5 Bra myths busted

LET’S FACE IT, YOUR DAY CAN BE RUINED BY AN ILL-FITTING BRA.
EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR WARDROBE, THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION ABOUT WHAT
MAKES FOR A GREAT FIT. HERE WE SORT FACT FROM FICTION.


Myth 1
Support comes from your bra cups and straps

FACT: The most important areas of support come from the cradle (the front part of the band where the cups rest) and the center gore. For a truly comfortable fit, make sure the band fits snugly without feeling too tight, and remember that you can alter the band’s tightness by choosing a different hook fastening.
Your straps should have
to do little work when it comes to supporting you.

Myth 2
The only way to get a lift is with a push-up bra

FACT: Nope, you don’t need to wear a push-up bra to get the lift and cleavage you are looking for.
Miladys’ range includes a variety of styles that give you extra lift and cleavage without added padding.

Myth 3
Underwires are so uncomfortable!

FACT: If you choose the right cup shape and bra size your underwire bra should not feel uncomfortable at all.
The underwire can ride up your breasts or dig into your underarm if the cup size is not right. And a too-loose band means your bra
will move around, which can also lead to underwire discomfort.

 


Myth 4
Your bra size stays the same!

FACT: Different life stages affect the size and shape of your breasts. Weight loss and gain, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and ageing all result in changes. Just a three-kilogram shift in weight will impact the size of your breasts and in turn the size of a correct-fitting bra.

 


Myth 5
Pretty bras can’t give support

FACT: If the gore and cradle give the correct support, your cup can be as pretty as it pleases. At Miladys, our range of bras are meticulously designed to offer the best fit and eliminate any discomfort frequently associated with bra-wearing, all while looking perfectly pretty too! Now that’s what we like to hear!
