Bra Mistakes (and how to fix them)
We have a love and hate relationship with our boobs. They’re beautiful and we love them – we wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world, but sometimes, they’re just straight up uncooperative. They don’t like to nestle calmly in your bra when you’re speed walking down the street or dancing at a party – instead, your skin gets irritated, you’re constantly pulling up straps, or fidgeting uncomfortably. But don’t worry, your lovely lady lumps aren’t the issue – you’ve just been buying the wrong bra your whole life! Eliminate all those woes by learning these ultimate bra mistake-fixers.
1. Breaking a strap on the street.
This is the worst. You have to do some terrible DIY tie job that ends up unraveling, or you just have one saggy, lone boob swaying in a loose cup while they other is suspended normally. A racer back bra solves this, or you might be tightening your straps too much to perk your girls up. You can use a paperclip to make a racerback out of a normal bra as a hack!
2. Straps that are always showing or slipping off.
This sucks if you want to wear a halter or tube top, but still need support. Bandeaus suck for anyone that’s not an A cup, but there are actually supportive strapless bras, or ones that have a halter shape to them that still provide support and are comfortable. Silicon straps can also keep everything in place, and add support.
3. Boob chafing or sweating.
In the summer especially, this is a nightmare. To avoid, stick to light, breathable fabrics, like cotton and lace, which are moisture-wicking. Stay away from underwire if your pain is under the boob.
