3 Steps To A Fabulous Bra Fit!
These 3 points working together in the “body” of the bra will lift and support the breast tissue. Too often we depend on the straps alone to do the heavy lifting, but straps aren’t meant to do it all, they’re there just to help. Remember, a strapless bra has to do it all without the straps.

Putting your bra on correctly:
This is just as important as finding the right size and style. If you’re not getting into your bra properly, you might be choosing the wrong size, and you’ll never experience the ultimate lift and support, and most importantly, the comfort a bra should provide.
Here’s how: We call it ‘Stoop, Swoop and Scoop’.
You might experience some “fluffing” on top of the cups and between the breasts. Take your two forefingers and separate the breast tissue, smoothing it back into the cups. If you find that you’re still “overflowing”, the cup is too small, and you’ll need a larger cup size (don’t ever be afraid to go up in the cup –even several cup sizes if necessary).
And beware of the most common mistake: Wearing a band too large, and/or cups too small.
When the breasts are lifted to where they should be, the point farthest from the chest wall (the apex) should be halfway between the shoulder and the elbow.
