Amongst bra fit problems, one of the most common culprits is a bra band that sneaks upward, revealing itself above your backline and shifting around so you constantly need to readjust. When correctly fitted, a bra band should rest squarely beneath your shoulder blades, parallel to the floor. So why are so many of us walking around with bra bands that look like they're made to sprout wings, rather than support our breasts?
Problem: Your bra band is too large.

Solution: Go down a band size, up a cup size.
A tighter band offers more bottom-up support to your breasts, which is how a bra should work. By wearing one, you'll avoid the problem of your breasts putting too much downward pressure on the front of the cup (which causes the band to rise), and meanwhile prevent the band from sliding around your torso.
Remember that when you go down a band size you should also go up a cup size, in order to make sure that the cups are the right volume for your breasts. Give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
