Although most women wear bras, few of us know our correct bra size. The following examples will illustrate that you might be doing something wrong.
1. The Centre Front Panel Isn’t Resting Against Your Skin
If the cups are too small, the bra will be sitting on your breasts instead of your sternum. The same applies if your skin is pinched under the wire. Do yourself a favour and go up a cup size.
2. Two Breasts Visible
From under a t-shirt two round shapes should be visible. It shouldn’t look as if two babies are trying to peek out of their pouches. If it looks as if your boobs are joined in the middle, it looks equally unattractive. In both cases, you are wearing cup size too small.
3. Armpit Boobs
Those flabby bits that pop over the side or the top of the cup are once again caused by cups that are too small.
4. The Edges of the Cups Are Not Flush with Your Skin and the Cups Are Wrinkled
It is here that one has to draw a delicate balance. Although you don’t want your breasts peeking over the edges, you need to make sure that they lie flat against the edges of the cups. If not, you need a cup size smaller. If this is all getting confusing, take the time to have yourself professionally fitted for a suitable style like the Prima Donna Deauville White Bra at places such as http://www.orchidlingerie.co.uk/white-prima-donna-deauville-full-cup-bra.
5. The Strap Creates Back Cleavage or Back Fat
If you have cleavage at the back, the band is way too tight. However, the little rolls seen above your band are caused by a band that is too big and rides up. When you raise your arms in the air, the band should not be moving on or away from its position. Tight bands can become very uncomfortable and lead to back ache. Wearing the correct size is essential to your general health and well-being.
6. The Straps Fall Off or Dig into Your Skin
The straps are not what should be holding your boobs up. Be sure to adjust them to your height without having them dig into your skin.
A well-fitting bra will be comfortable and make the clothing covering it look great too.
