Bra-Blems: Common Bra Problems and How to Fix Them9:00 AM
After chatting with Third Love I decided to see what some of the common Bra-blems were within my inner circle and even in my own closet and these were the results:
- loose straps
- improper fit
- poking wires
- loose bands/ cups
- lack of stylish options in larger sizes (for my more blessed counterparts)
- not enough support
If you have a shaky foundation, that slinky dress you love with the deep plunge neckline might not be the best choice for a night out, or in the most severe situations....ever, but never fear there are real solutions to your Bra-blems that can make the bra the least of your worries! So let's start with the basics, how do you wear your bra? Your bra should fit snugly on the loosest setting with enough room to slip about two fingers in. This was something new that I learned because I love to wear my bands on the tightest setting, the only issue with that is bras stretch out over time causing misshaped bands.
IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR STRAPS:
IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS "STAYING PUT":
Let's jump back to those pesky poking wires. The number one reasons that your wires are poking out is due to you wearing a bra with a band size that is too large. When a bra band is snug there is not that much motion compared to when the bra band is loose the underwire is able to move and rub against the fabric encasing it, eventually breaking free to torture you. Improper laundering of lingerie can also cause poking wires due to the fact that lingerie should be washed in a special bag ( I am guilty of just throwing everything in the wash together) with the hooks and eyes attached and never put in the dryer!
Overall, the game plan to solving your Bra-blems and securing the foundation of your outfit is pretty simple as long as you have the right knowledge in order to make the best personal purchase.
