As lingerie brands and retailers around the world size their bras in a variety of ways, it can be pretty confusing and difficult to work out which size you should order.
At Bravissimo, we use UK sizing, so we offer bras in a 28-40 back sizes and in a D, DD, E, F, FF, G, GG, H, HH, J, JJ, K, KK and L cup. In the UK where we have been fitting women for more than 20 years, our most popular sizes are FF, G and GG cups. These cup sizes may sound big if you’ve always thought that the biggest size you could get was a DD cup, but they really aren’t – they are totally normal.
Because the availability of bras in bigger cup sizes is so limited outside of the UK, many women have got used to wearing the wrong size, often wearing bras that are too big in the back and too small in the cup.
As so much of the support in a bra comes from the back band, wearing a bra that is too big in the back won’t give you good support, may well feel uncomfortable and really won’t make the most of your boobs or your fabulous figure. Getting the right fit can make such a huge difference not only to the way you look but the way you feel about yourself.
We are really experienced at giving not just fitting advice, but also advice about which styles might suit your individual shape, over the phone so if you need any help, please give us a call toll-free on 1 877 826 3857. You can chat with us via text, but we find talking to you is the best way to do it so if you can, please call us – we’re a friendly bunch! We are all real women (there are no bots at Bravissimo!) who regularly fit in our stores and genuinely know the styles that we offer and how they work on different boob and body shapes. Many of us have big boobs ourselves and there is nothing we like more than to help you look and feel fantastic!
IF YOUR BRA IS UNCOMFORTABLE, PLEASE STOP WEARING IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS IT COULD CAUSE INJURY.
We advise what we believe to be a good fit, but only you can know if your bra feels comfortable. If your bra is uncomfortable, please get in touch with us so we can help.
