Find your perfect bra

The Bra Fit Guide

A great fitting bra can make all the difference in how you look and feel. Perfect fit and support can make you look taller and slimmer. Your clothes will even fit better!

The Perfect Bra Checklist

1.    The Band: the back and front of your bra band should be level and parallel to the floor from the side view. The band should fit firmly around you and not ride up in the back. If the band digs into your skin, feels too tight or uncomfortable, it's too small. If your breasts are falling out from the bottom of the bra and the back band is riding up, the bra is too big for you.

2.    The Cup: your bra cups should fit comfortably around your breasts. If your breasts are spilling out over the neckline or armholes, the cups are too small. If your bra cups look wrinkly, they are too big for you.

3.    The Underwire: the underwire should fit comfortably against your ribcage and under your natural crease line. The best-fitting underwire should encircle your breast nicely and give you a rounded and defined shape. If the underwire is poking into your breast tissue, it's too small. If the underwire end is poking into your armpit, it's too big for you.

4.    The Center Panel: the center panel of the bra should sit firmly against your chest. Wire-free bras and women with full breasts close together may not have the panel sit firmly against the chest, but the fit should still be comfortable.

5.    The Straps: shoulder straps should comfortably rest flatly on the shoulders. They should not fall off your shoulders of cause dents in your shoulders. If your straps fall off the shoulders, the placement of the straps may be too wide. Simply find another style with less wide-set straps. If your cup size is too large, it could also cause your straps to slide down. If your straps are causing dents in your shoulders, you may be need a smaller band size to give you more support.

How to Measure

 

Step #1 - Get Ready

  • Use a flexible fabric or soft plastic tape measure.
  • Wear a non-padded bra with the straps adjusted so your breasts are at a comfortable height.
  • Keep the tape measure snug but not too tight.

Step #2 - Get your BAND size (the number)

  • Wrap the tape measure around your back, under your arms and across the TOP of your chest, above your breasts.
  • If the number is odd- add 1" to get an even number. Example, if the measurement is 35", your band size is 36".
  • You want to be comfortable using the middle hook & eye on the band.

Step #3 - Get your CUP size (the letter)

  • Wrap the tape measure around your back and the fullest part of your breast. Be sure you're not wearing a push- up or padded bra to get accurate measurements. Don't pull too tight!
  • To find your cup size, subtract your band size from this measurement. If the difference is:Difference of CUP measurement - BAND measurement = CUP size

Find your perfect panty

The Panty Fit Guide

  • Let's face it...wearing the wrong panty can leave you feeling uncomfortable all day long. Finding the right style and right fit will eliminate all the unnecessary distraction of ride-ups, tugging and squirming. Best of all, your clothes will look better without the extra bulges and lines.
  • To have the proper panty fit requires getting the correct waist and hip measurements. Then determine what type of silhouette is best for your needs.

The Perfect Panty Checklist

  • The Waistband: the right size waistband and should stay in place and rest comfortably on your middle. If the waistband keeps riding or bunching up, it's probably too big for you. If the waistband digs into your skin, try a larger size.
  • The Panty Legs: panty leg openings should be evenly arched around your legs and not twisting or bunching up. If the binding digs or cause dents to your skin, try another style with a high cut style.
  • The Buttocks: the proper panty should cup and cover your buttocks nicely and evenly. If the leg openings are riding up, try a bigger size.
  • The Crotch: the panty crotch should fit comfortably against your body. If the panty has a front horizontal seam, it should stay visible from the front and not from the back. There should not be any excess fabric in the front or back. Panties with sewn-in cotton gusset are comfortable to wear all day.

The shapewear fit guide

Our shapewear comes in many different styles designed to offer a variety of controlling and enhancing benefits. Whether you want a little light control to smooth those lumps and bumps, or firm control to slim and shape, we have the perfect solution!Find the Perfect Shapewear.

The Perfect Shapewear Checklist

1.    The Waist: the waist of the shapewear should stay in place (at the waist) whether you're sitting, bending, or raising your arms.

2.    The Legs: the leg opening should stay comfortably in place. If the leg binding cuts into your leg, consider buying a size larger or a shaper style with a longer leg length.

3.    The Crotch: the crotch area should be positioned comfortably against your body. If you experience problems walking, it's sitting too low. Just adjust the sides of your shapewear until the crotch area is in the right position.

4.    The Torso: the torso should look smooth all around. If there are bulges coming out over the top of the shapewear, try a high rise waist style. If there are visible wrinkles in the torso area, you may need a shorter length or smaller size.

Finding the Right Control Level for You

We have 3 levels of control: light, medium and firm. The light control smooth out the little lumps and bumps; the medium control shapes and controls targeted areas; the firm control provides the ultimate body shaping & minimizing benefits. You get to decide the level of support that's right for you.

How to Put on Your Shapewear

Putting on your shapewear correctly will help provide comfort all day. Similar to putting on pantyhose, gather up the sides as much as possible, step into the legs and pull up until you reach the area where you want the shaper to start. Slowly un-gather the shapewear as you pull it all the way up. This method should ensure your shapewear to be in the right place. If you experience binding or tightness as you move around, readjust the shaper as needed until comfort is achieved.
