Ensure that you are wearing the correct band and cup size.

Minimize your bust

Once you know your correct size, you should invest in a minimizer bra, the style redistributes your breast tissue in a way that your breasts appear smaller.

Rather than flattening your bust, a minimizer will spread your breasts out and make you look one to two cup sizes smaller.

When buying a minimizer bra, you must ensure it is in your measured cup size, you don’t need to wear a smaller size in a minimizing bra
Minimizer bras are a must for women with a large bust who want to wear front button-down blouses without gaping, they are also great with turtlenecks, which can make your bust appear larger.

A good minimizer bra is a versatile wardrobe staple.

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 8 Breast Enhancing Bras

How to Make Breasts Look Bigger

Sometimes, you just want a little extra boost to maximize what you’ve got.

We all remember the teenage trick of “stuffing or padding your bra with tissues or socks!”

If you want to make your breasts look bigger, there are now much more sophisticated lingerie and prosthetic solutions.

The easiest and most convenient way to appear to have a larger bust is a padded bra.

There are a few different types of padded bras, that all have different functions.
A bra with moulded or contour padding has foam pads that are built into the bra cup itself.

These pads are often graduated for subtle, natural breast enhancement.

Contour padding is a common feature of a moulded T-shirt bra.
Bras with push-up pads sometimes known as chicken fillets or bump pads are designed to lift the breast from the bottom and are usually removable

Push up bras create a more defined cleavage as well as adding to your bust size and are a good choice if you don’t want to wear a padded bra all the time.

Some bras, combine contour padding with push-up cookies or chicken fillets so that you can customize how much padding you’d like.

Bra Accessories for Bigger Breasts

Another way to make your bust look larger without surgery is with bra accessories.

Removable breast inserts let you turn any bra into a push up bra, expanding your bra shopping choices. They are also great for woman with uneven breasts, to help them look more even, another advantage of separate bra padding or inserts is that they are often made out of products like silicone, that can appear smoother and less noticeable than regular padding.

More Tips and Tricks

All of these items will give you the appearance of larger breasts that are natural looking and not over the top.

Some women think that wearing a larger cup size bra will help make their bust appear bigger – this is not true. it will just make you look sloppy.

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 7 Underwire Bra Pain

A painful underwire is one of the most common bra complaints.

A lot of women believe they can’t be comfortable wearing a bra with an underwire.

The good news is that there is a solution to this problem!
If you are wearing the right size, an underwire bra should be perfectly comfortable.

The underwire should surround the whole breast and lie flat against your side without pinching or poking. If you are spilling out of the sides or under the bra, then the cup size is too small.

Don’t Let Your Cups Runneth Over

To ensure that your wires sit comfortably you must ensure that you are wearing the correct bra size, to do this, either measure yourself or get professionally fitted to find your correct bra size.

Check out the very simple directions for measuring your cup size on http://www.lindasonline.com/bra-fitting-calculator

Because the cup size is harder to measure than the band size, you may have to go up or down a size after trying on your correctly measured size.

Don’t worry about having a “normal” bra cup size!

Its better to feel comfortable and look great in a larger cup size than torture yourself in a size you want to be.
After you’ve measured yourself for the correct size, you should adjust your breasts so that all of your breast tissue is inside of the wire.

Here’s a little trick to ensure your breasts sit where they should be – after you put on your bra, lean forward and wiggle a little. It sounds silly, but it works!

Another method is simply to scoop the breast into the wire with the opposite hand.

When Not to Wear an Underwire bra

While most women can wear an underwire bra comfortably, there are a few exceptions.

If you are wearing the correct size bra, and still have underwire pain, it’s possible that you may have a high rib cage. Luckily, there are plenty of great underwire – free bras available.

There are also times in a woman’s life when an underwire free bra is best.

It’s recommend that soft cup bras for pregnant women and women who are undergoing surgery are best.

Some medical conditions, like hiatal hernias, make underwire uncomfortable as well.

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 6 – Wrinkled or Gaping Bra Cups

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 6 – Wrinkled or Gaping Bra Cups

Is there a gap at the top of your bra cups?

Does the fabric at the top of the cups wrinkle gape or not lie flat?

There are two possible reasons for this bra issue. Keep reading and you’ll soon have a bra that lies perfectly against your bust.

Check Your Cup Size

Often, a gap at the top of the cup is the result of wearing a cup size that is too large.

Ensure you’ve adjusted your breast so that it is centred in the cup.

If you have more room in the cup, you should try going down one cup size. If you are an A cup and you have gaping or wrinkles – try a slightly smaller AA cup bra.
If the bra cup used to fit and you haven’t lost any weight, your bra may be too old and stretched. This is more common in stretch cup bras, as they can stretch or lose their shape over time.

Flatter Your Figure – Forget Full Coverage

Another reason your bra could be gaping or wrinkling at the top is that your bra might not be the right style or shape for your breasts.  are

Every woman’s body is different, so even a bra in the right size may not fit well if it is not suited to your breast shape. Many women have breasts that are fuller at the bottom than the top, or are teardrop in shape.

Balcony bras and demi bras are more suited to this body type than full-coverage bras.

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 5 – Solutions for Falling Out of Your Bra


Falling out of bra

Bra-blems (Problems with bras) Part 5 –  Solutions for Falling Out of Your Bra

Do you breasts fall out from underneath your underwire when you run or lift your arms, or even during the day? This is a sure sign that your bra does not fit you properly.

Correct Your Fit

In order for your bra to stay put and support your boobs, the band needs to be snug.

An easy way to check your fit, try putting a finger under the bra band, between the breasts.

If you can fit two fingers or more under the band, it’s definitely too loose.

Many women wear a larger band size than they should because they think a looser band will be more comfortable or prevent back fat.

In reality, a tighter band will give you more support and prevent pain in your shoulders and back.

Trust me – you’ll look and feel much better!
An important bra fitting tip is that the size of the cup will differ depending on the band size.

For example, the cup of a 36D bra is not the same size as a 34D bra they don’t have the same amount of room in the cup.

If you want to try a smaller band size, you will also have to increase the cup size. An example is, if you are wear a 36D bra and your breasts fall out of the bottom of the cup, you should try a 34DD instead.
If your bra band is more than one size too big, or if you have trouble with your cup size as well, we recommend remeasuring yourself. You can find directions for measuring your bra size at  http://www.lindasonline.com/bra-fitting-calculator

Bra care is essential

If you’re falling out of a bra that used to be a good fit, it might need to be replaced as it is too old.

After washing over time, the elastic in a bra band can stretch and will no longer fit.

If its too loose on the tightest hook, it’s time to get rid of it!

Even the most expensive bras won’t last forever, so you will need to check your fit often and chuck out bras that aren’t providing the support you need.

Ensure you extend the life of your bras by hand-washing them or putting them in a lingerie bag before chucking in the washing machine, and most companies suggest that you never put your bra in the dryer!
