Shopping for bras is a whole to-do. You simply cannot just pick one off the rack, assume it fits and be on your way to the cash wrap. This is a serious no, no. Bra shopping is hard enough in person, let alone shopping for a bra online. You can’t touch the bra or try it on, so how do you know it’ll fit properly? If you’re bra shopping online, here’s the one thing you should never do.
The most important thing when it comes to bras is the way it fits on your body. It should be supportive and comfortable. When you’re shopping online, it’s impossible to try on the bra you’re interested in. Sure, you can see the way it looks in the different images or how it fits the model but you aren’t the model. On that note, you should never order just one size. Order (at least) two sizes of the bra you want so you can see which fits and feels better.
I recommend shopping on a site that has free shipping and free returns (like Zappos) so you don’t get stuck paying for a return fee. After trying on the different sizes you ordered, pack up the size that doesn’t fit and send it back to the retailer. If you order just one size and it doesn’t fit, you’ll create more of a hassle for yourself. Why? You’ll have to return that item and exchange it for another…and possibly another if that one doesn’t fit either.
Do yourself a favor and order multiple sizes when shopping for a bra online. It won’t cost you any extra money if you order from a site that offers free returns!
