Have you been plagued by persistently slipping bra straps? Have you believed it’s because you have slope-y shoulders? Here’s the real reason why bra straps slip off…
From fifty-paces, from across the world-wide-web, and without ever having laid eyes on you – if bra straps persistently slip it is not because you have slope-y shoulders it IS because…
… the bra band you’re wearing is a size (or two, or three) too big.
Imagine slipping on a pair of shoes – oh so pretty – but a size too big. They looked and felt just fine in the shop…You can get away with one size too big, right?
But on their virgin outing that size too big has them slipping off your heels. By their third outing one size too big feels like three and you’re walking like Bambi on ice.
There’s no hope of them staying in place, and with every stride you risk popping right out of your peep-toes and leaving a shoe behind, or loosing balance & dignity all together.
The exact same thing happens with bra-straps. Wearing a band too big means straps won’t sit where they should.
With the tension needed to hold them in place missing too, as you move –and your boobs moving more than you know – the entire bra shifts up, down & around until straps wriggle right off.
And just like slipping out of a too big shoe…there’s a high risk you might pop right out of a too big bra too.
No matter how much straps are tightened to hoik things up or hold boobs down – the only solution for slipping straps or relieving pressure from shoulders (…because none of your bra support comes from the shoulder straps)…is a cup AND band-size combination exacted to your beautiful body.
Get this right and you’ll have found the holy-grail of bra-fittings.
Look at what happened to Ms J…
Having always bought her bras off the rack at her favourite high-street store – Ms J checked in for a fitting wearing her ever-faithful 38B.
Handing her something much more sensibly sized to try, I popped off to pour more bubbles and offer a moment of privacy for Ms J to feel into the properly fitting F-cup.
Returning to her side I spotted she’d snooped at the label…
“An F?!” she said, passing me a tape measure [literally draped in the fitting room for decoration] for me to double check.
As I shared with her what a 38 looks like (a size 16, versus her ten-to-twelve frame) and talked about how her favourite (but not well fitting) B-cups might have been feeling (slipping straps and uncomfortable underwires) – the look of “Holy s**t, I’ve been wearing the wrong size my whole life!” I live for beamed across her face.
As Ms J waltzed around the fitting room one very satisfied woman – literally singing with delight about her new size, shape & supreme comfort – her no longer needed 38B was consigned to the bin.
And the great news is you can get that perfectly-fitted-feeling too.
