As you may already know, 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Retail bra fitters may make bra fitting so simple – it may seem to just simply be taking measurements of your band and cup sizes and then turn those numbers into the perfect fit.
Measurements are usually taken with you putting on your most comfortable bra and on top of a t-shirt. Well, as that may seem perfectly right, what they are missing out on the how wide your bust line is.
As the width of the bust line varies from one woman to another, two people of the same bust size may not fit into the same bra.
Emphasis is largely placed on the bra cup and band size while the gore is usually ignored. How far apart your breasts are largely determines which type of bra best fits you.
Do you know?
The length of the gore (the center piece of the bra) would influence how the bra fits you.
If your breasts are close to a point where they are touching, you are sure to be promised of a great cleavage. But also due to the close proximity of your busts, the gore will not be laying flat on body hence making it a poor fit.
This doesn’t mean you are deprived of the privilege of wearing a bra; you just have to find the right one with a shorter and a lower center gore. Take the full cup bra and the plunge bra for instance.
The full cup bra typically has a higher center piece compared to the plunge bra. Due to the lower center piece of the plunge bra, you are sure to be more comfortable wearing it. Best of all, you will not feel as if your breasts are being pulled apart when you force yourself in a full cup bra!
But even if your girls are further apart, having a great cleavage doesn’t have to be a dream. Just find the right bras with the right padding at the right angles to bring them closer together to add the necessary volume and to uplift them.
Using the same examples of a full cup and a plunge bra, you are still able to wear both because the full cup is spaced out to comfortably sit your breasts while the plunge will give you some cleavage if it is perfectly padded at the bottom and the sides to lift and bring your ladies together.
Bra fitting is not just about cup and band sizes. Do look out for the width of your bust line. How far apart your busts are do have an effect on your right fit. Happy bra shopping!
