Everything from choosing the design and colour, to measuring for your first bra is exciting. However, you might feel awkward about talking to your mum or close relative about bra shopping for the first time. If that’s the case, then worry no more - we’re here to guide you through all you need to know about bras, to help you feel positive and prepared!
Using a tape measure, measure around your body in three places:
1) Under your bust
2) On your bust (the fullest part)
3) 2” above the nipple
You can do this in centimetres or inches. WhatsApp your measurements to us at Lil-Lets Talk and we’ll calculate your size for you ASAP.
Have you been measured for your first bra and now don’t feel like it fits quite right? If you think your bra doesn't fit properly, then put it on and look in the mirror to check for the most common fit problems:
Remember, the band around your body should be in line with the wires at the front of your bra and if not, you may need a bigger back size. Or you could try the other hooks on the back of the bra, remembering that the hooks closest to the end of the strap are the loosest.
Proper measuring for your first bra is very important to make sure you have the right size as an ill-fitting bra is not only useless at supporting your breasts but is likely to make you feel rubbish. A well-fitting bra is like a best friend: supportive, comfortable and makes you feel good about yourself!
