Buying a bra can be very frustrating.  Most women don't actually know what size they need, and even if they do, sizes vary from bra to bra. Also different styles can be better suited for different shapes of breasts.

When you get an in store bra fitting at Something Comfortable, we will explain exactly how the bra should fit and make sure we bring you a size and style that is right for you.

 

You should never wear an uncomfortable bra!  We will help you choose from our large selection of styles and sizes, and can find you a bra that will be comfortable for you.

Being fit for a bra is the best way to ensure the bra you choose will fit you properly.

Surprisingly 80% of women are indeed wearing the wrong size bra! There are many reasons why this happens.Here are the main reasons:

  • There is a misconception about bra sizes. People think that D is a big size and, therefore, DD is huge - but this is not necessarily true. Fifty per cent of women are a size D or bigger.
  • The size of the cup is in relation to the back size. A 36D is a cup bigger then a 34D. There are more than 100 sizes of bras.
  • Most women don't know how a bra should fit. There are special tricks to knowing if your bra is fitting properly. Many women don't know these tricks and don't realize that they could be much more comfortable wearing the correct size. Something Comfortable offers free bra fitting services.
  • Many women's bodies change size frequently. It is likely that bra sizes will change if your dress size changes either up or down.
  • Many stores carry limited sizes of bras, eliminating the choice of getting the right size for most women. This is particularly true when the women don't know that what they are getting is wrong. Something comfortable carries a wide selection of styles and sizes.

Simply wash on delicate cycle as you would other fine washables, in cold water, AVOID the use of any fabric softener, as it will negate the fabric's moisture-wicking properties; line dry or dry on delicate cycle in dryer (again, no fabric softener sheets!)

Something Comfortable recommends four wonderful lines of nightwear to help women who suffer from night sweats:  

All of these products work to wick away heat and moisture so that women can sleep more comfortable throughout the night without interruption to their sleep.

On Gossamer has developed a panty with a liner sewn in called the Luxury Liner.  The liner is extra absorbent and protects your clothing from moisture and stains.  It’s a very comfortable panty that wicks away moisture and keeps stains private!  Your choice of bikinis or thongs for $19.00.

Try wearing totally seamless underwear. We recommend Fashion First Aid Seamless Thongs and Boyshorts by a company called The Useful Chick Stuff. They are seam free panties and are virtually invisible. More like wearing nothing at all, just a tad more demure.  Did I hear someone say Underwhere?

“Underwhere?” is available in two styles - Thong and Boyshort.

We also love the Hanky Panky signature lace one size thongs in original and low rise. Many fun colors to choose from and they are soooo comfortable!

One device that works really well is the Strapper.  It was designed to keep your straps from being visible when wearing sleeveless tops and dresses, tanks and racer back tops.  An added bonus of this product is that it lifts and supports you and keeps your straps from falling off your shoulders.  Order a 3 pack right for only $15.00!

A common mistake that many women make is to wear a white bra under a white shirt or tee. A white bra will be clearly obvious under a white shirt. If you don't want your bra to show, you should wear a color that matches your skin color or is a little darker.  If you have darker skin, a dark brown or black one works best. A white bra will only work if you are very pale otherwise you will be able to see the contrast from skin to bra through the white fabric.

The best method for washing contour and padded bras is to use a product like the BraBaby to protect the shape when washing.  We offer a 2 pack for only $22.00.

Wash bras in cold water using lingerie wash or a very mild soap.  We recommend Soak lingerie wash which can be found under accessories on this website.

Bras may be machine washed if you follow these simple tips:

  • Hook bras and fold in half
  • Place bras in a mesh laundry bag
  • Set on gentle cycle
  • Air dry …never put bras in the dryer

You should never wear the same bra two days in a row because fibers need a full 24 hours rest to retain their original shape.

Bras are often uncomfortable in the back because they are too loose and move around. Generally women think that if something feels uncomfortable we need to go to a larger size, but it is often the opposite case with bras. A bra may feel uncomfortable in the back because it is too big and therefore not supportive enough to hold the cups to the body. The breasts will pull the bra down in the front which will pull the back up and the straps may even fall down. If your bra is higher in the back than it is in the front, it is likely you actually need a smaller band size.

Your breasts should be positioned midway between your shoulders and your elbows and your bra should be level from front to back.

It should be comfortable in the loosest hook so that when the bra stretches with age you can move it to the second and third hook to retain the proper lift and fit. If a new bra fits only on the tightest hook you should go with a smaller band size.

We recommend John Festa’s corsets which have a built in zipper on the side.  The first time you wear one ask someone to help you lace the back from top to center and then bottom to center. The corset should fit snugly and close to the body minimizing the waist, while feeling comfortable. Once the lacing is fitted just right for you, simply use the zipper to get in and out yourself!

Also consider a corset/camisole by Arianne.  These beautiful camisole corsets have the appearance of a corset with boning but with the comfort of an extraordinary camisole… you get the best of both worlds. Theses camisole corests are sexy and fashionable whether worn in the bedroom or out on the town paired with your favorite jeans.
