Perfect Bras: Bras Should Not Hurt
Why continue to suffer in a bra that just doesn't fit, or worse, in a bra that hurts? Let's pinpoint where your bra hurts. If your cups runneth over, or spill out from below, if you are experiencing the dreaded side boob (flesh mounding up underneath the armpit but over the top of the band) or the unbecoming quadruple boob (flesh mounding up over the top of the cup, splitting the silhouette of your bust line into two parts on each side), then it is time, my friends, to get yourself into a new size bra.
Finding the right bra can seem tricky. We've all heard supposed fit experts telling us to measure around right under our bust and add on 4-5 inches to get our band size. This is a sure-fire recipe for a fit disaster. This band will almost always be too big and the cup too small! For the perfect bra fit, read up on the BGB Bra Fit Method or check out our helpful Bra Sizing Options to find your bra size range.
You can also give our fitting- expert customer service reps a call for free custom bra fitting advice at 866-352-4494. They're very friendly and oh-so knowledgeable!
Then try some bras on in different sizes and styles until you find what fits. Don't get caught up in the cup and band size itself, unless you're going to be ordering the same style and brand bra for the rest of your life (boring!). Not to mention impractical. Even within a brand you can find a very different fit between styles in the same bra size. Try on plenty of styles until you find ones that suit you.
