Our Favorite Bra Facts

Susan & David Nethero, Founders

• A firm fitting bra is most comfortable as it does not shift on your body with wear and active lifestyles. It supports and evenly distributes the weight from your bust line and results in greater comfort. Begin by fitting firmly on the loosest hook, then move to the second and third hooks as the bra ages and stretches.

• Erroneously, most women rely on the shoulder straps of the bra for supporting the bust line. Only 10% of the support should come from the shoulder straps. The bra band should provide the other 90% of the support.

• Underwires don't have to be uncomfortable. You should not feel the underwire of a well-fitted bra. Most underwire complaints are the result of a cup too shallow or the bra band riding up the back. This forces the under wire to slide forward into the breast tissue, cause weight to impinge on the rib cage or dig into your skin.

• Regarding back fat - The proper position of a bra should be level across the bodice front to back. This will minimize the appearance of soft tissue on the back. It will encase the soft side tissue to prevent show through and increase comfort.

• You can minimize nipple show through by positioning the nipple on the seam of your bra. Plus, a properly fitted bra eliminates shifting and nipple irritation, which can help prevent the nipple from becoming erect.
