  • Now bend over. There’s no need to touch the toes. If in this posture too your breasts are falling out, then the bra doesn't fit.

  • Make sure that even when you twist left to right at the waist, your bra still stays in its place.
  • Depending on the bra style, ensure that the fabric on the panel between the cups is resting firmly against your sternum.
  • Repeat these same steps on all the bras that you have selected for purchasing. Ensure that you pick out ones that fit from others.
