Know your size & style

This is the most important step, so do not skip this. Even if you think you know your size already, it is best to measure bra size before you shop for a new ladies bra. This is because our body is constantly changing and growing, hence, it is always recommended to check your size, especially if it has been more than six months, before you shop for a new plus size bra online. Plus, try to not get distracted by new designs that you are unsure of, unless you want to experiment with a few new and trendy style options that you believe may look great on you.

It is important to understand that while most innerwear brands try to cater to industry-specific sizes, yet, the sizes of ladies bra can have variations from brand to brand, & even from one style to another. Therefore, it is best to always check the size chart offered by the brand, on their website, before making your purchase.

Read the product description

If you are shopping online, remember that most products look very different in real life. Hence, in order to foolproof your purchase, read the product description. Here you’ll get all the information about the fabric, design, colour, technology and other important details that will prove to be very helpful; mostly, if the brand follows a ‘no-exchange’ policy. Given below is an example to help you understand better.

However, if you are shopping at a store, read the tag, try the bra on and see if you like the fabric feels good on your skin. If it irritates your skin, no matter how great the bra looks, it’s better to steer off.
