You always want to make sure your breasts sit comfortably in your cup, so cup overflow is not something that you should be experiencing in a properly fitting bra! If you are having this issue, you need to go up a cup size. We actually offer half sizes in some of our bra styles, so if you feel like going up one whole cup size is too much, try a half size.
Most of the time when you experience side overflow the band is too tight. Make sure you are wearing your bra on the loosest hook, if you are and you still have that side overflow then we should move up in the band.
Wire Sits on Breasts
If you find that your wire rides up and sits on your breasts, that is usually a sign that your band is too big. We want your band to be a little more snug so it stays in one place.
Straps Digging in
Bra straps digging into your shoulders can be very uncomfortable! First thing you want to do is check that your straps are adjusted correctly. If you have adjusted the straps and they are still uncomfortable, it might be that the band too small. The majority your support should be coming from your band not the straps. If the band is too small, it will not give you the proper support.
Slipping straps is usually due to a fit issue in the band or cups. If both your band and cups feel like they fit properly you might need to try a different style of bra. A great example is our Lace Balconette Bra that has convertible straps so you can wear the straps in a crisscross style to avoid slippage.
If you cups are gapping that's typically a sign that we need to go down in the cup for you. You will know if your cup is gapping if there is empty space at the top of your cup or it seems hallow.
