Does it fit? How can I tell?

Start with your usual bra size.


The band around the chest should be level front and back. If the band rides up at the back, try a smaller back size.

You should be able to fit two fingers underneath the band, any more than that and the band is too big and could cause friction during movement.

The under-band should feel firm but comfortable to avoid discomfort.

The cup of the bra should contain the whole breast.

If the fabric on the cups wrinkles, this suggests the cup size is too large, try a smaller cup size.

There should be no cleavage on show, if there is, the cup is too small.

Straps front

The straps should not dig in.

They should have a maximum of a couple of inches give to avoid chafing. Adjust straps accordingly.

Straps back

Finally, if all feels comfy, do the bounce test to double check. Jump up and down – you should feel secure in the bra and the movement of your bust should be dramatically minimised.

Don’t be afraid to try a few different sizes and styles to find what is perfect for you.
