3Check The Fit

Once you have ordered and received the bra it is time to check that it fits correctly. We have listed some general fitting tips which will help you decide if the size is correct for you.

  1. Underband should be snug fitting with only just enough room to fit two fingers under.
  2. Straps should be adjusted when fitting to ensure cups and underband are positioned correctly on the body.
  3. Wires should sit flat to the body and not sit on the round of the bust.
  4. Cups should be completely filled with no bulges or empty spaces.

Here are some photos of a bra which fits correctly:

4Common Problems

Listed below are some common fit problems with advice on what to do if your bra falls into this problem category.

1.Cups baggy, creased or bust not filling the cup

cups baggy

A bra cup fit without gaps or creases over the breast.Try a smaller cup size.

2.Shoulder straps digging in

The back band and cup should provide you with support therefore when your shoulder straps are digging in it is a sign that the bra is not fitting correctly.Try a smaller back band and a bigger cup size.

3.The back band is riding up

If your back band is too big this will ride up and it will not give you the correct amount of support. To confirm if the band is too big put your fingers under the band and pull it away from the body it should not stretch more than 5cm / 2 inches.Try a smaller back band size.

4.Back band too tight

5.Wires lifting away from the body

With a wire bra the wires should sit behind your breast not on the breast if they are sitting on the breast then Try a bigger cup size.
