comfortable bra

Let’s start with a simple question – how comfortable is your bra? Is it digging into your skin? Is it giving you the support you need? Do you feel restricted by it? These are questions that you may never have asked yourself before now. But perhaps you should. You likely spend the majority of the day in a bra so you need to be comfortable.

If you’re looking for the right bra, here are some tips to help you out:

1.  Find the right bra size for you

First things first, you absolutely need to know what your bra size is. If you haven’t been fitted for quite some time, it’s worth booking yourself an appointment. A huge majority of women actually wearing the wrong bra size on a day to day basis. You might not even realize that you’re wearing one that is too small or too big for you. What’s more, your breast size can change over time. That means that you need to regularly check up on your bra size to make sure that it hasn’t changed.

2.  Check out your sister size

Can’t find a bra in the exact right size for you? There is something you can do. One of the things that many people overlook when looking for a bra is their sister size. This size is one that you can wear even though it’s not exactly right for you. It’s pretty easy to work out, but there are also charts and grids that can help you along the way. When you figure out what your sister size is, you need to remember it. The next time you’re looking for a comfortable bra that fits you well, give it a go.

3.  Look for a fabric that suits you

Every woman out there is different. The fabric or material that suits you will often come down to what type of skin you have. Those of you with super sensitive skin may find that some materials are too harsh to handle. While, on the other hand, some women find that pretty much any material out there is comfortable for them. It’s well worth taking the time to figure out what’s right for you and your skin type. Of course, as always, investing in a high-quality piece of lingerie is a smart move as you get what you pay for.

4.  Get a thick band for extra support

Should you have larger breasts, you need to make sure that you get as much support as possible. One of the ways in which you can be certain that a piece of lingerie will give you the support you need is to get a thick band. Most people think that support is all about getting the right straps for the job. That’s not the case. Believe it or not, much of the support that you get from a bra comes from the band. Keep that in mind.

5.  Consider your personal shape

Women come in all shapes and sizes – that’s what makes us all so unique. With that in mind, it’s unlikely that every single bra style out there is going to work for each of us. When it comes to choosing a bra that you’re going to wear on a regular basis, you need to make sure that you get one which suits your personal shape. The easiest way to figure out what’s right for you is to make sure that you try a whole load of styles out. Be adventurous and see which styles happen to suit you. You might find that there are a few surprises in store for you when you first start experimenting.

6.  Put your bra on correctly

Do you put your bra on correctly? While your gut reaction may be a resounding yes, all too many women actually get this aspect of their lingerie care wrong. If you tend to do your bra up and stick it over your head, you’re making a mistake. Equally, if you fasten your bra at the front and then move it around so that the clasp is at the back, you’re not getting it right either. The truth of the matter is that when you put your bra on incorrectly, you could be damaging the material and stretching it. Get it right and you won’t have this issue.

Remember

Now that you understand how to find the most comfortable bra for you, what on earth are you waiting for? You deserve to feel and look your best each and every day. That’s a baseline requirement. If you’re not getting what you need from your lingerie, it’s time to shake things up and try something new. Putting the time and energy into this aspect of your fashion now could make all the difference in the long term. Don’t forget it.
