bra fitting problems

Have you ever had a bra fitting? If not, you’re missing out. Bra fittings are an essential part of bra shopping – you wouldn’t buy a pair of jeans without trying them on first, would you? Just like jeans, bras are another garment that you absolutely have to try on before you buy.

Bra shopping isn’t easy – if it was easy, no one would complain about their bras, right? This is where bra fitters come in. Bra fitters are fit and product experts in the lingerie industry. They’re trained to measure for your bra size, determine which bra styles will work best for you, and introduce to new bras that you would have never tried yourself. Chances are good that you’re not the first person to come to them with a bra fit problem. Bra fitters help thousands of women every day find the solution to their bra fit problems.

Here are some common bra fitting problems bra fitters can help with:

1.  Your breast tissue spills out of your bra

Does your breast tissue spill over the top or sides of your cups? What about the bottom of the bra – does your breast tissue try to escape from the bottom too? Chances are your bra is too small. A bra fitter knows how to fix this.

2.  Your bra straps slip off your shoulders

Ever wonder why your bra straps slide off your shoulders? Don’t worry – it’s a common problem with an easy fix.

3.  Your bra band rides up your back

Do you notice your bra band move up your back throughout the day? It’s likely you need a smaller band size. A bra fitter can re-measure your bra size and suggest better bras.

4.  The bra’s underwire digs into your skin

If your bra’s underwire digs into your skin and causes pain and discomfort, one of two things could be happening: your bra band is too tight or your bra cups are too small. A profession bra fitting can help with this.

5.  Your bra cups gap

Do you have empty space in your bra cups? Try the scoop and swoop first: holding the left cup with your left hand, reach into the bra cup with your right hand and pull your breast tissue toward the center. Repeat on the other side. This should redistribute and center your breast tissue for a fuller fit.

If this doesn’t fix the gaping cups, a bra fitter can re-fit you and make sure you’re wearing the right bra size.

6.  Your bra band is uncomfortable

If you find yourself pulling and tugging at your bra band all day long, it’s time to try a different style. Sometimes the bra size is correct but the style is not the best for your breast shape. A bra fitter can make recommendations and bring you bras that you’ll actually want to wear.

7.  You can’t find a supportive strapless bra

Strapless bras are among most challenging bras to shop for. There is a lot to consider when shopping for a supportive strapless bra – especially if you wear a larger bra size. A bra fitter can help you out.

8.  You’re convinced you’ll never find a bralette in your size

Love them or hate them, bralettes are here to stay. We love the ease and comfort that a bralette provides, but they are tricky to shop for. If you’re still searching for the bralette of your dreams, head to a local lingerie store and let an expert hand pick bralettes for you to try.
