Determining Size

How tight should my bra band be to ensure a proper fit?

The role of the band is to anchor the entire bra. Anchoring the bra means it will stay in place without shifting during wearing. The band’s snug fit is very important to the proper fitting of a bra and will maximize your comfort. Remember to relax your arms down by your side and breathe normally while determining your band size, as doing so can affect results.

How do I know if my bra band is "snug" enough?

Take the "Arms up" test! Once you have the bra on, lift your arms over your head a few times to test if the band stays in place, or moves. If the band stays in place, it is a snug fit. If the band is shifting when your arms move, this will continue throughout the day and cause discomfort. Please note: your band size may be slightly different that what you are used to measuring. Unlike confusing sizing systems out there, the Jockey® bra measurement has no formula or calculation, it is a real measurement.

Where should the bra band sit on my back?

The band of a bra should always sit straight across the middle of the back. Avoid the band sitting too high up on the shoulder blades, or too low on the back to maximize comfort. Improper placement can cause discomfort.

What do I do if my bra rides up my back when wearing it?

Tighten your band, or try a smaller band size. This will eliminate the band from moving or shifting up your back. If your bra band rides up your back this will put more pressure on your back and shoulders and can cause pain and discomfort.

What is a full coverage cup?

A full coverage cup is exactly what it sounds like- a cup that provides maximum support and coverage for the entire breast.

I am two different cup sizes… now what?

Start by using bra styles with foam cups, as foam cups manage to smooth and shape with modesty. Foam cups also create a smooth finished look. If there is still a significant volume difference between breasts, do not panic! A number of women deal with this issue, so you are not alone. Many use padded cup inserts to help even out the difference.

The Bra Itself

What is this metal piece on the bra?

The metal piece is simply feminine detail added to certain bra styles. The infinity piece is a metal alloy material, and no it will NOT go off while walking through airport security!

Which hook do I use to fasten my bra?

While there is no right or wrong answer for which hook to use first, the best suggestion is to use what will preserve the longevity of your bra. With that in mind, start with the loosest hook and wear until you feel the bra may need additional adjustment over time. Once the bra is worn over an extended amount of time, tightening the hook once more to the middle may benefit the snugness of the band. There is also a third hook option in case tightening of the band is needed even further.

What if I need to start the hook at the tightest setting?

Try one band size smaller so that you can ensure more bra hook tightening and loosening options in the future. Again, this is to ensure comfort and anchoring of the bra through the band. Having multiple hook options can benefit the bra throughout weather conditions, lifestyle changes, etc.

How do I determine that my new Jockeybra is a proper fit?

There are a few quick tips to get you started in the right direction:

  • Adjust the straps accordingly so that they do not slide off your shoulders. They should not be tight, and they should not carry all of the weight of the bust. Straps simply assist in keeping the bra in place.
  • Check the band to make sure it is sitting centered in your back, horizontally.
  • If your bra has a contour resin, ensure that the resin fits under the bust AND encompasses the side of the breast. Avoid the resin hitting breast tissue and adjust the resin to sit behind breast tissue, under the arm.
  • If your bra has a contour resin, check that the bridge of the bra (center material connecting both cups) sits against your chest wall. If the bridge of the bra rides away from the chest wall, try a larger cup or tighten up the band.
  • Do the "arm's test"! Does the band move? Does it stay in place?
  • Put your top on! Look in the mirror and see the difference.
  • How do you feel in the bra? Are you comfortable? How you feel in your bra is the most important and affects your experience.
  • Remember to wash and wear test it. Jockey® bra has a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so there is no risk in trying it out!

How do I know which foam cup bra is right for me?

The Classic contour, 6701, is great for fuller, rounder breasts. The Tailored contour, 6702, is great for softer breast tissue that sits a bit lower.

Which bra is good for people whose straps constantly fall down?

The 6702 and 6703 are great for women with sloping or narrow shoulders because of the elasticity of the straps. They are also adjustable as far as you need to ensure that your straps will not fall. This includes as the bra stretches over time.

I am older and my breasts are no longer as perky as they once were. Which style would be right for me?

Older women have great luck with styles 6703 and 6705. There is no padding that your breasts must conform to and fill. The no padding bra options form better to you.

I have always worn my bras loose and feel a looser band is more comfortable.

A tighter band that is the correct size will be a comfier fit. The bra will fit properly and everything will be in the right place. If your band is too loose it will sit very high on your back and you may begin have shoulder issues. The role of the band is to anchor the bra and its placement. A loose band causes the entire bra to move or shift, making for an uncomfortable experience.

I prefer a bra with a wider band.

We have found that the 6701 and the 6705 have the most coverage on the sides and will give you a smoother look.

I wore my new Jockey Bra for the first time today and it was not as comfortable as I thought it would be.

We highly recommend washing your Jockey Bra before wearing it. The bra fabric and seams soften up a lot in the wash which makes for a very comfortable first wear.

Fit Kit FAQ's

My breasts are different sizes; which do I use to measure, the larger or smaller?

Measure larger breast. Breasts are often not symmetrical.

Which way should the arrow point on the volumetric fit cup?

The arrow should always point up.

How do I measure my band size?

Hold measuring tape level just under breasts, wrap around your body just under your breasts, where the bra band would go. Make sure tape is snug, not tight. Double check in mirror it is level and hasn’t ridden up or down your back. The number in the color block where the tape meets is your measurement.

Why is my band measurement different than other bra’s I already buy?

Most bra fitting methods are outdated, adding 2 to 4 inches to your actual measurement. Our process brings accuracy to your fitting by using your actual measurement to determine your band size.

Should I just order the band size I already buy in other bras?

We do not recommend that. Use the number on the color block. The number on the color block is your real band size and will be a better fit for you when you order the bra. If you are not sure, you can always order 2 to try and return one free of charge. Or visit any Jockey® outlet store for a complimentary fitting.

I fall right on the line in between 2 colors on the tape measure, should I go up or down?

If you happen to fall on the dividing line between sections, consider ordering the 2 closest sizes and return one, free of charge. Or you can order the smaller one and wear on the loosest hook. Or visit one of our Jockey Stores for a complimentary fitting.

How do I know if the fit cup fits me?

Try a couple of different cups. Lean forward first and ensure your entire breast fills the cup. The cup edges should be on your body. If cup does not contain breast, this is spillage, go up a size.

I used the fit cups and that is not bra cup I am looking for, do you have other cups I can use?

Fit cups are a measuring device and do not reflect bra styles or the cut of the fabric; they are used only to measure your volume for an accurate cup size. s
