How to Tell if Your Bra is the Wrong Size

After my last post, I started thinking that other women might be having trouble with even telling if they are wearing the wrong bra size. I certainly didn't realize it for quite a while! So...a mini how-to!

How to Tell if Your Bra is the Wrong Size

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. If you can't comfortably get two fingers underneath your bra band, you need a larger band size.

  5. If your shoulder straps are digging in, you should probably go down a band size.

  6. If there is wrinkling in the cup or the top of the cup stands away from your breast, try a smaller cup size.

  7. If you don't have any of the problems above, you're wearing the right bra size. Yay!

I hope this helps!
