the tape with the top of the bra's hook and eye closure. Have the tape follow the top of the bra to the front underneath where the strap attaches. This is your chest measurement. It can help determine if the band size is a good fit for you.
