So you may be wondering what bra health is all about. This topic only seems to be thought of or discussed when you are in search for new undergarments. There are simple tips in helping you find the right bra fit. You may think about this when shopping for underwear or when chatting with girlfriends. You may only deal with the fact that you’re not happy with your bra selection when you get fed up with constantly adjusting your straps, secretly pulling up your breasts at your work computer or when you experience pain.
For women in this situation, the first garment that’s taken off once arriving home from work is “their bra.” Most ladies have a favourite bra and sometimes we wear it every day (not recommended by the way). The best approach to have a selection of properly fitted bras and rotate wearing them. The solution to good bra health is all about the right fit. As women we all have unique needs.
Here is a list of expectations we have when it comes to our bras:
- Support and lift the breasts “The Art of Perky”
- Improve the shape of your breasts
- Look sexy and womanly
- Improve the fit and fall of your attire
- Cover up under sheer or clingy tops
- Maximize or minimize cup size
- Reduce sagging
- Create cleavage
- Restrict bouncing movement during gym workout sessions
One bra isn’t going to deliver on the list of expectations above. So here’s what you should look for in your different bra style choices.
Your bra should support from the band and have a close fit around you. When you’re fitted, the stylist will measure under your breasts for a close fit.
For the best support your true band size is what you should wear. If you fit in between inches go up to the next size; for example if you’re 35.5’’ your band size should be 36’’.
All your breasts should fit in the cup from the centre all the way around to your underarm. If there’s spillage on top or over the sides this isn’t a correct fit. The “”four boob look” for more cleavage just isn’t a good look. Celebrate your curves in a well fitted bra and this will enhance your overall look.
The gore (where the under wire sits between your breasts) should rest nicely on your skin not away from your body. If it doesn’t sit comfortably against your body then you need a bigger cup.
Adjusting your straps to a comfortable fit on your shoulders helps balance the support from the band. However don’t adjust so much that it pulls the back clasp up your back, doing this contributes to poor posture.
