How to Spot A Badly Fitting Bra

It is very important that a woman ensures that her bra fits perfectly. This will give her the opportunity to stay comfortable and confident throughout. There are two factors that you must consider to make sure that the bra is a perfect fit. These are the cup-size of the bra and the bottom band of the bra. If a woman is wearing an ill-fitting bra, she will have a tough time. Below are a few pointers that will help you know you have an ill-fitting bra:

Appearing to have a double-breast or a uni-breastill-fitting bra

Any time the cup of the bra is too small, there is a high likelihood that the breast is going to be parted in different portions. There is the possibility of the breasts being squashed together to form a uni-breast or the partitions to form four breasts. This fit can be awkward for any woman.

Spaces between the breast and cups and also wrinkly cup

These outcomes are as a result of an over-sized bra. To make the situation better, you could opt for a smaller cup size.

The bra’s centerpiece pulls away from the body.

Whenever the center of the bra does not sit on the skin of the wearer, it indicates that you are wearing an ill-fitting bra. You may need to consider purchasing a bra with a longer band.

If you want to identify that the band of the bra does not fit well;

-Straps slide off the shoulder or even dig into the shoulder of the wearer

A strap that keeps falling off the shoulder is a clear indication that the band is too big or it has not been correctly adjusted to the appropriate length. On the other hand, a small band can cause the strap to dig profusely into the shoulder of the wearer.

-There are rolls on your back

Rolls on the back shows that the band of the bra is too big. In that case, the band sliding upwards would lead to rolls on your back. The back end of the bra should be parallel to the front band of the bra. It is crucial to check the size of the bra by setting it on the loosest setting and placing two of your fingers underneath the band. The bra in this position should fit with just enough space for slight adjustmeants.

-There is an appearance of an armpit-breast

Any woman should be very concerned if this occurs. It can be caused by many issues such as having a wrong cup-size, band size and even a cup that is too small.

When buying a bra, ensure that the fit is best at the tightest setting, since bras stretch and you may need to adjust.
