It’s bad enough you have to worry about your clothes looking good on you and fitting right, but your underwear too? Yeah they matter too, because they can be the reason why an entirely beautiful outfit can look draggy, or spoil your entire day with discomfort. When you’re wearing a decent bra, it helps make all of your clothes look good. So in case you have been experiencing certain discomforts in the bra area, here are signs your bra size may be the issue:


Your straps keep falling down

First, tighten them a bit. They might have stretched out in the wash. If your straps keep slipping even after you adjust them, they aren’t being supportive and you should try going down a band size.

You wear your bra on the last hook

You should feel most comfortable on the middle hook. That way, when your bra stretches over time, you can tighten it. If it’s already too loose, go down a band size.

Your band rides up in the back

When you stand to the side and look in the mirror, is your band even? Your band should fit firmly and horizontally across your back. If it’s riding up in the back, it’s too big. Go down a band size, like from a 36 to 34.

You have dents on your shoulders

It’s not about how heavy your boobs are. Your bra’s band isn’t giving you the support it should, so your straps are taking the slack and digging into your shoulders. Try a smaller band size.

The underwire in your bra pokes you

Don’t think all underwire is uncomfortable. Go up a cup size to keep it from digging into your skin.

You have back bulge

Despite the popular nickname, it’s not back fat — it’s literally just your bra being too tight and squeezing your skin. Your band is probably too small.

You neck or back hurts

You may not be getting the right support from your bra because it’s the wrong size. Find a lingerie specialist in your area, or hit up a department store, and go get sized properly. It’s free, and worth the trouble so you’ll feel great in your bra.
