Whether it’s a padded bra or a sports bra, there’s a question you always need to address- “Are you wearing it right?”
‘Cause even the right size bra will make you feel uncomfortable and won’t provide adequate support if worn incorrectly. So, join us, ladies, as we now tell you how to correctly wear a bra!
#1 Lean Forward:
It’s best to lean forward while slipping into your bra. Because this gives your breasts the space to settle into the cups naturally. If you find that even after doing this there’s some spillage, adjust the displaced breast tissues and carefully place them inside your bra cup.
#2 Hook It On Right:
Moving on the hooks, make sure you clasp all of ‘em. Hooking just one gives only partial support your bust deserves. Also, make sure the back band isn’t riding up and stays parallel to the ground. Additionally, as a thumb rule make sure that you start with the loosest hook when you purchase a new bra and eventually, move inward. This is because, over its lifetime, the fabric of your bra stretches out.
#3 Strap It On:
We often receive queries from women asking why their straps dig into their shoulder and leave marks. Ideally, this isn’t supposed to happen. Adjust the strap using the slider and make sure the slider stays on the top of your shoulder.
#4 Use this checklist:
After having done all this, there are three easy steps to check if your bra fits right
- Try sliding two fingers under the strap and back band.
- Check if the underwire is under the bust and not on it.
- See if the center gore sits flat against your chest.
