Bra Fitting Advice & Video

80% of women are wearing the wrong bra.

So ladies, are you in the right bra? Here are 5 steps to check your bra to find out if you are!

Watch our bra fitting video or read below...

Step 1: Measure the torso

First of all take a tape measure and wrap it round your torso - just underneath your bust. Most women are in a back size that is too big for them and a cup size that is too small.

Step 2: Check the wire

Make sure it goes beyond the breast tissue that sits just underneath the armpit. If you have this digging into your bust at any time the cup is too small. If you have any spillage around the top part of your bra it means the bra is the wrong shape for you. Most women are surprised (normally pleasantly!) when they find they need to go up on a cup!

Step 3: Check the bridge

The bridge of the bra needs to sit flat between your boobs so you are creating separation. If it falls away from the bust it means your back size is too big.

Step 4: Check the strap is firm

Check each strap to make sure they are firm - a lot of women forget to do this and then they find the straps comes off during the day which can be inconvenient and uncomfortable. Your strap needs to be tight so you can only fit 2 fingers underneath it. It should fit nicely around your back and shoulders.

Step 5: Check the back is tight

Make sure the back is nice and firm against the skin. You are fitting your bra to your ribcage and not your flesh so it should be firm.

To guarantee you are wearing the right bra our personal stylists can include this as part of NHJ Style Consultancy's personal shopping service.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
