If your bra feels too tight around your chest, you might need to increase your band size. If your bra feels snug under your bust, you could try an underwire that’s soft and flexible and moves with your body.
That’s not unusual, as the elastic on many bras can be harsh on the skin. Look for a bra that’s made from a breathable, light fabric all over. Whether it’s lace or cotton, there are fabrics out there that will help you avoid the burn! Make sure you check your band size as well - can you just about fit two fingers under there? If not, your bra might be a little tight under your bust. This could be pressing it hard against your skin, giving you the burning sensation.
It sounds like your straps are taking more weight than they should. It's actually the band of your bra that should be giving you the most support. Try a smaller band size and a larger cup size (go up a cup size for each band size) to make sure your bust has the right amount of support.
Some hook and eye closures are not well padded and made from a rigid metal, so you can feel them through your back strap. But there are soft clasps out there, or front fastening bras. You shouldn’t even feel the ones that are made for comfort.
Fuller bra sizes tend to vary more between brands, so it can be hard to work out why some sizes fit you while others don't. If you have extra breast tissue on the sides, it’s likely for these bras that the cup size is too small. The cup-to-cup distance may also be too narrow, so look or ask for cups that are set a little wider apart. If this all seems a little difficult to judge, it’s a good idea to have an expert fitting, as women with fuller cups often need a little extra help finding the right fit.
You can estimate your bra size by measuring under your bust for your band size. Then measuring around the fullest part of your bust and taking away your underbust measurement to get your cup size (using a conversion chart). But the true measure of your size is so much more.
When our fit experts do their fittings, it's years of experience and understanding, and the right questions about exactly what you want that give you a perfect fit. So we always recommend a personal fitting to find your true size.
It might seem like your cups are cutting into your breasts, but it's likely that your cup size is too small. Or it could be that you have fuller cups, so the cut of your bra cups is too shallow for you. Try one cup size bigger and a band size smaller. You could also try a bra with more cup coverage, like a T-shirt bra.
Funnily enough, you might suspect your band size is too small, but it’s probably too big. Your band should fit snugly on the loosest hook. The best way to test this is to put two fingers under your band, they should just fit (with the backstrap sitting low on your shoulder blades). A band that’s too big for you will ride up and create lumps where there are none!
It’s a common issue and we suggest a T-shirt bra as they have padded and moulded cups, so are good at covering and shaping your bust. And just because it’s a T-shirt bra, it doesn’t mean you won’t find a bra with gorgeous detailing and design as well.
First, try tightening your straps as they may be too loose. If you still have gaps or creasing cups, try a smaller cup size and make sure you look at the cup shape too, as this may affect your fit as well. Always ask for help with a fitting if you’re unsure, to get the most supportive and shaping bra.
To get the perfect cleavage, your push-up bra should be pushing up as well as in and it should fit beautifully. So do check your band fits closely under your bust and there are no gaps or creasing in your cups (as this means your cups are too big). You don’t want to feel uncomfortable either, so make sure your breasts don’t feel squeezed together.
Lots of women ask for this type of bra as on average, our cup sizes are getting fuller. Look for a minimizer bra as they are designed to make your bust look smaller whilst flattering your shape, and feeling lightweight and comfortable.
The world’s best-selling non wired bra, the iconic Doreen bra is loved by women the world over. Thanks to its brilliant construction, the bra offers fantastic projection and optimal support for the larger bust. Available in bra sizes ranging from a 34- 46 and cup B-J.
