A Good Fitting Bra Can Change Your Life
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 since high efficiency washing machines and dryers destroy spandex.
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.
