Why is it important to wear a correctly fitted bra?
What are the signs you are wearing the wrong size bra?
- You are getting marks or indents from your underwire
- The straps are cutting into you or slip off your shoulders
- The band across the back rides up and is not sitting level
- You can't tuck two fingers underneath the back of the band comfortably
- There is gaping or puckering in the cup area
- There is overflow in the cup area
How often should I be getting a bra fitting?
How to measure yourself to find out your bra size
The two measurements to take into consideration are underbust circumference (which will determine your band size) and bust circumference (which will determine your cup size).
- Using a measuring tape, measure around the body, directly below the bust. You can measure with or without a bra on, but it should be a non-padded or very lightly padded bra if so.
- Ensure the tape is level and pulled snugly but not tightly.
- To find your cup size, measure around the fullest part of your bust.

Which bra style is for me?
Because of the definition they give, you can instantly add two cup sizes to your figure (depending on the amount of padding) and can wear them with pretty much anything where you are looking to give the appearance of enhanced cleavage. You may have to go up a cup size in a push up bra to get the best fit.
