What Makes A Good Fitting Bra?

  • Band: Most of the support comes from the band, so it should be perfect, neither too tight nor too loose.
  • Wires: When trying a bra, ensure the wires are sitting on your ribs, not on your breasts.
  • Cups: Choose cups which provides you full coverage, without any overspill or gaping.
  • Straps: Straps provides only 10 percent of support. They should be sitting comfortably on your shoulders without any digging or slipping off. Use a rule of thumb, if your two fingers fit comfortably under your straps then that’s right for you.
  • Bridge: The center front part should be flat, no popping out should be there.
