Why You Need a Proper Fitting Bra and Where to Find One

Posted on

Did you know that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size?

Most women dread buying bras because they just don’t know what size to look for. 

And even if they knew, some bras just don’t seem to fit well. 34B is too small, but 34C is too big. 

If you think that finding the right bra is simply a hit-and-miss situation, read on because we compiled a list of 3 great (online) stores where you can find your perfect fit.


Why Is Finding a Proper Bra So Important? 

Finding a fitting bra is essential to looking good and feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. Our clothes just don’t seem to fit nicely when our bra isn’t right. 

Importance of a properly fitting bra goes beyond our looks. Correct bra size can reduce neck and back pain and even improve our posture!

If you think that a comfortable and well-fitting bra is worth the hassle but still don’t know where to find one, here are our top 3 picks:




This brand received a lot of (positive) coverage, and rightly so. ThirdLove website lets you fill out a survey and find your fit. Based on your results, the website offers you several options that should suit you perfectly. Mind you, their bras are available in half-cup sizes which could be a game-changer for many women.

If you’re still not convinced, you’re definitely not alone. Many women prefer not to risk buying an inadequate bra online, so ThirdLove offers to ship your bra and let you live in it for 30 days – and you’re only required to pay for the shipping!



Much like ThirdLove, True&Co lets you fill out a survey, i.e. fit quiz to determine not only the correct bra size for you, but also the style. Their survey includes questions such as which colors you like wearing or whether you prefer padding. 

After you fill out the survey, you’ll be presented with top 3 bras for you and get a code for free shipping! If you’re not happy with the first 3 choices the website picked out for you, just scroll down and you’ll find even more options that should fit your personal preferences and physical characteristics. 



Nordstorm’s online bra fit guide offers a lot of helpful advice on how to determine the correct bra size for you, but also encourages its potential customers to come for a professional in-store fitting completely free of charge. 

Nordstorm is also a great pick if you’re trying to find bras at a more approachable price than what ThirdLove’s offering. 



Finding the right bra doesn’t have to be a nightmare if you know how to determine your size. And if you don’t, make use of these great online options designed to help you.
