A well fitting bra lifts, supports, and shapes. The correct fitting bra will make you look younger and thinner. A wrong fitting bra will make you look messy and older. If your bra is uncomfortable, you are wearing the wrong size.
Every brand and style will fit different even if they are the same style. A Maidenform demi cup is going to fit differently from a Wacoal demi cup. A Bali full coverage cup is going to fit differently from a Vanity Fair full coverage cup. When you find a brand and style that fits you perfectly, stick with it. When trying to figure out your bra size, first find your band size (the number), then go up or down with the cup size (the letter). The band should fit comfortably snug when hooked on the loosest row of hooks.
If you are now wearing a 38C, try a 36D. If the cup is too small, try a 36DD. If you are wearing a 42D, try a 40DD. If the cup is too small, try a 40DDD. If you are wearing a 34B, try a 32C. If the cup is to small, try a 32D.
Looking good and feeling good is empowering. Your dresses and tops will fit so much better when wearing the correct fitting bra. Get your copy of ……The Ultimate Bra Fitting Guide, before you go bra shopping and find out how to choose the correct fitting bra.
