For the conclusion of this three-part series on Finding Your Perfect Bra, I'm going to offer some tips and tricks that I learned during my years working within the lingerie field.
Let's start with...
The band should sit straight across your back and not be riding up. Often when the latter happens, that's when the straps are too tight - women often adjust their straps to be as tight as possible to help lift the breast or feel supported.
Also, when the straps are too tight, women will end their day with indents on their shoulders, which not only looks painful - can be too.
If this is happening to you, be sure to go back to Part Two: The Styles because you may want to try a different style of bra. Of course, starting from the beginning with a proper fitting is always key.
Many women instinctively put their bra on the middle and more often than not, the tightest hook. But, as the fabric begins to stretch - where do you go from there?
Especially if you are a tightest hook first wearer, at least start on the middle hook, as a few more wears is a few more wears.
This action seems basic but was a game changer for so many - rather than placing the bra right over the breast, this move works to ensure the entire breast is placed within the cup of the bra. You may be surprised at how much fuller you appear!
Even if this doesn't necessarily apply to you, don't be afraid to readjust your breasts in the bra versus readjusting your bra over your breasts.
Next up, let's tackle...
Wash and Care
Also, make sure you give the cups a couple of gentle tugs from all sides just to help remove any wrinkles from the fabric and to help reinforce the shape of the cup itself.
Above all, a proper fitting bra should be comfortable, feel supportive and be enjoyable to wear and not a chore to shop for.

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers.
