THE FITTING ROOM

Welcome to our fitting room where we hope to assist you with having the correct fit and also shape with your lingerie. Most people in fact anything as high as 80% of women wear the incorrect fitting bra.

The most important thing to remember is that the bra should be a snug fit. By this we mean that you should not be able to pull more than half an inch away from your body at the shoulder straps or rib band. If this is the case try adjusting the bra straps to be tighter and place the back of the bra on a tighter hook. If this does not solve your problem you need to go down a backsize.

Also the bra should fit flat against the ribcage between the cups. If this is not the case then the bra you are wearing needs a bigger cup. There should also be no bulging over the top or sides of the bra, even if you are wearing a balconette or plunge bra. Again, if this is the case a bigger cup size is necessary. We recommend that you place a t-shirt or lycra fitting top over your new bra to compare shape and style. This way it is easier to spot any bulging.

If at all possible, have an afternoon out at a highstreet store and try on as many different types and styles of bras as you can- making a note of the sizes in each style that have a comfy fit. Not all manufacturers use the same sizing guide so if one size fits in one style and brand it may not be the case for another! So be sure to note Brand Style and size for future references.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a bra that fits just right. With a shape that brings out the best in your figure, plus support that fills you with confidence and comfort. Below are just a few helpful tips for your customers to ensure they enjoy the perfect fit; Regular Fittings The best way to find a bra that always complements your curves is to measure up regularly – at least every six months. Check your straps A good bra has a comfortable strap. If they dig in to your shoulders, they’re too tight. Avoid a double bust If your cup size is too small, your breasts can pop over the top, creating a double bust effect. A good-fitting bra avoids puckering and overspill. Say no to drooping If the unsupported part of your breast droops forward, your cup or band size may be too big.

A good fit gives you the best shape. Is your underband oversized? If your band’s not level and rides up at the back, it’s probably too big. A good fitting band is level and snug around your body. Keep your underwire close Your underwire should be flat against your chest. If it’s sitting away from your body, your cup size may be too small. No digging Your breasts should be fully contained in your cup. If the size is too small, you could feel the underwire digging in to your body. New style, new size? Strange but true: Whenever you choose a different bra style, you may need it in a different size. When you’re switching from a plunge to a balcony, for example, you might find that the next size up fits better. So make sure you experiment with size every time you buy a new bra. Please find below our bra fitting advice covering all of the above and more;

Measuring

women undoing bra

Take a tape measure and measure under the bust with the tape horizontal across the back. Breath out until there's no air left in the lungs and take a comfortable measurement.

Then take the bust measurement so that the tape just touches across the nipples. The cup size is determined by the difference in inches between the two numbers .

Take your underband measurement, then read across to find your cup measurement, which is listed under the correct cup size.
