Bras Galore

I was recently contacted by Bras Galore to ask if I would like to do an exclusive interview with the founder Danielle Kisby. Now as I have known the pain of finding a good fitting bra over the years I was very keen to get some good bra advice!!

So here is the interview..

1.What are the signs of a good fitting bra?

When you’re wearing a well-fitting bra, the underband will lie comfortably and evenly around your body, with the underwire sitting flat against your chest wall. The cup shouldn’t have any puckering or overspill, and should leave you feeling supported and confident.

2.What are the signs of an ill fitting bra?

An underband that’s too large will feel loose and ride up at the back, while one too small will dig in and feel uncomfortable. If your cup size is too small, you might notice ‘double boobs’ because you’re being squeezed in, and the underwire won’t sit snugly against your ribcage. An oversized cup will pucker or gape away from your chest.
Other problems include too-tight straps digging into the shoulders, and ‘droppy’ boobs resulting from inadequate support.

3.Can you explain the different styles of bra i.e  plunge, balconette?

Padded half-cup bras have wide-set straps that show off your neck and cleavage, and give your boobs fantastic lift.
Moulded bras are seam free for a smooth look, making them great for wearing beneath tight-fitting tops and dresses. Choose a firmer mould for additional lift, or go soft for a natural look.
Balcony bras help enhance your cleavage, and have wide-set straps suited to low-cut tops.
Plunge bras provide relatively little coverage, so are great when you want to reveal your cleavage. Choose light padding for extra support.
Strapless bras have gripper elastic to help keep it in place. It’s recommended that ladies with a D cup or larger choose a three-section version for more support.
Non-wired soft-cup bras provide extra comfort and room for movement, making them great for pregnant women and growing teenagers. 

4. What styles of bra are suited to full on top breasts?

In the right size, most bras are suited to women with full upper breasts. However, bras with tight upper sections, such as balconette styles, are best avoided as they can cut across the fuller part of the bust.

5.What styles of bra are suited to full on bottom breasts?

Women with fuller bottom breasts may find the top of full-coverage cups gape away from the body. Demi-cup or balcony bras are more suitable, and a moulded style will provide lift.

6.What is the correct way to put a bra on?

We recommend leaning forward and allowing your breasts to fall into the cups — a motion we call ‘the swoop’. Next, fasten the bra on the loosest hook before standing up and scooping each breast gently into place, remembering breast tissue beneath the underarm. Make sure you don’t have any skin caught in the underwire or spilling from the sides, and smooth the top of the cup to prevent ‘double boobs’.

Fantastic advice I'm sure you will agree and some very helpful advice on what to look for when buying a bra- so hopefully my bra nightmares should be banished! 

I would also like to say thank you to Danielle for giving up her time to answer some questions.
