IS MY BAND TOO TIGHT?
There are a few reasons your band may feel tight, with the first being that it’s a perfect fit, as it should be. With a correctly fitted bra, the band should be doing the majority of the work to support the weight of your breasts. A new bra should fit snugly when you fasten it on the loosest set of hooks, but as the elastic stretches and the item molds to your body, it will feel more comfortable, and you’ll start to prefer the more secure fit. We promise that your bra will get more and more comfortable with each wear.
Another reason your band may feel tight is that your cups are too small. If your band is tight and your cups are also too small, fixing the cup size will almost always result in
a more comfortable band. If that’s not the case,
Your band may actually be too tight. This is the last one mentioned because it’s not normally the reason the band feels too snug, but it does happen. It’s usually the result of
the measurements being just a little off. In this case, going up in the band may be required, but that opens up another can of worms with the cup size needing to be adjusted as well. If you go up one band size, you will most
likely need to go down 1-2 cup sizes. Be sure to contact our fitting specialists to make sure you’re adjusting the size correctly.
