When it comes to the classic Cosabella name, the first association that comes to mind is that of luxury—and it’s a cornerstone the family-owned, Italian-made lingerie line takes seriously. Also engrained in their philosophy: Creating quality, well-crafted items (a single thong can take up to 10 hours to make!) and holding comfort in high regard. We recently got to see a little bit of the Cosabella innerworkings in-action, via an online session with one of their fit specialists, Jazmin, who helped our editors find their just-right bra size.

“If I’m being completely honest, I can count how many times I’ve worn a bra since March of 2020 on one hand. With a whole new idea of what freedom means, I never even wanted to think about getting back into the game, until I had my online consultation with Cosabella’s fit specialist. In just five minutes, she ran through all of the best bra options for my body type, re-sized me, and managed to convince me that not all bras have to be uncomfortable. As it turns out, she was totally right—I feel more free and cozy in my new Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie Padded Bralette ($80) and Cosabella Evolution Bralette ($60) than I have in any other bras and I can’t wait to try more from the brand (maybe I’ll even dabble in a wire bra next time).” —Olivia Wohlner, Editorial Assistant

“Wearing a bra two cup sizes too small for five-plus years doesn’t just sound dramatic, it feels life-changing too. After my consultation with Jazmin, I felt so much more knowledgeable about shopping for bras—did you know the cup should begin below your underarm?—and left with a size made for my body. My new Cosabella Never Say Never Curvy Racie Racerback Bralette ($66) and Cosabella Soire Confidence Curvy Bralette ($70) in size 34F feel so much more comfortable and less restricting than my 34D options and have drastically improved my quality of life.” —Danielle Fontana Dooley, Senior Digital Editor

“Turns out I was right on the money about my bra size, which I appreciated hearing from a pro after all these years of buying bras based on guesswork—I never had a proper fitting before. However, something I did not know until my fitting was that you should always start with your bras on the loosest clasp option, and then as the bra stretches out over time, you work your way to the tightest clasp to maintain a good fit. The Cosabella experience, which introduced me to the Cosabella Dolce Bralette ($56) and Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie Bralette ($56), was so personalized and helpful, and the lace they use is sophisticated yet sexy—an instant confidence-booster.” —Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director

“I’ve been wearing a 40D bra for at least the last decade, probably more. While my bra brands always fit around my rib cage, my breasts often feel like they’re spilling over a bit, but I’ve always chalked it up to being a price I have to pay for being busty. When I had my online consultation with Cosabella’s fit expert I was shocked to find that I was wearing the entirely wrong bra size all along. She informed me that my correct sizing was a 38DDD, a size I probably never would have found on my own just from my own close-mindedness about going up cup sizes. Once I spent a day in the Cosabella Never Say NeverCurvy Sweetie Bralette ($66) and the Cosabella Dolce Extended Bralette ($80), I could see why I was always uncomfortable in my bras. Now, not only do I feel more supported, my tops look better, too.” —Tatiana Bido, Features Editor

“I haven’t gotten properly fitted for a bra since I went to the local mall for my first one many moons ago—and that was a bit rushed because I was embarrassed. More decades than I care to admit later, I was still a little bit shy about talking to Jazmin. Worry not, she was a total pro and made me feel comfortable two seconds in. While I wasn’t super far off from my ‘assumed’ size, she helped me ease into a slightly larger fit and suggested the Cosabella Ceylon Modal Bralette ($66) and Cosabella Never Say Never Racie Racerback Bralette ($56), two styles that I would have never normally went for that wear like a dream. Plus, my personal favorite: They wash up really nicely, even for something so intricately fancy!” —Liz Ritter, Executive Editor
