Quick Bra Tips And Solutions

If your cup (the letter) is wrinkling, it is too big.

If your breast are spilling out of the top and sides of your cup (the letter), your cup is too small, or you need to try on a different style.

If one of your breast are noticeably larger than the other,  make sure the bra cup is large enough to fit the largest breast.

If your straps are always slipping off your shoulders, your band (the number) is too big or you need to try a different style.

If your straps dig into your shoulders, your band (the number) is too big.

If your bra straps ride up your back and you are always pulling it down, your band is too big.

Solutions To Your Bra Problems

The Ultimate Bra Fitting Guide by Debra Sanders-Steele

Back Fat, wire poking, strap falling, sagging and bruising are just a few of the complaints I hear daily.  Just knowing why you have a problem may help you solve the “bra mystery”.  Here is a list of solutions to some of your bra problems.

1. Band Rides Up Your Back — Usually, this means that you are wearing a bra that is too big in the band (the number).  If you are now wearing a 36C, try a 34C.  If the cup is too small, go up a cup size (34D).  Also, try loosening your straps and fastening your bra in the tightest row of hooks.  

2. Breast Are Falling Out Of The Cups — Your cup is too small.  Try going up a cup size or two.  If the band feels too big, go down a band size.

3. Underwire Pokes Into The Sides Of Your Breast — This means that your cup size is too small.  Go up a cup size.

4. Cups Are Wrinkling And Caving In — Your cups are too big. Go down a cup size.

5. One Breast Is Much Bigger Than The Other One — Fit the larger breast and fill the smaller side with a removable pad, or get a style that is lightly padded.

6. Breast Sag and Hang While Wearing A Bra — If your bra is old (6 months or more) it is time to get rid of the bra. If the bra is new, the band is too big and you need to go down a band size.

7. Back Fat — Believe or not, back fat is caused when you wear your band too big.  Go down a band size so your band fits snug and does not ride up your back.

My Straps Dig Into My Shoulders And It Is Painful. What Can I Do?

When the band (the number) of your bra is not giving you adequate support, the shoulder straps are forced into providing additional support. The most common reason for digging shoulder straps is the band size being too large. Full-figured women know the bra sizing game all too well. For example, if she is a 38E and the bra she wants only goes as high as a “D” cup, she will go up a band size and down a cup size and think it fits (40D). However, she has done a disservice to herself because going up a band size means her straps are going to have to make up for the support lost in the increased band size. To relieve shoulder strap pain, Do not go up the band size.
