You should not be able to stick a finger under the center gore. It should lie flat against your chest.Which brand is best for you? Bra sizing DOES vary by brand. The descriptions below may help you select the right brands for you. A smaller-busted woman may need to go down a size to fit well in a brand designed mainly for larger women. A large-busted woman may need to go up a size to fit well in a brand designed mainly for smaller-busted women.

Avoid stores that carry a limited range. A fitter at one of these shops might try to incorrectly sell you a size that they have on-hand, instead of your true size. Before you commit to a fitting, make sure the store carries smaller band sizes (such as 28 and 30) and larger cups (DDD and up). Good choices in the US include department stores like Nordstrom and Dillard's.
The cups should look full and smooth, without spillage. If the cups look kind of empty, you need a smaller cup size. If you are seeing spillage on the sides or the top of the cups, you may need a larger cup size or a bra designed with more cup coverage or higher sides. If you wear an underwire bra, the underwire should be flat against your chest without pinching anywhere.

Bra size is notoriously fickle between different lingerie brands; a C-cup at one store can easily be a D-cup at another, and some bra sizes can grow and shrink (especially in band size) over the course of a day or between washings. The best option is to know your bra size by taking bust measurements using these simple measuring instructions, which will ensure a perfect fit in band and in cup—and can even help you find the right amount of support.
What Our Expert Does: "I always tell people never to skimp on bras, especially if they need more support. If you have a fuller bust, say a C cup or larger, you should definitely invest in a good bra that gives support and lift. When you have a good quality bra that fits right, it changes your whole profile. It may cost a little more, but a good bra can make a world of difference."
If the underwires are pressing painfully against your breastbone at the centre front you may need a smaller cup size or you could try a plunge style with a lower centre front (this is more likely to be an issue with the cups than the band.) Or you might just be human, and it's the shaping of your ribcage. In that case, wait for the bra to be "broken in" and see how it fits then, or go with the lower centre front.

I'm a guy and I live in Florida. Exposure to the sun has given me some serious leg blemishes...I talked to my Doctor and she suggested that I try wearing Thigh High Stockings to soften the look of the skin blemishes. I bought several pair of Q2 Nude and they look, and feel awesome..I have received several positive comments from ladies who say my legs look rather sexy....they knew I was wearing stockings.
Lisa Buhler, founder of Lisa Says Gah, told us that she’s a big fan of Swiss lingerie brand Hanro for its “luxe fabrics and classic designs.” (The brand also came up when we talked to some cool and stylish women about their favorite bathrobes.) If the price of the Hanro bikini is a little steep, Buhler suggests Everlane’s underwear, which she says has a similar design to Hanro at a fraction of the price.

If the underwires are pressing painfully against your breastbone at the centre front you may need a smaller cup size or you could try a plunge style with a lower centre front (this is more likely to be an issue with the cups than the band.) Or you might just be human, and it's the shaping of your ribcage. In that case, wait for the bra to be "broken in" and see how it fits then, or go with the lower centre front.

You’ll be contained, comfortable, confident and in control of your day. The perfect fit frees you up to handle anything; it lets you do you.

For something a little more colorful, take a note from Harrington, who says her “favorite underwear brand of all time is Egretta Garzetta.” She told us that because of a nerve condition, her everyday underwear has to be made from natural fibers, and the brand’s cotton and viscose briefs have been an “absolute godsend.” And although the price is higher than, say, a pair from the Gap, the quality of these is also very high, according to Harrington. “Seriously, this is the highest-quality underwear I own,” she says. “I first purchased from this brand back in 2014, and my underwear is still holding up and looking great; no fraying, no holes, just pure cotton softness.”

“I love Pansy for underwear,” says Alyssa Lau, the founder of sustainability-focused e-retailer New Classics Studios.

I am delighted to find Shadowline again. I used to purchase it at a department store. When they discontinued it, I was disappointed. However, I am completely satisfied with my orders from herroom.com. They arrive in a timely manner and are packaged well. So far, I am very pleased with the product and the price. I look forward to their occasional special offers.
Many bra companies like to pretend that sub-28 sizes do not exist. However, many women really do wear bra bands sized 20, 22, 24, and 26. Some even smaller. Keep in mind, the material will stretch. Unfortunately, because the bra companies like to pretend that smaller bands do not exist since it is more profitable to them, it is almost impossible to find those sizes. Your best bets are to get a bra altered, which may not work because of the wires and how they might then dig in to your body. If you have a bra tailored, get a bra that is up one band size and down two cup sizes. As band and cups are proportionate to one another, a cup on a larger band will have larger wires. This is why you will want the smaller cups, for the smaller wires. *Cup sizes above D tend to vary significantly between manufacturers, so check with the retailer or look for customer reviews before you buy online.

Learning how to measure bra size can feel uncomfortable, but knowing your measurements—and keeping them written in a note on your phone or somewhere else that’s accessible when the bra-shopping mood strikes—will make bra shopping so much easier, especially for online shoppers. Equipment is minimal. All you need is a tape measure and a little free time, and you’ll have saved yourself a lot of bra-shopping misery. Best of all, knowing how to measure your bust will make adjusting to changes in your breasts (from losing or gaining weight, hormone fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and more) so much less stressful.
I have been wearing these for years, They mold to your body feels like your not wearing them at all very comfortable all day long. Every time they come out with new colors and patterns I purchase them if you wait you lose out. They wash and dry very well and hold up these last a long time and hold their shape. I hope they never discontinue these. I have tried other brands and always came back to the Bali skimp skamp 2633

If you want to splurge, Harrington recommends a pair of silk tap shorts, like this pair from Harlow & Fox. “Silk is the ultimate lingerie fiber — cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and with a luxurious feel against the skin,” she says. “If you can afford silk, buy silk.” Harrington calls these her favorite elegant silk pair, and “the definition of everyday indulgence.“

One of our staff testers had been wearing a 38B for years. So you can imagine her surprise when a professional fitter broke the news to her that she was actually a 36C. "Unbelievable!" the staffer exclaimed. "But you know what? The 36C feels much better — more supportive and comfortable." Her advice? Get thee to a professional fitter; nearly every department store has one. Or, if you're strapped for time, at least check your measurements yourself. Keep in mind, though, that bras are like shoes: No two fit the same. You have to try them on.
