Importance of Getting Fitted!




What are the stages of a bra fitting?

● We take 2 measurements, one over bust and one under bust.

● We use the measurement to give us an idea of what size you require to try!

● Your lingerie consultant & fitter will collect a few bras based on their measurements.

● You try on each of the bra to see their fit and the shape they give you to make sure they are what you are looking for.

● Last, but most importantly, we check that your new bra is comfortable! This is a MUST!

 What we look for in a fitting!

1. The Band. Moonrise Lingerie like to start at the back, we check that the back is sitting nice and low. (The back of your bra should be level with your underwires at the front. 80% of the support comes from the back of your bra, and only 20% comes from the straps! The band of your bra should feel comfortable and not cut in to your skin. Continuously wearing the wrong side band can cause sore skin, redness if the band is too tight and can lead to back pain if the band is too loose due to not having the correct support for the weight of your breasts.

2. The Cup. Once we have ensured that the back of your new bra is fitting correctly we turn our attentions to the front! We check that your bust is filling the cup correctly. Making sure that you are filling the whole cup, (including the bottom of the cup).  We also want to check that you are not spilling out over the top or sides this suggest that the cup is too small, just as it would suggest that the cup is too big if it had ripples or gaps. Wearing the incorrect cup size results in your breasts not being supported and the stretching of your breast tissue increasing the changes of over stretched breasts as you get older and start to lose the definition. Or it can have the opposite effect and be too tight causing possible damage to your breast tissue.


3. The Underwire. These play a very important role! This helps to support your bust giving it lift. Your underwire should be sitting FLAT against your ribs, (however you would not be able to feel it digging in). Your Moonrise Lingerie Consultant will also need to check that the underwire is sitting correctly at the side – not digging in to your breast tissue allowing it to cause damage to your skin or tissue. The outside end of the underwire should be aiming towards your underarm NOT back into your bust! The inner end of the underwire should be sitting against your chest between your bust, again not digging in to your breast tissue.





Always make sure YOU feel comfortable in your new bra before leaving the shop. If you feel uncomfortable then the bra is not the correct style, shape or size, so you must let your fitter know!

Wearing the correct bra size, shape and style brings you comfort, relief and confidence to stand up tall and embrace life.

Royce Lingerie Specialist.

October is such a special month,  we all join together to help raise money to beat cancer!

I thought I would take this opportunity to write a short blog post about our non wired, mastectomy bras supplier, Royce Lingerie who will be donating £1 from every bra  they sell throughout the whole of October.


Royce are world leaders when it comes to non wired bras. They have been specialising and producing wire free since the early 90s. Royce have designed a truly outstanding mastectomy bra that is innovative in style, superbly comfortable and containing X-Static silver fibre to aid the healing process.


I recently had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners Jane Fleming, when I attended their in house advance training program and factory tour.


This was such a wonderful experience, being able to meet, measure and fit some truly remarkable ladies who had undergone mastectomy surgery (single or double!).

The ladies told us of there experiences and later allowed us to measure and fit them in lingerie from the amazing range that Royce offer.


Royce are very dedicated to what the do and helping ladies who require non wired bras in all areas, not just mastectomy. They have utilized the technologies and designers they have to create a teen bra collection which feature sizes 28AA- 36D, a beautiful non wired collection in a full range of sizes and a maternity collection which range up to a 40K!

Today’s lingerie spotlight is a beautiful and elegant Low Back Bridal Corset.


Not only is this an eye catching wedding corset that will leave your newly wed speechless when they see you on your wedding night, it also offers some great features to go with your wedding gown. This popular low back wedding corset is well suited to backless and sweetheart styles of wedding dresses because of its low back, which sits perfectly placed below your shoulder blades for comfort whilst at the same time maintaining its support structure.

It is made from a delicate lace at the front, whilst the back is a soft stretch mesh which allows it to mould to your bodies natural curves leaving a stunning silhouette.


This is a full length corset sitting half way down your hip, many others rest just above the hip. Resting over your hip allows the corset to act a little like shapewear in the fact that it holds all your waist, hips and tummy in whilst still maintaining a smooth look.


This low back bridal corset will sit perfectly with this style of dress or similar, as the low back of the corset will swoop down your side to your lower back following the outline of the gown.


Our stunning low back bridal corset is made from a beautiful quality lace, and is available in ivory or white with a full range of sizes, it has the added flexibility of removable suspender straps, that would allow for bridal hold-ups of stockings if preferred.
