Common Bra Problems and Solutions

Managing Director Kate Kikano and her team of professional bra fitters at TKD Lingerie in Town Centre Jumeirah can tell at a glance whether a customer is wearing the correct size and style bra for her shape.  Inadequate advice on fittings, weight gain and loss, pregnancy, and the passage of time all have an impact on a woman's bust size.  However in many case women are wearing the same size they wore as teenagers and have failed to notice the changes in their size or appearance.

Kate explains, “There are many clues that your bra is not the correct size. If you are unsure what the problem is come and see our friendly, expert bra fitters at TKD Lingerie and let them guide you to the perfect fit.”

Kate and her team, share the most common problems they encounter and offer their top tips to make sure you are getting the support you need as well as making the most of your figure.  Here are a few suggestions when you next take a look at yourself in the mirror.

Remember that bras have a shelf life! If you have been wearing the same bra regularly for over a year, it will lose its elasticity and support as the fabric becomes stretched and thin. Time to come shopping and replenish your underwear drawer!

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

Front of the bra is lifted off your chest
• Likely the cup is too small and your breasts are pushing the wire out
• We would recommend a larger cup size

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

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

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 creating the unsightly “four boob” look
• We would recommend a larger cup size

Gaping and wrinkling of the cup
• Due to excess fabric if the cup size is too big
• We would recommend a smaller cup size

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
• You can also try light padding on the smaller side if the size difference is noticeable under clothing

Changes due to weight loss
• If your back size decreases, your cup size may need to increase.
