The straps are slightly wider to reduce stress on the shoulders and give added support
The bottom of the cup is designed to provide greater support and comfort for larger breasts
Full-cup bras offer great shape and support, and full-coverage cups give a smooth outline under clothes
Seams are reinforced for support and stitched flat so they don't show under clothes
1. The underband should fit snugly and sit level at the front and back
2. You should be able to move your arms back and forth without hitting your breasts
3. The underwire should sit flat against your breastbone, between the cups
4. Your breasts should be fully enclosed in each cup
5. Straps should be secure enough to hold the cup in place, but not feel too tight
Did you know the wrong bra fit can cause headaches, neck pain, or tingling in your hands? If your breasts aren't supported correctly by a bra, the weight of your breasts will be carried by your bra straps. This will cause the underband to ride up and the straps to cut in, putting pressure on the nerves in your shoulders.
