I'm sure most of us have been guilty of wearing the wrong size bra and some of you may still be in an unsuitable size. I mean a staggering 80% of British women are cupping their boobs incorrectly.
I raise my hands up and say that for years I was in a back size 2 sizes too big with cups 2 sizes too small until I got properly measured and was given an understanding of how exactly a bra should fit and feel. From then on, my posture changed and my body confidence increased just by the mere fact that I no longer had quad-boobs or shoulder pain... and no more hourly undercover re-adjustments of my bra and boobs. Phew!
Although more women than ever are being fitted many are still unsure of their correct bra size as fitting services on the high street can offer a mixed bag of advice which is why we've put together a simple step-by-step guide to help you overcome those common bra fitting mistakes.

Remember these Top Tips:
Tighten up your straps so that two fingers can fit underneath. Only 20% of the support should come from the straps.
Always start with the back band on the loosest hook. You can tighten it with wash and wear over the months that follow.
Lean forward and give your boobs a jiggle holding the point where your straps meet the cup.
Always check your wires too! Right from your underarm, all the way around and in between your boobs the under wire needs to sit flat. Give all these tips a go and notice the difference it makes to your boobs, your posture and even your outfits!
