Other than pain or discomfort, women who are seeking out a new bra should consider these three signs you’re using the most unhealthiest bra.
Women want to look their best, but they still have a fear of having a bra size that is too high, like D cup, or too far from average (which is considered 34B and 36C). Below are some tips that your bra size may not be the ideal size for you.
All Bras Aren’t Created Equal
If all the different types of bras you have are the same size, you are not wearing the right size. Bra types, like demi, full coverage and pushup, are not made the same. So your bra size in one may be slightly different than in another type of bra. If your drawer has all the same size in various types of bra, then some of those are guaranteed not to fit correctly.
The Band Moves on the Tightest Setting
It is the circumference of the bra that holds things in place correctly. So if you are wearing a 36C on the tightest setting and it still moves, then your bra is too loose. Try a size lower. You may also need to increase your cup size when you do this in order to hold your boobs in their proper place.
If your breasts overflow the cup on the top or the sides show bulge, then you are wearing the wrong cup size. Your breasts should be contained comfortably and the area of the bra between your breasts should be flat against your skin. Make sure these are the case in order to be more comfortable all day long and have your breasts look their best as well.
All of these tips may help you understand you are wearing the wrong size, but you still may be shaky on what size to invest in. For that situation, go to a store that offers bra fittings. Wear a thing t-shirt to allow the employee the best access to your chest for the fitting. They will then recommend a few bra types and sizes so you can see what you like best.
Women tend to be embarrassed to admit they might be wearing the wrong size. However, take heart in the fact that most women start with the so-called average sizes of 34B and 36C and rarely diverge from those. That means you could have been wearing the wrong size bra for you for years. This has happened to lots of women. Correct the issue now and be amazed at how comfortable your bras will be. It can be very freeing to find out a different size is better for you. Try not to focus on the cup size or the number associated either, as they make your breasts look better and make you more comfortable, and in the end that is usually what you are hoping to achieve anyway. Enjoy the more comfortable fit and ignore the size.
