A good bra can make you feel like a million dollars. One with a bad fit? Well, that can make you uncomfortable, ruin your silhouette and probably make you cranky too. Which is why bra fitting is so important. After all, underwear is the foundation of your outfit.  

Your breasts goes through about seven different shapes/stages during your lifetime, so it’s super important to get fitted at least once every six months. When looking for a bra, there are four main points you can check to make sure you’ve got the perfect fit, according to La Senza’s bra fitting experts. Scroll through the gallery to uncover them for yourself!

 

Point 1: Straps

The first point to check is the shoulders. You should be able to slide two fingers under the strap, and it definitely shouldn't feel like it's digging into your skin.

 

Point 2: The bra cups

Your breasts should fit comfortably inside the bra cups. As a general rule, when you put your top on, you should see a clean silhouette.

 

Point 3: The centre point between the two cups

 

And speaking of the cups... The centre point between the two cups should sit flush against your body.

 

Point 4: The back band

The band should sit parallel with the centre of the cups.
