Having a comfortable, well-fitting bra is essential if you want to avoid health problems and look your best. Ill-fitting bras are notorious for causing back problems, skin irritation, poor posture, deep grooves in the skin, and visible lines and bumps beneath clothing, so finding the right comfortable bra for your body should be a priority. 

But what should you be looking for? Keep reading to discover the top tips for finding the most comfortable bra.

Choose Comfortable Fabric

One of the easiest tips is to choose a bra with a comfortable fabric, especially if you plan to wear that bra in casual, everyday settings. Lacy and beautifully detailed bras are fantastic for special occasions or when you want an extra boost of confidence. Still, for everyday wear, it’s best to stick with natural, breathable fabrics without any detailing that could potentially cause skin irritation.

You should definitely consider cotton bras if you’re looking for a more comfortable fabric. This soft, breathable fabric will give you the support you need without digging into your skin or causing chafing. Cotton t-shirt bras and full-coverage bras are examples of essential everyday bras.

Get a Professional Bra Fitting

The most crucial factor to consider when looking for a comfortable bra is its size. If you’re not wearing the correct size, then your bra will never truly be comfortable or right for your body, no matter how soft the fabric is or how comfy and supportive the design is.

A well-fitting bra should never dig into your breasts or shoulders, constantly need readjustment, arch at the back, have gaps at the tops of the cups, slip off, cause neck, shoulder, or back pain, chafe at your skin, or have wrinkled cups. Before buying a new bra, you should always measure yourself to get the correct size, as this can help you avoid the above problems. 

This will involve measuring around your ribcage just under your breasts, which will give you your band size in inches and also around the fullest part of your breasts (usually around the nipple). To get your cup size, you need to subtract your band size from your bust size and use a conversion chart.

For the best results, you should consider getting a professional bra fitting. The professional can ensure that the measurements are exact, which may be difficult if you try to measure yourself.

Choose the Right Level of Support

Different bra styles will offer varying levels of support. The amount of support you need will depend on both your breast size and your personal preferences.

Generally, women with larger busts will need more supportive bras, such as full-coverage bras and underwired bras. Women with smaller busts may prefer a more minimally supportive bra, such as a wireless bra or bralette, but underwired bras, push-up bras, and padded bras can provide more support and lifting.
