When trying on new lingerie it is important to move around as you would in everyday life. You should sit down, walk around, bend and move your arms up and down – this way you will know if everything sits perfectly.
The following criteria might be helpful when choosing new lingerie:
Corselet – a poor fit
Too short: the chest is drawn down and pushed flat, the legholes are drawn up.
Too long: the corselet hangs on the body in loose folds.
In both cases the body loses its figure-forming characteristics.
Corselet – a good fit
the corselet or panty girdle fits optimally if the fabric fits closely without being too tight or hanging in folds.
Bra – a poor fit
Bra – a good fit
narrow straps cut in particularly where the bust is full and heavy
wide straps which distribute the weight evenly across the shoulders
the cups are too small
the straps are the right length and do not cut in
no optimal support from below or for the sides
the cups should provide sufficient space to enclose the breast without cutting in
the breast shape is not formed
an inner cup lining forms and gives support to the breast
