Bra Fitting Tips: When, Why and How to Find the Right One for You

Most of us expect our breasts to stop growing once we hit our twenties.  So we keep wearing the same bras in our twenties, thirties, forties and even later.  However, a woman’s body is never static.  There are all kinds of reasons why your breasts might continue to change even after you’re past your developmental period.  So it’s important to consider some bra fitting tips.

Why Change Your Bra?

For some women, breasts actually continue to grow even after they’ve hit their twenties.  For other women, weight gain or weight loss can result in larger or smaller breasts.  Motherhood, of course, can also result in an increase in breast size.

So never assume that your breasts are going to stay the same size and shape throughout your life.  Keep checking to see if you are comfortable in the bras you wear.  People purchase larger or smaller clothes as their bodies change.  You need to do this with your bras too.

Is Your Bra Too Tight or Too Loose?

Every six months, you should take stock of your lingerie and how it feels on your body.  Are your underwires beginning to dig in?  Do the straps of your bras feel too tight?  Or have they actually stretched out due to washing and become too loose?

Go through everything you have and separate the things that still feel good from the things that are too tight or too loose.  If all your bras are starting to dig a little bit or if they’ve stopped providing adequate coverage (like when your nipple keeps popping out over the top), it’s time to go bra-shopping.

Strap Size vs. Cup Size

If you feel like your bra is feeling tight around the strap, then it’s time to increase the strap size.  This means that if you’re a 34C, you might need to switch to a 36C.  However, if it’s the cup that’s beginning to feel small, you’ll need to get a new bra in a new cup size.  So if you’re a 36C, you might need to go to a 36D.

Sometimes, it’s a bit difficult to find larger cup sizes.  So we end up just going for a larger strap size and hope that it works.  However, it usually doesn’t.  So if you need a larger cup size, it’s best to search for it until you find it.

Also feel free to try out a few different bras and choose the one that you can breathe most freely in, without giving up support.

Changing Panty Size

The same goes for panties too, of course.  If you’ve gained a bit of weight, then it’s possible that you still fit into the old panties.  However, they might start digging in on the sides or right under your tummy, which is uncomfortable and not very attractive.  Why not buy new ones that fit you well?  This might make you feel good about your body overall.

Beautiful Bras for a Large Bust

Every women feels better when she has a comfortable bra on. However sacrificing beautiful lingerie shouldn’t have to come in-between ladies and their comfort. If you’re looking for the best bras for larger breasted women this list will help you add a couple of great pieces to your wardrobe. All of these brands specialize in large cup sizes. They have a common focus which is to make comfort, support, and beauty all equally important.

  •  Curvy Kate: Great coverage for cup size D-K while still looking delicate and beautiful.
  • Parfait by Affinitas: From the popular Affinitas brand, this is a special line that serves large busted women to fit their needs. Still delivers a high-end product through this sister brand.

Caring for Your Lingerie

Your lingerie takes care of you when it counts, so it only makes sense to return the favor! Caring for lingerie doesn’t have to be a long or labor-intensive process, but it is integral for making sure your favorite pieces have long, active lives.

When it comes to maintaining your dainties, be aware of wear and tear. Panties and stockings are good for a single night of fun, but bras are better off worn a couple of times before washing. Unless you’re sweating heavy, keep your bras out of the hamper a little longer to preserve and protect them. Bras are noticeably more complex than panties, and washing too frequently can strain delicate fabrics, warp wires, or stretch elastic before their time.

There’s a reason they’re called your “delicates.” Treat them as such!

Read all labels carefully, or just play it safe and always wash by hand. Use a mild detergent in cold water, agitate gently, and rinse thoroughly– Especially those padded areas prone to collecting sweat. No need to “squish” your bra pads, though, as that can lead to cup distortion. Just press them lightly to help expel the water.

If you do need to machine wash, secure your hooks and remove any detachable buttons, ribbons, snaps, etc. (hey, we all know how elaborate some pieces can be) to make sure they don’t snag and use a lingerie bag to sustain elasticity and prevent deformation. Be sure to avoid the dryer, though! All that heat is killer on elastic. Always let your hard-not-to-mention unmentionables air dry, instead. Panties should be dried in open air on top of a towel, as hanging can cause unnecessary stretching.

Try to store your panties, stockings, and bras separately. When storing bras, avoid inverting one cup into the other: It’s just one more way to inadvertently destroy their shape! Hang them up, instead. Or kill two birds with one stone by drying and storing your bras and lingerie on a Bra Tree!

When you know the individual needs of each delicate piece, it’s much easier to take care of them. With a little understanding and diligent care, your lingerie will keep you feeling sexy and confident for a long time.

The Hottest Closet Accessory is Here

Women love their accessories, and no matter how many we have it’s never enough. We still need the right color/style/pattern/length to complete the perfect outfit. Yet as our collection grows, it all ends up a tangled mess in a dresser or jewelry table drawer. The women’s accessory solution is here: the Bra Tree.

No more rummaging and untangling to find undergarments and add the finishing touches to your outfit. The Bra Tree is your complete solution to accessory organization.

Bra’s and Panties

Necessity is the mother of invention. Keep your bra’s in good shape and have a designated drying place (as you know, bra’s should never go in the dryer). Keep them organized by color or style. You can do the same with your underwear.

Lingerie and Bathing Suits

You have that drawer with your folded intimates: those for special occasions and the ones you wear just for you to feel sexy. You can now have them hanging on a Bra Tree not only to keep them organized, but also to keep the creases out. Have matching sets paired or hang separately for mix and match fun. Bathing suits can be treated the same.

Scarves and Belts

Whether you only wear scarves during cold weather or year-round as part of your personal style, a Bra Tree is great for keeping them organized. Separate by color, length, or style. Hang them paired with a matching belt, or have the belts also organized.

Jewelry

No more knotted chains in your jewelry box. Hang necklaces according to length or paired with matching bracelets.

Any way you hang it, your closet and your drawers have never looked so good. With 2 levels of 6 hooks each, you have the ultimate accessory hanger that will eliminate the tangled mess that would inevitably cause damage. Contact us today to find your perfect fit!

Comfort and Support After Breast Augmentation

Choosing the best bra to wear after your breast augmentation can be a difficult task. You want to find comfort and support, as well as style. There are many reconstruction bras out there. Here are few types to get you started.

Surgical Compression Bra

Right after surgery, your doctor will give you recommendations on what type of bra is best to wear. One of the more common suggestions is the surgical compression bra. It is form fitting with molded cups for maximum support, hook-and-eye closures on the front and back and velcro straps for ease of adjustment. The additional velcro compression band aids in support and stabilization while your breasts are in the healing process. This bras also helps with proper circulation and decreasing swelling and bruising.

Full Coverage Bra

Another suggestion your doctor may make is for a full coverage bra. This bra has full supporting cups with little to no exposed cleavage. Some extend down several inches below the breasts for added support. They likely have wide velcro shoulder straps and either a velcro or zipper front for ease of removal and adjustment. There are some which come with loops for drainage tubes.

Sports Bra

A type of full coverage bra is the sports bra. They are sturdier than regular bras offering more support and minimal breast movement. The lack of structure is more forgiving for uneven breasts. They come in many styles; seamless, front/back hooks, adjustable shoulder straps, and racerback are only a few differences to look for when choosing a comfortable sports bra.

Coobie Bra

Another seamless wonder is the coobie bra. It boasts a one size fits most: from 32A to 36D and then some. It comes with removable pads which can provide coverage for reconstructed nipples. Adjustable and removable straps are interchangeable with the included clear plastic one. The coobie comes in v-neck, scoop-neck, and bandeau styles all in many colors. It has no hooks or other fasteners, and there is no under-wire. They have good support with their strechability and breast coverage.

Soft Cup Bra

Exactly as the name implies, a soft cup bra is unlike the typical molded cup bra in the although it does have a molded cup, there is no stiff structure. Their support comes from the wireless band below the breasts and the sturdy adjustable straps. Soft cups can be found in many styles including sports bras and full coverage bras.

Having the right bra means nothing if you do not wear the correct size. So don’t forget you will need to get measured after your augmentation. You can have it done professionally or you can do it yourself.

If you’re looking for an easy solution to keeping your new bras organized and in great condition, contact us for more information about the Bra Tree. Happy bras = happy breasts.

What’s Better for a Breastfeeding Mom? Sexy Bra or Comfort?

Getting ready to become a breastfeeding mom? You’ll definitely need some new bras. But whats better? Sexy bra or comfort?

Wearing Sexy Bras While Breastfeeding

During the early days of motherhood, feeling sexy can be challenging. Your body’s still recovering from everything it’s been through with labor and delivery. Plus you’re likely to be tired and sleep deprived with a newborn under your care. During such times, a sexy bra can offer a great lift to your self-image. Also, it can help get you in the mood for resuming intimate relations with your spouse. However, there is a big downside to wearing a sexy bra while breastfeeding, and that’s the fact that it can be uncomfortable to wear.

Wearing Comfortable Nursing Bras

When wearing a bra that’s specifically made for breastfeeding, you won’t have to worry about comfort being an issue. Thus, you can easily wear the bra throughout the day and into the night. That’s great considering how you’ll probably want to wear a bra while sleeping to provide some support to your now larger breasts. However, there is a con to the typical nursing bra, and that is how they’re usually not all that attractive in appearance.

Owning Some of Each

Since there are pros and cons to both sexy bras and comfortable nursing bras, you’re probably best to own some of each. This way, you can dress for comfort when at home with your new baby, and then simply change into a sexier bra when going out or having some alone time with your spouse.

Give your bosom buddies some love!
