You would find women spending hours on shopping for common items of clothing, but when it comes to their biggest necessity, the bra, they are not really aware of all the various options available in the market.
Most women feel that all bras are the same and any one would fit them properly. This is mainly due to the lack of knowledge and awareness about the ill effects related to wearing an improper bra.
The correct kind of bra is not always related to size and cups, but it depends on the structure of the breasts. Some have snagging breasts while some have breasts falling outward. Wearing an improper bra not only can enlarge your breast size but it can cause other problems due to the constant pressure on the shoulders, which can lead to even migraine.
Thus, in order to help you find the correct bras, here are some tips that should be kept in mind while shopping for a bra.
• The cup size of the bra should be chosen carefully to fit your breasts appropriately. It should be neither too tight that your breasts spill out of it, nor should it be too loose to have extra space inside it.
• While trying the bra, care should be taken to adjust the eyes and the hook of the bra carefully to keep it in place. It can be very annoying to have to adjust the shoulder strap and the band all the time. Thus, when trying the bra, one must check whether their two fingers can easily slide under the band smoothly or not. If the band of the bra keeps riding up, then one must choose a size smaller than the current one.
• While wearing the bra try moving your hands freely. If you notice that the band keeps rising up making the breasts fall out of the cups then a size smaller than that one would be apt for you. You can also try adjusting the shoulder strap properly just to check again. However, if the same issue persists, then select a smaller size.
• If you are trying an underwire bra, note that the wire should fall flat on the breastbone. If it is not in place, i.e. if it it’s either jutting out or riding up, then maybe you have selected a wrong size.
Thus, the next time when you go for bra shopping keep these few points in mind and take ample amount of time to select the bra which fits you perfectly. This will lead to you having a more comfortable time when wearing them.
