Why should we standardize bra sizing methods?
Let us start with, Why do bras use wire?
\Bras use wire to help shape the bust area. The wire helps keep the fabric in place and helps maintain the bra's shape.
Is the underwire or bra band more supportive?
The bra band is typically more supportive than the underwire. The band encircles the body, providing more support than the wire located farther away from the body.
How should a bra fit? A bra should fit snugly but not too tightly.
The band should be snug, parallel to the ground, and not ride up. The straps should not be too tight or loose, and the cups should fit without any gaps or bulges.
Why do bra companies offer few sizes with underwire?
Bra companies often offer fewer sizes with underwire because they are more complicated to design and manufacture and, therefore, more expensive to create and own throughout stores. They also require precise measurements to fit correctly, and special molds per cup size encourage companies to offer fewer sizes and hope more people buy those sizes.
What are the benefits of wearing a bra without an underwire?
Wearing a bra without an underwire includes improved comfort, reduced risk of chafing, less pressure on the ribcage, and increased flexibility. Wearing a wireless bra can also help pain management for women with breast-related conditions.
Is the wire in a bra good for the person wearing it or the shape of the bra?
The wire in a bra is suitable for the person wearing it and the shape of the bra. The wire helps support the bust area and provides shape and support for the person wearing it.
Why do some companies measure rib cage and bust while others measure armpit and bust to determine bra size?
Some companies measure rib cages and busts to determine bra size because this method is more accurate and allows for more precise sizing. The armpit and bust measurement method is less accurate and can lead to an ill-fitting bra if the measurements are not accurate.
The armpit and the bust measurement method is less accurate and can lead to an ill-fitting bra if the measurements are inaccurate, yet some bra companies suggest this method. Why?
Some bra companies suggest the armpit and bust measurement method because it is simpler and easier to measure and can be done from home without needing special tools or equipment. However, this method is less accurate and can lead to an ill-fitting bra if the measurements are not accurate.
Why did BRABAR create the shop-by-band EZ-fit method for teen girls? BRABAR created the shop-by-band EZ-fit method for teen girls because they recognized teens' difficulty finding a bra that fits correctly. The EZ-fit method allows teens to quickly find a bra that fits correctly by using their ribcage measurement, eliminating the need to guess their size or find a store that offers professional bra fittings.
Why does BRABAR promote the ribcage method of bra measuring?
BRABAR promotes the ribcage method of bra measuring because it is the most accurate way to determine a person's bra size. The ribcage measurement allows for a tailored fit that accounts for unique body shapes and sizes, and it can help ensure that the bra fits correctly and comfortably.
BRABAR is creating a movement for change in the bra industry, promoting standardization of bra sizing methods and supporting the rib cage method for bra measurement.
