1) You Have Never Been Properly Fitted
This is one of the biggest mistakes most women, especially those looking for plus-size lingerie, make when buying a bra: you never actually get fitted. Somehow you stumble from training bras to larger and larger sizes that you think fit without ever really knowing if you’re wearing the right size. According to most surveys, there’s a 70% chance that you’re not. Not only will a bra-fitting let you know what cup size you should wear, you will be able to figure out what band size you need as well, which means no more too-tight or too loose bras driving you crazy.
2) You’re Size-Focused
While we have all be known to pay a little too much attention to the label on the inside of our clothes—which is ridiculous because sizes vary everywhere—but bra sizes are one area where you should never worry about the number. Remember, these are a support garment made to fit your body, not anyone’s expectations—even your own—of what your size should be.
3) You Think That You Have to Wear Wires
While wired bras offer a lot of great support for busty women, if you assets are on the more modest side, feel free to explore the wire-free options. Don’t worry, the lack of wires doesn’t mean there’s no support. Recent innovation in fabrics and design mean that these wire-free styles can offer maximum support without needing wires. They give you the ultimate in comfortable support without needing potentially uncomfortable wires to do it!
4) You Focus Only On Function
While your brassiere may be primarily for keeping your girls in check, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t bring a little fun to its form and function. Our slightly padded bra, for example, in available in a variety of gorgeous colors! See, you don’t have to sacrifice style for support!
5) You’re Washing it Wrong
Sorry, you really can’t just toss your bra in the laundry. Well, you can, technically, but be prepared for that once well-fitting garment to stretch, warp beyond all recognition. Do yourself a favour, grab some specialty lingerie soap or just a gentle detergent and wash them by hand and lay them flat to dry.
