Wearing the wrong size bra means that you aren’t getting the flattering and supportive fit that your figure needs. A bra that is too small or too big can also lead to discomfort, causing pain to your shoulders, neck and back muscles. At Natural Figures we are all about helping ladies everywhere flaunt their gorgeous figures with the support and style of a well-fitting bra.
Here are a few tips to help make sure you are wearing the right bra size…
There are several tell-tale signs that you are wearing the wrong bra size. The first can be spotted by taking a look at the back band of your bra. The back band should sit comfortably against your body however if it is too big or too small it can cause discomfort – not to mention leave your figure unsupported. You should usually only be able to fit a maximum of two fingers between yourself and the back band of the bra, if you can fit more fingers than your bra is too big. To test if the bra is too small, take a look at the shape of the back band. It should either form a straight line or a v shape, if the V is upside down then it is too small.
You can also assess whether your bra is too small by taking a look at the underwire. The underwire should remain flat on your body, if it pulls forward then the bra isn’t giving you the support you need as the bra is too small.
The bra’s cups can give a good indication of what bra size you should be wearing. Your breast should be smooth along the line of the cup and if the cups are too tight, your bra may create the unflattering ‘four boob effect’ where your breast spills over the top of the cup. Baggy cups are a sign of a bra that is too big therefore your breasts are not receiving the support and shaping benefits of a well-fitting bra.
