    Correct!
    Wrong!

    They should feel snug, but not too tight on the loosest hook!

    Many women wear new bras on the tightest hook which isn’t that great for support. If you buy a bra that fits snug on the loosest hook, you will be able to tighten your bra as it stretches out over time.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Hand wash them with a lingerie detergent and hang dry them

    Rule #1: Never throw your bras in the dryer! The heat from the dryer and the chemicals from regular detergents will wear out your bra faster. Even on a delicate cycle, your bras can still get ruined in the washer.

    40G

    DDD is not as big as you think! It's hard to guess someone's bra size when you compare yourself or the bras you see at major lingerie stores.

    Plunge Bra

    To determine a bra style, look at the gore of the bra (its the front-center of the bra) and the cup coverage. A bra with a low/small gore is a plunge. A balcony, demi cup, and full coverage bra has a higher/larger gore than a plunge bra.
