How to tell when it's time for a new bra

Good lingerie should feel like a second skin. If your bra no longer fits comfortably or if your straps won’t stay put, it's time for a new one. If you long for the moment you can get home and take off your bra, you’re definitely ready for an upgrade Underwire poke and thinning fabric are two more signs that your bra has seen better days. Buying a bra with good support, is the best way to prevent back pain and poor posture. Good posture is not only better for your body, it’s also a great way to boost your self-confidence! Win-win!

When should you replace your bra?

Discomfort is a clear sign that your bra has seen better days. But that’s not the only reason to replace a bra – everyday wear and tear can also prompt an upgrade. Like clothes, the more often your wear and wash a bra, the faster you’ll have to replace it. If you follow the care instructions, a good bra can last for years.

Lingerie styling

Listen and your body will thank you

Over time, your body changes and so do your breasts. If you recently gained or lost weight, your cup size probably changed along with the rest of your body. Wearing a bra that’s too big or too small is not a good idea. Not only is poor-fitting lingerie unflattering, it doesn't give your body the support it needs. To prevent back and neck pain, loss of breast firmness, and other fit-related issues, it’s important to wear the right bra size.

If you think your size may have changed, stop by your favorite lingerie store for advice. They would be happy to help you find the perfect fit and style for your larger breasts.

Get the most out of your new lingerie with these tips

We know how tempting it is to buy cheaper lingerie instead of investing in a few high-quality pieces, but quality and craftsmanship are a necessity rather than a luxury, especially for women with a larger cup size. So be good to your body and yourself and invest in quality. Stop by your local lingerie shop and try on a few key items. As soon as you find the perfect bra, you’ll know it's worth the investment! And after you've invested in some high-quality pieces, it’s important to take good care of them. Wash your bra on a delicate cycle and store them side by side instead of stuffing them into a drawer. This prevents them from wrinkling and creasing and will help them last longer.
