Does your bra fit?

We have all heard that over 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. But how do you know if your bra fits? Don’t worry, finding out is easy with these three simple exercises you can do right now!

1) Look down to the middle of your breasts. The centre of your bra should be anchored, meaning it sits flat against your chest, instead of pulling away from you or digging into your breast tissue.

2) The underwire should contain your breast fully. Take one hand and reach across to the outside of the opposite breast. Push against the underwire. If it digs into your breast instead of your ribcage, you are not getting the support you need!

3) If your straps dig into your shoulders and leave painful red marks, that is a clear indication that you are in the wrong bra size. No matter how large your breasts are, it is the band, not the straps, that should be taking the weight and giving you support. This is a big one, since putting that much strain on your shoulders can lead to back problems.

Of course the best way to make sure you are wearing right bra size is to get a proper fitting. At Brio our professional fitters will be happy to help you figure out your bra size. It’s free, so come in soon and discover how much better you will feel and look in the right sized bra.
