There is no shortage of underwear options, either. There is a fit for every need and mood. If you require a thong for an unforgiving skirt, boyshorts for lounging around at home or cheeky panties for your jeans, they are all available. Like bras, panties are sold in solid colors. They are also sold with lace, floral patterns and strappy details. Sometimes a plain pair of panties is best. Other times, you may want to be adventurous, cute or sexy. The good news is that there are panties for all occasions.
Helping other women learn how to measure bra size is part of what got us here. By learning the different shapes, sizes, and measurements of millions women, we created bras with unmatched comfort and support, and put that community data to use in The Original Fit Quiz for women everywhere to find bras in their right size — no fitting rooms, no measuring tape, no sifting through store racks for a bra you might fit into.
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."
Man Repeller deputy editor Haley Nahman, who conducted her own extensive research about the best cotton underwear, told us that this pair from the Gap is her favorite. “Gap describes this underwear as ‘high cut,’ but I beg to differ: It’s the most classic brief shape I’ve ever encountered,” Nahman says. “I discovered them when I was on a maniacal hunt for the best cotton underwear — an endeavor that pitted these against several more expensive (and lauded) options. In the end, Gap won.” She says these are “comfortable, cute, affordable, and perfectly basic,” not to mention 100 percent cotton. “Asking for more would just be greedy.”
If the band is roomy enough for you to be able to comfortably fasten it on the tightest adjustment, try a smaller band, for example if a 32D is too loose, try a 30DD. Remember that the cup size has to be changed when you move to a different band size - for every band you go down, you must go up by one cup size in order for the cups to remain the same capacity and vice versa.

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.

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 hose for years. Recently they have become more challenging to locate. Thankfully I found HerRoom!

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!).


Laura Schubert, co-founder of pubic-hair-oil company Fur, says ODDOBODY’s underwear is “perfect” — especially the brief. “It’s a classic,” she says. “I love a classic brief because they are comfortable and easy to wear. The stitching and fabric ensures that they don’t bunch or have weird lines.” Schubert also likes that the brand’s pieces are made of 100 percent cotton, and that ODDOBODY “promotes speaking comfortably about bodies, health, and identity.”

Performance fibers: Synthetics like polyester and nylon are common in activewear because they wick moisture and dry quickly. For the same reason, these fibers are ideal for underwear, especially if you're working out. Lace underwear and microfiber styles are also usually made from synthetics. Just remember to remove them after sweating; according to Dr. Dweck, "it's important to remove wet exercise clothes as soon as able to avoid infection and irritation in intimate areas."

Know that cup size is not absolute. This is the biggest myth about bra sizes: that a D cup looks the same on every band size, or that having small breasts automatically means you're an A cup. Actually, cup size is proportional to band size — meaning it's dependent on your band measurement. For instance, a 32 D will fill out less volume than a 36 D, but they're both D cups.[1]
Shallow breasts: If your breast tissue is evenly spread over a wider area, with less projection, you probably have a shallow shape. (Another tell-tale sign: having breast tissue near your collarbones despite being relatively small-busted.) Shallow breasts fit best in balconette or demi-cup bras, with a cup that's open on top and cut horizontally. Avoid plunge styles.
Champion bras offer the support you need for working out, running and other vigorous exercise. Lots of colors and styles are all designed to keep you comfortable on the move. Bra sizes 34B-44DDD. A final note: Bra size is not a constant. You probably do not wear the same bra size you wore five years ago. Many factors can affect your bra size, in addition to the brand or style you choose, including weight gain or loss, aging, exercise routine and pregnancy. We recommend you measure your bra size annually.

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.
Here at Bare Necessities, we like to say that when thinking about all the types of women’s underwear, panties are like shoes: there's a pair for every occasion. A well-rounded panty drawer should includes minimal-coverage panties, moderate-coverage panties and full-coverage panties. You can also build your panty wardrobe by fabric and choose among hundreds of styles like lace panties, satin panties and mesh panties.
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.
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.
Either way, it won’t take you long to know whether you’ve got the right or wrong bra size. Good bras are comfortable and supportive. Sure, there are plenty of good bras out there, but on top of comfort and support, the best bras are also available in a wide range of sizes, styles, and designed for versatility – which these days is hard to come by if you don’t know where to look. 

The fiber scientists in the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab are constantly testing undergarments like bras, pantyhose, shapewear, and swimwear both in the lab and with real consumer testers. The team evaluates things like washability, stretch recovery, fit, comfort, and more to find the ones that will feel great and actually last. We also got medical input on finding the best underwear for your health from Dr. Alyssa Dweck, MD, a gynecologist in New York and author of The Complete A to Z for Your V.
