This week, everyone was wanting to know Jenny’s quick fixes for bra band issues! Since your band is the part of your bra providing the most support, it is so important to make sure you find your perfect fit. Jenny’s tips will help make sure you’re getting the size and support you need in a bra band, every time!
Q: How should my bra band feel when I first buy it? Tight or loose?
Q: My band is super tight and uncomfortable! Help!
A: If your band is too tight and digging in, chances are you just need to go up a band size. Or, sometimes, you need to realize that that bra style may just not be the best style for you.
Q: My band is riding up in the back! How can I keep it from sliding around?
A: If your band is riding up in the back, it’s too big! You need to go down a band size. You should be able to comfortably wear your bra on the loosest hook without any issues with it slipping and sliding.
