PRODUCTS, SIZE AND FIT
What is your bra sizing standard?
Remember there is no universal standard for bras and bra sizing varies between brands and countries. Whilst we follow UK standard, there may still be little difference. For more details, see Our Size & Fit.
How do I convert my current bra size to your bra size?
No, you don’t. Simple conversion between different size charts may be confusing and mostly not precise. Therefore, we allow you to make your own measurements and then you can match the figures with our size chart to find your suitable size of our bras. To know more, view Our Size & Fit.
How do I know what size of your bras fits me?
Simply use our “Get Fitted” online service. Or you can follow Our Size & Fit to make correct measurements and then match them with our size chart to find your Satami bra size(s). Sometimes, you may find yourself fit for more than one size.
How do I know the right style and fit for me?
Most women will know what styles of clothes fit them better, but this may not be the case for choosing bras. Therefore, we introduce our “Get Fitted” online service, which we can recommend you proper styles and size that we think fit for you. You will also find a fit summary to guide you in future bra shopping.
What can I do if my items don’t fit me?
We suggest that you follow our Our Size & Fit guide. If you are not sure if the item fits you, you can Contact us for more information. If you confirm that the item doesn’t fit you, simply return them according to the standard returns procedures.
What is your “Get Fitted” service?
Instead of fitting you in person physically, we have formulated detailed computation that we can offer our professional fitting guidance via our online store by means of a “Simple” Q&A session. This is an online questionnaire, allowing our algorithm to determine your breasts and body shapes and then recommend products that we consider that will work for you. With this tool at your fingertips, you can choose your perfect fitted bras and shaping garments at the comfort of your home based on our recommendation, minimising the results of wrong sizes, unwanted styles and fit.
After taking the session successfully, you will see your “Personal Shop” every time you have signed in, showcasing all the updated items and sizes that we recommend. Most importantly, you will also see your fit summary that can guide you in future bra shopping.
How to use “Get Fitted” service?
Before start, please get ready a measuring tape and make sure that you put on a wired bra that you normally wear and think fit. After that, just click on “Get Fitted” link anywhere you can find on the Website. Then, simply follow our Q&A session step by step carefully and we will guide you through. You must sign up to allow us to record your results, it is ok if you have not done so before the session so we can show you the results.
My body or size changes, what can I do?
Yes, we know women’s body change from time to time, that’s why we encourage you to re-take the “Get Fitted” online service when you think your circumstances have changed. Simply click on “Get Fitted” online service to re-take.
I feel that your bras are tighter than others.
Yes, our functional shaping bras have a tighter feeling than normal bras as they cover you more and are made of stronger power mesh fabrics at the band for better support, hold and control. The tightening effect is needed for better control and secured fit, and you should not feel discomfort if the size and fit is right.
WASH AND CARE
How should I care for my lingerie?
- Hand wash your bras whenever possible. For machine wash, always wash your bras in a professional lingerie washing bag. This will ensure that the hooks do not get caught on anything in the wash and underwires do not break. It will also stop your bras from getting tangled and stretched with your other washing.
- Do not dry your lingerie in a dryer or under direct hot sun as heat is not great for the elastics in them and will cause them to stretch prematurely.
- Do not use softener for lingerie as this will break down the elastics.
- When storing your moulded bras, do not fold the cups inside out as this can cause the moulding to go out of shape.
- For more details, please see Here.
