How to look good (nearly) naked. Part 2 - Is the fit right

I’m sure you’ve heard the statistics: “around eighty percent of women are wearing the wrong size bra”, but how important is this?  Well, if you’re wearing the wrong bra you’ll not only get terrible back ache and appalling posture but you’ll not be making the most of your figure either.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve lifted a clients bra straps to reveal a waist that’s been hiding for years!  Wearing the right underwear will not only be more comfortable but can make you look slimmer too.

So are you in the right bra?  How can you tell? 

• Do the cups of your bra ride up when you reach up?

• Do your bra straps constantly fall down?

• Does the strap across your back ride up?

• Does your bust bulge out of the cup?

• Does you bust fill the cup properly?

If any of the above sound familiar, then you’re not wearing the right size.  My advice is to get yourself booked into John Lewis or House of Fraser for a bra fit. Once you know what size bra you need you can start to think about which styles will work best for you but I’ll talk more about that in part 3!
