Common Bra Fitting Problems And Solutions

Here are some common problems related to the fitting of your bra, and the solutions to them.


The underband or the wings of your bra goes write around your breasts and supports your breasts from below. Check out the bra anatomy here. The underband should fit snugly and lie flat against your breast-bone. High support bras have broad underband and come with more than three hooks and eye closure.

  • If your underband is digging into your flesh leaving impressions on them, you should try going up a size.
  • If your band keeps riding up, you are probably wearing a loose fitting bra and should go down a size


The underwire of a bra offers lift, shape, and support, especially for women who have larger breasts. Read more about underwire of a bra here. Many women shy away from underwire because they feel it hurts them and pricks them. Below are two issues of underwire.

  • If the underwires of your bra are digging into your armpit, you are wearing a smaller cup than you actually require and get a larger cup size.
  • If the gore of the bra is standing away from your sternum you are probably wearing a cup larger than you require, and try a smaller cup size instead.
