Bra Fitting Smart Tips

Calgary’s Crimson Lingerie – Bras that Fit Your Life

Have you lost or gained weight? Have you stuck with your new exercise regimen? Have your hormones changed for any variety of reasons? Your bra size changes with your life too, and Crimson Lingerie can help you respond to them with the correctly fitted bra.

Here are some major reasons for a new bra fitting:

  • Weight loss or gain changes size & need for support
  • Birth control or HRT can increase breast size up to one cup
  • Pregnancy & nursing affects not only size but firmness
  • Increased upper body strength & exercise can improve uplift
  • Your body changes with health, age or activity level

Tips from Calgary’s Bra Fitting Specialists
Your bra should fit firmly around the body, where 85% of a bra’s support comes from. Buying a bra with a too-large band actually is not comfortable; it rides up and offers little support. The wrong cup size lets you bulge over the bra or gape outside the upper cups.

Your fit depends equally on your back size as on your cup size. A general rule of thumb is that every time you go down one back size, go up one cup size. In other words, a 38C should go to a 36D.

Why keep track of all these details and changes on your own? That’s what a professional bra fitter can do for you. Come in for a fitting at Crimson Lingerie, where we specialize in finding your perfect bra.

Breast Health & Your Wellbeing
The staff of Crimson Lingerie encourages all women to look after their breast and general health too. Learn how to do a proper breast self-exam. Schedule an annual medical checkup that includes a clinical breast examination.

According to research, there is a strong link between increased physical activity and reduced risk for breast cancers. Physical activity also enhances your overall health and wellbeing. So get out there and take a walk, ride a bike or play tennis. And be sure to wear a good sports bra or added support when you are out getting your daily exercise.
