How to choose the right bra for every type of outfit?
If you want your ensemble to look good, pick a bra that will fit you well.
No matter what you need, the diversity you’ll find at Big Girls Don’t Cry online will help you find something that marries form and function. From sports bras that support your tenacity to non-wired maternity bras to make your pregnancy comfortable — we've got them all.
One of the most comfortable bra styles out there, t-shirt bras work well with all your fitted outfits. While they may vary in terms of padding (lightly or fully padded), cut (full coverage or demi-cut), and support (with or without underwires), the beauty of T-shirt bras lies in their subtlety. With their seamless, comfortable padding, you'll have a beautiful silhouette without visible bra lines. Don't limit yourself to just T-shirts; these bras are also great underneath sheer blouses and tops with thin fabrics.
If you fancy the quintessential shoulder-baring outfit, then a strapless bra will work perfectly for you. While these styles may not lift your bust area as much as strap designs do, they can help you feel confident in dresses with bold and daring designs, such as halter tops, off-the-shoulder, one-shoulder, etc. Our range of strapless bras at Big Girls Don’t Cry Anymore online can help you find a reliable design with an underwire and moulded cups to keep your breasts in place, so you don’t have to worry about the occasional nipple slip. Our catalogue even extends to elegant options such as bustiers that feature longline bras with side boning support around your torso. With the kind of versatility this type of bra offers, you can't afford to overlook them.
Maybe you’re looking for bras that provide ample compression so your bust appears less pronounced? Then a minimiser bra might just be what you need. While these bras help to make your bust area appear smaller, they also shape them in a flattering way, so they look even, balanced, and compact. If you like to wear button-down shirts but have trouble with gaps caused by fabric stretching in the bust area, then a minimiser bra may be very helpful.
We know that the right bra can put you in a better mood when it helps you feel gorgeous and comfortable. This bra's cleavage-enhancing features make it an excellent choice for women who want to wear a low-cut or wide neckline such as V-neck, square neck, or scoop. Balconnet bras give you that sense of confidence you need in a piece of lingerie because of their revealing design.
How to find your correct bra size?
The guidelines found on the bra's label can give you a good estimate for your band size and cup size. It is best to measure yourself before making a purchase, as your body is constantly changing (especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding). You can do this at home by standing in front of a mirror and measuring your breasts. Place the measuring tape around the rib cage beneath the bra band to gauge your band size. To determine your cup size, measure the fullest part of your bust. Make sure that you record both measurements in inches. Now subtract the band size from the cup size. If your band size is 36 inches and your cup size is 40 inches, the difference between the two is 4 inches. This means you have a D cup, and your bra size is 36D.
There are also a few telltale signs when your bra isn’t a snug fit for you. The first is when the band of your bra slides around as you change positions or move around. Straps that slide off your shoulder may also be a sign to go down a band size. If your underwire digs into your breasts or if it rides up during arm movement, you're wearing the wrong size. You can avoid last-minute hassles by taking note of these tips. You can also get measured professionally by a specialist at Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore. We offer a virtual bra fitting service in Australia, so you can have your bra fitted by a qualified Corsetier online or by phone from the comfort of your home.
How to take care of your bras?
- They should be hand washed and air dried to keep them in the best shape.
- Machine washable Bras (always check the label) should be hung on a hook or hanger after washing, never stuffed into a dryer.
- Bras made from a delicate material like lace, or bras with embellishments like beads and sequins, should be hand washed only.
- wash your bras at least once a week. Also, make sure that you store the bras properly in order to prevent damage.
- If you own bras that you’ve not worn for an extended period, you need to have the bands loosened before storing so that they do not become too tight or stretched out.
