Do You Need a Professional Bra Fitting?



Do you have gapping in the cup?

If You Do: You are wearing a cup size that is too big for you! It’s time to go down a cup size and give your breasts the support they deserve!

If You Don’t: You might be wearing the proper cup size, however, if you are spilling over the cups, you might want to consider trying a larger size to avoid an uncomfortable fit.




Do your straps keep falling off?

If They Do: If your straps and they are as tight as they can be, but they are still sliding off your shoulders, you could be wearing a bra that is too big, or maybe your bra has lost its elasticity. This is an indicator that it might be time for a new bra. If your shoulders are sloped and you can’t seem to find a bra that stays in place, consider a racerback style.

If They Don’t: This is a sign that your bra is the the right size for you! Don’t forget to keep an eye on the fit, as most bras will lose elasticity within a year.


Do you battle with uncomfortable underwires?

If You Do: This is a sure sign that your cup size is too small. Quality lingerie should not fall apart quickly and if you notice an underwire gone haywire, it might just be time to increase your cup size and maximize comfort.

If You Don’t: You could very well be wearing the right cup size, but check in every so often with any gapping or strap issues that could indicate a sizing issue.


Does the band constantly ride up?

If It Does: This one is tricky! Your bra could either be too big or too small. More often than not, this means that your bra is too big and won’t stay in place. However, if your straps are too tight and your bra is too small, this can have the same effect.

If It Doesn’t: You’re on the right track to a proper fitting bra. Cheers to intimatas that fit like they should!
