The role of the band is to anchor the bra, so it stays put. The band’s snug fit is very important and maximizes comfort.
When determining your size, be sure to relax your arms by your side and breathe normally.
Take the “arms up” test. Put the bra on and lift your arms over your head a few times. If the band stays put, it is a snug fit. If the band shifts when your arms move, it may cause discomfort during the day.
Your band size may be slightly different than what you are used to as our system gives you a REALFIT™ measurement.
The bra band should sit straight across the middle of the back. To maximize comfort, it shouldn’t sit too high on the shoulder blades, or too low on the back. Improper placement can cause discomfort.
Tighten your band, or try a smaller band size. This will eliminate the band from moving up your back. If your band rides up, it will put more pressure on your back and shoulders, causing discomfort.
It is a cup that provides maximum support and coverage for the entire breast.
Try our lightly padded bras. They provide modesty and shape, while also creating a smooth look.
If there is still a significant volume discrepancy between breasts, try using cup inserts to even out the difference.
It is a feminine detail. It is not made of metal alloy, so it won’t go off in airport security.
There is no right or wrong hook, but we recommend starting with the loosest hook and gradually working your way to the tightest hook. This helps achieve desired snugness and increases the longevity of the bra.
Try one band size smaller as having multiple hook options will benefit the bra long-term. This also ensures comfort and anchoring of the bra through the band.
Here are a few quick tips:
We recommend the Full Coverage Lightly Padded Comfort Wire (6701) for fuller, rounder breasts; and the Lightly Padded Comfort Wire (6702) for softer breasts that sit a bit lower.
We recommend the Lightly Padded Comfort Wire (6702) and Non-padded Comfort Wire (6703). They are great for women with sloping or narrow shoulders because of the strap’s elasticity. Additionally, the straps are adjustable so they stay put.
We recommend Non-padded Comfort Wire (6703) and Non-padded Wire-free (6705). There isn’t any padding that your breasts must conform to or fill, so the cups form to your breasts.
A tighter band that is the correct size will result in a more comfortable fit. A loose band could cause shoulder issues, or may cause the bra to move or shift, making for an uncomfortable experience.
The Full Coverage Lightly Padded Comfort Wire (6701) and Non-padded Wire-free (6705) offer the most coverage on the sides for a smoother look.
We highly recommend washing your bra before wearing it. The fabric and seams will soften up, which makes for a very comfortable first wear.
If your breasts are asymmetrical, measure the larger breast.
The arrow should always point up.
Place the REALFIT™ measuring tape level just under breasts. Wrap it around your body where your bra band would sit. It should be snug, but not tight. Use a mirror to ensure the tape is level and hasn’t ridden up or down.
The number in the color block where the tape meets is your measurement.
Most fitting methods are outdated and add 2–4” to your measurement. Our Volumetric Fit System ensures an accurate fit.
No. Use the number on the color block as it is your real band size and will be a better fit.

When you lean forward, your entire breast should fill the cup with the edges against your body. If the cup does not contain your breast, go up a size. If the edges are on your body and you can easily fit fingers in the gaps between the cup and your breast, go down a size.
