Everyone is different. That’s a fact. Including women’s breasts. However, one thing is for certain, gravity exists and it has an impact on our boobs at some point. All of them. So regardless of whether we have a perky pair, a saggy set or we’re not really sure, it’s always a good idea to wear a good fitting bra. Not just for how we look and to help delay the droop but also for how we feel and our health too. But I know they’re not the most comfortable thing. Not sure what to look for when you’re choosing a bra? Here are my top tips on finding a bra that fits well and is comfortable.
First up, get measured. I know it’s a chore and can be a little off-putting if your confidence isn’t at it’s best. But getting yourself properly measured means you’re ¾ of the way there to a good fitting bra. You can’t just guess and hope for the best. Wearing bras can improve posture and prevent a lot of spine problems and back pain. Breasts are heavy and they need support! If you’re not wearing the right size, then the bra can’t do its job. You might as well not be wearing one!
Just like the rest of your body, your bra size changes depending on various factors. Pregnancy, weight loss or gain and even age. So you should keep getting fitted. It isn’t a once in a lifetime thing, keep going to get measured.
EXPERIMENT WITH FIT
Find a fit that works for you. Try different bras to see what feels better for you. From underwired to padded, there are variations to bras that will work better for you. Knix is a great example of how different bras can be and just how comfortable they can be. They offer everything from padded to reversible bras. It’s definitely worth experimenting.
As well as trying different fits, try different designs and colours! It’s amazing how opting for a bright bra can boost your confidence and in turn, it makes wearing a bra more enjoyable. Ta da!
Lastly, hand wash your bras. They need a little TLC to last longer and keep their shape. There’s nothing like a dodgy shaped bra to make them uncomfortable. Remember, they’re investments for your breast health and your confidence, as well as your comfort. Don’t put them in a dryer (ever!) and if you REALLY have to machine wash them make sure they are fastened up and put into a lingerie wash bag. It helps keep the structure of the bra together. It will save you money in the long run too! There’s a good guide here on how to clean your bras if you want some more information.
