Did You Know?? - Bra Fitting Advice & Frequently Asked Questions

by Poinsettia Style April 26, 2016

Did you know??

According to experts, 75% of women regularly wear the wrong size bra. The best way to avoid falling into this 'ill-fitted' bra category is with an bi-annual visit to a trained bra fitting expert.

Q: Why are my breasts bulging over top and sides of the cup?

A: This is a sure sign that your cup size is too small. Breast tissue extends towards the armpit and your breasts should be totally encased in the cups.

Q: Why does my bra ride up my back and move when I move?

A: This is a very common with improperly fitted bras and is caused by the the bra band size being to big. The main support in a bra comes from the band which should lie snug against the body.

Q: Why is the underwire uncomfortable under my arms?

A: This usually means your cup size it too small. Certain brands are manufactured with a wider underwire, these are ideal for people with a fuller bust.

Q: Why are the cups wrinkly with space at the top?

A: This means that your cup size is too big. A cup that fits properly will not sag or wrinkle.

Q: Does tightening my straps make my bra more supportive?

A: The main support in a bra comes from the band. The shoulder straps should lie comfortably and not dig into your skin. If you feel you need to tighten the straps for support it may mean your band is too big.

Q: How often should I check my bra size?

A: We recommend that you are sized once every six months. Our breast size changes for many different reasons including changes in weight, aging and pregnancy. For information on pregnancy changes click here

Q: Can a full busted woman wear a strapless bra?

A: Absolutely! We carry strapless bras from size A-K cup.

Q: Should I buy a bra that fits on the tightest hook?

A: You should buy a bra that fits snugly on the loosest hook. The bra band will stretch over time and this will ensure that you can tighten the band when it does.
