The "Understated Underband" is where the majority of the support of your bra should come from. This should be horizontal across your back and feel firm but not uncomfortable. The underband should not ride up your back.
The "Crucial Cups" should not give you any "Bounce Back" meaning they should encase your whole breast and if you gently push the wire nearest to your armpit, there should be no bounce, meaning no unsightly bulges. The wire should sit neatly against your skin, flat in the middle right through to the underarm.
The "Supportive Straps" should do exactly that, but only a little. They should not slip off your shoulders and should support but not dig in, remember the majority of the support comes from your underband.
Because we are passionate about the fit, we do not sell online as we feel it 'goes against the grain'. But, what we can do is provide you with information on what you should be looking for and another 'Window' into our shops so that you can browse our ranges before you come in or call.

KEEPING YOUR LINGERIE AND SWIMWEAR IN GREAT CONDITION
Washing We, along with the manufacturers, advise that all underwired garments are hand washed. Machine washing can shrink the delicate fabrics and can also misshape the wires, even causing them to pop through. This can also lead to considerable and costly damage to your machine.
Using warm water - not hot as this can grey your whites - a drop of Soak (as pictured above) gently wash your delicates and swimwear by hand. Do not use fabric conditioner as this breaks down lycra and always rinse swimwear in cold water after use. Drying Dry your lingerie and swimwear away from direct heat, as this can again damage those delicate fabrics, embroidery, lycra and lace.
