Look For The Band
Now when you know your correct bra size another important part is picking the right bra. The band of the bra is really very important. Most of the support is provided by the band while the cups are there to just hold the breasts.
There are basically two types of band that usually comes in a bra.
1. Normal Band 2. Underwire
While the majority of you refrain from using the bra that comes with an underwire, but these types of bra usually provide the best support to the bust. And, thus you should always look for the bras that come with underwire.
The Band Should Not be Loose Or Tight
When you know the right band size and band type, another thing related to the band that you should know is the fit. When you’re checking the fit of the bra make sure the band is not too tight or not too loose.
If the band is loose it will make your straps slip thus giving the most uncomfortable fit. The band should be comfortable neither loose nor tight.
Right Way To Put On Bra While Checking The Fit
When you check the fit of the bra, make sure you always fasten the bra at the extreme loop. The band of the bra tends to become loose afterward. So, to know the best fit make sure you fasten both the ends at the extreme loops or to the loop next to one you usually prefer.
