Top tips for a better fitting bra
The very best way to get a perfect fit is to be professionally fitted. At the Guilt Lingerie shop in Petworth our fully trained experts will gently guide you through the process in a discreet and comfortable environment, to help you achieve the confidence and comfort only a beautiful well-fitting bra can give.
If you cannot come to our shop here is a simple guide to help you feel comfortable and look beautiful in your bra.
Fasten your bra using the middle hook(s). If the back is too tight, try a bra with a bigger back size and a smaller cup. For example, if a 34D bra is too small, try a 36C.
Position the midriff band so that the front of your bra is at the same height as the back. Make sure the separator is centred relative to your breasts.
Use the adjustment rings to find the right strap length. Straps that are too tight will crush your bust while straps that are too loose will not flatter the neckline.
Adjust your bust in the bra by leaning slightly forward. The underwires should go around the breasts. Use your hand to position the nipple under the cross-cup seam, at the top of the dart or in the centre of the cup, depending on the bra style. It is worth noting that although you may be one size in one brand you might be a different size in another.

This moulded cup bra is strapless and is ideal for evening wear and bridal. The cups give an extra lift.
This soft cup bra has no wire. It is also available with a moulded cup.
This soft cup bra suits the fuller cup and gives full support and maximum comfort.
This soft cup bra is for the fuller cup sizes that do not want too much coverage. It gives a very feminine look and can be worn with lower cut dresses.
This soft cup bra suits cup sizes B to E and is cut low but gives maximum lift. Sometimes it comes half padded.
This moulded bra is ideal for wearing with tee shirts and gives a smooth outline whilst allowing the bust to be gently shaped.
