Let’s learn how to wear bra step by step!

#1 Lean On:

The best body posture when wearing a bra is to lean forward. This allows your breasts to naturally settle and fit into the bra cups.  After that, you can straighten up, followed by a slight adjustment of the breasts to fill the cups fully and settle down properly.

#2 Hook On:

A common mistake that a lot of women make is of hooking just a single clasp. This gives you partial support and results in aches and rashes. You should always all the bra clasps and make sure it’s neither too tight nor too loose. The bra band should sit flat on the back, parallel to the ground, without riding up.

#3 Strap On:

The bra straps play a vital role in providing the much-needed support and lift. You should always ensure the straps are adjusted according to your shoulder.  If the straps are too tight, they may result in severe back & shoulder aches. Similarly, if they are too loose, they may annoy you by constantly falling off your shoulders. For a comfortable fit, you should be able to glide 2 fingers easily underneath the band.

#4 Gentle Lift:

Underwired bras give your breasts a gentle lift, making them look rounder and fuller. However, for desired results, you should make sure that the underwires fit you correctly. The centre gore should lie flat at the center and the underwires should comfortably sit right under your breasts, without digging into the skin. The underwired cups will only lift your breast tissues if they fit you correctly or else they will make you uncomfortable and uneasy. Otherwise they will make you uncomfortable and uneasy.

Most women who complaint about wearing a bra or have back pain & discomfort, probably do so because they aren’t wearing the right size or their bra properly. By ensuring these simple steps you can be saved from those unwanted aches & pains.
