With our freedom bra, a lot of the support comes from the underband. The underband should rest horizontally around your body, without riding up or digging in too much, and should be tight enough to allow only two fingers under the elastic. Start by wearing your bra on the loosest hook and eye, so that you can tighten the bra over the course of its lifetime.
If your underband doesn’t sit horizontally and instead curves up your back, a smaller back size should do the trick. If you can’t slip a finger under your band or you feel it digging into your back, try a larger back size.
To achieve the right pressure on your shoulders, you should adjust the straps to allow two fingers – one on top of the other – to fit between the strap and your shoulders. However, the freedom bra is designed to distribute weight evenly throughout the garment, meaning you will not need to rely on the straps alone for support.
Remember, we all come in different shapes and sizes, so there’s no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to strap lengths. If you feel like your straps are digging in, simply try another back size, or adjust your hook and eye.
If your straps are slipping down, retighten them. They can loosen over the course of the day.
Remember, our bra straps can be worn as a cross over, which is often useful for wearing under certain types of clothing, or for extra support.
In a nutshell, your boobs should sit fully into the cups without any spillage. When you put your bra on, do the scoop and wiggle to get your boobs in the right place. If you are wearing the correct size, they should remain in place for the rest of the day and there shouldn’t be any bulging or wrinkling.
If you feel like you are overspilling in your cup, try a bigger cup size. Conversely, if you feel like the fabric wrinkles or the cups are gaping, try a smaller cup size.
