A perfectly fitting bra can make all the difference in your day. It can improve your posture and overall image for better.
Finding a good bra is like hitting a jackpot. Once you have it, you find yourself wearing the same old worn, faded and stretched-out number for years. Why? – Because it fits well!
Here are 5 important tips to remember when shopping for a perfect bra:
Get yourself fitted by a specialist.
And get refitted if you experience a change in your weight. Chances are you’ve been wearing the wrong-size bra for years.
Pay attention to the quality and width of trims, band and shoulder straps.
If your cup size is B or fuller, you’ll want supportive bands and straps that aren’t too thin. Make sure they aren’t leaving marks on your skin, riding up or sliding down. We use soft, high quality elastic trim in various width on most of our organic bras and bralettes. It won’t slide, it does not pinch and has enough stretch to give the proper support in all the right places.
3. When you are looking for a lot of lift and cleavage beyond what your girls naturally have, a push-up bra is the standard option.
However, pay attention to the gaping in traditional molded cup or padded bras. There should be no empty space between the upper part of breast and the bra. In other words, your breast should fill the cup evenly. Push-up bras, when not fitted correctly can leave you with neck pain and back pain.
4. The materials in your bra should be soft and adaptable.
After all, if you spend your day feeling itchy because your fabulous-looking bra is made with rigid ribbon straps or stiff lace trims that’s not good. Opt when you can for natural breathable materials, such as organic cotton, bamboo or merino wool. Like these organic cotton and superfine merino wool or cashmere bralettes and bras by Econica.
5. Sometimes less is more.
Ask yourself what is more important: the comfort or the look? How often are you planning on wearing your new bra? For everyday use, look for simpler style made with quality fabric and stitching. Smaller cup sizes are perfect for triangle or any soft bras without a wire, since they need less support—although if you want a bit more help, a lightly padded plunge or demi bra works well too. Larger cup sizes can wear many different styles if they are constructed properly. The key is not to limit yourself and try things on!
