I will NEVER in my life buy my bras from anywhere BUT this place.
All my life, my shoulders and my back were hurting like a motherfucker, I was bitchy and I kept pulling on my straps since it was riding up.
Until last year... and now, my boobs love me.
And I love them back.
80% of women wear the wrong size bra so, grab a measuring tape and follow these steps to learn your measurements.
Band Size: place your measuring tape just below your breasts and around your body. Once you have determined that measurement, add five to that number. If you get an odd number, round up. That new total represents your band size.
Cup Size: place the measure tape across the fullest part of your bust and around your body. Don’t pull the tape tight, leave it a little loose across your breasts. Subtract this number from the Band Size figure. The difference determines your cup size as follows: Less than 1 inch = AA, 1" = A, 2" = B, 3" = C, 4" = D, 5" = E or DD, 6" = F or DDD, etc.
Calvin klein on bloor is having a nice sale of those half tank top ish bras with no underwire, in black & nude. $12 each, i love those since they support enough & i hate underwire. plus matching seamless undies.
I need to go to that sisters place for real, i think my bra size is fuckered & thats why all the underwires hurt my shoulders so bad..especially VS, those kill!
ps. AGAIN !!! see through non lacy front clasp bra???!!!
ladies, if you haven't already done so, i strongly recommend getting a proper bra fitting. if your bra fits correctly, it should NOT:
- dig into your shoulders or ribcage
- ride up (back strap should be lie horizontally flat against your back, not angled up)
- give you the double boob phenomenon
- leave red marks on your skin
getting a fitting ensures that you are wearing a bra that is the correct size and is COMFORTABLE!
for those in the north / central area of toronto, i recommend melmira bra boutique (yonge street, a few blocks of lawrence). they keep a record of the sizes and styles that you buy, for future reference. however, they are a bit on the pricey side (i think bras start at around $60). they also have a swim suit store, just down the street (where they also fit you!).
spending money on a good, comfortable bra is an investment. if you take proper care of it, it will last a looooong time.
