Bra shopping can be full of difficulties and pitfalls, leaving a lot of women dreading their next bra shop or even putting some women off for good. It is part of the Bras and Honey mission to make bra shopping a pleasurable experience with no worries and leaving you feeling happy and confident in your new bras. That is why we have taken the time to go through a few bra shopping dos and don’ts, to help make your shopping experience the best it can be.
Know your bra size
It seems simple, but a lot of women do not know their correct bra size. It is recommended that you are professionally measured every 6 months. This will ensure that you are confident in what size you need and you are going to be happy, comfortable and supported in your new bra. Don’t be tempted to go a size up or down if your size isn’t there, get in contact and find out if they are going to get more sizes in stock and when.
Try Things On
It is always a good idea to try a bra on before you start to take the tags off, especially if it is a new brand to you or new style of bra you have never worn before. When you try on your new bra to see if it is the right fit, follow our Bra Fitting Guide to be sure that the fit is correct. Don’t worry if it isn't right for you, whether it’s the wrong size, doesn't offer the right support or you just don’t like it. As long as you have kept the tags on Bras and Honey are happy for you to return the bra for the correct size, different style or even for a full refund.
Read the Descriptions
Just because you like the image of a bra doesn't mean it will be the right bra for you. A good online retailer will have a full description of the feature on a bra. Read all the information you can on the product, so you can have a clear idea of what it has to offer and what type of bra you are ordering. A quick read of a products description can save you from the annoyance of having to send your new bra back.
