Basic Everyday Bras
Comfort is the first priority when selecting a bra you plan to wear everyday. Soft fabrics, smooth elastics and a snug feel around your body is essential for the best fit and shaping. Straps should fit comfortably on your shoulders and not dig in. If you seem to be "spilling out" on the sides or front of the cup, try the next cup size.
Special Occasion Bras
While comfort is still essential, special occasion bras will come in a variety of styles and will have a sexier fit such as deeper cleavage, push up or mega push up cup. These styles will also have more embellishments like lace, ruffles, bows & bling.
Total Bra Care
Always follow manufacturers care instructions to obtain optimal wear from your bras. This usually means hand washing with mild detergents and hanging up to drip dry. Periodically check to ensure that the fabric and elastics are performing acceptably. When the support is not the same and the bra feels too loose, then it's time to go shopping again.
HOW TO FIND YOUR BRA SIZE
Your first measurement is around the diaphragm. Using a tape measure, take a firm measurement around the rib cage, directly underneath the breast. Make sure the tape measure doesn’t slip down your back, hold it very firm and tight.
Bust (At fullest)
Next, take the measurement around the fullest part of your bust. Make sure the tape is comfortably around the bust. Measure loosely, but make sure the tape does not slip down your back.
