There are a surprising three million online searches every month on issues around bra size and despite comfort, shape and fit, ranking in the top attributes when choosing lingerie, 76% of women surveyed admitted to wearing the wrong bra size.

Of those surveyed, fashion and style was secondary to lingerie that makes the most of our clothes with 68% of women saying they choose lingerie to enhance their choice of outfit. Women spend an average of just $145 a year on lingerie compared to other size specific wardrobe essentials such as shoes, where women spend an average of $660 a year.

The survey revealed that 73% of women agreed that poorly fitting lingerie affected their confidence, negatively impacting their working day and in some cases affecting their performance when in a job interview scenario.

30% of women, globally, had never been for a proper bra fitting.  Reasons for this included lack of knowledge of where or how to find the service. Interestingly, women in the US & UK were amongst the lowest percentage of women to have received a fitting in the last six months with 35%.  Italian women were the highest percentage to have received a fitting with 64%, followed by France with 42% and Germany with 25%.

Eszter Szijarto, Head of Brand Marketing Triumph comments "At Triumph we believe in providing the best fitting lingerie for every shape and occasion.
