Are you wearing the correct bra?

  1. You need at least 5 bras. This allows you to rotate your favourites so as to not stretch and wear them out. Rotating makes them last longer.
  2. Your bra size is constantly changing. Weight loss and gain also affects this. Prepare to constantly monitor and change your bra size.
  3. When you buy your bra, use the last clasp. The longer you have the bra the looser it will get, then you can adjust it accordingly.
  4. Your bra shouldn’t move when you lift your arms. If it moves it’s either you’re wearing a small cup size or your strap is too loose.
  5. The centre of your bra should lie flat on your chest. If it pokes out, consider going up a size.
  6. You shouldn’t see any wrinkles on your cups, your breasts should completely fill up the cups. If you see wrinkles, you need to get a smaller size
  7. If your straps are riding onto your shoulders, you need to get a bra with smaller straps. The bands are not supposed to be doing all the work of supporting your breasts.
  8. Too much side boob or spillage in the middle means you need to get a bigger cup size. Breasts are supposed to rest comfortably inside the bra.
  9. If the back of your bra is riding up, you’re probably wearing a bra that is too big.
  10. If your underwire is uncomfortable and is sticking into your ribs, get a size up to give you more allowance.
