Some tips for helping females buy a better-fitting bra have been listed by the New York Daily News.
The majority of the support is provided by the band, which should fit firmly against the body of the women at the loosest set of hooks.
The shoulder straps should not be made to take majority of weight and if they are digging into the shoulders, the female needs a better-fitting band.
Another important thing is that they shouldn't slip off your shoulders.
The underwire should be capable of encapsulating the breast (and underarm flesh) and tack firmly against the breastbone.
The bra cup should get filled and if there's space left at the top, then you are in need of a smaller size.
The nipples are going to be level with the middle of your upper arm if the bra fits you properly.
