Every women I'm sure have facing the bra-blems either once or more. It is very annoying when your straps slipping down and bands riding up. I personally have experienced when my strap slipping down and it's very uncomfortable. You don't want your holiday or your day ruin because of bra-blems, right? The best way to make it comfortable is just tighten the strap so it's not going to slip down again. But you know? Maybe you haven't known the easy and simple fixes with the bra-blems. I was recently introduced to ThirdLove, it is a company that specializes in great fitting bras, and I thought it would be helpful to show you all this guide so women won't be facing the bra-blems again. Bra-blems? NO MORE!

How to put on a bra

We all know how to put on a bra -- or do we?
Here are some tips to help you achieve new bra bliss!

A tight band is the right band
Wear your new bra on the loosest hook so as it stretches, you can make it tighter.

Keep those straps happy
Tighten the straps every other month to make sure they're snug and supportive.

Try the scoop & swoop
Get your girls in the right place by gathering each breast into the cups as you pull back on the wire.

Fit issues & easy solutions

Slipping straps

When straps are giving you the slip, follow these quick and easy tips.
  1. Tighten the straps. Seems obvious, but as we wear a bra, the straps start to
    stretch out. We recommend tightening your straps every other month.
  2. If that doesn't work, it might be time to explore a different bra style. Usually Full CoverageDemi, and Convertible bras have the narrowest set straps which help to keep them on you shoulders. Balconet andPlunge bras tend to have wider set straps, so if you have narrow or sloping shoulders, the strap issue can be exaggerated with these styles. 

Band riding up

Is your band creeping up in the back? We've got your fix.
It's time to buy a smaller band size so that you have a snug fit. Remember, when you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: if you're a 36C, your tighter band would be 34D . For more info, review the size chart.
You'll know you're in the right band size when you can slip two fingers underneath the back of the band. The band should be snug on the loosest hook, so when your bra stretches out you can continue to tighten it.

Straps digging in

You're not alone. This common fit issue may cause you to rip off your bra the moment you walk in the door at the end of a long day.
The straps should not be doing the heavy lifting. The bra band should be doing most of the work. Chances are, your band is too big or has stretched out to the point that you're not getting the support you deserve. Try buying one band size smaller.
Remember: When you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: If you're 36C your tighter band would be 34D. For more info review the size chart.
Another tip for anyone over a D cup is to buy a style with narrower straps. These styles have straps that are centered on your shoulder so that the weight of the breast is evenly distributed. We recommend Full Coverage.


This doesn't mean that you have four boobs -- but it may look that way when you're wearing a tight shirt. Don't worry, we've got you covered.
It's time to trade in for a bigger cup and give your breasts some breathing room. Go up one size in the cup. Example: If you're a 34D, trade up for a 34E. You and your breasts will breathe a sigh of relief! For more info review the size chart.

Side boob

Sometimes, your breast can spill out of the side of the cup because the cup is too small. Eliminating side spillage is easy: just size up in the cup.
Another possibility is that the band is not tight enough, causing the wire to sit on your breast. Size down in the band and up in the cup. A snug band should pull the wire back and allow your breast to sit into the cup properly. For more info review the size chart.

Cup gaping

This is a fairly common issue for women with East WestThey're Sisters Not TwinsBell of the Ball, and Skinny Minnie's. Since your breast is resting at the bottom of the cup, it leaves room at the top that creates gaping.
  1. First, try tightening the straps. Sometimes that's all you need to do.
  2. If that doesn't work, try going down a cup size. It may be that your cup is just a little too big. If you don't think that you're one whole cup size smaller, try one of our signature ½ sizes. Example: If you're usually a 34B, try a 34A½. For more info review the size chart.
  3. If your cup fits well but there's a little room at the top, try a Plunge orPush-Up style. These cups are angled and tend to be cut a little smaller to reduce gaping.
