It’s hard to find a bra that fits. But, a good bra will give you confidence.
Listen as bra expert Jenny Altman joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how you can find a good bra.
Here are some tips direct from Jenny:
Getting a bra fitting is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Finding a good bra can seem like a tough task, but let the experts do the hard work for you.
Shop department stores like Nordstrom or Dillard’s for a Chantelle bra. Chantelle is one of the BEST “fit" brands out there. Great quality, great price, size A-H. Department stores often use Chantelle as their fit bra, because the fit is so fantastic for women with small bands to large bands as well as small cups to large cups.
Visit Soma for a great fit experience, they have close to 300 stores nationwide. This brand has the most lovely, knowledgeable salespeople to guide you to the best size and style. Shop bras, sports bras and swim all in one fitting room!
If you can’t get to a Soma store, do a live chat with their customer service team or use their virtual tools to figure out your bra size online.
Wirefree bras are a great option for women who don’t want wire, although modern underwire bras offer amazing technology for comfort and function. Here are a few links for great options:
When your daughter is ready for her first bra, take her somewhere she will feel comfortable. She is a teenager, not a grown woman, so take her to a store like Aerie where the sales girls will be like-minded in age and style.
When you buy your new bra wardrobe, donate your old bras. Remember that these bras may not be perfect for you, but they may be perfect for someone else. Women of domestic abuse benefit from Soma’s large donation two times per year; it’s a very important cause.
