Your bra straps keeping falling down OR digging in. First and foremost, bra straps do not hold up your breasts, they are simply there to make wearing a bra more supported and comfortable. So if your bra straps keep falling down, even after tightening them up to a ‘two finger tension’...honey you're in a cup size too large! Try going down 👇 a size. If your straps keep digging into your shoulders and causing you discomfort then take that thing off! These are signs your straps are doing ALL the work and desperately trying to hold your boobs up, you're likely to be in a band size too large 😨
Sick of straps? Try our Luxe Strapless for the ultimate lift!
Your bra band rides up in the back. No way hosay should your back band ride up, take a look in the mirror and see if your back band is laying firmly and horizontally across your back? If it isn't then it's not right. Try going down a size...thank us later...🙌
You have spillover...the Mitchell brothers on our chest is enough, we certainly don't want the entire family popping out over the top, bottom and sides of the cups. If you have the dreaded quad boob 🍉🍉🍉🍉 it's time to go up a cup size.
If your underwire is sitting away from your chest....the middle piece between the cups should sit flat on your rib cage and underneath the breasts. You should be able to lift your arms over your head without the underwire rising up. Go on give a try and see! 🙋🙋

If you're wearing your NEW bra on the last hook then something is wrong. You should feel most comfortable on the middle hook but start wearing it on the first. That way, when your bra stretches over time, you can tighten it. If it's already too loose, go down a band size.
If you're in constant pain you may not be getting the right support from your bra.
