COMMON PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS

FOR BRA FITTING

There are many clues that your bra is not the correct size. If you are unsure what the whether your bra is fitting correctly contact our expert bra fitters at TKD Lingerie and let them guide you to the perfect fit.

1

Back of the bra is riding up

  • Usually means the band is too loose and the weight of your breasts is causing the back of the bra to ride up
  • We would recommend a smaller back size

2

Front of the bra is lifted off
your chest

  • It is likely the cup is too small and your breasts are pushing the wire out
  • We would recommend a larger cup size

3

Underwire digs in

  • If the underwire digs in or pinches the breast tissue, this is a sign the cup is too small
  • We would recommend a larger cup size

4

Shoulder straps dig in

  • If the underband is too big and not giving you enough support, the weight of your breasts pull the bra down causing the shoulder straps to dig in
  • We would recommend a smaller back size

5

Bulging out of the cup

  • This happens when the bust is not fully encased in the cup and the breast tissue spills out of the front and/or under the arm
  • We would recommend a larger cup size

6

Gaping and Wrinkling of the Cup

  • This occurs due to excess fabric if the cup size is too big
  • We would recommend a smaller back size

7

Bra Moving when Arms are Raised

  • If your breasts spill out of the cup when you raise your arms it could be that your underband size is too big and/or your cup size is too small
  • We would recommend trying a smaller back size first and then if needed, go up a cup size

Different Sized Breasts

  • Many women have one breast slightly bigger than the other
  • Always fit the larger breast and tighten the strap for the other
  • Look for styles that have some stretch in the top of the cup
  • You can also try light padding on the smaller side if the size difference is noticeable under clothing
