What better way to be and feel like a woman than to wear a stylish bra that fits correctly. Wearing the right size bra can make all the difference to your boobs as it will give you required support, feel more comfortable and be secure. Wearing the correct size bra will make you feel like a new woman and give you the confidence to live in a "man's world".
The question is how do you know if you're wearing the wrong size? Well here at Lembrassa we know that using a tape measure is not the best way to determine your bra size instead follow the tips below and start living like a woman.
Women should not have to suffer with wrong fitting bras. If you believe you are wearing the wrong size or are just unsure, see common problems below.
This is a very common problem among women and means that the band size is too big - a band should feel snug around the body and not move. The first thing would be to try the bra on a tighter hook. If you still find the back riding up then you will need to try a bra with a smaller band size - do remember that a smaller band size will mean a bigger cup size (e.g. a 34F would go to a 32G).
The wires should be flat against your rib cage without digging into the breast. If you find the wire is digging in at the side then your cup size is too small and you need to go up at least one cup.
The wires should be flat against your body. If the wire doesn't rest flat then it may be that your cup size is too small. First try and re-arrange the breast in the cup and see if this makes the fit more comfortable. If this doesn't help try a larger cup size - e.g. 36E to 36F
This may mean that your back band is not tight enough and the straps are doing the supporting. The support should come from the band so try moving to a tighter hook and loosen the straps. If the straps still leave marks and are digging in then it is best to get a smaller band size. You might also need to try bras with a wider bra strap.
The bra cup should be smooth over your breasts so if yours is wrinkly it would indicate that your cup size is too big. The best solution would be to wear a smaller cup size bra.
This can give a four boob effect and is a sign that the cup size you're wearing is too small - you will need to increase your cup by at least one size.

Since almost 70% of women wear the wrong size bra, we at Lembrassa have produced tables to show how different countries label their bras. There is a significant difference for D cup sizes upwards so please use these tables to help.
