5 SIGNS TO GET RID OF THE CURRENT BRA
If you’ve been rotating the same two bras for years, it’s time to show your boobs some love and support (literally and figuratively). They are deserving of more than stretched-out bra bands and shoulder straps that won’t stay put.
Due to weight changes and natural wear and tear, every bra has an expiration date, no matter how many you own or how carefully you care for them. According to experts, there are a few signs that it’s time to buy a new bra. Here are some signs that indicate it’s time to replace your bra:
1. Stretched-out back
Over time, the back of a bra will stretch out. When this happens, the hook system allows you to tighten your bra to reclaim the snug feeling of a band that properly fits your chest. When the band is stretched out to the point where it feels too loose even on the tightest hook, it’s time for a new bra.
2. stretched-out cups
When you notice a big space between your bra cups and your breasts, it suggests the cups have stretched out or the volume of your breasts has diminished, which can occur as a result of weight loss. As a result, the breasts are not supported, and the bra’s shape shows through your garments rather than providing smooth curves.
3. Underwire doesn’t lay flat
Your bra’s underwire should cup your breast tissue and rest on your ribs. There shouldn’t be any clumping. The bra band should hug the body tightly, securing the bra cup and underwire. We’ve all experienced the agony of an underwire jutting out and scraping into sensitive flesh. Even if you try to sew the area shut after putting it back in, it will most likely come out again. Remove it from your life!
Pilling could occur over a period of time on your bra’s fabric. Your bra is dead and no longer performing if you observe the fabric breaking down, such as the spandex peeling off or the overall fabric losing its flexibility.
5. Faded color
It’s time to go to the lingerie store if your light-colored bra is starting to seem dingy or unclean, or if the dark color is fading.
6. Visible outline from clothes
If the contour of a bra cup can be seen clearly through a T-shirt, it’s most likely because the wearer’s bra is stretched out or too big for them.” It indicates that you are not being supported, that you are not getting the finest shape, and that you are most likely not comfortable. It’s weirdly climbing up, and you have to wiggle all day to keep it in place.
