Lingerie shopping is probably one of your must-do and difficult shopping. Choosing the right bra for your shape and size isn’t that easy. Breasts are the more snug we want the bra to be in the back so we can get the breasts up otherwise they look very low.
Bras are the foundation to a better shape, a better silhouette and to really enhance the clothes you wear. Whether it is an off-shoulder top, a mesh blouse or any outfit that makes you worry about your bra, here are some tips to overcome that problem!
1. Get Most Of Your Support From The Band
Your band should be level and parallel to the floor. It shouldn’t be hitching upon the side or in the shape of an arch or lifting up in the back. If it is, it means it’s not giving you the support you need (remember: most of the support in a bra comes from the band).” The thicker the band, the more support you’ll get, and the Playtex Perfectly Smooth wire-free bra have an extra-wide double-lined band that’s designed to sit where it should, so you get the most support around the torso without any poking or prodding.
2. Stretch the bra
The bra should fit right and the back should be an exact parallel on your back. If it starts rising upwards then it means it’s too loose. So make sure it fits you on the loosest setting first of all that way as the bras stretch and give over time you’ve got more leeway to tighten. And when it comes to the actual strap of the bra you need to be able to just pull it from your shoulder about two inches for it to be comfortable.
3. Choose the right cutting
Depending on the size of your breasts and the support you need, bras with underwire will help to give your breast more lift. If you want more volume, opt for a push-up bra with additional padding. But, if comfort is more of your thing, triangle bras are a great way to get minimal support without compromising on comfort. Go for a sports bra if you’re doing sports, which gives you ample support sans the wire.
4. If The Underwires Fit Wrong, You’ve Likely Got The Wrong Size or Style
The underwires should fully enclose the breast tissue. Because you probably don’t want the wire resting on top of the breasts or digging into the sides of the breast. If you notice the wires aren’t fully enclosing the breast, you’re likely not in your best-fitting size.
5. Don’t Default To A T-Shirt Bra If You’re Looking For Support
Even though people tend to default to t-shirt bras, they may not be the best option for people looking for a lot of support. The most supportive bras are seamed or cut-and-sewn bras. Because they’re often made from mesh or lace.
6. If Your Chest Is Smaller, Don’t Rule Out Petite Bra Sizes
If you’re smaller-busted, then go with the little bra company. The Little Bra Company is cut for a more petite frame and offers both small band and small cup sizes,” and with tighter bands, shallow cups, and a close-set build, this one offers the support and shape that petite women might not be able to get with bras made for larger cups
7. Experiment And Have Fun With It
Finally, a last bit of advice is that “Be okay with experimenting and try to have fun with it. Whether you’re experimenting with a bright color, wild print, different shape, or material, have fun with it. After all, Bras can be just as much an expression of your fashion sense and personal identity as what you are on the outside.
