    At Home Fit Guide

    • Check to make sure the band is snug– you should be able to fit only one finger under your band.
    • Look at your profile in the mirror and make sure that your bra band is straight and low across the back.
    • The band is too large if it’s riding up your back and too small if it’s digging in to the point of discomfort. This is the most important “point of fit” in a bra since 70% of the support comes from the band!
    • Lean forward, bending slightly at the waist to allow the breasts to fully fall into the cup.
    • With your opposite hand, reach into the cup of the bra, pulling all breast tissue from the side to the center while holding the wire in place under the arm with your spare hand. Repeat on the other side.
    • Adjust your straps so that they are snug and have some tension, but you can run a finger under them comfortably. Most women have slightly different size breasts so it's fine to adjust the straps to different lengths.
    • If you have sloping shoulders and your straps keep falling off, you should focus on bras with more centered straps.
    • If you have average to broad shoulders and your straps keep falling off, then your band is probably too big.
    • The bra has an underwire, make sure that the wires are fully encompassing your breasts at the side and are not cutting into your breast tissue. Then make sure your breasts are not bulging out at the top of the cup.
    • If either happens, it means your cup is too small and you should go up at least one cup size.
    • If you experience any gapping at the top of the cup, you probably need to try another style or go down at least a cup size.
    • The center front should be lying flat between your breasts.
    • If there is any space between the center front and your skin, then your cup is too small and you should go up at least one cup size.
    • When lifting up your arms, your bra shouldn’t move. If the cup lifts up to the point of any breast tissue being exposed, then it is too small.
    • Try some light movement, if your breasts don’t stay contained in the cup and need readjustment, the band is probably too big and the cup too small.
    • Stand in front of a mirror and look at your profile. Your breasts should be lifted and supported ensuring you stand straight and confident.
