Have you seen the new Lifetime show, Double Divas? If so, you know the importance of a well-fitting bra. These divas from LiviRae Lingerie are sizing America one bra at a time. Every episode will leave you rolling on the floor laughing. Yet I digress…
Let me ask another question. Did you know more than 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size? A well-fitting bra can eliminate sagging, back pain and not to mention make you look like a “10” in your clothes!
You may not even know you’re wearing the wrong bra size, but if your bra is creating back fat or you’re spilling out of the cup, this blog was written for you.
The fit of a bra is determined by 4 factors:
- Band size
- Cup size
- Strap adjustment
- How it appears under clothing
The most important factor is the band. Most women shop for a bra by the cup size and then then band, allowing themselves to stray between a few sizes on the band. The support is in the band, ladies! Most major department stores will help you determine your correct band size and cup size. It is important to get sized every year or so, as we all know a woman’s body is subject to change.
When trying on a new bra, look at how it looks under a white T-shirt. If you can rock it under that, you can wear it with most things.
You can look even more flattering in your new bra when you slim your middle with any body shapers from the Slimpressions Top Sleekret™ Collection. The Have Nots™ and Tanks a Little™ both were designed for you to bring your own bra. The deep scoop front works with your bra to promote “the girls” by giving them a little boost. The Haves™, The Skinny Mini™ and Tanks A Lot™ all include a Comfy Bralette™ to lift and support without compressing your chest. You can you wear these shapers with or without your bra.
If you’re just
not into traditional bras, check out our Comfy Bralette™. It may very well be the most comfortable bra that you’ll ever wear! It lifts and supports without wires, hooks or padding. The seamless technology we use in the wide back band eliminates visible bra lines. And, the wide shoulder straps don’t dig into your skin and won’t show under your cutest blouse or shirt. Our Comfy Bralette sits lower on your torso and a bit higher under your arms to eliminate those pesky bulges that you find when you’re wearing your traditional bra. Like all of our products, just machine wash on gentle in cold water and tumble dry on low.
Now, who’s ready to trade in their old bra and give “the girls” a little love and a lot more support?
