80% of women wear the wrong bra size

Are you one of them?
You might be wearing the
wrong bra size if:
  • the cups wrinkle
  • you spill over the top or side of the cups
  • the center of the bra doesn't rest flat against your breastbone
  • the band rides up your back — if you can fit more than two fingers between the band and your back, it's too loose

Learn proper bra care

Prolong the life of your bras by following some simple tips.

Proper Bra Care
  • Hand wash your bras, especially those that contain an underwire. If you do use a washing machine, select a "delicate" or "hand wash" cycle and fasten the clasps to prevent snagging.
  • Use a mild detergent and lukewarm water. Avoid extreme heat or highly concentrated detergents.
  • Do not put your bra in the dryer. Line drying is best.
  • Keep like colors together in washing.
  • Wash your bra after each use to help reduce discoloring.
