Happy Thursday my lovely Swimwear and Lingerie freaks.

Today’s Fitting Tip Thursday post comes from personal experience. {mostly}

We’ll be using the always beautiful Fauve Lingerie to illustrate some of these points!

If your bra straps spend more time around your elbows than hoisting your boobs up on your shoulders, and you’ve begun accessorizing your outfit by dangling charms, earrings, chili pepper fairy lights and other bits of bling on them like a perverse Christmas garland…

You might need a bra fitting.

Bra straps falling off may be a bigger cause of road accidents than texting!

An experienced fitter will probably tell you to try adjusting the straps to a tighter fit and if that doesn’t help the issue, then they may point out one of the following issues as well:

1. The bra style isn’t right for your breast shape. If you are trying to wear a full cup bra and your breasts do not have a lot of volume on the top, then the looser fit at the top of the cup may not be able to keep the shoulder straps from falling off. Instead you can try wearing a balconette bra style or demi cup.

2. Depending on your body type, your bra may have the straps spaced too widely for your frame. If your shoulders are narrow or slope, then you may want to try a racerback or more closely spaced strap style bras.

3. The band size may be too big and causing your bra to ride up in the back. Try fastening your bra on the next tighter hook or going down a band size.
