World Breast Cancer Day

Today is World Breast Cancer Day, and it is an important day to dedicate this post to all the women who have ever, or still are, doubting about our bra size and the models we can find in Punto Blanco. 

Wearing the wrong size is not only uncomfortable but also harmful to our health. Our breasts are not well supported and it can cause discomfort, muscular pains, marks, ...

Sometimes, out of ignorance and a bit of laziness, we buy bras by eye, without knowing for sure if that is our size.

Do you really know your size?

First step - Contour 

Take a tape measure, the one you have in your sewing box that you rarely use, and measure the contour of your bust, below the chest (figure A). This measurement will be translated as your size

Second step - Cup

Take the tape again and pass it behind your back to measure your chest. It should go just above your nipples (figure B). This measurement will be translated as the cup (it is a letter). 

Step 3 - Size guide

You can consult the famous Punto Blanco size guide on our website:

We are also going to share some simple tips that always find useful.

  • The band of the bra is too tight, the underwires leave a mark, or your breasts stick out above the cup. Sign that you need a bigger size.
  • The bra moves out of place even when you adjust the straps, your breasts don't feel tight, or the cup is "hollow". You should choose a smaller size.
  • Are you one of those who always find it difficult to fasten up your bra? A trick that never fails: fasten up at the front and then turn it.  

I know my size, but it's true what they say ... A bra for every occasion? 

Real. In Punto Blanco we show you the different bar models that we like the most depending on the garment and the moment. The fabric can be cotton or microfibre.

We leave you a selection and on the web you will find all the details you need to convince yourself that you are about to buy the best bras.
