Like most women, I have always had a love-hate relationship with bras. While they are definitely a necessity, it seemed to get the best fit it was necessary to be woefully uncomfortable. Let me share a personal story, and how Wacoal bras have made such a tremendous difference.
As I began developing breasts in my youth, one grew faster than the other. This forced me to stuff my right cup with whatever I could find in an effort to create some symmetry. Can you imagine the stress this caused my 8th grade self? But when the right finally caught up with the left, my breasts grew so fast that by the time I was in the 10th grade, I was already in a DD cup. I was an awfully skinny kid with extra large breasts. Finding age appropriate bras that weren’t only comfortable, but that fit properly was like finding lost treasure. My large breasts were the bane of my existence for many, many years.
What caused me the most stressed? Definitely spillage! If they weren’t spilling out the sides, I would have “quad boob”. And trust me, four boobs are NOT better that two.
What’s Quad Boob?
“Quad Boob” is the double bump that spills out from the top of your bra, creating an effect that looks like you have four breasts. It’s also quite uncomfortable and embarrassing, especially when it shows under your shirts. Even as an adult, and post breast reduction surgery, I continued to have problems with spillage. The cause was mostly attributed to wearing the wrong bra size.
Wacoal’s Flawless Comfort Bra Is A Game Changer
It didn’t matter how many bra brands I tried or how many bra fittings I experienced, nothing helped minimize spillage. I’d resigned myself to believe this was just the cards I was dealt. That spillage was normal and just something I’d have to live with.
That was until I discovered the absolute joy of a Wacoal bra coupled with their free professional bra-fitting services. I’d been down this road before of getting fit by various brands over the years so I wasn’t expecting much. But Wacoal changed all of that for me.
The Flawless Comfort Bra is one of the best bras I have ever worn. The way it has eliminated my “quad boob” problem seems almost revolutionary. It’s also proof that a bra can be fashionable, feminine and comfortable too!
Thanks to my Fit Specialist Natasha, I no longer have overflow-ing cups or wear uncomfortable bras. Besides helping me find my perfect bra size, she also shared three great tips for achieving the perfect fit. I learned that the secret to comfort lies in where the bra band fits, where your bra straps sit and correct cup size. In fact, I have fallen asleep in the Flawless Comfort Wire Free Bra and had absolutely no issues.
Natasha also taught me the correct way to put on my bras. Once I followed all her tips, I’ve found that I can wear my bras comfortably for extended periods of time. I’ve shared these invaluable fit tips below, all of which have made a huge difference in how my bras fit.
Wacoal Bra Fit Tips
1. Always adjust your breasts so that all of your breast tissue is inside the cup AND the wire.
2. Make sure the underwire lies on your body and does not dig into the breast tissue. The underwire should sit just around your breast, and not down on your belly.
3. Adjust your bra straps so they aren’t too tight or too loose. An overly tight strap will pull your cup up and cause unnecessary and uncomfortable bottom spillage.
I can’t express how much Wacoal bras have made such a difference in how I look in my clothing. And the Flawless Comfort bra is by far the best in class. There is no bulging, lots of comfort and absolutely great support. I would highly recommend this bra to every woman of every size.
