What is A

What is A "Sister" Size?

The vast majority of women are wearing the wrong size bra!   We hear it everyday .... "I'm not sure if I am wearing the right size bra".  What they are really saying is "I AM POSITIVE I AM NOT WEARING THE RIGHT SIZE BRA".  

The most common problem is women typically wear a bra that is too large in the band & too small in the cup.   Many customers state their size as a 36D, but after a fitting, may find that a 30F is their ideal size.  This sounds crazy, right??  But wearing a too large band & too small cup means your breasts are supported by your bra straps (rather than your band) which puts unnecessary pressure on your shoulders & also pulls your band up your back.

So why do stores like Victoria's Secret WANT to put you in the wrong size bra?? They don't!   If your true size is a 30F & they don't carry that size, stores will put you in a "Sister Size" ... meaning that the volume of the cup is the same & will provide coverage.  But look at the chart below.  Each cup has the same volume, however notice that the body of a 30F woman is very different from someone who is a true 38C.  Wouldn't you prefer a bra that correctly fits your unique body?90% of the support of your bra should come from your band (not straps).  Think of a seesaw.....your band in the back supports your "girls" on the front.  If you are wearing a band that is too big, you will most likely have coverage for your breasts, but you are giving away your support!  At Anna Bella, we carry brands offering a large variety of band to cup ratios to make sure you get the best fit for your unique body!   Give your "girls" a nice lift today by finding your ideal size.

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.)
