Before and after the ‘boob scoop’…essential to putting on a bra!

The boob scoop… do you know what it is?  This little movement should become one of the most  essential rituals of your morning when you put on a bra.  If you don’t do the boob scoop, then your bra will not fit your breasts properly, and are likely to slowly migrate to show an unflattering and undignified ‘double boob’ poking out of the top of your bra!

This is an example of how your breasts will fit in your bra before, and after the ‘boob scoop.

This brilliant article from shows exactly how a bra fits before and after the ‘boob scoop’ method, and gives a very good visual guide to how badly a bra can fit after you have adjusted your breasts properly inside the cups.


‘This bra is a Charnos 34F. The wires seem to be encapsulating my breasts, the band can’t be stretched too far, and there is no overspill – in fact there is very slight gapping at the top. If I didn’t know better, I would think that it fits, or that I maybe need a 34E. However, the wires are not sitting at the root of my breasts – they are a good inch too low down. If I scoop, swoop and align…There is now very clear overspill. The band can now be stretched out extremely far, as my breast tissue is no longer taking up the band space.’

    • Hi Anusha,
      I would suggest that you try a 36C and see how you get on for now. We are working on a new version of the bra calculator, so that will go live and hopefully give you more help!

    • Hi Juhi,
      From the problems you described such as overspill and 4-breast syndrome, it sounds like the cups you are wearing are too small. Firstly, I would suggest that you use our bra calculator to see your correct size. Please put your measurements in cm not inches, and it will tell you what size you should be wearing. Make sure that the tape is very snug around your underbust when you take the measurement as if you have a larger bust you will need a firm underband with plenty of support. An underband provides 80% of the support for your bra, so if you can pull it away from your back by any more than two fingers then it is too big. If the bra calculator doesn’t show a size for you, then please send me your measurements and I will help you find your correct size.

    • Hi Ekta,

      Please check our bra calculator to find your correct bra size. It sounds like your cup is too small and your underband is too big, so if you put your measurements in cm into the calculator, it will tell you your correct size. Please watch our video on How to Measure your Bra Size to give you a guide to taking accurate measurements. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re still struggling.

    • Hi Swapna, if you follow the link to the article you can see that she is trying on several different bras to show how they fit before and after performing the ‘boob scoop’. The bra in the main picture is a Curvy Kate style, and we have a similar one here that you can take a look at. Let me know if you’ve got any more questions!
