Sampling the fit of several bra manufacturers
"Specific lingerie manufacturers often pay for in-store bra fitters. Hence, they may strongly suggest one brand over other brands that may not be as good a match for you."
Bra Styles to Determine the Perfect Fit
When trying to determine your correct bra size, which bra styles are the best to try on?
Well, I asked this question of many of our manufacturers. What I learned is that certain bras are better than others for determining your accurate size. All the bras listed below share the attributes of full coverage and no padding. It's also no surprise that all these bra styles receive accolades in our Customer Reviews.
This Wacoal bra is the best fitting bra on the market. If you have fit issues, this is the bra for you! It was even used on the Oprah Show to determine proper bra size.

A word about in-store bra fitters: Many retail stores now
offer "bra fitting" services. As well-meaning as many of these
women are, you should be the ultimate arbiter in determining your
proper size. The truth is that women claiming to be "Bra Fitters"
may not always be providing you thorough fitting information.
