Do your bra cups gap at the top?
Look for a bra with “light lift” or a push up. These bras have padding on the bottom or side of the cup that lift the breasts to fill the cup. A fuller-busted woman wearing the same bra will have a more dramatic cleavage display.
Have Double-Bubble? Does your breast tissue spill out over the front edge of the bra and at your underarm?
You’re likely wearing an incorrect cup size. Try the next cup size up. A good check would be to try your bra on under a snug t-shirt. If your breast tissue isn’t contained to your bra and it’s apparent under the shirt, you have chosen the incorrect cup size.
Why is the band of my bra riding up in the back?
The bra you’re wearing may be too small or too large around the band. Your bra should always sit horizontally around your body. Use a measuring tape to find your correct size under your arms, across your back and top portion of your chest. If the number is even, this is your band size. If the number is odd, add 1 inch to that to get your true band size.
How do I choose a bra that fits my bust shape?
If you are “shallow in the bust” and you experience an open, hollow area inside your bra where the strap attaches to the cup, choose a bra with a pared-down style, such as a Demi. If you have a full, rounded bust, choose a full-coverage bra that ill contain your entire bust without any “double-bubble” effect.
Should I wear a smaller cup size when wearing a strapless bra so it doesn’t fall down?
This is so not true! A strapless bra is designed very much like a bra with straps. Your bust should comfortably and straight across your back. You can always adjust the bra with the “back-close” feature using one of the three adjustments for a more snugly fit.
What’s the ultimate test of a properly-fitting bra?
- Is the gore, the center part of the bra, flat against your body?
- Do the breasts have a natural separation?
- Are they contained without any spillage?
- Does the band remain horizontal around the body without riding up?
