Sylene FIT GUIDE

Bras

It's all about the right fit and we are here to help.

After all, that is one of the many things Sylene is known for. The right bra not only supports and enhances your bust, it actually improves the way clothes look on your body.  If you have been fit in our store, you know how easy it is. Here's a little poem to help you select your perfect size!

Do you think you already know your bra size? You may be surprised. Begin your search for the perfect bra by taking new measurements. We suggest going to a shop like Sylene that specializes in bras to be measured correctly. Or do it yoirself.

To measure the band, with your own bra on, tightly wrap a tape measure aound your ribs, directly under your breasts. Then take a second measurement by wrapping the tape snugly around your back, under your arms and straight across the top of your chest. If the numbers differ, take an average of the two. If the number is odd, add an inch to make it even. To measure your cup size: place the tape measure over the widest part, or center of your breasts, at the nipple. Subtract the cup measurement from the band measurement.

1-inch A Cup
2-inch B Cup
3-inch C Cup
4-inch D Cup
5-inch DD Cup
6-inch DDD Cup
7-inch DDDD Cup
8-inch FF Cup
9-inch G Cup
10-inch H Cup
11-inch I Cup
12-inch J Cup

Use this checklist to make sure your bra fits you properly.

  1. The back is properly adjusted; the three hooks are designed for this purpose.
  2. The sides shouldn’t fold or feel too tight.
  3. The bra should not move when you move around.
  4. The bra should not cut into the breasts.
  5. The straps should be properly adjusted; not too tight (the back strap creeps up and the breasts dip down), and not too loose (the bra is not supportive enough).
  6. And if despite all of the correct strap adjustments, you have the feeling the back is still a little too high, choose a smaller band size and a larger cup, i.e., choose 34C instead of 36B.

Panties

Like women, panties come in all shapes and sizes, and every woman has her personal panty preference.

Whether you're looking for a panty to prevent visible lines in your clothing, smooth your tummy, exude sexiness, or just seek comfort, you will find exactly what you want at SyleneDC.com. At SyleneDC.com we carry a wide range of panties for every woman's needs from brands like Hanky Panky, Cosabella, Felina, Wacoal, Fleur't, and many more!

  • BIKINI
    Bikinis have a waistband that rests below the naval and around the hips. The sides vary in thickness from just a string (string bikini) to a fuller cut. The rear coverage on a bikini is moderate.
  • BOYSHORT
    Boyshort are a feminine version of a man's classic underwear shape, and is generally low rise with wide, almost square-cut sides that completely cover the hips, buttocks or the upper part of the thigh. This style is especially flattering to straight hip figures and generally prevent visible panty lines.
  • BRAZILIAN BRIEF
    Brazilian briefs are reduced in size both at the front and the back and narrows at the hip to a thin strip of fabric.
  • BRIEF
    Briefs feature a waistband that sits at or just below the belly button and features full rear coverage with high cut or traditional legs.
  • CONTROL BRIEF
    Control briefs have the shape of a brief and feature a tummy-flattening front panel and/or total smoothing engineered into the design. It’s the perfect minimal option for toning without wearing a major shapewear garment.
  • G-STRING
    G-strings are similar to thongs, with no rear coverage and a single string that passes between the cheeks of the buttocks. This panty eliminates visible panty lines.
  • TANGA
    Tangas offer moderate to minimal coverage with a back panel wider than a thong but narrower than a bikini.
  • THONG
    Thongs feature a minimal back, with only a thin piece of fabric that passes between the cheeks leaving the buttocks completely bare.

Swim

Need to support a fuller bust?

Try a suit with an underwire for maximum support. Halter tops with wide bands and adjustable backs are a good option. Consider separates, as it allows you to buy different sized tops and bottoms.

Need to enhance a smaller bust?

Try a triangle-cut bikini top. It will help lift and shape small breasts. For more coverage, try a tankini or one-piece with a hidden underwire which will give bra-style lift and support. Consider separates, as it allows you to buy different sized tops and bottoms.

Want to minimize your hips and thighs?

Try a printed top with a solid bottom to draw attention upward. One-piece suits with wide straps or neckline detail (shirring, color-blocking, etc.) are another good option. Skirted bottoms offer more coverage for the hips and thighs.

Want to minimize your tummy and waist?

Look for styles with a surplice bodice to create the illusion of a waist. Look for suits with tummy control. Styles with shirring or draping across the tummy help conceal and create curves. Textured solids are also a great option.

Separates are the best fit solution for you, as it allows you to buy different sized tops and bottoms. Pair a printed top with a solid bottom to draw the eye up. Try suits that are cut high to lengthen the leg. One-piece suits with a modest plunge creates a long, continuous line. Avoid boyshorts or skirted bottoms as they draw the eye downward.

Separates are the best fit solution for you, as it allows you to buy different sized tops and bottoms. Try a shorter tankini top that ends right at the waist. Avoid vertical stripes. high necklines, and dark, solid color

Focus on solid colors that help minimize or opt for a textured one-piece that help smooth out the tummy. Ombre prints and styles printed at the top and solid at the bottom help draw the eye up. Swimdresses offer more coverage for the hips and thighs.
