Ladies, from annoying straps that just keep sliding off to major side-boob spillage, there are a number of problems we’ve all faced. Uncomfortable and/or unflattering bras? We're way too accustomed to them for it to be good for us! So today we give you the most common weird bra problems - and tell you how to solve them. Say hello to a happier chest!
Your back band is probably too high and can be lowered by loosening the straps so that the band sits below your shoulder blades. You can also get rid of the back bulge by scoring a bra with a wider band at the back so it covers more area.
Your straps are probably doing all the work to support your girls and not the band, so you may want to try a smaller band size. Also, wider straps are a comfier option, especially if you’re big-breasted.
Tighten the straps (duh!). If that doesn’t work, maybe your straps are stretched and worn out, which is a sign that you need to make a shopping trip for some new bras. You can even try convertible straps that crisscross across your back and fit you snugly.
Girl, the cup size you're wearing is simply too small. Go out and try a bigger size. Make sure the band fits your back snugly as well.
If your nipples are stealing the show, you definitely need to ditch your bra style for one with much more padding. A well-padded T-shirt bra (like this Cotton Rich Padded T-Shirt Bra from Marks and Spencer) will do the trick.
If the underwiring makes you uncomfortable, then you’re wearing the wrong size. A well-fitting one will surround your whole breast and lie under and on the sides without digging into your skin. Get yourself measured, pronto.
You need to go up a cup and band size so your bra fits you levelly from the front to back and gets rid of all your saggy problems.
Everybody has a set of girls that are slightly different, but some woman have a more noticeable difference than others. When the difference in size is not too much, you can simply deal with it by adjusting your straps accordingly on each side. If you need to make your bust look more even, your bra should be sized according to your larger breast; you can use a removable pad on the other side.
Restock your bra drawer every 6 months to 2 years, depending on how often you wear them. You need to throw out even your most favourite bra once it’s stretched out and stopped doing what it’s supposed to!
