Buying a strapless bra can be a daunting task, especially if you do not know your bra size. Tackle this subject by confirming your bra size first and foremost. When buying your bra, keep in mind the outfit you will be wearing with the bra. Also, keep in mind that a strapless bra that provides adequate support and stability is priceless!

1.Measuring Your Bust Size

If you do not want to or do not have the time to calculate your own bra size, most lingerie stores can calculate it for you. Visit a lingerie store at your nearest mall, outlet, or shopping center. They can professionally measure your bra size for you.

2.Picking the Right Bra

Aim for quality when selecting your bra. You want a bra that will support your bust and make you feel comfortable. Features that provide support and stability are:

  • Silicone lining: look for silicone beading that follows the contour of the cups. Silicone lining is “self-adhesive” and will help the bra stick to your body.
  • Elastic bands: in non-corset style bras, the wide band of elastic that runs under the bust is the main source of support. If you have a big bust, get a bra with a wider band for more support.
  • Underwire: underwire provides shape and support. A bra whose underwire pokes into the breast is too small, while a bra whose underwire pokes into the armpit is too big.
  • Boning: boning provides a lot of support and is a great choice for full-figured women. A high-quality bustier or corset will have steel-wire boning as opposed to plastic or PVC.

3.Fitting the Bra

 While choosing your strapless bras, choose at least one bra that is one band size smaller than your original measurement. Because a strapless bra does not have straps, you need to compensate for the lost support. You can compensate for this by having a tighter fitting bra, but it should not be so tight that it is uncomfortable.

4.Bring a similar top or pattern to shop with

You can ensure that the bra you choose fits the top or dress that you will be wearing it by making a pattern or bringing a similar top with you.You can make a pattern by drawing the outline of the top or dress that you will be wearing with a pencil on a tank top you have at home. When you are in the fitting room, try on the bra over the tank top with the pencil marks. If the bra goes over the boundaries made by the marks, then that bra will not work. You can also bring a top or dress that is similar to the one that you will be wearing. Try it on with the bras that you have picked out to ensure that everything is covered.
