Let’s talk about Bra Fit - Common Bra Fitting Issues & How to Solve it!

Need a new bra? Not comfortable in your Current Bra? either way - here are some Common issues you might be facing & how to solve them plus tips that should make finding a bra that fits you better much more easier.

1. Underband keeps riding up the back / or keeps digging in?

Your underband supports accounts to about 80% so it is very essential when it comes to fit. Your under-band should be parallel to the floor.

  • If your underband keeps riding up the back - it might be too big, try going down a back size.

  • If it is digging in & is tight - it might be too small, try going up a back size.

  • Always wear the underband on its most loose setting - this will prolong the age and elasticity of your bra, move to a tighter setting when you feel it has gotten loose.

2. Straps are digging in / or keeps falling off the shoulders?

  • If your straps are always falling off even though it is on the tightest, try a narrower profile bra - like the plunge

  • If your straps are digging in, try a variety of styles and get measured again.

3.Cups just don't feel right?

Ensure that your breast are not bulging out of the cup / or the Cup is half empty

  • If your breast is bulging out, you should go up a cup size as the cup you are currently wearing is too small.

  • If your cups are gaping at the edge they are too big, trying going down a cup size.

4. You think wires are uncomfortable?

If you feel that wired bras are uncomfortable, you should keep these tips in mind

  • If the wires are digging in you should go up a cup size

  • If they wires are poking you, try a few other types of bras - different types have different shapes of the underwire.
