Is your bra too tight or too loose? Confused about size? We'll tell you what to watch out for!

Finding the right bra size can be tricky! The clasp digging into your back, the strap squeezing your chest or you simply not feeling supported, all point to you wearing an ill fitted bra.

Finding the right bra size can be tricky! The clasp digging into your back, the strap squeezing your chest or you simply not feeling supported, all point to you wearing an ill fitted bra. While a loose bra can lack the much-needed support, a tight one can limit your upper body movement, restrain your breasts and cause soreness.

We’ve rounded up some signs for you to watch out for, so you finally understand when something is not the right ‘fit.’

1) It causes skin irritation

If the bra is too tight, the shoulder straps and back strap may dig into your skin and cause irritation and redness. When the tight bra rubs against the skin due to movement, it can cause excess sweating, irritation and inflammation of hair follicles. So, if it bothers you so much, it’s definitely not the one for you.

2) If you are constantly adjusting

If you find yourself adjusting the straps or band of the bra constantly, we can assure you that either the bra is not made for you or has become worn out and needs to be replaced stat!

3) Develop acid reflux frequently

Yes, there is a chance that your tight bra may be the cause behind your constant acidity. Tightness on the abdomen can increase intra-abdominal pressure to the point that you experience acid reflux and other digestive issues.

4) You are spilling out of the cups

Sometimes, when you buy a new bra after trying it out, the fit may seem perfect. But over the course of time, you may feel your breasts spilling out of the cup due to movement and other activities. This implies that the band of the bra may be fine, but the cup is a size too small.

5) Your upper body hurts

Wearing an ill fitted bra can also lead to severe body ache, especially in your shoulders and back. Sometimes, to compensate for a very loose bra, you try to adjust by tightening the shoulder straps which puts a lot of pressure on your shoulder and back. So, make sure you don’t cross the fine line between a ‘good’ and a ‘tight’ fit.

Finding the correct bra size may be time consuming but trust us when we say that a well fitted bra is worth all that effort.
