Choosing the right bra size is difficult for many ladies. Statistically, almost 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra, usually too big. It could sound strange; it seems that an unsuitable bra must be uncomfortable, and a woman should feel that immediately. However, in most cases it’s all about an inch or a half. Even though at the first sight they do not seem as important, they can make a big change. That’s why it’s important to talk about proper bra fitting. Every woman should know, how to understand when her bra is suitable.
First we’ll talk about too small bras. There are women, especially those with bigger breasts, who wear too small bras. Why? There may be various reasons. Some ladies may be dissatisfied with their breast size and by choosing a smaller bra they try to trick themselves. Also, they might think that smaller bra will be tighter and will give extra support. Lastly, one might just not find the proper size bra and remain contented with a smaller bra. These are really huge mistakes that can be done while choosing a bra. Too small bra means more compression which leads to unaesthetic view. Tipped out breasts and squeezed back that can be seen through clothes are the most common companions in such case. Wearing an undersized bra is uncomfortable and may cause back ache. Women should be aware that proper bra will highlight the advantages of their body.
On the other hand, choosing a too big bra is even more frequent problem. Women tend to think that bigger bra is not so bad. Breasts look fuller; one does not feel pressure and compression – what could be wrong? But, in fact, everyone knows what problems occur while wearing too big bra, just do not relate to those things. Bigger bra is not tight enough and thus cannot hold the bust properly. That’s why the band lifts up, and the cups with breasts move down at the same time. Lady looks just as if she was with no bra, and the back looks just horrible – the band appears to be between the shoulders! And what if her blouse or dress has quite open back? Then the scene is shameful and unaesthetic!
How to avoid such problems – you’ll ask. Well, choose a proper bra. How does a well-fitting bra feels?
First of all, the band should stay horizontal; this ensures that the breasts will stay lifted and nicely shaped. The straps can be narrow for owners of small breasts or wider for the busty ladies (in order to avoid pain in shoulders). The cups must fit perfectly. They should be neither too small (else your breasts will be pushed together and tip out), nor too big (else there will be a gap between your breast and inner side of a cup). Make sure that the breast looks like an extension of the cup, smooth and roundly shaped. Girls who have small breasts and are not satisfied with them, shouldn’t think that a too big bra will help them out. They should just buy a push up or a bombshell bra. While ladies gifted with large busts should know that too small bra will not make their beauties look smaller. They should try a minimizer bra instead.
One more tip: when fitting a bra, don’t forget to move. Try to walk, bend over, jump to see how you feel about the bra and how your breasts look after such motion. Notice, if the band stays at the same position afterwards, and in case it doesn’t, choose a smaller bra.
To sum up, every woman must remember that the proper bra fitting ensures that your breasts look as sexy, as they can be. Learn the rules of bra fitting, and forget about shoulder pain, unaesthetic looks and other problems. Comfort and confidence are the only things you must feel.
