It is very common for plus-size women to buy the wrong size of bras. Most times they end up with bras that have wider bands and smaller cups. Sometimes this is due to the curvy girl wanting to fit into bras that are too small to appear smaller. But that just won’t work. When shopping, make sure your entire boob fits into the cup. Also, ensure the band holds your waist firmly, with the back of the strap placed beneath your shoulder blades.

Scoop & swoop

This is a technique we are very familiar with. When bra shopping, there are a few things to look out for. For example, you need to ensure the middle of the bra (the gore) touches your breast bone. To make sure you’re getting the right cup size, scoop and swoop. Bend over and scoop your breast into the cup and adjust the breast further by separating them so the gore touches the breast bone. If there is no spillage or run over, then you’re good to go!

Ensure the bra has more than 2 hooks

Being a curvy girl, one thing we know you might struggle with is fluctuating weight gain and loss. One minute you’re here, and the next not anymore. That’s why it is important to buy bras that have at least 2 hooks. This allows for necessary adjustments when you gain or loose weight. The girls should never be left without the right support.

Understand what a good fit feels like

A great fit has a few features you should be on the lookout for. The cups should hold your breasts without bulging, overflowing or digging into your tissue. If any of these occur then the cup is either too big or small or you need to adjust the straps.

The underwire should not rest on your breast but be under the perimeter of the breast and rest on the rib cage.

Your bra straps should never slip off your shoulder. If they do, then the strap is too loose for you to have the support you need. They shouldn’t dig into your shoulder either. Most people think the strap provides the support, but it doesn’t perform that task alone. The straps assist the band to hold your breasts upright.

A good way to test if the strap is too tight is to put 2 fingers in between your shoulder and strap. You should only be able to fit 2 fingers in there. More than 2 means it’s too loose, and less means it’s too tight.
