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.
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.
Panties in the modest coverage category are some of the most popular panties among women. Focused on comfort, hi-cut briefs and hipsters offer moderate to full coverage while also being nearly invisible under mid-rise pants and sometimes they even offer a bit of tummy shaping! If you like thongs but are looking for a little more coverage, one of the other best style of modest coverage panties are tangas: a comfortable transition between a bikini and a thong.
Thong: Giving you the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes. According to Dr. Dweck, they're totally safe as long as they're not too tight. "The right thong with a cotton crotch and non-chafing 'G-string' that fits well is not a problem for those who prefer them," she advises.
A fitted t-shirt will show up any bulges from cups which are too small, and likewise a moulded bra that is not filled out will show lines at the bust where the edge of the cups are visible. It's also useful to make sure that the colour of your bra is not showing through a thin or light coloured top - if you need to make your bra invisible, go for seamless cups which match your own skin colour rather than the colour of your top.

Lena Dunham told us that she loves “a slightly baggy, but fun underpant,” and called out these Joe Boxer string bikinis as ones that fit the bill. “Joe Boxer was cool and hip when I was 12, and now it’s a Kmart property. Leaving aside the ethical implications of that, I fucking love the underwear,” Dunham says. She told us she orders the bikinis in a large to get her preferred loose fit. “A medium might be more supportive of my butt, but this gives me a little tail,” she says. “A six-pack of three solids and three patterns for me is the perfect balance.”
Cora Harrington (a.k.a. the Lingerie Addict), the author of In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie, says that if you want something you can easily find at your local department store, Natori’s Girl Briefs are her favorite “mainstream” underwear (we heard about Harrington’s more obscure picks, too, which are further down this list). “They’re cute. They’re comfy. The Pima cotton means they’re supersoft,” she explains. “Nordstrom includes them in their annual anniversary sale, and my secret tip is to buy discontinued colorways … after all, no one cares what color your underwear is!” Dolley Frearson, co-founder and creative director of High Fashion Home, is another fan of the Natori Girl Briefs. “For everyday underwear, I need it to feel comfortable and breathable,” she says. “I also need it to appear smooth, and not pinch my skin in any place or ride up.” For Frearson, the Natori briefs check all of those boxes. “They will eventually replace almost all of your underwear in your drawer,” she promises.

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.
Determining the correct – and most current – measurements for your band, bust, and cup will make it SO much easier for you to find bras that fit right, and fit you, no matter where you get your bras. Plus, with those measurements you’ll finally get confirmation to toss out or donate those bras in your drawer that you’ve been keeping just to keep (bra, bye!).
