Selecting a bra that is perfectly adapted to your body shape is not an easy task. Follow our golden rules when trying on your bra and become an expert in the subject. You’ll never make a bad choice again.
Place each of your breasts inside of the bra cups using your opposite hand, slightly pushing them towards the center. They should not spill over the sides. Lean forward to find the ideal position of your breasts in the bra and obtain more glamorous cleavage.
The top of the cups must not flatten or compress your breasts. The bra should follow the curve of your breasts.
The lower part of your bra, i.e. the underwire and/or its center gore (piece that holds the cups together), must remain flat against your bust without feeling too tight.
The underwire must completely envelop the curves underneath your breasts. Their ends must not float or cut into your skin, which may cause discomfort.
The straps must be perfectly adjusted and straight. They must not be stretched, as this may cause them to slip. They must not be too tight either, as they might cut into your shoulders.
The back of the bra is a very important part for proper bust support. It must be positioned straight across, i.e. parallel to the ground and well beneath your shoulder blades.
The back hooks must be attached in the middle, so as to adjust to variations in size and/or the stretching of the bra. When closed, the back must not feel too tight, as this may compress the bust and create unwanted folds of skin, or too loose, as this prevents the bra from offering enough support.
The bra must remain perfectly in place. Don’t hesitate to move around, lean forward and lift your arms to make sure that it won’t budge.
