Plus size bras are an essential garment for many women, but unfortunately, they can often be difficult to find and fit properly. In this blog post, we will discuss the importance of finding the right plus size bra, how to measure for a plus size bra, and some tips for finding the perfect fit.
First and foremost, it is important to find a bra that fits properly because it can have a significant impact on your overall comfort and confidence. When a bra fits properly, it can provide the necessary support and lift that many women need, which can improve their posture and overall appearance. Additionally, a properly fitting bra can help alleviate back and shoulder pain that can be caused by wearing a bra that is too tight or too loose.
So how do you find a plus size bra that fits properly? We firstly recommend visiting your nearest Underwear shop. The staff are qualified to fit you for your perfect bra, and can offer any advice you might need. Most independent Underwear shops carry a wide range of styles and sizes and will have time to fit you properly, unlike the busier multinationals.
If visiting your nearest Lingerie shop does not suit you then the first step is to measure yourself for your bra size. To do this, you will need a soft measuring tape and a mirror. First, measure the circumference of your chest, just under your bust. Make sure to keep the tape measure level and parallel to the ground. Next, measure the circumference of your bust at the fullest point. Record these measurements and use them to determine your bra size using a bra size chart.
Once you know your bra size, it is time to start trying on bras to find the perfect fit. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when shopping for a plus size bra:
Look for bras with adjustable straps. This will allow you to customize the fit and ensure that the bra is comfortable and supportive.
Pay attention to the band. The band of the bra should be snug but not too tight. It should stay in place and not ride up when you move around.
Consider the cup size. The cups of the bra should completely enclose your breasts and not spill over or gap.
Try on multiple styles. Different styles of bras, such as full coverage, balconette, or plunge, can offer different levels of support and lift. It is a good idea to try on a few different styles to see which one works best for you.
Don’t be afraid to try on multiple sizes. It is not uncommon to wear different sizes in different brands or styles of bras. Don’t be afraid to try on multiple sizes to find the perfect fit.
Finding the right plus size bra can be a bit of a challenge, but it is worth the effort. A properly fitting bra can make a big difference in your overall comfort and confidence. So take the time to measure for your bra size, try on multiple styles and sizes, and don’t be afraid to ask for help from a salesperson if you need it. With a little bit of effort, you can find the perfect plus size bra that fits and feels great.
