I’m sure you’re aware of the benefits to wearing the correct size underwear – the difference it can make to your figure (it can make you look slimmer) and how well clothes fit you.
You’re also probably aware of what happens if you don’t wear the right size bra – the bad posture, the terrible back ache, and the ill-fitting clothes.

6 signs that you are wearing the wrong bra size
1/ The cups of your bra ride up when you reach up
If this happens then the back measurement is too big for you. Try going down a size at the back…and if you do that, go up a cup size as well, to make sure the cup fits you the same.
2/ YOUR BRA STRAPS ARE ALWAYS FALLING DOWN. EVEN WHEN YOU TIGHTEN THEM
If the straps are falling down, it's a signal that the band is too lose so is riding up and making the straps loose. Try a smaller band size (and again, go up a cup size to make sure the cup fits you the same)
3/ the band is riding up
If the band is riding up, then you're straps are probably falling down, too. Go down a band size, and up a cup size.
4/ YOUR CUPS RIDE UP
When the cups ride up it's because the band is too loose. Go down a size in the band to make sure the bra stays put. It can also be a sign that the cups are a size too big so bare than in mind and consider experimenting with a smaller cup size too.
5/ YOUR BREASTS ARE BULGING OUT OF THE CUPS
If this is happening, either the cups are too small for you, or the band is too small. Or both! First try going up a band size, and if that doesn't solve the problem, go up a cup size.
6/ THE BRA CUPS ARE GAPING A LITTLE
This suggests that the cups are too big for you, or the band is too big. It can also indicate that you're in the wrong style of bra for your bust shape. If you think the band size is correct, go down a cups size.
If any of the above signs sound familiar to you, I highly recommend you experiment with your bra size. You can do this from the comfort of your own home, and order a selection of sizes online, or you can head to your local lingerie boutique or department store for a complimentary bra fitting service.
