UPDATE: Giveaway over now, winners will be announced on Dec 17th!

I recently shared my excitement at the news that Bali, a leading bra brand for 20 years, has introduced the Beauty by Bali collection, a line of 6 different bras in sizes 36C & up now in Target stores and online at Target.com. This new line offers us Target shoppers more choices than ever when it comes to bras and a chance to achieve a perfect fit that offers support, comfort and beauty.

I think the perfect fitting bra is probably at the top of most women’s lists and it’s definitely at the top of mine! I mean after all it is an item worn most of my waking hours and therefore it better be comfortable! But part of finding the perfect-fitting bra begins with picking the right bra size, something that believe it or not, many women are not wearing. Do your bra straps leave marks, or does it ride up in the back? These are just 2 of several indicators that you may not be wearing the right size bra.

The right size bra matters if you want comfort, support, and the proper shape to look your best, but how do you go about finding the proper size bra? I had an opportunity to speak with a Beauty by Bali fit expert to find out the answer and she offered a couple of solutions as well as some bonus frugal tips on caring for and extending the life of your bras. :)

PROFESSIONAL FITTING

Many department stores with intimate apparel departments offer a proper bra fitting free of charge and with no purchase required. If you are shy like me, you will be happy to know- you do not have to be in the buff either. ;) In fact, you should wear your bra, even when fitting yourself.

GUIDELINE TO FITTING YOURSELF

*Determining Bra Band Size: With a measuring tape, measure around your ribcage, directly under your bust. If the measurement is less than 33 inches, add 5 inches to odd numbered measurements and 4 inches to even numbers. If your under-bust measurement is 33 inches or larger add 3 inches to it to determine your band size. So for example – if your under-bust measurement is 29, your band size will be 34.

*Determining Bra Cup Size: With a measuring tape, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Now subtract the Band Size measurement from this measurement to determine your Cup Size. Below is a standard chart for determining cup size. If the difference is 3 inches, then cup size = C, if the difference is 4 inches, the cup size = D, if the difference is 5 inches, the cup size = DD and so on.

CHECKING FOR PROPER FIT
While you will now be armed with a guide for your bra size, keep in mind that it’s specific to every woman. But here are a few tips you can use to ensure you have a proper fit. The center of the bra front should fit snug and lay flat against the breastbone. The cup should be filled out but not overflowing. The band should also be snug to the chest and not riding up or binding or constricting. The straps when adjusted should not be too loose or too tight- your lifting & support should come from the band & cups, not the straps.

HOW TO LENGTHEN THE LIFE OF YOUR BRAS
If you don’t hand wash, you should always launder your bra in a mesh bag and always hang it to dry. The heat from the dryer will destroy the elasticity a lot faster than if you let it air-dry. Try and have at least 3 everyday bras and rotate wearing them to give them a chance to recover their shape. It also isn’t necessary to launder a bra every time you wear it. If you’ve been to the gym or just ran 5 miles, that’s another story, ;) but normal daily wear does not necessarily render your bra dirty and less washing means longer life. Also buy your bras on the center hook, to allow for additional room if you need it at times, but you will also have room to tighten as the band relaxes over time.
