Have You Had Your Bra Size Checked Lately?

Guilty….Yes, I just found out that I was guilty of wearing the wrong size bra!

Recently, I met Nordstrom fit specialist Dora Lazarus.   It was an eye-popping experience and I guess I’m not alone…statics show that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size. That means YOU could be one of those women!! (I found out I was wearing one size too large around and one size too small in the cup!)

You may also find your breasts are starting to sag. The right bra can make  all the difference in making you look more youthful.

Lazarus can help. She is a fit expert. What started as a temporary job for her  turned into career she has enjoyed for over 19 years!  Obviously I was in good hands and here are some of the tips she explained to me:

  • Most women wear their bras too loose
  • The center gore should lay flat on your chest
  • If your bra rides up in the back you need to go up a cup size
  • If you are falling out of your bra you need a bigger cup. If it dimples you need a smaller cup
  • When you wear a blouse you should have a bra that has a seam in it because those types of bras give you the most support.
  • Life expectancy of a bra is around 6 months. (depending on how many you own and how often you wash them)
  • An average woman will wear 4-5 different bra sizes in her life!
  • It can be fun having all types of styles and colors in your bra wardrobe, including ones with fancy bra straps!

To prove how different bras can do such different things…

Can you believe that this is the same model with just different styles of bras on?

  1. I have adored beautiful bras since college and as a (well) over 40 something, I actually own three drawers full! All of my bras are from Victoria’s Secret. I rotate them so that I don’t wear the same ones again and again, so that they last for a long time. Professionally, I am a potter, and my studio outfits are jeans and tees (I change before going out in public), but I always feel feminine knowing I am wearing sexy lingerie.

  2. Eye popping post! :) 6 months is the lifespan of a bra?! I assume all Nordstrom’s will have a professional fitter? I would love to get help with this. I am routinely very uncomfortable in bras, they feel like they are digging into my ribs. But the next size up in cicumference always feels too loose.
