A Woman Should Determine Her Actual Bra Size and Fit, Not Anyone from a Bra Specialty Store
The most common complaints I often see when reading about bras is about size and fitting. A woman even said that if only she could go braless without her boobs getting the pains from too much wobbling, she would prefer to not wear one. Some women who have hefty boobs find that the weight that they carry at the front causes the band of the bra to stretch out and ride up their backs. Others find it uncomfortable to find that their breasts are showing at the bra bottoms, and still others complain that it is really difficult to find a right fitting bra.
These issues are all caused by wrong size bras. And, friends, may I point out that there are also health problems associated with wearing a bra that does not fit your body. Included here are shoulder and back pains, neck pains, and posture problems. They can actually change the shape of your breasts, and also cause premature sagging. It is not a good news for us women, especially if we consider that a majority of bra wearing females (is it 80%?, or more?) are wearing bras that have the wrong size. Have you ever wondered why?
Women who are not comfortable with the bras that they wear often follow the advice they receive from different sites that they visit – to go into a bra specialty store and be fitted. Then the store’s sales assistants will recommend their brand to these women and the size that they believe will fit the customers. The women buy the bras, wear them, and find themselves suffering from the same problems after several weeks of wearing them. There is a simple reason for this: measurements done at the stores and boutiques do not give the real accurate results. If you are a 32F, you try a 32F bra and it may not fit you. One other thing, if you are a 32F, the people at the store may think that your size is not normal, so they will hand you a bra size and make you believe that this is for you. Is it because they know better?
This should not be the case. As I have mentioned at the top, the measurements are not always accurate. So, you should find a way to get an exactly fitting bra, and that is going first to band sizes. Try on several bras until you got the band right. Then find the right cup size. The key here is to try different styles. Like women, bras are created differently. You should decide if you are comfortable with the band and the cups. You can adjust a cup size up or down until you can move around, raise your arms and be active without your breasts showing at the top or at the bottom of the cups.
I would like to suggest to specialty bra stores to always consider the women’s bodies when suggesting a size to their customers. For you, women out there, it is your comfort that should come first when choosing a bra, not what the fitting counselor of a store says.
