Believe it or not, the technique you use to put your bra on can impact how your bra fits your body and how comfortable and supportive the bra will be. But, what is the right way to put on a bra? Simple: “Stoop, swoop, and scoop!” Check out these tips courtesy of Tomima Edmark and Eveden Lingerie Group to find out more details:
The ‘Stoop, Swoop and Scoop’.
1. Stoop: Lean forward from the waist, allowing the breasts to drop into the cups.
2. Swoop: Then, with the opposite hand gently bring the breast tissue forward from the back towards your cleavage.
3. Scooping it in front of, and on top of the under wire into the cup.
You might experience some “fluffing” on top of the cups and between the breasts. Take your two forefingers and separate the breast tissue, smoothing it back into the cups. If you find that you’re still “overflowing”, the cup is too small, and you’ll need a larger cup size (don’t ever be afraid to go up in the cup –even several cup sizes if necessary).
And beware of the most common mistake: Wearing a band too large, and/or cups too small.
When the breasts are lifted to where they should be, the point farthest from the chest wall (the apex) should be halfway between the shoulder and the elbow.
There that was easy and painless, right?
