Bra Basics: Everything you've ever wanted to know about bras but didn't know who to ask!
Why is a properly fitted bra so important? The breast is not a muscle, it is delicate glandular tissue. Whether large or small, it needs to be properly supported, especially as we age. A proper fitting bra can help reduce back pain and headaches for the large-breasted woman and can improve posture, overall appearance and enhance self-esteem for all women. The right undergarment plays an important part in how your clothes fit and look on your body.
What is the proper positioning of the breasts?
The proper position is mid-way between the shoulder and elbow.
How do I find the right bra?
Start by seeking the advice of an expert who will first take the correct measurements, then address individual figure concerns, lifestyle needs and personal style to recommend a selection of bras to try on.
What can the right bra really do?
Smooth and shape breasts, giving a sleeker line which enhances clothing
Support breasts comfortably, improving posture and easing discomfort from headache and back pain
Make breasts appear smaller, giving the body a leaner and taller appearance
Lift and support breasts, giving a more youthful appearance
Make breasts appear larger and fuller, adding shapely curves
It's time for a bra fitting when...
You can't wait to take your bra off at night!
The wires hurt - the band is too small or the bra sits too low on the ribcage
The wires poke on the side - a larger band or cup size is needed
The middle front rides up away from the body - cups are too small
The shoulders hurt - more support is needed (smaller band and larger cups) - needs a style with wider or padded straps
Straps fall off the shoulders - they need to be tightened - they have lost elasticity - shoulders may be sloped, requiring a bra with straps that are closer together at the back
The band rides up - it's either too big or has lost elasticity
