In this post, we feel it is important to discuss the “up and out” belief that many women have regarding bra fit. Most women think that a bra that pushes the breasts out and up high is well-fitted or flattering. The problem is that they are not considering the natural proportions of their bodies.
Generally, a well-fitted bra will make the height of the breasts appear to be halfway between the shoulder and elbow. But there are always exceptions. A woman with breasts with minimal projection or a woman with breasts that sit naturally higher on the torso will have a slightly different position that looks appropriate for a well-fitted bra.
Depending on the woman, there may be no difference in breast height whether or not she is wearing a well-fitted bra. Generally, the larger the breast size, the more noticeable will be the difference between wearing a well-fitted bra or not. But again, it depends on the woman.
Similarly, a well-fitted bra will make the projection of a woman’s bust look appropriate for her body proportions. A very large busted woman with a bra that pushed her breasts for maximum projection would create a disproportionate appearance since her bust would be the main focus, not her.
Ideally, a well-fitted bra will flatter a woman’s silhouette yet give her a “natural” look so that she looks both elegant and balanced.
Without proper foundations, there can be no fashion.
You can never really go wrong if you take nature as an example.
