The Ultimate Guide: How to Fit a Plus Size Bra Properly

The Ultimate Guide: How to Fit a Plus Size Bra Properly

Are you tired of dealing with uncomfortable bras that don’t fit properly? Fret not, we've got you covered! Finding the perfect plus size bra can be a game-changer, and getting the right fit is crucial for both comfort and support. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the steps to ensure you find the perfect plus size bra that fits like a dream.

Step 1: Get Fitted

The first step to finding the perfect plus size bra is getting professionally fitted. It isn't all about measuring to find the best bras for you. Did you know that most women are wearing the wrong bra size? Head to a lingerie store or use our online resources to get accurate measurements.

Step 2: Understand Your Size

Understanding bra sizing can be tricky, especially when it comes to plus sizes. Remember that cup sizes vary with band sizes – a 42D is not the same as a 38D. Take the time to understand how bra sizing works to make the right choices.

Step 3: Check the Fit

When trying on bras, pay attention to the fit. The band should sit firmly around your ribcage, and the cups should encase your breast tissue fully without any spillage. The underwire should sit flat against your ribcage, and the straps should not dig into your shoulders.

Step 4: Try Different Styles

Not all bras are created equal, and different styles work for different body shapes. Experiment with various styles like full-cup, plunge, or balconette to see what works best for you. Moreso, pay attention to what parts of the bra have stretch, no stretch, or are adjusted for certain body needs. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!

Step 5: Adjust Straps and Band

Once you find a bra that fits well, make minor adjustments to ensure the perfect fit. Start by adjusting the straps – they should be snug but not tight. The band should be fastened on the loosest set of hooks and sit parallel to the ground and provide most of the support.

Step 6: Take Care of Your Bras

Proper care extends the life of your bras. Hand wash them in cool water with a gentle lingerie specific detergent and lay them flat to dry. Avoid machine washing and drying, as this can damage the elasticity and shape of the bras.

By following these steps, you’ll be on your way to finding the perfect plus size bra that not only fits well but also makes you feel confident and comfortable. Remember, your bra should support you, not constrict you!
