Bra Care Tips and Fittings

A good fitting bra can change your life!

Due to COVID restrictions we are unable to do bra fittings at this time - but we will be happy to help you in find sizes and styles that work for you.

Bra Care

  • You should have at least 3 bras that you rotate and wash every couple of days.
  • Hand wash your bras and hang them to dry.
  • High efficiency washing machines and dryers destroy the spandex.

 

Measuring

  • Measure around the fullest part of your bust line (wearing a non-padded or lightly padded bra).
  • Measure around your rib cage. The rib cage measurement will be your band size. If your measurement is an odd number, round up. If you prefer a looser band - add 2" to the measurement.
  • Subtract the rib cage number from the bust line number to determine cup size. For instance, 1” difference is A, 2” difference is B, and so on.
  • Keep in mind that this is just a starting point for us to finding a proper fitting bra. Many things factor in, such as fullness of breasts and tissue migration.

Types of Bras

Spacer Bras - As the newest trend, spacer bras are great for women that don’t have a lot of fullness. The cup stretches slightly in every direction to distribute the breast tissue evenly and also acts as a bit of a minimizer, because there is not a lot of projection.
Underwire Bras - For great support and projection, you can’t beat a good underwire bra. These days, many “wires” aren't even made of metal -- they're plastic or acrylic and they move nicely with your body. And for really large breasts, a cut and sewn 3 part bra is best.
Wireless Bras and Bralettes - These are usually designed for D cups and smaller, although, many companies make them in larger cups for women that insist on wireless.
Mastectomy Bras - These specialty bras have pockets to accommodate breast forms. Many women choose them as a regular bra, as they are usually wire free and if you have really uneven breasts, you can add a little padding to one side. We also carry mastectomy inserts and other accessories.
