Which type of bra is right for me?

There are two breast shapes that require a different cup shape:

Apple shape:
Bend slightly forward and look at the bottom of the breasts relative to the top:

Are your breasts round at the bottom, about the same width at the bottom as at the top?
Then we speak of an apple shape and you can choose the best preformed padded cup.

Pear shape:
Bend slightly forward and look at the bottom of the breasts in relation to the top:

Are your breasts pointed at the bottom, at the bottom significantly narrower than at the top?
Then we speak of a pear shape and it is best to choose one of the bra models below:

1) a Balconette bra in cup sizes BCDE: this brings the breasts up and together for fuller cleavage. The cups are cut slightly lower (1/2 cup) so that more of the top of the breasts are shown.

2) a 3-part full cup bra with 'deep' cup and partial cup seam in sizes DEFG.
This bra has a deep cup and brings the breasts together.

Try on at home, what should I pay attention to?
 Click here where you should pay attention to

1.How can I tell if a bra fits properly? 

  • The bra straps are tight enough but do not pinch.
  • The shoulder straps stay on the shoulders, they do not fall down.
  • The cups fit nicely around the breasts, they do not wrinkle and no 'bumps' are visible.
  • When you put on the sizing strap and fasten it-yet without the straps over the shoulders and the breasts are already almost snug in the cups, that's a very good sign:) 

2. In my opinion, the bra is not comfortable, why could it be?

The circumference band on my back is higher than the front:
Then the circumference band is too wide. Tighten the band a bit with the hooks

Below the circumference band I see red stripes:
Then the circumference band is too tight; this may be approx. 2-5 cm narrower than the measured undersize.

I see bumps under my armpit above the girth band:
Then the girth band is too tight; this may be 2 - 5 cm narrower than the measured undersize.

The top edge of the cups is open:
Then the cups are too big

The breasts protrude from the cups so that you see '4 bumps':
Then the cups are too small

The breasts protrude on the side of the cups so that you can see bumps there:
Then the underwires on the side of your bra are on your chest so that your breasts are on the side over your bra. Then the cups are too small.

The underwires are on the breasts:
Then the cups are too small

The intermediate piece between the cups 'floats', it does not connect to my body:
Then the cups are too small

Please note: With a well-chosen circumference band and cup size, there is an indication/sign that you have the right bra:
As soon as you fasten the circumference band with the hooks and your breasts are already close to the cups, that is a good sign.
When you then put the shoulder straps over your shoulders, the bra should fit perfectly.

2. I have chosen the wrong bra size, which bra size will I choose next?

There is an important relationship between cup size and circumference band. If you change the cup, the circumference band often has to be chosen differently.

The circumference is too tight, the cup size is good:
Choose a circumference band 1 size larger and a cup size 1 size smaller
Example: Size EU: 75B becomes EU: 80A

The circumference band is too wide, the cup size is good:
Choose a circumference band 1 size smaller and a cup size 1 size larger
Example: Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70D

The circumference band is good but the cup is too small:
The size for the size remains the same, choose the cup one size bigger.
Example: Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 75D

The circumference band is good but the cup is too big:
The size for the size remains the same, choose the cup one size smaller.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 75B

The circumference band is too small and the cup is too small:
Choose a circumference band 1 size larger, the cup size remains the same.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 80C

The circumference band is too large and the cup is too large:
Choose a circumference band 1 size smaller, the cup size remains the same.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70C

The circumference band is too small and the cup too large:
Choose a circumference band 1 size larger, Choose a cup 1 size smaller
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 80C

The circumference band is too large and the cup is too small:
Choose a circumference band 1 size smaller and a cup size 1 size larger.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70E

Another point of attention:
You always have a padded bra, for example, EU: 75D, and now want an
unlined bra:
If you take the same cup size the unlined cup will possibly be slightly too roomy.

Sie hatten schon immer einen gepolsterten BH, z. B. EU: 75D, und möchten nun einen ungefütterten BH:


Choose a cup size smaller: EU: 80C and 1 band size larger.

You always have a non-padded bra EU: 80C and you want a padded bra now too:
If you take the same bra size, the cup will be a little too small.
Choose a cup size larger: EU: 75D and band size 1 size smaller
