When I see a woman in a bra that clearly doesn’t support her “girls,” I cringe. We’ve all encountered it so many times: a woman with a bra too small or too big. Many of us have been that woman. It’s a problem that eight out of 10 women are faced with. Reports show nearly 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Most women wear their bras 1 to 1.5 inches too big in the band and one cup size too small.
Not only is wearing an ill-fitted bra a disaster for your look, it’s bad for your health. The wrong bra will put undue strain on your back and shoulders. Bare Necessities gives us a few signs to look for when determining if we are wearing the right bra size.
