SheFinds Solution: Bras That Fit

December 19, 2007 by SheFindsKim

Problem: Over 80% of women wear the wrong size bra, preventing a smooth line under clothing and potentially leading to sagging breasts. My old bra was comfortable but gave my chest an unnatural, compressed look.

Solution: At my first bra fitting at Bergdorf Goodman, I learned I'm a 32FF. I thought I was a 36D/DD! My fitters were wonderful, clearly passionate about their work and taught me so much, including:

*The middle of the bra (where the bow is in the accompanying photo) should be smack-dab against your breastbone, not an inch away! This anchors your bra to work as a tool to support, rather than just cover, the bust. Otherwise, you sag.

*The other end of the underwire (near the underarms) should lay BEHIND the breast on bone, not on flesh.

*When putting on your bra, you should bend over like you're touching your toes and let your breasts fall into the bra. Once you pull the straps up, scoop your breasts from back to front to fit into the cups. For a seamless look under t-shirts, I tried this Smoothing underwired balcony bra from Fantasie. I can't even imagine wearing anything else now! Find Fantasie and Goddess bras at figleaves.com.
