Our stylist Julie will talk you through the correct bra fit and her solutions to those bra fit problems.
Firstly run the tape measure around your body, under the bra at the top of the rib cage.
This will give you your back measurement.
Now take the tape measure across the fullest part of your bust. This will give you your cup size.
According to experts women's breasts change size an average of five times over their life. That means that the bra size you wore when you were twenty will no longer fit you properly...
Bras are complicated things! So here at Damart we've highlighted some of the few areas which might be causing you some problems...
STRAPS ARE TOO LOOSE OR TOO TIGHT?
Both instances are a result of a band that's too big
- try sizing down!
ILL FITTING COATS?
If you're slightly raised on the top or the sides
- try a bigger cup!
ARE THERE GAPS?
You want the cups to hug your curves
- go down a cup!
UNDERWIRE DIGGING IN?
The underwire should sit flat against your rib cage.
If it's digging in - try a bigger band size!

"You shouldn't wash your bra too frequently." Think about it : would you sport the same pair of undies multiple times without washing them? Yeah, we didn't think so either. The same rules apply for bras.
