Psst! We’ve Got the Secrets to Finding Your Perfect-Fit Bra

Ever since Oprah gave the world a wake-up call on finding the right bra–she says 80% of us are wearing the wrong size!–we’ve been on a constant quest to get the lift we deserve. Enter Le Mystère, the brand that believes the right bra can change your life, to let us in on some of their fit secrets.

To celebrate their first-ever Gilt sale, the brand’s director, Jessica Pfister, is sharing some ace tips for finding–and maintaining–a “did you lose ten pounds?” fit.

1. Once your straps are adjusted, you should only be able to fit two fingers between them and your shoulders.

2. The top of the cup should neither bulge or gap. If it’s bulging, the cup is too small or your straps are too tight. If it’s gapping, the cup is too big or your straps are too loose.

3. Underwire should follow the perimeter of the breast and rest gently against your ribcage.

4. “Most of the support comes from the band, not the straps,” says Pfister. It should hug firmly around body and lie horizontally across your back. If it rides up in the center, this means the band is too large and you need to go down a band size.

Bonus tip: “Never wear your bra two days in a row,” says Pfister. Doing so doesn’t give the fibers enough time to rest and retract, which means the band will stretch quickly over time.
