Bra Fit Experts Meet the Merchants Personal Style

Introducing our Bra Finder

We’ll be the first to admit it: There are a lot of bras out there, and finding the ideal ones for you can be…how to put this…challenging.

We here at Bare Necessities have cracked the code that turns bra shopping from drag to delight. Enter our expert Bra Finder, a bra size and fit quiz we developed using both the data we’ve accumulated and the know-how we’ve honed in 20 years in the business.

We get that the best bra goes beyond a number and a letter; it’s the one that makes you feel unstoppable. Because we know the perfect fit is about more than proper support; it comes down to confidence. Here’s how it works….


Bra sizing is antiquated, complicated and way less intuitive than it should be. Why waste another minute trying to figure it out when that’s what we do here? Like hiring an accountant to handle your taxes, some things are better left to the professionals.

With the Bra Finder, we’ve already done the legwork for you. You don’t even have to get dressed or leave the house to get this one thing handled—if it’s a good bra, we’ve got it. Our buyers zero in on the heroes, narrowing down a vast universe by finding the fabulous among the functional. We get it right, and we make it easy. (Click any thumbnail shown below to enlarge it.)



What sets us apart: We are for everybody and every body. Answer a few questions about your body type and the bras you’re currently wearing (for better or for worse) to instantly get personalized results at every size.

We narrow our selection not only to bras we carry in your size (and, unlike come-lately competitors, you’ve got near endless style choices from over 80 of the world’s best bra and lingerie brands) but also the ones we know will fit you best. The very center of the Venn diagram, the sweet spot.

You may be wondering: How do we know which bras are best suited to your body, your style, your life? Because we can rattle off in our sleep which bras are the proven winners for which sizes, and how the perfect choice should fit and feel. We know firsthand what women want because, all along, you have not been shy about telling us (thank you for that)!



Remove “good enough” from your vocabulary. We never want you to settle. Want even more results? Along with your custom recommendations, we also provide additional styles that deliver on fit, support and comfort in all different categories. So if we suggest a fabulous plunge but you’re in desperate need of a full-cup T-shirt bra, you can still pick a bra you love that won’t let you down.

Give it a try here.


P.S. Still not sure where to begin? Talk to an Bra Fit Expert at 877-728-9272 (x4) for next-level hand-holding, a complimentary bra fitting or personal shopping advice.

Hi Valarie! Our most-loved strapless is the Wacoal Red Carpet, but of course every body is different. Give our Bra Fit Experts a call or chat, and they can help you find the best strapless bra for your unique figure, size, fit and needs (877-728-9272 x4). Talk soon!

Hi Charlene! Thanks for reaching out! While we don’t have any back smoothing bras that are also balconette bras, we did come across one style that may work: The Sculptresse Estel Full Cup Bra. This is a full-cup bra so it doesn’t have the same cups as a balconette, but the straps are wide-set and it does offer some back smoothing. We would also recommend a fitting with us over phone or chat; since Lane Bryant is a private label, their sizing isn’t always consistent with the sizing on our site. Please give us a call at 877-728-9272 and select option 4 to speak directly with one of our Bra Fit Experts for more style and fit advice.

Dear, for my wedding I am searching for a lowback body with also a bit of a plunge front. I am a 70F in EU size. So I need some help finding the correct size on your site. Thank you!

Hi Evelien, thanks for your question and congratulations on your upcoming wedding! The converted size you are looking for on our site would be a 32DDD. However, if you are looking for a bustier, they can run a bit snug in the band and may require some sister-sizing into a 34DD. Do you have some time to give one of our Bra Fit Experts a call to go over your requirements in further detail? We can be reached at 1-877-728-9272, option 4.

I currently haven’t found anything big enough to fit. I am squeezing into a 38k from lane Bryant. Is there a larger cup size that this company Carrie’s. I am worried I’m not understanding the sizing between US and Europe.

Hi DAnn! We carry bras from from AA to O cups. Our Bra Fit Experts can assist you with finding your best fit and help you with any necessary size conversions. Give us a call Monday-Wednesday 8:30am-8:00pm and Thursday-Saturday 8:30am-6pm at 1-877-728-9272, option 4, or use the Chat feature online. Talk soon!

Hi! I have been to lingerie shops and the only bra I can fit in comfortably is a Goddess #6090 bra in size 46h. I have had a hand injury and can no longer hold it tightly enough yo clasp it in the back, and the proper fit vra cannot be worn loose enough yo hook in front the strap in the front and slide around so the hook sits on my back. Is there any kind of front clasp bra that would be a decent substitute for my bra?

Hi Jenny! While we don’t have a front-close bra that is also side support similar to Goddess’ Keira, we found a style that could work for you: The Veronica bra has a side panel that runs from the bottom of the cup to the top where the cup and straps meet, which will help provide lift while also pulling the sides in for a nice forward projection. Please give us a call at 877-728-9272 for help with sizing and ordering. Talk to you soon!

Hi Pris! Thanks for reaching out. We always like to say that a comfortable bra is one that fits. In order to find a bra that fits, you need to get measured. I would definitely recommend giving us a call at 877-728-9272 and speaking with one of our trained Bra Fit Experts. They will also be able to take you through a fitting and recommend comfy styles in your size. Good luck, talk soon and be well.

I am a 51 yr old female size 40D. I need a bra that will lift and also help my back. Got any suggestions

Hi, AnnMarie! Thanks for reaching out. For a back-smoothing bra, two great options would be the Wacoal Basic Beauty Bra or the Le Mystere Second Skin Back Smoother T-shirt Bra—but the best thing you can do for yourself would be to get measured before you go shopping. Give us a call at 877-728-9272 and speak to one of our Bra Fit Experts for help finding your size AND a style you’ll love.
