Turns out we need to go bra shopping.
I don’t know why (well actually, I do) but I just hate bra shopping. Having big boobs means I’m instantly regulated to the boxed bra section and I hear the struggle is just as real with my smaller boobed friends.
Basically I just wanna get in and out of M&S as quick as possible and I don’t think I’m alone. Which is why most of us are wearing the wrong bra size.
Luckily, Insider have found a way to tell you’re wearing the wrong bra size and it doesn’t involve stripping off to your undies with a stranger in a changing room.
Insider spoke to Nicole Kivitz who works for French lingerie brand Chantelle. Nicole advised that the number one mistake most women are making is buying a bra with a back size that’s too big.
According to Nicole, when you first buy a bra, it should be tight enough that when you wear it on the first hook, you should only be able to just fit two fingers between your back and the band. If you can fit more than two fingers, it’s a sign your back size is too big.
Well, I just tried this out on myself and I can almost fit a whole hand, so that’s brilliant.
“Because 80% of your support is from your band, it should be tight” advised Nicole. The more you wear your bra, the more it stretches, that’s where the hooks come in.
As your bra stretches, switch hooks. If you get to the third hook and can slide more than two fingers underneath, it’s time for that bra to go to the lingerie graveyard.
Well, that’s told me.
