Bra Fitting Guide
The underband should feel firm (but not tight or uncomfortable) and sit horizontal across your back. The underband should not ride up, even when you reach your arms above your head. The underband is the anchor for the weight of your boobs, by using the underband it alleviates 80% of the strain through the shoulder straps.
Your breasts should be fully encased by the cups. The neck edge line of the cup should sit gently against the breast without any bulging of breast tissue. If there is gaping in the cups you may have the incorrect size or style of bra. The cup should gently shape your breasts into the desired style you are looking to achieve.
The underwire should sit against the chest wall encasing the entire bust. The wire should not press on any breast tissue.
The Shoulder Straps
The shoulder straps should be comfortable and not dig in. The support comes from the underband, shoulder straps add support and stability. The shoulder straps generally increase in width size with the increase of cup size, this adds comfort to your bra and reduces the straps causing you discomfort.
