Finding the Right Bra Size (Maternity Bra Too!)

By  | Sassy Wifestyle

Some of you may think that finding the right bra size isn’t as important. Little did you know that it does! Wearing the perfect fit plays a significant role in our daily lives. As a woman, we need not only pay attention to how we look on the outside but as well as how we carry out under garments.

Now that I am expecting, I have been experiencing back pain and shoulder pain … only to realize that I need to get my bra refitted! That’s the thing, there are numerous issues to arise when wearing the wrong bra size including but not limited to the following:

Neck, Shoulder and Back strain

No one would ever want a stress in their body no matter how severe or light it can be. Some may not even notice that wearing a tight or smaller bra is the culprit behind those shoulder and back ache

Irreversible Damage to Ligaments

As the body age, the ligaments can easily get twisted and damaged. Same goes for the skin and which eventually loosen and begin to experience sagging, most especially if the bra size is B or higher.

While in other instances some have experienced embarrassing situation for having slip ups from wearing a smaller cup size. Aside from preventing these situations from happening, the right bra size can also improve perkiness and lift.

Having beautiful and well-designed brassiere in the right size had been made comfortable with Victoria’s Secret. The shopping assistants provided an easy to follow bra fitting guide in-store. This information is handed out in a small card for anyone who wishes to check if they have the right size or as a guideline in case they plan to make a purchase online. So if you need to check if you’re wearing the right size or cup, I highly suggest visiting their store to get fitted.

Happy shopping!

    I used to dread bra shopping until I found what size I was. It made it so much easier to find the best bra for my body and now I don’t suffer from any more pain or discomfort. This is a great resource.

    It is so important to wear things that are the right size, including bras! Not only for your own personal health and comfort, but for appearance too. I haven’t ever had a fitting but I could use some new bras for sure.

    I really want to get fitted for a bra. I know that I’m probably wearing the wrong sized bra, or at the very least the wrong style.

    I’ve always been very very small. Sometimes I wonder if I even need a bra! lol. I did go to a fitting once and learned everything you mentioned above! You nailed proper bra wearing on the head!

    Indeed! I totally agree that getting the right bra size and fit is important!
    I have tried bras from many places and VS truly does have the best bras.
    I am not a huge fan of them for a few reasons BUT their bras simply ARE the best.
    I have lost a lot of weight and now have a massive amount of VS bras – some barely worn sitting here. I plan to donate them. I need to get over there soon and get refitted and buy new ones!

    I have never had to worry about bra shopping, for the most part, I could buy my bras in the teen department LOL. BUT, this is good advice for the ladies that have much to carry!

    I just had a younger friend begging for help with her bras. She’s an odd size especially because she’s so small. The right bra literally can make or break your day!

    Finding the right bra size is always a reason for celebrations! lol The last time I got a fitting done was 5 years ago. I’m due for another now that I’ve been nursing for 2 years.

    Bra shopping is not a fun experience for me. Ive been measured and it didn’t help me find the right bra size. Now I tend to stick to sports bras because they always fit properly and keep my boobs supported. I hate underwire with a passion.

    I was that girl, I never thought finding the right size bra was important. I have small boobs so it was never a priority, after wearing the wrong size for years I now understand the importance.

    It is important to know your size when it comes to your bra – easier to go shopping and nothing is more comfy than wearing the right size bra. And VS certainly has the nicest bras!
