Fit Issues and Solutions
by Shopify API on Apr 29, 2021
Tighten the straps. Seems obvious, but as we wear a bra, the straps start to stretch out. We recommend tightening your straps every other month.
If that doesn’t work, it might be time to explore a different bra style. Usually Full Coverage, Demi, and Convertible bras have the narrowest set straps which help to keep them on your shoulders. Balconette and Plunge bras tend to have wider set straps, so if you have narrow or sloping shoulders, the strap issue can be exaggerated with these styles.
2. Wire Sits on Breasts
It’s time to buy a smaller band size so that you have a snug fit. Remember, when you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: if you’re a 36C, your tighter band would be 34D . For more info, review the size chart.
You’ll know you’re in the right band size when you can slip two fingers underneath the back of the band. The band should be snug on the loosest hook, so when your bra stretches out you can continue to tighten it.
3. Straps Digging In
The straps should not be doing the heavy lifting. The bra band should be doing most of the work. Chances are, your band is too big or has stretched out to the point that you’re not getting the support you deserve. Try buying one band size smaller.
Remember: When you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: If you’re 36C your tighter band would be 34D. For more info review the size chart.
Another tip for anyone over a D cup is to buy a style with narrower straps. These styles have straps that are centered on your shoulder so that the weight of the breast is evenly distributed. We recommend Full Coverage.
