If you are wearing a bra right now, chances are you are wearing the wrong size. Most women only go for a bra fitting just once in their life, so it’s no surprise that 80 percent of Brits are wearing the wrong size.
Getting the measurements wrong can lead to sagging, scarring, and back/neck pain, especially for women with larger breasts. Katie Weir, from Curvy Kate, a lingerie brand specialising in D to K cup sizes, revealed that people should have a bra fitting every six months as it is a “great way to get to know your boobs and what is normal to you”.
She said: “Your everyday, go-to bra will last you up to one year. Always wear your new bra on the loosest hook and tighten it up as you wash and wear. “Most bras have three hooks and eyes so move them up one in every four months to get the same 80 percent support from your band.” Katie has shared her top tips on how to find your perfect bra size at home.
