Check Your Bra Fit Points Use the guide below to check the fit of your bras at home.
B A N D You want the band to fit like a "snug hug" on the smaller part of your back. It should sit horizontally around your body, and not ride up your back. If the band is angled up toward the back, it is too big. 90% of your bra's support is your band ... not your straps. Now, raise your arms. The bra should remain rooted firmly against your ribcage. If it pulls away, your band is too big.
C E N T E R G O R E The center of the bra should sit flat against your sternum. If it pulls away, your cups are too small. (And you probably have a uni-boob!)
U N D E R W I R E The underwire should sit entirely behind your breast tissue. Invite all your breast tissue into the cup using a "swoop & scoop" motion. If the underwire cuts into breast tissue, not only is it uncomfortable, but over time you can have migrated breast tissue - - breast tissue that has gone in search of another place to live because there's no room for it in too-small cups (usually in your armpit).
Late at night when your having trouble sleeping, do you ever turn to really old movies and just sit amazed at how beautiful the women of the 1950's were? I do, and I've often fantasized about drumming up all my inner courage and doing a photo shoot that my husband could make in to a really cool calendar to hang it in his locker at work (he really doesn't have a locker but you get what I'm saying.)
If you have to postpone your dream vacation to Paris, you can still have the Parisian experience every girl dreams about. A day out with your besties having coffee, sipping champagne and shopping for the finest French goods sounds like a great alternative.
