If your cup (the letter) is wrinkling, it is too big.
If your breast are spilling out of the top and sides of your cup (the letter), your cup is too small, or you need to try on a different style.
If one of your breast are noticeably larger than the other, make sure the bra cup is large enough to fit the largest breast.
If your straps are always slipping off your shoulders, your band (the number) is too big or you need to try a different style.
If your straps dig into your shoulders, your band (the number) is too big.
If your bra straps ride up your back and you are always pulling it down, your band is too big.
What does that mean? How do I understand the “bra language”?
Here are a few definitions of some commonly used words.
1. Average Coverage — allows some of the breast to be uncovered or exposed.
2. Contour Cup — are cups that are lightly padded for shaping and nipple concealment.
3. Padded Cup — is when the padding is thick enough to increase the appearance of your breast size.
4. Demi Cup — covers the lower half of the breast while the top portion is exposed or uncovered.
5. Minimizer — is a bra that flattens (redistributes) the breast to reduce the front projection.
6. Strapless Bra — is a bra without straps.
7. T-Shirt Bra — is usually a contour bra that shapes and and prevents your nipples from showing through.
So you have finally decided to go and get a professional bra fitting, but you are nervous. Hopefully, you read this blog post before you go. I’m going to give you a few tips before you go so you can know the difference between a good fitter and a bad fitter.
1. A good fitter will make you feel comfortable, at ease, and is a good listener. A good fitter will make your fitting experience fun and very informative.
2. A good fitter will not pressure you into buying anything. A good fitter will measure you, educate you, answer all of your questions and allow you to decide how many bra you want to purchase at this time.
3. A good fitter will be your personal bra shopper and will bring you many styles and brands to try on.
4. A good fitter should encourage you and not make you feel bad about your body or size.

Bras do not last forever. Washing and wearing will cause the elastic in the band to wear out. (Remember, your band supplies most of your breast support). How fast your bras wear out depends on how many bras you have in your rotation, and your bust size (the larger your breast, the more work and support your band has to supply on a daily basis). I recommend that you replace your bras every 6-9 months.
1. The best way to wash your bras is hand wash. Fill your sink with warm water and a lingerie wash/soap. Soak your bras for 30 minutes – 1 hour. Rinse bras well, pat dry with a towel ( do not wring), and hang to dry (do not place in a dryer).
2. Only wash in a machine if you use a lingerie bag, lingerie wash, cold water, on the delicate cycle. Hang to dry and never use the dryer.
3. Molded cup bras should be stacked on top of each other in a drawer. Do not fold the cups into each other. This will destroy the shape and the fibers that make up the molding. When traveling, use a bra travel case to protect the cups.
