A well fitting bra not only enhances your look, it ensures that you are adequately supported and comfortable. A properly fitting bra can improve your posture as well as your health, supporting delicate breast tissue and making you feel confident whatever you’re wearing. At Olivia’s Lingerie we offer a bra fitting service at your request.
A properly fitting bra should:
Offer lift and support
Feel comfortable all day
Provide a great silhouette under clothes
Guidelines for successful bra fitting:
Make sure that the band of the bra offers you the support you need. The band should do the work, not the straps. Ensure the band does not ride up at the back, this could indicate that the band is too large.
Check that the cup of the bra is big enough, that delicate breast tissue is fully positioned within the cup and that there is no overspill. Alternatively, make sure there is no creasing of the cup fabric, this could indicate that the cup is too big.
Are the straps comfortable? They shouldn’t dig in or fall down.
Think about which types of bra might offer the best support for you. Full cup bras offer great support for bigger cup sizes. Padded bras offer support and can enhance shape. It’s worth trying on different styles to see which you prefer.
Our trained and experienced fitters will help you to find the bra which is right for you.
