Why does my bra cut into my side?

A too-tight band size causes the wires to stretch too far into the armpit (middle). A too-loose band size causes the wire to press slightly on the breast tissue (right). The cup is too small, causing the underwire to sit on and dig into the breast tissue (right).

Why does my bra dig into my sternum?

If the centre wires are digging into your chest between your boobs, there’s a very good chance that the cups of your bra are too big. If the wires are digging into your boobs and not touching the space between them at all, the cups could be too small or they could be the wrong shape for your body.

Why do I have to keep pulling my bra down?

This can be from bra age— elastic wears out and loses its stretchy nature over time, leaving the band stretched out— or the wrong bra size. Try a new bra in the same size, making sure to lean over and pull your breast tissue into the cups.

What can you wear instead of a bra?

  • Nursing tank tops.
  • Backless bras.

  • Silicone covers.
  • Gel inserts.
  • Breast lifting tape.

Why does my bra not lay flat?

If the bra does not sit flat on the chest then it means the bra could be too small in the cups. If your cup size is too small, then it is impossible for the underwire to lie flat against your chest. Instead, the wire sits on top of your breast tissue and the centre panel will not lie flat against your chest wall.

What does it mean if bra is riding up?

If the back of your bra band is riding up and sitting too high on your back then the back band is either too tight/small or too loose/large. The reason this happens is because the weight of the breasts is pulling down on the cups and straps and lifting the back upwards.
