How to Tell if Your Bra is the Wrong Size
- Stand sideways in front of your mirror and lift your arm (mirror-side) up. If your bra band is perpendicular to the floor, it's good. If it's diagonal, rising from lower in front to higher in the back, you need a smaller band size.
- Look straight down. If your bra doesn't isn't snug against your breastbone (the skin between your breasts), you need a smaller band size. This also goes for if your bra doesn't meet the skin beneath your breasts.
- If your breasts are spilling out of the sides or tops of your bra cups (I call this four-boob syndrome, and I definitely have it going on in some of my old bras), you need a larger cup size.
- If you can't comfortably get two fingers underneath your bra band, you need a larger band size.
- If your shoulder straps are digging in, you should probably go down a band size.
- If there is wrinkling in the cup or the top of the cup stands away from your breast, try a smaller cup size.
- If you don't have any of the problems above, you're wearing the right bra size. Yay!
I hope this helps!
