Reasons Why You Should Dump Your Tight Bra Right Away

Did you know? Your bra leaving you with wounds is not really a sign of how much it loves you! In fact, it’s the opposite. We’ve all been through the trauma of those nasty red marks our tight bra straps leave behind. It is for sure not a pretty sight, is it?

Here a couple of super easy tips, that’ll put an end to those ugly red marks:

  1. If your straps are digging in you clearly need to adjust your strap.
  2. Loosen the strap to ensure you have them at a place where one finger can slip through easily to get the perfect strap tightness.
  3. Also, tighten your bra straps very 10 wears to make sure they are just right.

Yup, that’s all it takes – sounds too good to be true? Try it out and you’ll see the difference.
Here a quick bra fact is thrown in for good measure – Your straps do not support your breasts. So, please don’t tighten them in order to lift your bust. Feel like your bra doesn’t quite sit right on your frame? Get a bra fit test done – it might be time for a new bra.

Dangers of wearing a tight bra

Sore Neck

One of the main problems, when your bra is too tight, is the fact that it puts extra strain on your muscles. You could find that you start aching on a daily basis. The reason is clear. If you’re not wearing the right size, the support you get is not coming from the muscles in your chest.


This should come as no big surprise. When you’re wearing something that’s too small for you, it will dig into your skin and make you feel uncomfortable throughout the day. That could quickly impact your life and make day-to-day activities difficult.

Skin Damage

Have you ever thought of the impact that your bra could be having on your skin? When your bra is too tight, it pushes and presses into your skin. That could mean dangerous things for you in the long run. For example, when you take your bra off, you will most likely see that there are some pinkish lines or even scratch-like marks. These are the signs that your bra is far too tight. You need to take action fast.

Breast tenderness

While there could be an array of reasons for this, it pays to check out whether your bra has anything to do with it. Often enough, women get so used to wearing the same size that they never even think to do something about it. That is a mistake. When you’re wearing the wrong bra size, it can put undue pressure on your breast area and means that you might damage the tissue.

Breast chafing

Finally, one of the most obvious signs that you might notice first is that your skin is chafing and you feel uncomfortable. When that happens, you need to get rid of the old bras that you have and change your ways.
