When it comes time to try on some of the bras, you can have some fun showing off your own knowledge of the process with this handy tip.

Which hook you choose depends entirely on how well the bra is fitting that day.

Simply state that you know a bra should fit on it’s loosest hook setting when it is brand new because then you can continue to tighten it up as the elastic naturally gives and extends through everyday wear and tear.

It will also allow you to adjust your fit to accommodate the natural weight changes that occur through the month.

But never buy a bra that only fits on the tightest hook setting, because it will only get bigger with subsequent wear and washing. You really won’t get your money’s worth out of it!

Comfort is the number one reason to buy a bra. Don't buy one hoping that it will eventually fit well, after all , no one wants to break in a bra for three months hoping for better fit only to find that it is never going to meet your needs.
