The Most Common Bra Band Problems

How annoying is it when your bra band causes trouble, whether it’s not supportive, or it’s loose or too tight or rides up making it super uncomfortable.

  • Band riding up: Believe it or not this is one of the most common band problems that women face. First reason could be you have adjusted your straps to tightly and its making your band ride up. Your bust should be supported by your band and not the straps. If you need to tighten your straps for support then your band has loosened up and bra is out of its shape and you need to go for a new one. If the band still rides up without the straps being too tight then you are probably wearing a bigger bra size.

  • Digging Bra Band: Your bra band shouldn’t dig into the skin; it shouldn’t be too tight or too loose. If your bra band is too tight then you need to go up a band size and down a cup size for instance if your bra size is 34C then you should go for 36B. You should always look for your sister sizes if your bra doesn’t fit perfectly.


Wearing a proper size bra is so essential. Always get your size checked and try the bra on before buying it. It’s always better to try on the new styles to see if it works for you, sometimes it’s not the size that’s wrong but the style is not for your body.
