Addition Elle Canada Free Bra Fit Clinic + A Good Bra Fitting Guide


Addition Elle Canada is having a free Bra Fitting Clinic this Saturday October 5, 2013. Great opportunity to get your bra fitted for free if you need to.

That being said, it seems that some retailers employ unknowledgeable people who get the bra fitting incorrect. I’m not saying Addition Elle does that, just that it happens sometimes. Reddit has an awesome guide on Bra fitting, how to get the size right, where to buy bras etc. I strongly  recommend you check it out especially if you have any of these symptoms:

  • A bra that doesn’t lift — it simply sits ontop of your breasts and mooshes them
  • A gore (central part of the bra) that doesn’t tack, especially after swooping and scooping (here is a photo of a properly “tacked” gore)
  • A band that rides up
  • Straps that curve away from your body in the back (band is too big)
  • Strapless bras that slip down constantly
  • Straps that fall down
  • Gapping in the top of the cups (this can happen at any size, but especially seems problematic among A and B cups)
  • “Quadboobing” or excess breast tissue that has nowhere to go in the cups
  • Breast tenderness when you take off your bra that has nothing to do with your time of the month
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Straps that dig into your shoulders
  • Breasts that fall out of the center of the bra
  • Breasts that fall out of the bottom of the bra
  • Excess “armpit fat” (this can actually be breast tissue)
