The perfect fit

Get the perfect fit from the back

  1. The length of your straps should be adjusted enough to support the cup, but should also feel comfortable.

  2. Your underband should be nice and snug when fastened on the loosest hook. You shouldn't be able to pull it more than two inches away from your back.

  3. The underband should sit horizontally level across your body, in line with the wires at the front.

Get the perfect fit from the front

  1. There should be no bulging or gaping at the top of the cups.

  2. The wire should completely enclose each breast, sit right in the crease underneath your breasts, and finish under your arms.

  3. The wire should sit flat against your ribcage, from the middle of your chest and along the crease of your bust, with absolutely no lifting away.

Bra Style Guide

Full cup bra

A full cup bra covers the entire bust to give a great shape and support. A full cup bra is perfect for everyday wear and is often the best bra style for a large bust, offering comfort and support.

Non-wired bra

Non-wired bras provide support and comfort without the use of underwires. The shape this bra gives your bust is less defined than the shape an underwired bra gives. These bras are useful for lounging, sleeping and when pregnant.

Minimiser bra

A minimiser bra will redistribute the breast tissue giving the appearance of a reduced bust size yet will still be comfortable to wear. They are ideal to wear with fitted tops and button-up shirts if you find the fabric a little stretched or the buttons pull.

T-shirt bra

T-Shirt bras are also known as smooth or seam-free bras. T-Shirt bras are often padded but they can be unpadded. As one of the best bra styles for a smaller bust, they are designed with a seamless surface for a ridge-free appearance under close-fitting tops.

Front fastening bra

Front fastening bras are a great option for creating a smooth back, especially if you’re wearing tight-fitting clothing. They’re also great for low-cut necklines. If you struggle with back fasteners or have restrictive movement, front fastening bras are the ideal solution.

Balcony bra

Balcony bras give a lower coverage than full cup bras and can add shape and uplift to the bust line. This style enables you to wear a lower cut neckline and traditionally has wider set straps giving a wide square neckline.

Plunge bra

Whether padded or unpadded, the low coverage of a plunge bra allows you to expose a sexy cleavage. The low centre- front on a plunge bra makes it perfect to wear with low cut tops and dresses.

Sports bra

Sports bras are designed to reduce breast movement during exercise. Wearing a sports bra also protects the ligaments that support the breast tissue. It is very important to wear the correct size to get the benefits and proper support a sports bra is designed to give.

Multiway bra

Depending on the bra, they can be adapted to be a halterneck, racer back or one-strap bra. A multiway bra is a useful addition to any woman’s underwear drawer. If you’ve got the support you need, a multiway bra may also be worn strapless.
