Your bra won’t fit correctly if you have plus size bra fit problems. These problems typically are either you are wearing the wrong bra size or the wrong style for your figure. For example, if the band is digging into your rib cage you might need a larger size band size. However, if your problem is a sagging bust line, you might be wearing the right size; but, you just need to avoid styles with a super stretchy back or stretchy straps. Your bra might feel comfortable; but, it doesn’t provide the support you need.
Use a bra calculator to find out your correct bra size. Once you know your correct size, you can either purchase your bra online, or you can purchase your new bra in a retail store. Wherever you choose to purchase your bra, be sure to first check out the common bra fit problems and get an understanding of the specific solutions that you should consider.
