How Should a Bra Band Fit

The bra band will give the majority of support, so you want to make sure it’s a correct fit. When you get a new bra, you’ll want to make sure you are using the first clasp.

How Should a Bra Fit in the Front

In between your two separate underwire cups is what is called a “gore”. The center gore should be tact against your sternum.

Cup Size

If your breast tissue overflows or if there's a gap, it’s a sign that you either need to change bra style or get a different cup size. A proper fitting bra will provide a smooth appearance.

Swoop and Scoop

This is a technique you will do after putting on your bra to make sure the breast tissue is pulled from the sides into the center of your body.

How Should a Bra Fit Under the Arm

The underwire should not dig into your underarm or rest on you breast tissue. If it does, it’s most likely a sign that you are in the wrong size or style of bra.
