If you have small boobs, you can face all kinds of bra struggles like gaps between cups, slipping straps and struggle to find the right size. To help you find the perfect fit, we got some tips from bra fitting expert Kanika Girdhar, Delhi.
Wear fitted bras: We cannot stress enough on how important it is to wear a fitted bra to make your breasts look firm. You might think you are 32 A, but for all you know, you could be 30 C. Get a bra fitting done every six months to ensure that you wear the right size.
Wear lace for a better fit: Certain materials like lace can fit you better than the stretchy synthetic fabrics. So try wearing lace as it can fit you a little more tightly and provide more support than a synthetic material that stretch.
The bra cups should contain your breasts: If you wear underwire bra, it should lie flat against your rib cage and include the entire breast. The cup should hold your full breasts with no puckering or bulge in the sides.
Go up a cup size: Check the fitting properly. Check if it is sitting smoothly or snugly around your body. You can go up a cup size if you are buying a padded bra.
Never go strapless: If you are buying a strapless bra, make sure that it grips properly. Silicon strips around the band can provide you with that extra grip. Also, if you get away with the strips, you are going to face a lot of discomforts.
Wear side boning bras for shape: Bras with boning in the side can push the breast to the centre of the breast giving a great shape. Side boning provides that extra support to your breasts.
Opt for T-back bras to avoid slipping of straps: And if your shoulders are narrow, you could experience slipping belts as the strap cannot anchor itself on the shoulder. Try wearing a T-back bra as it will not only reduce slippage but also provide good support.
Go for demi cup bras to enhance cleavage: Yes push-up bras can improve your cleavage, but most of them are not designed for small busted women. Your best bet would be to go for demi-cup bras with no padding. Demi cups cover the lower portions of your breasts and have tilted cups to push your breasts towards the centre.
