I’ve heard that many women are wearing the wrong size bra, why do so many women get it wrong?
Proper fit is the key to comfort and yet studies have shown that 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. The reasons for this vary from the lack of sizing standards among bra brands and limited single brand options to personal fit preferences. So while measuring is a good place to start in the bra fitting process women need to try on different styles, sizes and brands to find the one that works best for them.
No single bra brand offers the perfect fit and comfort for every woman. That’s why we carry 20 bra brands. Each brand offers different benefits to help solve your individual needs.

Are there any special washing instructions for Cool-Jams and Softies “hot flash pajama” products?
Softies sleepwear products combine fashion with function and they are easy to care for. No special treatments, conditioners or washing instructions. No pilling, fading or shrinking. And the moisture-wicking fibers are permanent, spun into the very thread of the fabric.
Cool-Jams sleepwear products are manufactured using an exclusive moisture wicking smart fabric. It’s not a problem to put Cool-Jams in the dryer as long as you do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets which diminish the fabric’s wicking ability. Some customers notice a bit of static when Cool-Jams are placed in the dryer. The dry time in an automatic dryer is 5 minutes or less
What products are recommended for women who suffer from night sweats when sleeping?
Something Comfortable recommends four wonderful lines of nightwear to help women who suffer from night sweats:
- Cool Jams
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.
How do I get rid of those unsightly visible panty lines?
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!
How can I keep my bra straps from showing under my summer tops?
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!
What color bra is best to wear under a white shirt?
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.
How should I launder my bras?
Ideally hand wash your lingerie.
As an alternative to hand washing, our Wacoal bra supplier recommends the following:
- Machine wash a bra inside of a mesh lingerie wash bag
- Fold the cups together, fasten the hooks and eyes, and place the straps and hooks and eyes inside the cups.
- Place the bra in the bag and into the washer.
- Use mild detergent, no additives or bleach.
- Remove from wash bag and dry hanging or flat.
Never place any lingerie in the dryer.
The rule of thumb is that a bra should be washed after every time it is worn to remove body oils, perfumes, moisturizers, self tanners. etc. A bra should be retired after being worn and washed 100 times as it will not offer as much support as needed.
- Always wash bras and panties before you wear them for the first time.
- Have you bra size checked annually
- Replace your bras every six months due to wear from laundering and use.
Why should I alternate bras throughout the week?
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.
My bra is higher in the back than it is in the front. Should I buy a bigger bra?
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.
I worry that my breasts are too high or too low…what is the proper position to wear my bra?
Your breasts should be positioned midway between your shoulders and your elbows and your bra should be level from front to back.
In which position should the hook be fastened when I buy a new bra?
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.
