A bra that doesn't fit properly is not only uncomfortable, it spoils the line of clothing, so it's really important to measure your bust size each time you buy a new bra.
Remember too, that the underband of your bra provides 80% of the support, and it softens with washing and wear. Whilst your bra may feel comfortable, it may no longer be offering the optimum level of support, so an old bra may not be your bust's best friend.
How to spot a wrong fit:
- The straps slip off your shoulders
- The back rides up
- The wings gape
- The cups wrinkle
- You experience uncomfortable chafing
- The bra has unsightly bumps and ridges
SPECIALIST BRAS AND UNDERWEAR
We offer a wide selection of junior bras and recommend a soft bra for the early teenage years to protect delicate breast tissue as it grows.
During pregnancy, as your breasts and ribcage grow larger you'll need extra support. We have a large range of bras for mothers-to-be, including sleeping bras for night-time support. We'd advise a first fitting as early as possible in your pregnancy.
We can advise on which size and style will give you maximum comfort and support while breastfeeding. Come and see us 2-3 weeks before your baby is due to choose a nursing bra.
After breast surgery
If you've recently had breast surgery, it's even more important to find a bra that fits properly. If you've had a mastectomy and are wearing a prosthesis, the right bra will help you feel more comfortable and confident.
Our skilled experts understand the needs of women who have undergone breast surgery and can provide valuable and sympathetic assistance. We stock many styles that have been found to work well with a prosthesis. We also offer a post-mastectomy swimwear fitting service, and an underwired strapless bra to wear with an evening dress.
We offer a wide range of shapewear to help you streamline your silhouette and improve the look and fit of shape-hugging clothing. Our expert fitters will be delighted to help you find the solution that's right for you.
Whatever your exercise preferences, whether gentle yoga or high-impact aerobics, you'll need a different kind of bra from your normal one to support and protect delicate breast tissue. We'll be happy to advise on what's best for your size and level of activity.
