How Do I Know When My Bra Does Not Fit Properly? [+]

There are ways to know that your bra sizing is incorrect. Some immediate signs are:

  1. Rising up in the back: When your bra rises up in the back, this means it is not supporting the weight of your bust.
  2. Shoulder Pulling: If you find yourself leaning or hunching forward regularly or if your shoulders are strained from pulling forward, chances are your bra is not the right size for your bust.
  3. Falling Breasts: Your breasts are not being properly supported if they do not sit upright in a central position on your chest.
  4. Falling Straps: If your straps slide down your shoulders or leave red marks in your flesh, your bra is probably too big around the bust and too small in the cup area.

What's the difference between a sports bra and a regular bra? [+]

A sports bra is basically cotton plus lycra, or a moisture-wicking fabric, and it has no hooks, adjustable straps, or underwire. It basically holds breasts flat to one's chest so that nothing moves while you move, lol.

A regular bra has hooks, lace or fancy details, adjustable straps, and often has underwire, padding, and other forms of support. The function is to lift, separate, and support in non-athletic endeavors.

DO Thoroughly rinse your suit in fresh, cool water immediately after use.

  • Hang your suit to dry naturally after use.
  • Always follow the manufacturer's care instructions on the garment label.


  • Wash your suit using soap or detergent.
  • Dry your suit in direct sunlight, on a radiator or in a tumble dryer.
  • Roll your suit in a towel after use. This retains any remaining heat and chemicals in close contact with the fabric, which can accelerate deterioration.


  • Sun creams and lotions coming into contact with your suit.
  • Rough surfaces which could snag or tear the fabric.
