4 STEPS TO THE PERFECT FIT

Bra_Sizing

1. LIFT AND CENTRE

Your bra should centre your bust; from the front, your bust should be in line with your rib cage and lifted to half way between your elbow and shoulder.

3. UPLIFT

Your bra band should be positioned lower at the back than the front, so it sits better, tips the bust slightly and helps avoid back bulges. To test the fit, lift your arms above your head in front of a mirror. The bra should stay in place and not lift.

2. SUPPORT

The underwire should fit behind your breast and flat against your rib cage. The cup should enclose your breast without any bulging.

4. FIRM FIT

The bra band should offer some give, but should not be too loose, as this will reduce support. To check, put your thumb under the clasp and lift it away from your body. It should not lift away more than 1 inch.

HOW TO MEASURE

We recommend an in person bra fitting to achieve the most accurate result, however here are some top tips to measure at home.

And if your bust measurement is 97cm, you will need a C cup. This makes your bra size 36C.
