Good Fitting Bra

You can’t feel confident if your bra is gaping, slipping off your shoulders or bits are poking out underneath. A good fitting bra will provide comfort, support and most importantly, help you feel confident from the inside out.

But just because a bra fitted you last year, it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to wear it forever. Our bodies change all the time, so it’s a good idea to check your favourite style still fits like a glove every six months or so. 

With that in mind, we’ve got a few tips to get your bra feeling comfy again. All you need is your favourite bra, a mirror and our handy guide. Prepare to wave goodbye to ill-fitting bras forever!

Top tips for checking if your bra fits

Ill-fitting cups? Straps slipping off? Underband riding too high? About the wires?

Go up a back size if:
• Your breasts are spilling out of the cups at the front or under the arms

Loosen your bra straps if:
• They are digging into your shoulders
• They feel tight and are causing the cups to dig into your breasts

Go up a back size if:
• The breast tissue under your arms is bulging over the underband

Go up a back size if:
• The wires are digging into your your breast tissue
• The wires are lifting away from your breastbone

Go down a back size if:
• The cups are wrinkling or gaping

Tighten your bra straps if:
• They are slipping off your shoulders
• If you have narrow shoulders, avoid balcony bras as these have wide-set straps

Go down a back size if:
• Your breasts are showing beneath the underband
• The underband is riding up your back

Go down a back size if:
• The wires are slipping down your body, towards your waist
