TIPS FOR FINDING THE RIGHT FIT
When trying on bras, there are a few signs to look out for to ensure that you have the right style and fit.
- Always try your bra using the last clasp because with time, the elastic will wear down and you will need to adjust the clasp for a better fit.
- Make sure that you adjust the straps so that they are taut without digging into your shoulders. Remember that a bra should be comfortable and not painful to wear.
- The strap at the back should also not dig into the skin and should remain horizontal. If it is riding up your back, try adjusting the straps and if that does not fix it, go up a band size.
