Are You Intimidated By Ordering A Bra Online?

Until I actually bought a bra online, I always thought of it as a purchase that had to happen in store. I worried that if I couldn’t try it on right then and there, there was no way I would know if it would fit.

I have found bras that fit me well over and over again, and I buy those exact same bras over and over again. So why did I think that I needed to keep going back to a store to buy what I already know fits (aside from an excuse to go to the mall)? If you already know which bra brands you love, buying online is a synch.

But often times, the attendant just wraps the measuring tape around a few places on your torso and gives you a generic size. However, you and your bra are much more than number.

This approach leaves out important factors that play into a well-fitted bra—factors such as the shape and size of the space between your breasts. By taking the Know Your Breast Bra Finder, I learned that a bra’s gore or center bridge is a key factor for my shape and size. Who knew?! I sure didn’t.

This online bra finder taught me how to combat straps slipping off my narrow shoulders. No one in a department store or lingerie store has ever been able to tell me the what, why, and how of addressing this frustrating bra fit issue. Simply answering a few questions on the Know Your Breast Bra Finder™ led me to bras with leotard backs and center pull straps to keep my bra where it’s supposed to be.

The bra finder not only identified my breast shape, size, and unique issues but it also recommended brands and styles just for me. I felt like I was given a personalized experience unlike any I’ve had. And when all else fails, there’s a return policy to accommodate any fitting mishaps.

Do you have any online bra shopping tips to share? Have you used the bra finder to help?
