Too big:

  • Bra is raised or higher in the back than front of bra.
  • Bra is gaping in the front by straps.
  • Bra is gaping and is not close to the body in the front and middle of cups.
  • Bra is gaping in the cups (breast tissue is separated from cups).

Too small:

  • Breast tissue bulges and spills from cups.
  • Back tissue bulges from strap and band area.
  • Front of bra rises and breast tissue comes out at the bottom of bra.

How to Make Sure You’re in the Right Bra Size

  1. Because of the nature of a woman’s body, it’s always changing so you should get measured every six months.
  2. To prevent stretching out your bras and misconfiguring the cups, don’t put them in the washer and dryer. Hand wash and air dry only.
  3. You should be able to hook your bra on the middle hook comfortably. First hook if you lose weight, last hook if you gain weight.
  4. Never squeeze into a bra if it’s too small.
  5. Never wear a bra that’s falling off on the tightest of straps and hooks. It’s just too big.

Now, that’s how you wear a bra.
