Tips to Fix the Most Common Bra Issues

If you regularly wear a bra, you know they are a necessary evil. The right bra offers quality support and can work to enhance your natural assets. Unfortunately, if your bra doesn’t fit properly or is another issue, it can be extremely uncomfortable.

While there is no rule that states you must wear a bra, some people feel awkward without them. Because of this, if you are dealing with frustrations like “my bra falls off” or bunching and pinching when you put it on, it’s time to keep reading. Below you can find some of the most common issues you may experience with your bra and what you can do to eliminate them, once and for all.  

Straps Fall Down

One of the most common bra issues you may experience is falling straps. There isn’t anything quite as annoying as feeling the strap slide down your arm when you are trying to do something. Usually, the solution for this issue is simple, just tighten the problem strap. However, over time, your bra can stretch. If your bra straps are as tight as they can go, and they still slip off your shoulder, chances are it is time to invest in a new one.

The Bra Leaves Red Marks on Your Skin

Even though bras can be annoying at times, they should never cause pain. If you notice red marks on your skin after wearing a bra, it is typically a sign it is much too tight. If the red marks are only seen on your shoulders because of the straps, try to loosen the band slightly. Usually, the band provides all the support, and if it is too loose, you may be making the straps tighter to help compensate. If this doesn’t solve the issue, it may be time to purchase a new bra with a bigger band rather than a larger cup size.

The Back of the Bra Rides Up

The band of your bra should sit parallel to the floor all around your body. If it is not in this position, and if you notice it moving higher, the fit Is the problem. There’s a good chance the bra is too large.

As you can see, more than a few issues may occur with your bra and make it uncomfortable. Knowing what these issues are can help you know what to do to fix them. In some cases, purchasing a new bra that fits you well is the best option.
