When trying to determine your correct bra size, which bra styles
are the best to try on?
Well, I asked this question of many of our manufacturers. What I
learned is that certain bras are better than others for determining
your accurate size. All the bras listed below share the attributes
of full coverage and no padding. It's also no surprise that all
these bra styles receive accolades in our Customer Reviews.
This full cup bra has a three- section cup for good shape and excellent
support. Full coverage bra has luxurious textronic lace in the top
cup to give a lighter look to the garment and provide maximum comfort.
Natori bra fitters say this is a good bra for determining bra size and gives a great fit to most.
A word about in-store bra fitters:
Many retail stores now offer "bra fitting" services. As well-meaning as many of these women are, you should
be the ultimate arbiter in determining your proper size. The truth is that women claiming to be "Bra Fitters"
may not always be providing you thorough fitting information.
Most retail lingerie stores do not stock all styles in all sizes. A Bra Fitter who works for a lingerie store has the primary
goal of selling you merchandise. If she doesn't have your size or the best brand for your figure, she may encourage you to consider
something simply because she has it in stock. The goal of a Bra Fitter is to make the sale - even if it's not necessarily the best choice for you.
Our HerRoom customer service staff has heard many women complain that they were talked into another size simply because the store
did not stock the size they really needed.
There are also different opinions about how a bra should fit. Many fitters suggest band sizes that are too small or a different size from what would be a proper fit.
You look great in the dressing room, but after a day of wear, you never want to see that bra again. The solution is to know how a proper bra should fit and feel. Then,
you won't find yourself the not-so-proud-owner of an ill-fitting bra.
