Simple steps to the Perfect Bra Fit
You won’t find a Bravissimo bra fitter using a tape measure because our experience shows that measuring is not the key to getting a great bra fit. Stand by a mirror and start by taking a look at how your bra fits you and then consider whether you need to adjust your back size or cup size following steps 2 and 3.
Throw away your tape measures
The back size relates to how the bra fits around your body. The band around your body provides most of the support so it should be firm but comfortable. It should be horizontal and not ride up at the back at all. If it is loose, or it rides up at the back, try a smaller back size (but remember to increase your cup size). Your bra will stretch with wash and wear, so we recommend a new bra fits you when fastened on the loosest (outside) hook.

The cup size relates to the volume of your boobs. The wires at the front should lie against your breast bone between your boobs. Your boobs should be completely enclosed in the cups and you should have a smooth line where the fabric at the top of the cup meets your bust. If your boobs are bulging at the top of the cups, or the wires are not sitting flat between your boobs, try a larger cup size. If you have spare or wrinkled fabric in the cups, try a smaller cup size.
