7 Underwear Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making
Recover from all your under-the-surface woes with this lesson in bras, panties and shapewear
Our guru says that a good bra "should lift the breasts to midway between the elbow and shoulder. The bra support from the straps should be only 10 percent." The rest of the support should come from the back band. On that note, Hernandez suggests trying a band size smaller and a cup size bigger than you're used to.
Ideally, breasts should be positioned "inside the body frame and centered on your chest wall," Nethero says. For the best shape and definition, there should be a 1-inch space between them. Sound complicated? Take a field trip to your nearest lingerie shop for a complimentary bra fitting, and ask your stylist to walk you through.
In the meantime, recommended sag-fighting bras include the Freya Gem bra, Panache Porcelain bra and Chantelle Merci 2-Part Cup Underwire Bra.
