This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Figleaves.
Most women are wearing the wrong size bra and don’t even know it. Today, with the help of Figleaves, I’m going to give you tips on buying a bra that fits.
Gentlemen, all three of you who read, this is your time to click away from this post. Hand the computer over to your wife and come back tomorrow for regularly scheduled programming.
Ladies, this is important business, so you might want to take notes. I’m excited to introduce you to Figleaves and help you support your girls.
How to Buy a Bra That Fits
- Support is in the band, not the straps.
Knowing this will change the way you shop for bras. I always thought, probably like many of you, that if I want to lift, lock, and load the girls, I need to tighten my straps. I mean, it kind of makes sense. Pull the straps up and everything rises, but it’s wrong.
The key is in the band that goes all the way around your body. If that fits snugly and securely, you will have all the support you need. The straps only provide 20% of all your support.
- Try a smaller band size.
Figleaves.com says their best-selling size is 32F.
If that’s shocking, you’re probably wearing too big of a band. I did for years. I think there’s a bit of psychological apprehension when we start getting into a cup size D and above, and really, that’s crazy.
Numbers and letters mean so little. We just want a bra that fits perfectly, so we’re comfortable and supported.
It’s likely you need a smaller band size and bigger cup size. Nearly all of us do.
Figleaves has provided us with a video that will make bra fitting crystal clear. If you’ve ever had a question about how a proper bra should fit, you need to watch this video.
Go to Figleaves.com and hover your cursor over the word “lingerie” in the category bar at the top of the page. A drop-down menu will appear. Click on “Fitting Room” and then watch the video.
- Don’t let your cup overflow.
Boobs spread. I don’t know how else to say it. I’m trying my best to be delicate and tasteful, but please work with me here.
When you are putting on your bra, bend over at the waist and help all the chubby flesh from around your breasts fill the cup. This will eliminate the fat spilling out the side of your bra and over the band. It will also fix most back fat.
No more back fat girls. That’s something to shout about.
Now you know why you need a larger cup. Bra fitting is not the time to let your cup overflow.
There is so much more to say on this subject, but go visit Figleaves.com and study the section on bra fitting. Watch the video, look at the photos, and then try on your bras. Chances are you need new undergarments with smaller bands and larger cups.
You can even make a phone call and have a consultation with a bra fitting expert. That is full service my friends and I love it!
Figleaves.com specializes in undergarments, lingerie, swimsuits, sleepwear, and more. They truly have something for everyone. They even carry specialty bras including nursing, sports, and mastectomy bras.
I received this bra and panty set and am delighted to tell you how happy I am with Figleaves.com. This is the best fitting bra I own and I recently bought two new bras from a major retailer specializing in women’s lingerie. Now I’m sorry I did. I wish I knew about Figleaves a month ago.
I will order from Figleaves.com in the future. Absolutely.
Like a building, if the foundation isn’t strong, everything else crumbles. It’s amazing how clothes look and fit differently when my undergarments fit well.
Ladies, foundations first. Remember that.
Now go watch that bra fitting video and learn how a proper bra should look and feel.
