Five Signs You’re Wearing the Wrong Size Bra

September 11th, 2015

If you’ve started reading this article, you must have a suspicion that the bra you’re currently wearing could fit a little better.  Chances are, you’re right.  Studies have shown that up to 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.   You may be thinking if you’ve been measured for a bra once before then you’re sitting pretty but in reality, a woman’s body shape is constantly fluctuating, so chances are you may need a different size now to the one you did a few years ago.  If you notice any of the following signs, it’s time to book a lingerie fitting session.


1. The band rides up your back

The band at the back of your bra, whether it’s on the first or last hook, provides 80% of support.  If it doesn’t sit in the middle of your back then the bra you’re wearing is too loose and you may need to replace it.  It’s a good idea to get fitted by a professional to see whether you need to go down a back size (which could mean an increase in cup size!), or if your current bra has just lost its shape over time.

2. You can’t breathe

While it’s key to make sure your bra isn’t too loose, if your bra is too tight you’re not getting the correct support either.  To know you have the correct fit, you should be able to comfortably fit two fingers between your back and the strap while you’re wearing the bra (This may require some contortion!).

3. The wire in the middle isn’t flat against your chest

The wire between your breasts should be flush with your chest, without digging in or gaping.  This will ensure the breast is fully supported on all sides.  If the wire gapes at the front then your cup size is too small and you may need to increase it

4. Seeing Double

If your breasts spill out over the top of your cup then you should increase your cup size.  Don’t fall into the trap of thinking a cup size “sounds” too big – the right size will make you look more streamline and less like you’re busting out of your clothes (No pun intended!)

5. Wrinkles

This point has nothing to do with age.  If the cups of your bra wrinkle or sit out from your breasts while you’re wearing it then the cups are too large. Reduce your cup size to ensure that they fit snugly to your body and offer the best support.


If any of these points ring a bell, it’s definitely time to get fitted for a new bra.  In our Lingerie Department, you can drop in for a free bra fitting at any stage, with no appointment needed!  If you’re confident of your fit, why not treat yourself to something new and browse our lingerie brands or check out Triumph’s tips for caring for your lingerie.
