Sounds real dramatic? Doesn’t it??
Like really how could a bra from VS cause anyone any real issue other than lifting those girls “Upppp Where They Beeelong… ” Right?
Let me let you in on a very very super special secret… Shhh lean closer girl… Lean…
Ok. Here it is…
More than half the women in your immediate circle are wearing the perfectly gorgeous incorrectly sized bra.
Yes even the one that went to the aforementioned VS, Macy’s, Fredericks of Hollywood…. All of them I just named.
Think about this.
1) Only some stores may have even properly trained their employees how to correctly size and fit a bra
2) Then there’s…Having the issue of you being sized by someone who could care less whether the measurement they haphazardly took was really correct or not. Most times if your girls had additional letters and numbers past 32B, the associate was already rolling her eyes because that meant s/he was actually going to have to work for you to get a proper sizing. (Even if the store didnt carry ya size… Sister girl may have took time to fit you so you would know your size…
Because let’s face… Raise ya hand if you know how to size yourself for a good bra fit…
Ok so if you can’t that information is needed so you can find good bras that fit…
3 Keys things to look for to check fit
-Does your straps slide down and go every which way except for staying in place?
-Can you hook both the 1st & 3rd row of closures in the back? This looks different from company to company and throughout the various sizing option
-Note what happens when you lift your arms above your head
Did it lift up completely?
Did it stay in place?
Those a just a few things to check for. There are many more but this is a great start.
Now how your bra disrupts ya health…
Common Issues caused by wearing a bra that is too small:
* Scarring- Due to the straps or other parts digging into your skin causing compression scarring
*Infections due to constant scaring from bining and materials rubbing skin raw
*Infections within the body wear your overall health down over time.
*Rudeness… Simply because who can be jovial and skippin when ya bra slicing all ya sides up… Or you have to play catch woth ya straps all day long.
Stop the madness…
Not only that but I know how much cute bras, waistrainers and all those other contraptions cost. And to spend all your life wearing the wrong size and going thru pains just to put your girls in a cute carrier… And you getting wounds and stuff…
There are also options if you do not wearing bras.
Because we ALLL know once we hit the door from a long day… That thing ia the best frisbee.
Walking around unbridled bout the chest is good for you.
If your bra is leaving you with “war wounds” , it’s generally not a good fit.
If ya bra doesn’t fit, you musta quit. Truly there are sooo many different bra brands that cater to everything from training bras to fancy sling shots. You can be supported and cute. You do NOT have to settle on the largest size a company may offer. Keep looking.
Wearing a bra that has been handed down til the elastic has long ago gave up is so not cute.
Please go to a REAL lingerie department or a seamstress midweek for a proper fitting.
Lingerie is supposed to to handwashed. Never machine dried just airdried flat.
Or grab a lingerie ball or bag to wash your delicates in…
