Sister Sizes

March 01, 2018

Sizing is a mystery, isn't it? Every brand tells us we're a different size. All media seems to tell us we're in the wrong size. It's a mystery and a frustrating, time consuming mystery to solve. Not anymore, we're here to help!

Did you know that most of us women are in fact a small band, large cup size? For years fitters have told us all we're a 32, 34 or 36, when in fact most of us have a smaller band size, and larger cup size!

A perfect example...

ASOS says that the model wears bra size 32F. From the front, the bra looks like it fits. However, you can see the back of the bra arches up her back.

Arching up the back is a sign that the band size is too big. It arches up as it's too loose to give your boobs the correct level of support.

As it's arching considerably, we'd expect that the model is in fact a 28 band size, rather than a 32 band.

Because of the sister sizing rule, where you go down a back size, and go up a cup size proportionately, we'd estimate that this model in fact needs to wear a 28G.

Her sister sizes are: 32F, 30FF, 28G & 34E.

The front of the bra will always look like it fits in all these sister sizes, as they all share the exact same volume capacity, however support will be lacking in all her sister sizes.

This is how high street stores can measure you all into their size range, and it appears that the bra actually fits, when it in fact is giving you very poor support, will affect you posture and your boobs will jiggle as they are left to their own devices...pretty much!

So, if you've been measured as 34 or 32 band in a high street store, and the band arches up your back - come to us and book in your free fitting! We'll have you and your boobs in an amazing fitting bra in no time! We promise, you'll feel the difference in an instant, and you'll never be able to go back to a loose fitting bra again once you've felt how amazing a brilliant fitting bra feels!

Book in by emailing hello@attollolingerie.com or messaging us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Love A&Fx

I have always bought underwear, (I use this term as mine really doesn’t deserve to be called lingerie!) out of necessity and never treated it as anything more than functional (although, turns out mine previous bra wasn’t even serving that purpose!) I can’t believe how your lingerie makes me feel! It is functional and beautiful. I didn’t realise it was possible for what I wear under my clothes to have such an impact on how confident I feel!

You can probably tell that I'm more than a little impressed by Attollo. Speaking to every member of the team feels like having a cup of tea and a natter with a close friend. I've left every fitting with a smile and never once felt uncomfortable or self-conscious. I just can't wait to fill my bedside drawers with more Attollo products, and I literally tell anyone that listens about Attollo."

Customer Edit: "The gold mine of all things bras and boobs"

I truly hope that more women, especially indian women, take that step towards loving their boobs and do a facetime fit with Attollo. 
The whole process from the first facetime fit to the fit check and getting my 30H Emelie was so seamless. There was so much love and understanding and kindness and I truly felt seen for the first time.
