Care & Fit Tips

 

Four simple steps to preserve and care for your delicate lingerie

We recommend hand washing bras about every 2-3 wears with an alcohol free detergent for gentle laundering.

– Step #1

Fill your sink with lukewarm water and add an alcohol free hand washing detergent.

– Step #2

Gently rub the fabric to remove dirt.

– Step #3

Run water through the items until rinse water is clear and no longer soapy.

– Step #4

Gently press the water out of your item, and then lay the item flat on a drying rack.

P.S. Never use an iron directly on silk or synthetics. Instead steam to remove wrinkles.

Common Fit Problems:

Underband

Problem: Your underband is either too tight that it is painful, or it’s riding up and not laying flat across your back!

Solution: If your band rides up your back, you should go down a band size (for example, change from 36 to 34). If you feel that it is uncomfortably tight, try going up one band size (for example, from 34 to 36). Your band should be straight across your back, and you shouldn’t be able to fit more than 2 fingers in it.

Straps

Problem: Your bra straps are either falling off or digging into your shoulders

Solution: It is important not to use your straps to lift your breasts up, because 80% of the support you get from your bra is from the underband. or tighten your straps so that they are comfortable, and check to make sure your band and cup size are correct.

Cups

Problem: You are bulging out of the sides or top of your bra, or there is a gap between your breasts and the fabric of your bra.

Solution: If you are experiencing either of those issues, you need to adjust your cup size. If you are bulging out of the sides/top of your bra, you should go up a cup size (for example, from a B to a C). If you have extra room and the cups of your bra are wrinkly, try going down a size (for example, from a B to a A).

Underwire

Problem: the underwire of your bra is poking you, or riding up.

Solution: If your underwire is touching your breast tissue and you feel uncomfortable, then the cup of your bra is too small and you need to go up a size (for example, from a D to a DD).
