As soft as can be - What to look out for when buying a bra?

Most girls generally think about colours and cuteness when they go buy lingerie, while style is something you need, comfort is a factor that you deserve. While we’ve gone on and on about the right size and the perfect fit in the past, today, we’re telling you what to keep in mind before you buy your next bra. When it’s time for your next big purchase, you might want to add these items to your checklist.

What to look out for when buying a bra?

Say Yes to the Wire… or No

While underwire bras are great for additional support, should you be wearing them ALL the time? Remember to have non-underwire options in your drawer, too, in order to protect your body from pressure cysts, abrasions, infections, and contact or irritant dermatitis.

If you're the kinds who NEEDS to sleep in a bra then make sure it's non-wired bra. You'll still have the comfort and support you crave, minus the wire.

Let Them Breathe

Remember to always check to see what material your bra is made of. Try to have a more breathable option in your drawer because sweat can’t evaporate from fabrics that don’t breathe. Natural, breathable fabrics like cotton are your best bet. Check out our new range of the Most Comfortable Bras.

It Fits

You might think it’s super annoying to be asked by a professional to get fitted every time you walk into a lingerie store, but the truth is that breast sizes do change over the course of a woman’s life. And the perfect fit doesn't just make you look nice, it’s great for your health too.

Wearing a bra that is improperly fitted can cause friction and high sensitivity. Remember to get fitted and know the right size. Check out our bra fit calculator.


Make sure the straps are not slipping down your shoulders all the time nor are they digging into your shoulder leaving red marks.
