Planning to go out for a dance night with her girlfriends, she realized that she doesn’t have the right bra. Oh but how does the bra matter anyway, I mean it’s not like she’s going to take off her clothes.And what about the dance floor? Forget it. She’ll sit in a corner and adjust the under-wire and deal with the quadraboob battle every few minutes.
She opened her bra drawer, only to realize that it’s just a bucket full of bad decisions.There’s this amazing bra that she bought on offer; it’s so pretty and it’s an A cup, I REPEAT, AN A CUP. She’s a C Cup!
And then she spotted a sexy bra that she intentionally bought two sizes smaller so that her cleavage would look noticeable; and then there’s this pretty one that stabs her in her armpits, and then another one, her favourite one that closes in the front, though it’s a little tight but she loves it because her boyfriend has a hard time figuring out how to open it.
Triumph recently did a survey and found that 70% of the women wear the wrong size of bra. In order to provide information about bra fit, why it is important and how to achieve it, the brand is launching a new campaign- Stand Up For Fit. The brand has also created a fit guide which offers advice to help women make informed decisions when buying lingerie.
Is your bra drawer also a bucket full of bad decisions? It’s time to revamp it!
Here’s everything you need to know about finding the right fit:
- Stand straight and breathe.
- Use a measuring tape and measure the under bust width (just below the bust, tight but comfortable enough to let you breathe
- Read the measurements and round up or down to multiples of 5.
- Place the measuring tape at the widest part of the bust. Ensure that you place it in a way that you don’t deform or squeeze the breasts.
- Ensure that the measuring tape is at the same height across the bust as across your back.
- Read the measurements and refer to the table of bra sizes
Wondering why is it so important to find the right size?
- Headaches: A bra that’s too tight causes tension on shoulders, neck and back. This in turn causes headaches.
- Sagging: A wrong size bra can cause the ligaments to stretch, resulting in saggy boobs.
- Back pain: If your bra is loose or too big, it means your boobs are not getting enough support. This leads to back pain.
- Indigestion: Wrong size bra can cause stomach pain and indigestion. Too tight- it’ll dig into your ribs and upper stomach, causing problems inside your body that you don’t even realize.
- AND AN ILL FITTED BRA SPOILS YOUR LOOK!
Before I sign off, here are three things that you should remember about your bra:
- Get fitted every six months to one year. Due to hormones, etc your body, especially the bust area keeps changing. Frequently worn bras have a shelf life of 6 months. Afterwards, they begin to lose shape and offer less support. Also, having the right support will improve posture and alleviate back pain.
- When putting on your bra, always start from the last hook. Once the bands begin to stretch, you can move to the second or third hook.
- Sizing varies for styles, material and silhouettes.
