Upgrade your daily undergarments! Uncover bra hacks for perfect fit & comfort. Boost your style and embrace your shape with expert tips.
- Strap Savvy: Tighten the straps until there's no slack, allowing comfortable passage for two fingers. Remember, support doesn't come from the straps.
- Center Check: The center gore should lie flat against your chest, ensuring the cups encapsulate each breast fully without spillage or gaping when standing tall.
- Underwire Check: The underwire should fully encapsulate your breast, lying neither on top nor cutting short, ensuring it's neither too tall nor too short.
- Band Bliss: The band should be firm and sit parallel to the ground or lower depending on where you naturally curve in the back, offering optimal support without riding up.
- The Finger Slide: After fastening the bra, run your index finger along the band to ensure it sits comfortably without pinching. However, if you can pull it more than an inch and half away from your body it is probably too loose. Your bra band is 80% of where your support comes from.
- The Shimmy Test: Give your torso a gentle twist. Raise your arms overhead. If the bra stays in place, you've nailed the fit. Bend over a bit and give a shimmy. Is everything staying put? No quad-boob? That’s a great sign!
