Are You Wearing The Correct Bra Size?


Are you wearing the correct bra size?

When was the last time you were fitted properly for a bra? If the answer is more than 12 months ago you need a fitting!

We at Browns Lingerie are proud to say that everyday we change ladies lives when we correctly fit them for a bra. Our team are fully trained in fitting and will assess your size correctly.

Here are a few main reasons you need to check your bra size –

  • Does your bra band ride up in the back? If it does, you need a smaller size band (that’s the number in a bra size e.g 30, 32, 34. The letter represents the cup size). The band must sit firm and level to fully support you, and should not be riding up the back.
  • Do your breasts spill over the top of your cups? This means your cup size is too small. The cup is squashing you into the bra and is forcing the breast tissue out, some call it the 4 boob look! Going up a cup size will solve this problem.
  • Does your bra cup stand away from your breasts? Then your cup is too large, you are not filling the cup so by wearing a smaller cup size will stop any gaping.
  • Do your bra straps dig into your shoulders? Your band is too loose. The main support of the bra should come from the back band, not the straps. So by wearing a tighter band will stop it riding up the back and have less strain on the shoulders. Also some bras have particularly long straps so this may force you to wear them higher up – a simple solution is to get those straps altered so you have less strain on your shoulders.
  • Are your breasts uneven? Everyone has one cup larger than the other, the trick is to always fit to the larger cup. If there is a large difference you can add padding to the smaller cup making the breasts even.
