Correct Bra Size - No matter how chic your clothing is, how perfect your blowout or manicure is, or even if you’re accessorized like a fashion editor, if you don’t have a great fitting bra, it really doesn't matter what you wear.
Why? A beautiful look begins behind the scenes with great undergarments. It's akin to building a beautiful new home - without the best possible foundation, the outside doesn't look as sleek and tailored as it should.
Bras and beautiful lingerie that fit well act as the support and foundation - they help you look fabulous, from your bottom layer to your finishing touches.
Want to know more? The best place to start is with the bras that you've chosen. Are they the right styles for the occasion and your clothing? Once you've decided on the types of bras you want, you can then focus on the size.
Here, we share the tips and tricks for getting the correct bra size, and mastering the art of a beautiful look no matter which styles you've chosen.
You’re in the fitting room, and you’ve found a bra that looks beautiful, fits well, and feels comfortable. So that’s it, right?
Wrong. Don’t make the mistake of buying a bra without slipping a top on over it to see what it looks like under your clothing.
What looks great on it’s own might give you an awkward shape, lumpy texture, or unflattering silhouette under your clothing.
So, it's worth it to take a few extra minutes and see if the bras you've chosen pass the clothing test.
If you didn’t bring the right top for trying over your bras, ask a salesperson to bring you a simple camisole that you can slip on.
Even after you’ve found your correct bra size and measurements, you’ll still need to try on several styles each time you shop to make sure you’ve got the right fit.
Sizes vary A LOT from brand to brand, and style to style, so while you might be a 36C in a Victoria’s Secret bra you may have to try a sister size in a Calvin Klein or Triumph style.
This means you size up or down one band size and up or down one cup size. In this case you might try either a 34 or 38 band, and a B or D cup.
A sister size keeps your band-to-cup ratio the same, so you’re not choosing a size that’s out of sync with your usual proportions.
Get the perfect look that everyone wants by choosing a bra that fits well and moves with your body as you go through your day. How do you do this? In the fitting room make sure to:
These tips will help ensure your bra isn’t riding up, slipping down, or causing you to pop out of the cups.
When bra shopping, don't be tied to the tag size.
Remember that the best bra size is the one that helps you feel secure and supported, which makes you comfortable and confident in knowing that you’ll look great all day long.
