Once you've got the bra hooked, and adjusted the band as needed, it's time to "swoop and scoop" your breasts in the bra cups to get the perfect fit and shaping.
- Reach your right hand into your left bra cup and slip the fingers along the side of the breast and under the breast - "swooping" your hand into the cup to position your breast properly in the cup
- Lift from the side and around the front, positioning the breast squarely in the cup, so that the breast tissue is evenly distributed and properly shaped - "scooping" the breast into place
- Repeat with the left hand in the right bra cup
Some people find that the swoop and scoop is more effective if you bend forward at the waist, so you're leaning forward when you adjust and it's easier to position the breasts.
By doing the swoop and scoop, you position your breasts properly in the cups for optimum shaping. This can affect bra fit and even bra size - without the breast tissue properly distributed in the cups, you may not be taking full advantage of the bra's shaping, and you may even think you need a bigger or smaller cup - when in reality all you need to do is swoop and scoop!
