Most women think they are in the correct bra size. Statistics show otherwise (and so do we).
We've generated a brief quiz to see if you may need a new fitting:
If you answered yes to any of these questions, swing by soon! We are eager to show you how amazing a great fitting bra can be! (No appointments needed)
"I hate bra shopping.” "Why does my bra do this?" "I can never find anything that's comfortable." We've heard and seen it all. If this sounds anything like your bra struggles, we want you to know that we can fix it (high five)!
Many women are not aware of the vast difference in the shapes of breast tissue types. Since all breasts are different, all bras should be too! 70% of our customers have a shallow breast drape, which is completely different from our other customers who have a full-average projection. If you've never heard this bra lingo when bra shopping, you haven't been properly fitted.
So, what does this mean for you? There are specific bra styles that will compliment your breast tissue beautifully. It's like this: peanut butter and jelly go together as a sandwich; well, a full coverage bra goes together with full projected breast, and shallow or lace cut bras go best with a shallow drape breast. If you are wearing a full-coverage T-shirt bra, but you have a shallow breast, this is where gapping happens.
You should always buy and wear a bra on the loosest hook-and-eye as the bra stretches due to normal wear and washing; just adjust as needed.
Never dry or hang your bras to dry—the weight of the water still in your bra will cause your band to stretch faster. Instead, lay them out to dry.
And our favorite: always swoop and scoop. This method allows your tissue to always sit properly and fully in the cup.
When you’re bra shopping in retail stores, most of the above is not explained nor mentioned, which is why so many of us have gone so long highly disliking our bra drawer—we’ve never properly been shown these things. Wearing an ill-fitted bra causes so much frustration, most commonly bra gapping. This is no fun. You start layering clothes to hide the imperfections of your bra.
Stop the silliness! That's where we come to rescue you and bring you to the land of bra love again. Yes, it's true. You can actually love bra shopping. We hope we've enlightened you a bit to come check out The Bra Box in San Antonio, TX and get your bosom buddies looking great again.
