Your questions answered....
How do I determine which impact level is best for me?
This normally depends on 2 things, your cup size and the type of activity you do. Most bras are either low, medium, high or maximum impact.
The larger the cup size then the higher the support level is required, but it is also a very personal choice as to what feels more comfortable.
Don’t forget we offer free returns/exchanges (please refer to terms and conditions), so no choice is irreversible.
What if my the bra is loose around the edges?
The cup size may be too large so try a smaller cup size
What if my breasts are spilling out of the front of the bra and your silhouette is bumpy?
Try a bra with a smaller back size but a larger cup size. At boobydoo we do start at size 28 and 30 band size dependant on manufacturer, so you can find the right fit.
Why are the straps leaving indent marks?
The back size may be too large so only the band of the bra is supporting you.
Try a smaller band size.
What should I do if my breasts are falling out of the bottom of the cup?
Try a bra which is smaller in the back and larger in the cup.
I find that my size fluctuates during the month
This is a common problem for most women.
We recommend that you buy a larger cup size for that particular time of the month, or if your weight fluctuates with weight gain or loss, you should wear the correct size so that the right level of support is given and the bra is comfortable.
We recommend you check your bra size every 6 months.
How often should I replace my bra?
This is purely dependant on number of uses, change in your size and how the bra feel?
Does it still give you the support needed? Is the fabric still performing as you would expect, has it lost its elasticity?
You wouldn’t carry on running in old misshapen trainers, so think about the same scenario for your bra.
How should I wash my bra?
Please follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for washing. The clips or hooks should be done up to prevent them catching on the drum of a washing machine if used. Never tumble dry the bras as this damages the fabrics.
The Importance of Wearing a Sports Bra?
Exercising without wearing a sports bra can cause damage to breast tissue, which can cause your breasts to sag and droop. To prevent this, you need to minimise bounce - fortunately a sports bra can help to minimise bounce by up to 83% - helping to keep your breasts in great shape.
