We've got you covered. Check out our fit tips below and our Size Guide for more details. You can also contact one of our stylists and our style team will help you understand how to find your fit at home.
Think you know your size but wouldn't bet your first born it? We suggest doing a free Home Try-On and trying these 3 sizes in our Base Bra:
- The size you think you are (e.g. 36B)
- A cup size larger (e.g. 36C)
- A band size larger - don't forget to go down a cup size to maintain the same cup size as your original size (e.g. 38A)
Not sure how your current bra is fitting?
When trying on a bra (new or an existing one you have), check these 3 things to find out if it’s the right size:
WILDE FACT: The vast majority (90%) of your bra’s support should come from the backband
When placed on the loosest hook, your backband should fit firmly around you and sit parallel to the floor (i.e. not riding up your back)
- TOO SMALL: If the band is too tight, digs into your flesh or is just uncomfortable, it's too small
- TOO BIG: If it rides up or your boobs are falling out of the bottom (below the underwire), then your band is too large. If your straps are digging into your shoulders your band is likely too big and not giving you the support you need
WILDE TIP: You should start on the loosest hook and as the band stretches over time, tighten it to the 2nd and 3rd hooks. This helps them last longer, too!
2. CUPS AND UNDERWIRE
Your boobs have a natural crease line where the underwire should fit comfortably against your ribcage.
- TOO SMALL: If your boobs are spilling over the cup, under the cup or out the sides, the cup is too small. If the underwire pokes into the sides of your boobs, the cup is too small.
- TOO BIG: If there is a gap between your boob and bra, the cup is too big. If it digs into your armpits, the cup is too big.
WILDE FACT: Only 10% of your bra’s support should come from the straps
Your straps should fit snug against your shoulders without digging in or falling off.
- If your straps are digging into your shoulders you probably need a smaller band to give you more support.
- If your straps are too loose try tightening them as the straps stretch out over time.
WILDE TIP: If you find that the straps are falling off your shoulders even when tightened, that’s typically because your shoulders are narrow relative to your breast size - our bras have a j-hook to allow your bra to become a racerback and the straps to stay put.
