      Bra Fit & Style Guide

      Finding the perfect bra can be hard, which is why it's really important to wear the correct bra size for you. Our handy guide is full of tips and tricks so you can say goodbye to badly fitting bras forever!

      How To Check Your Bra Size

      Are you wearing the right bra size? Follow our step by step guide to find out!

      Prep

      Put on your best fitting bra, stand in front of a big mirror!

      Let's start with the underband...

      1. Your underband should be nice and snug when fastened on the loosest hook. You shouldn't be able to pull it more than two inches away from your back.
      2. The underband should sit horizontally level across your body in line with the wires at the front.
      3. The length of your straps should be adjusted enough to support the cup but it should feel comfortable as well.
      4. Now let's move onto the cups...

      5. There should be no bulging or gaping at the top of the cups.
      6. The wire should completely enclose each breast, sit right in the crease and finish under your arms.
      7. The wire should sit flat against your rib cage from the middle of your bust and along the crease of your bust with no lifting away.

      How To Put Your Bra On

      Are you wearing your bra correctly? Put it to the test!

      Follow these four simple steps to see if you've passed or failed...

      1. Lean forwards

        This will allow your breasts to fall naturally into the bra cups and gives the best support.

      2. Lift wires

        As you straighten up, lift the wires up into the crease of your bust before fastening the bra.

      3. Lift in

        This will give you a good idea of how comfortable the bra is and how well it fits.

      4. Adjust straps

        Adjust your shoulder straps to ensure you get the right support.

      How To Care For Your Bra

      Make your bra last longer with our top tips to care for your bra properly.

      1. Tip 1

        Always try to hand wash your bras and never put them in the dryer - this will reduce elasticity and cause them to shrink.

      2. Tip 2

        Wash your bras in cool water with a delicate detergent. Don't wring them out, just let them drip dry, and don't put them on a radiator where the heat can damage them.

      3. Tip 3

        We suggest that you buy a new bra every six months - as the best support your bra gives you is within the first six months.
