Getting fit for a bra is not only about discovering your correct size, it’s about learning which styles and brands suit your body shape and discovering what will give you the best support and provide the most comfort.
All brands run differently, all women run differently (thank goodness!), and some people prefer different silhouettes. Our lingerie specialists are trained to help you find the perfect fit.

- We may want to see you in the bra you are wearing. This will help us show you where improvements can be made
- We will bring in different brands and styles for you to try and together we will find the best-fitting and most comfortable bra

Other things to Consider:
Shape & Silhouette
Seamed bras give more lift and definition. Seamless bras and t-shirt bras are great for wearing under thinner materials or tighter clothes.
Some brands are designed with smaller breasts in mind while others are made for fuller busts. While shopping on our site or in our store, we can advise you how each brand fits.
Bras have ‘sister sizes’. These are sizes that will fit similarly to your size. You can use the chart below to find your sister sizes. Find your size and move one direction left or right. This size bra could work for you too.
