Hello ladies out there! Let me ask you a simple question, “Do you know your bust size?” Being females, we owe it to ourselves this question. Are you always battling between numbers and alphabets when buying a bra? Always needing to measure your circumference again and again, allowing bra sales persons who just want to make the sales to determine your bra size? Worry no more as this time we are going to share some know-hows on how to pick the right piece of lingerie for your busts.
Sorella Lingerie Private Workshop
Learning About Your Bra
In conjunction with the launch of their 3 latest lingerie collections, Sorella Lingerie recently conducted an exclusive workshop to educate women on basic knowledge of lingerie. The new collections cater for small, medium and large breast sizes. The collections come in elegant designs aptly named Dazzling Night for large busts, Romantic Whisper for smaller breasts and Dreamy Crystal sizes in between.
Sorella incorporates Cool Fabric technology to keep the skin 1.5 deg cooler and Infra Red technology that encourages detoxification and improve blood circulation in their latest products.
The workshop was carried out by Sorella’s Lingerie Guru all the way from Taiwan, Ms Chen a.k.a. Chen Lao Shi (Teacher Chen) throughout the session. Chen Lao Shi has 32 years of experience in the industry and is the perfect coach to answer all our doubts.
6 Things You Need to Know about Bra
#1. How to measure your bra sizeA. To get the size of the bra, measure the circumference of the body just below the breasts.
Sizes come in 70, 75, 80, 85, 90 and 95cm
B. To get the cup size, calculate the difference between the circumference of the body where it is the thickest around the breast and the bra size.
- 10cm difference A cup
- 13cm difference B cup
- 15cm difference C cup
- 18cm difference D cup
- 20cm difference E cup
#2. Wearing the wrong bra can disfigure the shape of your busts.A loose bra can cause the breast to sag as there is not enough support. A bra too tight can force the breast to grow out of proportion and subsequently seen as an extra flesh under the armpits.
#3. Allow only a thumb’s gap between the strap and the shouldersMs. Chen made an instant survey amongst us and found out that most of bra users wore the strap too loose. This will not give sufficient support to the breasts. While making sure the straps are not too tight, we are advised to keep the strap firm that only one thumb is able to fit between shoulders and strap.
#4. The bra has to be at the same level, front and back, when wornIf the bra is lifted behind when worn, it means that the bra has expired.
#5. The lifespan of a bra is only up to 90 washesFor those who have been using their bras for longer than that, it is time for shopping! By the way, good news for shoppers, Sorella’s prices remain the same even after GST.
#6. Do not wear a bra while sleepingThis is because we are not in control of our motions while asleep and this can cause the breast to run out of the mould of the bra. This can cause disfiguration of the breast.

After a one-to-one session with Ms. Chen, I confirmed my size and laid eyes upon a black piece in the Dazzling Night collection. My favourite lingerie glitters with rhinestones like an elegant evening gown, perfect for a person with a soft spot for bling bling. That shall be the start of the more confident me!
