Most women — an alarming 85% — are wearing the wrong size bra, according to Susan Nethero, bra fit specialist and founder of Intimacy Boutiques.
If you purchase all your bras based on measurements alone and think you’re always buying the right size, I’m sure many are close. But,
I’ll bet you have at least a few bras in your lingerie drawer that could fit better. Maybe some are a little uncomfortable, or not as supportive as they could be.
Why Should You Care?
When your bra fits properly, you will instantly look better in all your clothes.
When a bra isn’t fit for your body type, you may suffer from backaches and premature sagging. You may even look like you’ve put on a few pounds.
Isn’t it as simple as knowing your size?
No! Size aint’ nuthin’ but a number.
Knowing your size is just a starting point to find a bra that fits well. Most of the women stick to always buy the same size but end up there are too many bras that aren’t right for them.
Actually, many of your bras should be different sizes, because the fit is so much more important than the number on the tag, and varies among different brands and styles.
