e. Ensure the centrepiece is correctly positioned
The centrepiece is the central part of the bra which should sit snugly against your skin.If you can fit a finger underneath it, your bra is not the right size.
f. Ensure your bra is comfortable
Now's the time to check whether the bra keeps all its promises!Lift your arms, wriggle around: the bra should stay firmly in place, not dig in and feel comfortable.
If it slips as you move and your bust is not supported in the cups, meaning you have to reposition it, this means it's not the right size.Try a smaller size.
III. Choose the right style of bra
If you have chosen the right plus size bra, it will feel comfortable all day long.
Backless dresses, halter-neck tops... vary your outfits by choosing a bandeau bra, or add shape to your bust under a lightweight shirt with a spacer moulded cup bra.
The classic underwired bra suits any style and ensures excellent comfort and support.
