Lingerie brand DORINA gives us insight into how to make our underwear work for us and pick the best-fitting pieces for our collection
Words Maria Ryan
With straps that leave behind marks, bands that are too tight and elastic waists that have lost their hold, we push our underwear and lingerie to the point of no return. We sacrifice function for comfort and allow the lackadaisical waves of living with our tired and ill-fitting undergarments to wash over us. However, the bra is something that, when fitted right, is a woman’s best friend, boosting confidence and accentuating her assets. Lingerie brand DORINA guarantee a perfect fit every time with these helpful hints…
1. Know your body
Understanding and knowing your body shape plays a big part in finding the right style of bra to create the perfect foundation for any outfit. Know what styles suit you and your outfits for maximum support, comfort and impact whatever you’re wearing.
2. Be mindful
When it comes down to buying a bra, it’s all too easy to be on autopilot, choosing the same size every time without a thought that it might not be right for you anymore. With the average woman’s bra size changing every six months, it’s time to close those curtains and hold your own personal fitting.
3. Fit is key
It’s essential to have enough cup room to ensure a smooth base and avoid overspill. The band should be a comfortable snug fit; too loose and it will ride up, but too tight and it will leave telltale marks. It’s all about finding a happy medium.
4. Don’t shy away from shapewear
Shapewear has become a must have piece in every woman’s wardrobe regardless of size with its instant benefits of smoothing and shaping. To avoid the famous VPL, shapewear should be as invisible as possible. If too big the lingerie will twist and cause discomfort resulting in an undesirable effect.
5. There’s a method to the madness
DORINA’s experts understand it can be hard to put your shape wear on. They recommend rolling up, stepping in and gradually pulling over your body to ensure it fits perfectly every time.
With these hints in mind, the perfect bra is out there waiting for you!
