Bra Fit Check

A Correctly Fitting Bra Has The Following...
  • When viewed from the side, the under-band should be horizontal, should not ride up the back and should be firm but comfortable
  • The underwires at the front should lie flat against the sternum (not the breast) along the infra-mammary fold and should not dig in to the chest or the breasts, rub or poke out at the front
  • The breasts should be enclosed by the cups and there should be a smooth line where the fabric at the top of the cup ends
  • There should not be a ridge or any bulging over the top or sides of the cups, even with a low-cut style such as the balconette bra

Fit Check
  • Bra fits smoothly
  • Cups completely include breasts, except of pushups and demi bras
  • No spillage or digging
  • No gaps and puckering
  • Bra is snugged, but not too tight around the body
  • Band does not ride up on the back
  • The center of the bra lies flat against the breastbone
  • Straps are adjusted with no pressure or cutting
  • Bra feels very comfortable, no matter if you stand, sit, bend or jump

If it feels uncomfortable when you try the bra on, remember it won't change afterwards.

It takes time and patience to find a right bra.

The same bra may one fit perfectly and be completely inappropriate for someone else.

Do not be attracted by the style, price, brand, or just recommendations of others.

If it hurts to wear, don't buy it!
