Ever wondered if your bra fits? 80% of women are doing it wrong so here are our top tips!
Curvy Kate are the champions of bra fitting! We have some wiggles, jiggles, swoops and scoops to help you get into your bra correctly. Wearing a perfectly fitted bra can improve you posture, reduce back and neck pain, transform your wardrobe and create a more positive relationship with your boobs. Take a look at this amazing bra fit transformation by Curvy Kate's Bra Whisperer! 🙌
This gorgeous woman KNEW she was wearing the wrong bra size but just didn't find time in her busy life of uni and work to go for a bra fitting! She came to us wearing a size 40D, from the image above we can see that the band of the bra is FAR too big, in fact it is sitting away from her body. The lack of support from her band is meaning that her bust has a 'sloping' look.
When you are wearing a band size too big, it can often mean that your cup is too small and that your wires will not reach right around all of your breast tissue. In this case, the cup can gape and the wires dig in which is REALLY annoying.
We can see from the image above that when wearing a t shirt, the bra really isn't offering any support and her posture is being affected. When your band isn't doing any work, your shoulder take all of the strain leading to back and neck ache.
🥁 Drum roll please...
Our Bra Whisperer transformed this bra size from a 40D to a 34FF! We fitted her in our best selling Victory Balcony Bra with Side Support as this is a great bra to start your Curvy Kate collection with. As you can see the Victory bra has lifted her breast tissue and put some fabulous fullness into her top cup. The band of the Victory bra sits firm meaning it is doing 80% of the boob lifting, taking that stress of the straps! Her posture is already looking better too! The Victory balcony bra offers great forward projection and uplift thanks to our unique 'Upfront Technology' and lined mesh cups ensure great shape under clothing. Now, see the magic...
We can't get enough of this transformation, but don't forget babes, there is much more to bra fitting than just putting on a bra! To ensure that all of your breast tissue is encapsulated and your bra sits perfectly we highly recommend doing the 'Scoop and Swoop' with every wear. Read all about it:
