Bra Fitting Tips

Curvy Kate are here to show you in three easy steps what to look for in a perfectly fitted bra!

3 steps to happy boobs

A Firm Favourite

Always ensure that your backband is firm (but not tight) and horizontal for maximum support. If you can pull more than 2 inches away from your back, go down a band size.

A little oomph

Tighten your straps so that they sit firmly in place without digging in. Your straps should offer a little added oomph but not completely lift the bust, that’s your bands job!

Fill your cups

Your bra cups should encapsulate your entire breast tissue with no spillage or gaping.

If you are still a little unsure, do not fear! The Curvy Kate Bra Whisperer is always on hand:

Jargon Buster

Back Band

This is the strap that runs around your back. It does 80% of the work when uplifting your boobs so it’s very important!

Breast Tissue

This just refers to any part of your chest which is classed as ‘boob’.

Central Gore

The bit of the bra in-between the cups. This should touch your chest and sit flat.

Cup

The section of the bra that holds your boobs.

Scoop & Swoop / Jiggle

The act of pulling all your breasts into the cup to ensure the perfect fit.

Two Finger Tension

This refers to the tightness of the straps, you should comfortably be able to fit two fingers under your straps, one on top of the other- no more, no less. They shouldn’t fall down or dig in.

Underwires

These are the wires that run around the underside of the cup. They help to give the bra structure and give maximum support. They should never hurt you or be uncomfortable- if they are you probably need a different size.
