Bra Styles and Size Guide

Wearing the right underwear for your body shape is essential. For the best results choose well fitting undergarments that will complement your figure and enhance and reduce the figure where needed to balance your body shape out.

Wearing a bra which is the correct size and style for your body shape will give a great foundation for the clothes you wear and can also have a big effect on how good you look and feel once dressed and will give you that great foundation.

The best way to start will be to find out your body shape, the apple and hourglass figures tend to have a fuller bust and the pear and boyish shape are usually smaller busted. If you don’t know your body shape you could be getting it all wrong with both clothes and underwear you are wearing.

There are many guides on the internet that work out your bra size, unfortunately these will give different size results and when you buy a bra the brands also come in different sizes. We think the best sizing guide is what will fit you comfortably in both the bra band and the bra cup.

The Bra Band

The bra band, should fit with support, if it moves about too much, leaves red marks, rides up at the back or the shoulder straps dig in then you have the wrong band fit.

New bras should be comfortably worn on the second or third hook, this will then give enough room for adjustment as bra ages and stretches with age.

The Bra Cup

The bra cup should support the breast without being too tight, if the cup results in the breast spilling out then opt to try on a larger cup size.

  1. I used to wear a wrongly fit bra, it really gives discomfort. Sometimes I even get rashes, maybe because of wearing too tight because they’re too big. You should really know the size because this matters so much when you’re about to wear bras your whole life.
