3 Ways You Can Make Sure Your Bra is the Right Fit For You (Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

How are the sisters? No, I’m not talking about Janice and Susan — I’m talking about the sisters God blessed you with! Let me ask you this

~Have you been having pain in your lower back or shoulder area?

~Are you noticing some sag up front in your chest area even when you have your bra  on?

~Has someone commented about the waves in your shirt in the bra region?

Then it may be time for you to get a new bra. But how do you know if you are getting the right bra for you?

1. Get a professional fitting

I never thought this was important until I worked in a department store. I always just assumed that I knew the bra size I was supposed to wear, but upon having a professional fitting, I found out that I was wrong by two sizes about the bra I should be wearing. Professional fittings are FREE and most clothing department stores offer them.

2. Each brand is different

Don’t just assume that every 36C bra is going to be the same size. As my daughter recently found out, every bra company differs just a bit in the size, so be sure to try on whatever you are buying. Don’t just assume it’s going to fit just right. One of my favorite brands is Vanity Fair. Their new Look Lifted Modern Coverage Bra has quickly become my favorite. It fits right, feels comfortable, and basically goes with every single piece of clothing I wear!

3. Change Is Important

Do not be like me and wear the same bra for five years! Bra straps and cups wear out, so purchase a new bra about every six months so you can give your old, tired bra a break! Yes — it may be comfortable, but it is not good for the sistas! They want to be uplifted and held at a higher standard, so that means you’re gonna have to retire the old brazier and get a new one. Again, the Vanity Fair one is a great bra with lots of comfort.
