Big Girls Bras Fitting Guides and Help

Fitting Bras

You've probably heard the statistics - it's estimated that up to 85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.

That's an astounding number, but not so surprising when you look at what we know and don't know about bras. Things like:

Most of us have never been professionally fitted for a bra.

Most mass-market retailers don't sell bras in a cup size larger than a DD so we make do with what's available, even if we need a larger cup size.

Bra sizing and the relationship between band size and cup size is confusing and never adequately explained.

What we know about bras and how they should fit came from our mothers, who probably had never been professionally fitted and who learned from their moms, who had never been professionally fitted, and so on.

That's where The Big Girls Bras Guide to Fitting the Right Bra for You comes in. We've written this guide for you, so you can finally find and fit the right bra. So you never again have to settle for an almost right bra.

Fitting Swimwear

Fitting a swimsuit can be hard and sometimes even frustrating.

All manufacturers use a different way of sizing for their styles therefore a size 6 from one manufacture isn't necessarily the same for the next.

When trying on a swimsuit you have to be sure to lift your arms, bend and sit. This will help you ensure that everything is staying in place.

Fitting Underwear

Types of Underwear Styles:

They offer full coverage, comfort, low cut design and no visible panty lines.
Tip: This style works best with Jeans and Skirts.

Low Rise:
They sit low on the hips so that they won't shoe when you bend or sit.
Tip: This style works best with low rise pants and jeans.

Bikini Cut:
They offer medium coverage, high cut legs and the waistband doesn't sit low on the hips.
Tip: This style works best with skirts, shorts and medium to heavy fabrics.

They offer full coverage and great comfort.
Tip: This style works best under casual clothes, pajamas and at the time of the month when more support and coverage is needed.

They offer minimal rear coverage and no panty lines.
Tip: This style works best with form fitted clothes.

Fitting Shapewear

Shapewear can give you the sleek, curvy figure you have always wanted.

How to fit panties, girdles and shapers is typically the work of a few minutes.

In most cases, all you need to do is measure the hips with a tape measure around the fullest part of your hips, and then measure the waist.

Hip size is the leading factor in selecting the right size of panties, girdles and shapers, but the waist measurement does play a role and may require you to go up or down a size for comfort.
