  • The seven stages to the perfect fit: 'Bra whisperer' reveals what you need to know before shopping for underwear - and the one mistake all women make

    We wear them every day, put them through their paces and expect them to last - often far longer than other items in our wardrobe do.

    And yet, for many women, bra shopping is a hurried, stressful experience - meaning we often end up with an ill-fitting, poorly-thought-through piece of underwear.

    To help you on your journey to buy the perfect bra, FEMAIL spoke with Paula Svoboda, a fitting expert for Triumph, who revealed the seven stages to the perfect fit.

    Read More: Are you wearing the wrong-sized bra?

    * If the band of your bra is rubbing, your breasts are too big for the bra. * Similarly, if your band is on the tightest hook and you can still slide it around with ease, then your bra is too big
    * Check your straps - if they're digging into your shoulders or constantly falling off and needing to be tightened, then your bra doesn't fit correctly.
    * Just because you're one size in one store, doesn't means you'll be the same size in all stores.
    * If you have 'boob bulge', either over the front or the sides of your bra, then it doesn't fit right.
    * Try to get professionally fitted every six months, and wear your bra tightly to ensure the best fit and room to move.
    * Increase the shelf life of your bra by washing them inside a laundry bag and avoiding the tumble dryer.
    The seven stages to the perfect fit, revealed by a fittings specialist

    1. As a fittings specialist, establish the size of the lady through measuring her or with your eyes. 2. Find out what sort of bra she is after, whether it's a minimiser, strapless, non-wired or sports bra.
    3. Put the bra on the woman and adjust accordingly, clipping in the middle and adjusting the straps.
    4. Check all areas for a perfect fit - make sure the back has ample room, wire is off breast tissue and the breasts are flush in the cup at the front (no four boobs, just two).
    5. Explain to the customer how the fit is the one for her, how it supports and shapes her breasts and the features and benefits of the bra.
    6. Make sure the woman is totally happy and ask her about colours and other styles - and if she needs briefs.
    7. Invite her back for another fitting.
