Is Bra Fitting That Important?

Definitely! Having a bra that fits just right is all about comfort and feeling good... but getting a good fit depends on quite a few things. Not least that there are so many variations among different bra styles, fits and brands to consider. For instance, a full coverage bra will fit differently than a demi-cup style or a balcony bra might not be quite right for under your favourite t-shirt.

When it comes to your bra any slight variation here or there (even if it’s the smallest amount) may mean the difference between a bra that feels comfortable and one that feels too tight or gives poor support.

Find your perfect fit!

Finding the perfect fittting bra is a must for comfort and support. To help you find the right fit we've put together some notes on how to measure yourself from the comfort of your own home with advice from our in-store team of expert fitters.

How to find your bra size.

Find your BAND size.– Use a tape measure around your chest and just under your arms above your breast. If your measurement is an odd number, round up or down to the nearest size. This is your band size.

Find your BUST size.– Measure around the fullest part of your bust. This is your bust size.

Find your CUP size.– Subtract the band from the bust then check our graphic for your cup size.

How your bra should fit.

1. The centre of the bra should site flat against the chest.

2. The wire should sit flat on your ribcage.

3. Cups should fit with no bulging or gaping.

4. The wire should surround the breast and not sit on it.

5. The band should sit across your back in-line with the wires in front.

6. The straps should be adjusted to give support but not be too tight.

7. The band should be nice and snug. If you can fit more than 2 fingers underneath it, it’s too loose.
