How to find your perfect fit
Finding the perfect outfit for any occasion can instantly lift spirits,
but there's one main concern so many of us struggle with: How to measure
bra size and choosing the right bra to wear underneath. Get it right
and you can instantly look slimmer and more streamlined, get it wrong
and a day of fidgety anxiety ensues as we worry whether it's visible,
ill fitting, or doing an injustice to our shape.
research from Triumph showing that 76% of people are wearing the wrong
sized bra, it's vital to make sure yours fits perfectly - not just for
support for your bust, but for all-round health. Constant headaches, a
stiff neck and upper back pain could all be caused by bras that are too
tight, too loose or the wrong shape for you. Get it right today, and you
could be surprised at just how much better you'll feel.
as a bra fitter for five years so it?s safe to say I know a thing or
two about how to measure bra size. During that time I fitted women of
all different size and learnt that for every shape, there is a bra. No
matter how much you may have struggled to find the right bra size -
there is a perfect bra for you out there. It may be that you suit a
balcony or a plunge shape, or that you need padded rather than
non-padded. But no matter what suits you, if you know the right way to
check you?re wearing the right bra size, every woman can create a
smoother, slimmer silhouette simply by investing in the right bra and
taking time to find out how to measure bra size and finding the right
bra. You'll instantly smooth over any lumps and bumps that appear from
ill-fitting underwear, but most importantly, your posture will improve
impeccably, making you appear taller and slimmer.
No two women
are the same, and that your bra size is never set in stone. A
measurement and a professional fitting are two very different things.
One of the most common misconceptions I came across was that it's fine
to get measured, buy a bra in that size and leave the shop as quickly as
possible. Realistically, the only way to ensure that your bra is giving
you the correct support is by putting some time aside to spend for a
fitting with a professional whose trained eye will know exactly what
style suits you best.
Taking your top off in front of a complete
stranger may seem like a daunting process, but let me assure you: there
is absolutely no reason for it to be scary. Lingerie retailers and
department stores across the country have fabulous trained bra fitters
who will spend time understanding your needs and making you feel
comfortable. Put your trust in them, and I promise the result will be a
fabulous silhouette that you'll be happy to show off.
