Welcome to Berdita Lingerie!

It is said that around 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. This can lead to problems with posture, back and shoulders pain, and appearance.

Common tell tale signs that you are wearing the wrong bra size include breasts falling out of cups, breasts not filling cups, the back riding up or digging in. If you are experiencing any of these problems then read our ‘what’s my size’ guide, and then watch the bra fitting video, accessible from our homepage, to see how to check your bra fits properly, and finally to find out how to measure your breasts.

Measuring the bust to obtain a bra size only works half of the time. This is because the elasticity in the bra construction varies with different products and so every bra that you try on will be slightly different. This means that your bra size may vary between different makes.

Before buying a bra from Berdita, we recommend that you establish your bra size using the 2 methods (fitting and measuring) provided on the ‘what’s my size’ page and then buy the right size for you. Once you receive the bra, check that it fits correctly by carrying out the following quick tests:

  • Stand in front of a mirror, and insert your thumb under the band and just pull it a little.
    If you can pull it more than one inch, then the back size is too big.
  • Look at the cups – are they cutting in to your breasts?
    If so you need to go up one-cup size. Or do the cups have loose fabric? If so you need to go down a cup size.
  • Is the bra riding up at the back?
    If so you need a smaller back size.

If you need to, you can return the bra within seven days, and exchange the size.

When you have found a bra that fits you perfectly, it is a good idea to stock up on a few!

It is also important to remember that your breasts will change at different times during your life. Weight gain or loss, pregnancy and hormones can all have an effect on the size of your bust and therefore it is important to re-fit yourself every six months or so, and more frequently if you are pregnant. This will ensure that your bras are comfortable and well fitting.
