For your bra to give you the right amount of comfort and support, it’s important that it fits correctly.
The problem is, a lot of us don’t really know how to tell if a bra fits right or not. Is the strap too tight? Is the cup too big?
As a bra brand focused on comfort and confidence, we at Anita & Rosa Faia understand the importance of finding the right fit for your bra and in particular for your wireless bra with support. Trust us, it’s easier than you think once you know how the perfect bra feels!
Benefits Of a Perfect Fitting Bra
When it comes to finding a supportive wireless bra, the right fit can make all the difference. Many women underestimate the significance of finding a bra that fits properly, but the benefits go beyond just comfort.
The Comfort Factor: Say Goodbye to Discomfort and Pain
Wearing an ill-fitting bra can cause discomfort and pain that can negatively impact your day-to-day activities. The wrong bra size can lead to pinching, digging, and poking, resulting in soreness, redness, and even bruising. It can also cause shoulder and back pain, as the weight of your breasts may not be properly supported and distributed.
When you wear a bra that fits well, it provides proper support to your breasts and distributes the weight evenly, alleviating discomfort and pain. The straps stay in place without digging into your shoulders, and the band fits snugly without pinching or riding up. You can go about your day with ease, without constantly adjusting your bra or feeling discomfort in your chest and back.
Boost Your Confidence: Look and Feel Amazing
A bra that fits you perfectly can work wonders for your confidence. When you wear a bra that supports and enhances your natural shape, you feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin. A well-fitting bra lifts and shapes your breasts, creating a flattering silhouette.
Not only does a properly fitted bra make your clothes fit better, but it also improves your posture, making you stand taller and feel more confident in your body. When you feel confident in your appearance, it can have a positive impact on your self-esteem and boost your overall confidence, both in personal and professional settings.
Health Benefits: Maintain Breast Health
Wearing the wrong bra size can also have negative effects on your breast health. A bra that is too tight or too small can compress your breasts, inhibiting proper lymphatic flow and causing discomfort. On the other hand, a bra that is too loose or too big may not provide enough support, leading to breast sagging and stretching of the ligaments over time.
By wearing a bra that fits you correctly, you can maintain proper breast health. A well-fitting bra supports the natural shape and movement of your breasts, without compressing or constraining them. This can help prevent breast sagging, discomfort, and potential health issues, ensuring your breasts stay healthy and happy.
How To Know If Your Wireless Bra Fits Correctly
Wireless bras are known for their comfort, usually made with soft and breathable material and with a shape that contours to your body. But to get the most out of a wireless bra with support, you’ll need to make sure it fits just right.
In our wireless bras, we carry cup sizes ranging from AA to H and band sizes 30-52, ensuring that all bodies can be comfortable and all women can be confident. Here’s how to figure out which size is right for you.
The foundation of a well-fitting bra is the band size. The band should fit snugly around your torso, parallel to the ground, without riding up or digging into your skin. To check the band size, try sliding two fingers under the band.
If it feels comfortable and you can easily move your fingers, then it’s a good fit. If it’s too loose, consider going down a band size, and if it’s too tight, go up a size.
The cups of a wireless bra should fully encapsulate your breasts without any spillage or gaping. The cups should lie flat against your chest and not create any bulges or wrinkles. To determine the right cup size, make sure your breasts are fully contained within the cups, and there is no empty space.
If your breasts are overflowing or the cups are wrinkling, try a larger cup size. On the other hand, if the cups are too big and creating gaps, consider a smaller cup size.
The straps of a wireless bra should provide adequate support without digging into your shoulders. Adjust the strap length to ensure a comfortable fit that keeps the cups in place without causing discomfort.
If the straps are leaving marks on your shoulders or falling off, adjust them accordingly. Remember that the straps should stay in place throughout the day without needing constant readjustment.
The underarm area is another crucial factor to consider when checking if your wireless bra fits correctly. The bra should sit smoothly against your skin without causing any bulges or cutting into your armpits.
If you notice any excess flesh spilling out from under the arms or the band digging into the skin, try a larger size or a different style that offers more coverage.
The center gore is the piece of fabric that sits between the cups of a bra. In a wireless bra, the center gore should lie flat against your chest and not poke or rub against your skin. If you feel discomfort or notice any redness or irritation in the center gore area, try a different size or style that provides a better fit.
Comfort is paramount when it comes to finding the perfect wireless bra. You should be able to wear the bra for an extended period without feeling any discomfort or pain. Pay attention to how the bra feels on your body throughout the day and make adjustments as necessary to ensure maximum comfort.
