6 Signs You’ve Finally Found Your Perfect Bra
Finding the perfect bra nowadays seems to be nothing short of impossible. There are hundreds of styles to choose from, and when you finally find one that you like, it’s hard not to wonder whether another style would work better. It’s easy to detect when your bra isn’t meeting your standards -- but how do you know when it is?
At Trusst, we design our bras to maximize support and comfort. We’re committed to creating the perfect bras, and we listen to and incorporate customer feedback very seriously whenever we’re creating our newest lingerie (you can read more about that here). We also are passionate about using real women to model and sample our products, and our bras go through rigorous amounts of testing before release in order to ensure that they’re as comfortable as they can be. As such, we’ve become pretty familiar with the telltale signs that tell you a bra is “the one,” and today, we’re sharing the signs you’ve finally found your perfect bra with you:
1. It fits.
This point may feel obvious, but it’s true. As we’ve stated on this blog before, over 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size! That can lead to all sorts of sizing issues that we’ve talked about in detail before.
But when you’re wearing the right-fitting bra, you won’t experience any of the common bra sizing issues you may have grown used to. Your straps will stay in place without digging into your shoulders; your breasts will fill up your cups evenly and exactly without spillover; and your band will stay in place and sit parallel to the floor. You also won’t find yourself reaching up throughout the day to tuck away an errant strap or pull down your lingerie. At Trusst, we know that a well-fitting bra can make or break your whole day! We believe the perfect bra should fit comfortably and support you no matter what you’re doing.

2. You aren’t racing to take it off at the end of a long day.
Many of us are familiar with the ever-popular memes circling the internet depicting the rush a woman experiences after taking her bra off at the end of the day. Those pictures tend to highlight just how relieving it is to unhook your bra and settle back onto the couch. And while that feeling may be pretty amazing, the perfect bra shouldn’t have you yearning to pull it off the minute you set foot in your house.
In fact, the perfect bra should make you want to wear it even when you get home. That means your bra shouldn’t be too uncomfortably tight, and it should offer you the kind of support that you’ll want to keep around. If you find a bra you’re excited to wear, then it’s definitely a keeper. You may even forget that you’re wearing it and fall asleep in it (true story -- this has happened to some of our customers, like Becky B from Annandale, Virginia)!
3. You can wear it under more than one type of shirt.
Beyond being comfortable and supportive, we at Trusst also believe that the perfect bra is versatile. Of course, there are different bras for different occasions, and styles like strapless bras, push-up bras, and bralettes are intended for their specific purposes. However, the perfect bra is one that you aren’t limited to wearing under just one kind of top or outfit.
Maybe your perfect bra comes in just the right shade of nude, like our Naomi, allowing you to wear it under both darker AND lighter colored shirts. Or maybe your perfect bra can be worn under both T-shirts and dresses like the Trusst Suzanne bra. Regardless of what you pair it with, the perfect bra should continue to flatter you without visible bra lines or any sort of showthrough.
4. You’re no longer experiencing aches and pains.
Prior to finding your perfect bra, you may have been wearing ill-fitting or poorly-designed lingerie that left you feeling sore and stiff at the end of the day. As we’ve stated, many of these issues may be due to fit or sizing. Regardless, we know just how unbearable they can be. You might not even be aware of how much tension your body is experiencing until you find the perfect bra -- once you do, you’ll be amazed at just how free and relaxed your muscles feel in comparison to before.
Your shoulders and bra straps should be responsible for carrying no more than 20% of your breast weight; any more than that and you may experience back, neck, and/or shoulder pain. Trusst bras are engineered using our revolutionary BAST™ system, carefully constructed to lift over 80% of your breast weight and redistribute it evenly across your torso. The perfect bra should feel as though it’s distributing your breast weight evenly across your core, and you should no longer find yourself dealing with any sort of pain as a result of incorrect fit or a design flaw.
5. You’re excited to put it on.
It’s true -- the perfect bra should make you feel thrilled to wear it. It might sound silly, but the perfect bra should be something you fall in love with when you put it on. You’ll wake up and look forward to, rather than dread, your trip to the lingerie drawer. The perfect bra won’t be something you put on because you have to - it’ll be something you put on because you can’t wait to!
6. You don’t want to wash it.
We all have that one piece of clothing that we wear for as long as possible before washing because we just can’t bear to part with it. The perfect bra is that piece of clothing, and you’ll know it’s your favorite by the potentially shocking number of days you wear it during the week. While washing and rotating your lingerie will actually extend its lifespan, we know that the perfect bra is one you’ll want to wear every day! Don’t be afraid to buy multiple bras or invest in the same bra in multiple colors so that you don’t have to ever sacrifice your personal comfort.
At Trusst, we strive to create the perfect bras for D+ women. We’re very proud of the innovative bra technology that we’ve created and are continually refining, and we’re even prouder of the ways that our bras are powerfully impacting women across the world (check out our Reviews tab to read all about this).
