where to get a bra fitting

Bras should be your best friends. They support you, lift you up, and splurging on a gorgeous bra (or two) can make you feel like a million bucks. But if you’re wearing the wrong size, bra shopping can be a nightmare. The cups are too big or too small. The waistband hikes up or is too tight. The straps don’t stay up or leave indents on your skin. You need help. And the best way to get it? Visit a professional that knows how to fit you for a bra.

What is a bra fitting?

A bra fitting is when a professional working for a retail establishment takes your measurements. They measure across and under your breasts to calculate band and cup size, respectively. You can keep your bra or t-shirt on if you’re uncomfortable stripping down, but these experts are usually good at making you feel comfortable and at ease.

How will it help me?

Not only can you now shop with relative ease, knowing what size you should be aiming for based on your measurements (and not guesswork), but a professional fitter is knowledgeable and can help you find styles that will compliment your shape and size, give you support, and fit your breasts – no more gaping or spilling over!

When is a good time to get fitted?

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort when wearing your bra, it’s a good time to get fitted for a new one. Other signs you should get a new bra include: cups gaping, you’re spilling out of the cups, the band is riding up or digging in, the straps are falling down or making indents in your shoulders, the underwire is painful, the elasticity is starting to go, or wires are popping out (ouch). It is also a good idea if your weight has fluctuated, you’ve become pregnant, or recently had a child, because these will cause size changes and definitely necessitate a new bra.

Once you find a brand, style, and size that fit, you’ll be amazed at how much more comfortable you’ll be in your bras. It is still a good idea to try on bras even if they are in your size, as different styles and brands can really change the comfort level of a bra. Also, the level of padding is something to take into account too. But once you’ve been fitted for a bra, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to find out your perfect size.
