Do I really need to wear an underwire bra?

Underwires were invented to give a bra more support. So, do you need an underwire? No. If you don’t like underwires, you don’t have to wear one. The lingerie industry manufactures an enormous selection of wire-free or soft cup bras.

What type of bra should I wear with….?

Tight jumper – A seamless, uplifting bra
Bulky jumper – A bra with shaping
Sheer blouse – A seamless flesh-tone bra
Tight tee or polo shirt – A seamless bra
Halter, tank, strapless – A strapless, convertible or halter bra
Business suit without blouse – A bra designed with a low centre panel.

Why should I pay more than $25.00 for a bra?

In lingerie, you really do get what you pay for. At first glance, most women think there’s not much fabric, so it shouldn’t cost very much. Well, the truth is the fabric is not the major cost; labour is. Making a bra is very labor-intensive. Less expensive bras can be made with as few as 10 pieces. More expensive bras can have over 40. The more expensive bras have craftsmanship, detail and design. Fabric and elastic choices can also drive up the price. For example, all lace is not the same. Expensive lace will have more detail and design, as well as dimension. All elastic is not the same; the more expensive elastic has a longer life. More expensive bras really do last longer. The next time you go shopping for lingerie, take a minute and look at the sewing done on the trim, how the elastic is sewn on, how the seams are finished.

I have a small bust size, do I still need to wear a bra?

Yes! Often, small-breasted women will wear an undershirt and no bra, or flimsy triangle bras held together with elastic. Neither choice gives you any support, even A-cups need tissue and muscle support. A bra with light foam padding or fiberfill will add a natural-looking shape to your breasts. A padded bra with push up pads will create some cleavage. If you’re not be interested in cleavage or enhanced shape, there are bras on the market in your size with no padding, but provide support and have underwire or can be wire free.

What is the best method to putting on my bra?

Method 1:

  1. Begin by slipping the straps over your shoulders.
  2. Bend over at the waist and ease your breasts into the cups. Your nipples should be centred in the   cup, and the cup should completely contain the breast (with the exception of push-up and demi cup styles).
  3. Hook the bra closure in back, and then stand upright.
  4. Run your finger along the area where the bra’s label is to make sure it is lying smooth and flat against your skin.
  5. Tug downward on the back of the bra so that it rests beneath the shoulder blades. The line of the bra should be horizontal from front to back.
  6. Visually check to see that your breasts are in the proper position.

Method 2:

  1. Wrap your bra around your waist and hook the closure in front of you.
  2. Turn your bra until the front of your bra is centred.
  3. Bring bra up so that the bra band is resting directly under the breasts.
  4. Slip the shoulder straps over your shoulders.
  5. Run your finger along the area where the bra’s label is to make sure it is lying smooth and flat against your skin.
  6. Tug downward on the back of the bra so that it rests beneath the shoulder blades. The line of the bra should be horizontal from front to back.
  7. Bend over at the waist and ease your breasts into the cups. Move the breast around with your hand until it is satisfactorily in the cup. Your nipples should be centred in the cup, and the cup should completely contain the breast (with the exception of push-up and demi cup styles). If your bra has a centre seam, make sure your nipple is on the seam – this will reduce your nipples from showing.
  8. Stand upright and visually check to see that your breasts are in the proper position.
