About 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, which causes back, neck, and shoulder pain, poor posture, headaches, and other issues. Most companies also carry a very limited size range, leaving many women with few options.
Luckily, Nordstrom carries bras in a relatively large size range, with band sizes 30-48 and cup sizes US AA-O(12D). They also have well-trained fitters that use up-to-date methods to fit women in comfortable bras, and even provide alteration services.
Many women have ribcage circumferences, and therefore band sizes, of 28" or smaller. Brands such as Panache and Freya, which are carried in various sizes at Nordstrom, do make bras in 28" bands. However, this band size is not currently carried by Nordstrom.
If Nordstrom were to sell these bras, women with small ribcages would finally have an option besides buying online, which can be unpredictable. It's best to try on a bra before buying; different styles fit differently on different women, bras can run big or small, and many women are between sizes. Plus, it can take weeks for bras to arrive from the UK, which is often the only option for smaller-ribbed women, and shipping can get expensive.
Many women with 28" or smaller ribcages would choose buying from Nordstrom over ordering online if Nordstrom provided the option.
Please sign this petition to encourage Nordstrom to carry bras in 28" band sizes.
