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.
When it comes to t-shirt bras, there is a real star that shines above most ... Marie Jo's L'Aventure's TOM. Yes, a wonderful bra named for a man. Go figure! But Tom is the perfect t-shirt bra that comes in a wide variety of shapes. Our most popular among the Tom's are:
Tom Sweetheart Shape - This softly padded bra features heart-shaped cups. The cups offer excellent coverage at the top & help eliminate excess movement or "puddling" that you can sometimes get with a contour bra. The bra is cut high on the upper cups and then plunges into a deep neckline. A favorite feature is the straps which can be worn over the shoulders or around the neck. https://annabellalingerie.com/products/mariejolaventuretom0120826
