• BAND SIZE:
The band should be as snug as possible while staying comfortable- more so than your lingerie bra. If the band rides up, it is either too loose or you need to adjust the straps. If the straps do not fix the issue, the band is too loose and chafing could be a problem.
• CUP SIZE:
Scoop your breasts into the cups, making sure they are centered. If the cup size fits you correctly, your breasts will be completely contained within the cups. If any of your breast tissue spills out the top or sides, then the cup size is too small and we recommend you go up a cup size. The fabric of the bra should be smooth. If there is any wrinkles or puckers, that may mean that the straps need to be adjusted or that the cup size is too large.
The underwire should sit on your rib cage below the breast tissue with the center panel resting comfortably flat against your breastbone. Any gaping in the center may indicate the need to go up a cup size.
The straps should not slide or dig into your shoulders. A bra with adjustable straps allow for a more custom fit. You should not feel like most of the support is coming from the straps. If you do, you may need a smaller band size.
