Did you know? 80% of women wear the wrong bra size.

Wearing the wrong bra size can lead to sagging, back and neck pain, and scarring. It’s important to get fitted if your bra is digging in, slipping, sagging, bulging, or causing you any pain.

Your bra should be flush with you bust - when fitting a bra, if the under wire lifts in the middle of your bra it’s too small. If it lifts at the side, your bra is too big.

Your new bra should always be worn on the loosest hook. Over time you should move up 1 hook at a time. Straps should be able to shift up to 1 inch on either side without disrupting the fit.

The Smooth Bra

If you’re bustier, a smooth bra will minimise appearance. These bras are comfortable and sleek, plus they provide the support and lift you need.

The Molded Cup

A molded cup is better for shape and lift - these include padded, push-up and contour bras, and there are a myriad to choose from.

Control Wear

Control wear is for smoothing areas and shouldn’t be worn head to toe only the places you need it. Our range of shapewear saviours will keep you covered!

Accessories

Your bra cup must cover your bust completely to ensure maximum comfort. A bra strap extender can assist during times when your bust fits differently, for example during pregnancy.
