When choosing the right bra for you:

It's good to always fit new bras together with a shirt. Choose a suitably light shirt that you wear often and be sure to mirror the view sideways as well. In the case of an inconspicuous bras, that you do not want to be seen under light shirts, for example, you should also pay attention to the lighting in which you fit the bra.

If fitting bra size for you seems to be a mystery or your old bars have felt unfitting in size, read the following tips extra carefully. You can put your own old bra on you and compare their fit with these instructions:


  •  To start using the bra, always place the clasps in the loosest position first
  •  The other rows of hooks are for later use when the perimeter of the bra has begun to loosen
  • When you raise your hands, the bra should stay in place and not rise with movement
  • When standing in a normal posture, the back of the bra should be flush with the front
  • On first use, the bra feels snug on

If you suspect that the circumference of the bra you ordered is too loose, you can try putting the hooks on the back in the tightest spot. This gives a little hint of what an one step smaller girth would feel on. If the adjustment goes easily the tightest, a smaller circumference size would definitely be a good choice. Please note the parallel sizes here.

Parallel sizes of bras

Parallel sizes refer to bra sizes in which the size of the bra cup remains approximately the same, but the circumference of the bra changes; it is good to know that the size of the cup is always proportional to the circumference of the bra, i.e. the C-cup  in the 75 circumference bras is smaller than the C-cup in the 80 circumference bras. Take, for example, a bra size 80B which feels too loose in its wearer but suitable for its cup. In this case, the parallel size is 75C, which is one step tighter in circumference and one cup larger in size. Another example where 80B feels too tight on its wearer, the parallel size is 85A, one step greater in circumference but a step smaller in cup size. In other words, when reducing the circumference, the cup must be increased by one size and when increasing it must be reduced by one size. So simple that it hurts!


  • The fit of the cup is affected by four different things: the polarity of the surroundings, the correct adjustment of the straps, the depth of the cup, and the size of the underwire
  • The underwires are conveniently placed behind the chest and do not press on the breast tissue or armpit
  • The cup fills well as the edge of the bra settles along the chest
  •  If the cup feels the right size but the rim does not fit goodly to the chest, the perimeter may be too loose or the cup may be too deep
  •  If, on the other hand, part of breast are left outside the cup, the cup is either too flat or the wire is too small / narrow
