Finding the right bra can be more difficult than finding the right man. The right bra can lift your mood and make you feel confident but the wrong one can cause discomfort all day. Many of you will be familiar with the pain of a strap digging into the skin or the underwire sitting too tightly on the rib cage. You could be adjusting your bra all day because the band rolls up or the strap is cutting into your skin, but it is possible to not live in such discomfort.

There is a right bra size for everyone and you only need to get measured for it. There could be many signs that you are wearing the wrong size such as the back of your bra doesn't sit level with your front, or you feel the wire cutting into your skin, or your breasts are not filling the cup or you’re spilling out, according to Better Homes and Gardens. Apart from these signs, a badly fitted bra can cause many problems like chronic pain over a period of time. Some studies have suggested that ditching the bra altogether could be the best favour you do your breasts.
