How do I find a bra that fits? I’ll tell you! Bra fitting is something that I’m pretty passionate about. After working at Victoria’s Secret and Motherhood Maternity fitting bras, I just can’t even when I see a girl walking around with an ill-fitting bra ESPECIALLY if it’s obviously uncomfortable. I want to run up to everyone and tell them, but I have found that complete strangers do not take this very well. I have been following Courtney on instagram (@brafittingsbycourt) and I have been so impressed with her abilities and her amazing body-positive vibe. She’s made bra-fitting her full time gig and is definitely the woman to talk to! I just had to reach out to her and share her expertise with you all! After receiving some questions, I added a few of my own and she was happy to answer them all!
Where do I start? Ideally we’d all love to be fitted by you, but if I’m not located in Utah who should I trust with my boobies? Can I measure myself?
Do you have a favorite general bra brand? Does that change with different sized breasts?
What recommendations do you have for styles vs boobs? When would I choose a balconette over a bralette, etc?
What are sister sizes?
How do I accommodate my breasts as they change through my cycle??
What recommendations do you have when it comes to sports bras?
And here’s a few specific questions that you all submitted and she answered:
I swear I get fitted for bras but THEY NEVER FIT!!! Either I’m too wide, but don’t fill the cup. Too tight, but the cup fits awesome… and then hormones!! Boobs are constantly changing. So Question- where is the compromise? Can there be a compromise besides going braless forever. 🤦🏼♀️
Where is the best place to get fitted and buy good bras for + size women?
So…I’ve been bra measured multiple times, at multiple places. I always come up as a 34 D. But, my breasts are always puffing out the top of my bra, in an un-sexy muffin top fashion. It’s super noticeable under my shirt and I’m over it. Any tips on getting a better bra fit? This happens regardless of the style of bra that I wear, except sports bras (of course).
