Let's talk about something that most of us wear every day but might not give much thought to – bras.

Whether you're a lingerie enthusiast or someone who just throws on the first one you find, the importance of a well-fitted bra cannot be overstated. In this post, we're diving into the wonderful world of bra fittings, demystifying the process, and uncovering the secrets to ultimate comfort and confidence.


The Science of Bra Support

Bra fitting is not just about aesthetics; it's a science. Imagine your bra as a superhero cape, providing the support your girls need to conquer the day. It's all about the band, cups, and straps working together in perfect harmony. Forget the notion that bra fittings are only for special occasions – your breasts deserve that superhero treatment every day!


The Bra Band: The Unsung Hero

Let's start with the unsung hero of bra fittings – the band. The band should be snug but not tight, offering the majority of the support. Too loose, and it's a free-for-all; too tight, and you're in for a day of discomfort.

The band is where most women go wrong. Nine times out of ten, a woman comes in with a band that is too big, giving her virtually no support. If you self-identify with a band riding up your back, it’s time to come in for a bra fitting to help you find the right band size, paired with the right cup size.

Bra Cup Size Chronicles

Now, onto the cups. The cups should encapsulate your breasts, with no spillage or gaps. We're aiming for the Goldilocks zone – not too big, not too small, but just right. Don't be shy about exploring how your breast tissue falls into each cup style until you find the right shape for your body. After all, we're talking about your lovely lady lumps, and they deserve the royal treatment.


The Truth about Bra Straps 

Straps have long been touted as the kings of support, which is a fallacy. Straps are like the trusty sidekicks of the bra world. They should sit comfortably on your shoulders, providing additional support, but really leaving that band as the star of the show.

The trick with your straps is to adjust them so that they are loose enough for your band to sit low and tight on your back, but tight enough to avoid falling off your shoulders. Adjust the bra straps as needed – it's all about finding that sweet spot between too tight and too loose. If you have indentations in your shoulders from your bra, it’s time to come in for a bra fitting to help you find the right band size, paired with the right cup size and strap length.

Busting Common Myths about Bra Fittings

Now, let's bust some common myths about bra fittings.

  • Myth #1: You only need a bra fitting for special occasions. Reality check – your breasts deserve VIP treatment every day.

  • Myth #2: Your bra size never changes. Life happens – weight fluctuates, hormones go wild – and your breasts might experience some changes too. Stay on top of your bra game by getting regular fittings and updating your bra collection to ensure it is in tune with your body.


Fun Bra Fitting Facts

Did you know that the average woman owns around six bras but only wears two regularly? It's time to let those neglected bras out of the drawer! Show them so love by addng them into your daily rotation, or if you’re tired of them, or they’re just not fitting your body, donate them to Circadian Intimates to support women in need.


In the grand scheme of self-care, a well-fitted bra might seem like a small detail, but it can make a world of difference. We experience this with our customers every single day. So, ladies, let's raise our glasses (or bras) to the pursuit of comfort, confidence, and the joy of finding that perfect fit.
