Find your fit

Is your favorite time of the day the minute you take your bra off? You're probably wearing the wrong size! Get yourself to a lingerie store and get a bra fitting. You'll be glad you did!
Find your fit

Your bra doesn't have to be your sworn enemy. You'll be surprised at how much of a difference it makes to wear one that fits as it should. Get a bra fitting today and buy yourself a bra that fits!

Go alone

That's right — we said it. This should be a solo trip, or at least one without children. There's nothing wrong with bringing a girlfriend along, but leave the kids at home for this one if you can. Nothing ruins the fun of bra shopping like a little one pulling down panty displays and talking loudly in the dressing room. As if you needed an excuse for a solo shopping trip, right?

Ask for a measurement

Yep, that's pretty much all it takes. Walk into your closest lingerie store and ask a salesperson for a bra fitting. She'll probably whip a measuring tape out of her pocket and do it right there on the sales floor. It only takes a few seconds, and she can do it right over your clothes.

Try it on!

The measurement she gives is probably going to be a good fit. It may even be perfect fit. But not all bras are created equal. Grab a few different styles of bras off the shelves in the size she suggests and give them a try. If they don't work, ask for more help.

Wear your "best" bra

If you've been having a hard time finding a bra that looks right or feels comfortable, ask the salesperson for advice. She may be able to take a quick look at the bra you're wearing and tell you exactly why it's not working for you.
