Every single body shape can look & feel amazing given the right fitting undergarments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let’s chat about undergarments, shall we? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Nothing, and I mean nothing, will change your life more than a good fitting bra. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The day I found Bali bras was the day I started liking the way my shirts fit. It wasn’t the shirts. Although there were styles of shirts that were better than others, as soon as I got a good bra they all fit better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you know how to shop for a good bra? It can be tricky because there are about 9 different shapes of breasts. How’s a girl to know what her shape is?? And then once you know the shape, what type of bra is best for that shape?? It can all be so overwhelming and might I say, embarrassing for some of us. 

 

I hear you girl! This subject was the cause of a LOT of heartache for me as a young girl all the way into motherhood! Boy do I wish I knew then what I know now!! Which is the reason for this article. Hopefully the information here in this post will help you feel more confident in finding the right bra for you.

How to determine your breast shape.

 

In the breast shape dictionary from Third love here https://blog.thirdlove.com/breast-shape-dictionary/ it shows the different shaped breasts that are a possibility. Knowing the shape of your breasts can and will make all the difference in shopping for bras. I know you know what it’s like to finally make the time to go shopping for a bra just to spend hours trying on bras that don’t fit. It’s humiliating and NO FUN! But if you know the shape of your breasts and what type & style will fit best you can cut hours of time and buckets of humiliation out of your bra shopping experience. 

Does your bra fit? Here are some ways you can tell.

  1. If your bra straps are constantly falling off your shoulders, first try tightening the straps. If they still fall off your shoulders, try going down a band size. This will make the straps closer to each other in the back which will prevent slipping straps.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. When you go down a band size, you have to go up a cup size. When you go up a band size, you need to go down a cup size. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. You want your band to lay low in the middle lower part of your back. If the band is riding up in the back, it means the band is too big and you need to go down a band size.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Most, like 95%, of your support comes from the band, not the cup. Your band needs to be snug on the loosest set of hooks. As your bra stretches out, you can tighten your band.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  2. If you have cup overflow: If your breasts are overflowing your cup, it’s time for a larger cup size. That way, you’ll stay supported without feeling squeezed. A full coverage style can also help, as its cups rise higher on your breast, reducing “spillage.”
  • If you have side overflow: Similar to cup overflow, try going up a full or half-cup size — that should do the trick. If not, try a smaller band.

What style is best for me?

There are so many different styles of bras. As I have worked with women to create their own personal style, undergarments are not overlooked. You will naturally gravitate to certain styles based on your personality and likes and dislikes. Your natural personality will give you a sneak peak into what styles you prefer for bras. Of course everyone wants their bra to be comfortable and fit correctly, but some style types prefer the look of comfort while others like the look to be pretty or sexy. Either is completely fine, it just matters that you have what feels and looks great to you. 

Knowing your breast shape and pairing it with your own personal style is a home run in the bra fitting department!
