bra cup too big at top

Worried that your bra cup is too big? A massive amount of women walk around all day wearing the incorrect bra size. You could be one of them.

If you need to know the truth, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the red flags to watch out for:

1.  You’re always re-adjusting

Do you feel like your breasts are moving around inside your cups? It can be quite an unsettling thing. If you constantly have to reach into the cups and scoop up your boobs to feel comfortable, that’s a major red flag. The whole notion of a bra is that it should support you and cup your breasts perfectly. If it’s not doing the job, it could be time to say goodbye. Forever.

2.  You feel the ‘bounce’

How does your bra feel when you’re walking around? It might sound like a weird question but you need to think about it for a moment. When your bra cup is too big, you will find that your breasts actually bounce around in the cups as you walk. The bra band will likely stay in the same position. However, your breasts will move up and around inside the cups. That’s a sign that you’ve got your cup size all wrong. It’s definitely too big.

3.  The cups wrinkle up

If you have a bra that has a delicate or light fabric, here’s a red flag that you don’t want to ignore. When you take off your lingerie at the end of the day, take a quick look at it. If the cups of your bra are wrinkled up, you might well have cause for concern. The reason that your bra cups are wrinkled is because they are too loose. Don’t ignore the problem. It’s best to book a fitting as soon as possible.

4.  You notice a gap at the top of the cups

Of course, one of the most obvious signs you will see when your bra cup is too big is that there’s a gap at the top of each cup. When you’re wearing just your bra, look directly down at your breasts. If you can see space above each of them, the bra is most certainly too large for what you need. Your boobs should sit perfectly in each cup. If you find that there is a load of excess space, you might need to go down a size or two.

5.  You’re not getting support

Do you feel as though your bra offers you the right level of support? If the answer is no, you might want to rethink your bra size. Often enough, women don’t realize the impact the sight cup size can have on how a bra fits and supports them. When the size is too large, you will not benefits from any of the support the bra should give you. If you feel that your breasts are not secure, you might want to check this out.

6.  You always fasten your bra on the tightest hook

How do you do your bra up? If you always use the very last hook on the clasp, something is amiss. You shouldn’t need to use this hook most of the time. The chances are that you’re having to make your bra tighter because it’s too large for you. The problem may be both the band and the cup size. When you notice this pattern, you need to do something about it. Go get fitted and see if you’re wearing the right size.

7.  You never quite feel comfortable

If you’re always uncomfortable in the bra that you wear, that is a huge problem. Your lingerie is supposed to make you feel cozy and supported. If it’s not giving you what you need, then  the likelihood is that you need to change the bra that you tend to wear. It’s that simple. Wearing the wrong cup size may not seem like a huge deal, but you deserve better. Make a positive change today and start feeling more supported.
