How to Fit – Torsettes
Welcome! You’re about to learn how to find the torsette that’s the right size for you. To do so, you’ll be using your underbust measurement. If you’re ready, let’s begin. This presentation will only last a few minutes.
There are several reasons why a torsette can be a great shaping choice.
First, because a torsette has no fabric that covers the bust area, it allows you to wear your own, favorite bra and be more comfortable.
Second, it allows you to customize your intimates ensemble. For example, if your top or dress has a low neckline, you can pair your torsette with a plunge bra. Or, if you want a smooth appearance across the front of your blouse, you can wear a t-shirt bra.
Third, a torsette is ideal for hard-to-fit bodies. If you have difficulty finding other shapers, such as camisoles, because your bra size isn’t available, this shaper is for you. Or, if you find a piece of shapewear that fits your hips, but not your bust, or vice-versa, you’ll love the flexibility that a torsette provides.
Finally, this silhouette delivers solutions to multiple problems including: back fat, muffin top, tummy pooch, and love handles. It also provides a little bust lift and helps you maintain good posture. The torsette is one of the most versatile pieces of shapewear available.
Before we talk about sizing, here’s a really helpful tip.
As you may know, getting into shapewear can be a workout. But you don’t have to get hung up when putting on your torsette. You’ll find the easiest way to slip on this silhouette is by first stepping into the neck of the garment, and then pulling it up over your hips.
Now it’s time to figure out which torsette is right for you. If you’re in a hurry, or are already sure of your bra size, the next slide will help you find your torsette size in a flash.
If you know your correct bra size, then you’re almost done.
Find your ideal torsette size by using the numerical part, or band size, of your bra size.
For example, say you’re a 34C. Drop the “C” and you’re left with a 34. Looking at the chart, a 34 corresponds to a size medium.
If you’re not sure of your bra size, it’s no problem. Stick around and learn how to measure your underbust and determine your bra band size.
Here are some tools you might find helpful when measuring your underbust: a flexible tape measure, a pencil and paper, and a mirror. You may also find it helpful to have a buddy assist you.
Now, we’re ready to get down to business.
It’s best to take off your shirt when measuring your underbust, as the fabric gets in the way of accuracy. Place the tape measure around your torso, right underneath your breasts. Make sure that it lies flatly, and parallel to the ground, all the way around your body. Pull it snugly to get an accurate measurement. Round the result, up or down, to the nearest whole inch. For example, if your measurement is 29 3/8”, round down to 29”. Or, if your measurement is 29 ½”, round up to 30”. Next, we’ll use this number to calculate your bra band size.
Take the number you just found and add 5” if it’s an odd number, or 4” if it’s an even number.
Continuing with our example, 29” + 5” = a 34” bra band size. Or, 30” + 4” = a 34” bra band size as well.
We’re almost done.
Find your newly discovered bra band size on this chart and you’ll discover its corresponding torsette size.
For example, if your bra band size is 38 inches, that correlates to an extra-large torsette.
That's it - now you’ll feel confident when looking for the torsette that's right for you.
