Bra FAQ's: How Do You Know If You’re Wearing The Wrong Bra Size

Bra FAQ's: How Do You Know If You’re Wearing The Wrong Bra Size

Ladies, you'd be surprised how many of us are strutting around flaunting our outfits but secretly battling with a sneaky foe beneath it all: a bad fitting bra. That’s right! Much like those old jeans we hope to fit into someday, we often make the mistake of holding onto bras that aren't the right size. 

So, how do you crack the code? Let’s chat about those tell-tale signs of a bra rebellion and how bras are supposed to fit.

1. The Spill-Over

If the girls are spilling over the top or sides of the bra cup, it's a clear sign! Your cup size might be too small. Remember, the ideal fit ensures that everything is tucked in neatly – no overflow, no peekaboos.

2. The Ghost Gap

While a spill-over tells you the cup is too small, a noticeable gap between the bra cup and your breast signals the opposite. If you can sneak a finger (or two) with ease and room to spare, it’s time to downsize.

3. “Ride or High” Band

Girls, that band isn’t there to crawl up and give you an unexpected back lift. If it's riding up your back, it's too loose. And if it’s digging in, making you feel like you’re wrapped in a clingy python? Too tight. A proper fitting bra band sits snugly, horizontally across your back.

4. The Shoulder Dig-in

If by the end of the day, you have angry red marks shouting at you from your shoulders, you’ve got strap issues. They might be too tight. However, if they keep falling, even after adjusting, you need a tighter fit or a different style.

5. Center Gore Issues

That flat piece between the cups, called the center gore, should lie flat against your chest. If it’s floating away or pressing in, girl, that’s your bra’s way of saying, “we need to talk”.

6. Wrinkled Cups or Wires That Wander

Wrinkles on your clothes? An ironing job. Wrinkles on your bra cups? Time for a re-evaluation. And if underwires are poking or wandering, it's a cry for a better size.

So, how should a bra cup fit? It should encapsulate your breast fully without any pressure, gaps, or excessive stretch. Think of it as a gentle hug - firm, comforting, and just right!

In a Nutshell:

Wearing the right bra is like having a silent supportive BFF, always there, uplifting you (literally!). So, take a moment, stand in front of the mirror and check for these signs. A simple change can boost your comfort, confidence, and even your posture.

After all, it’s not just about looking good. It’s about feeling fabulous from the inside out. With this guide, you’re now armed to ensure every day is a perfect fit day. Cheers to the right kind of support!
