When it comes to figuring out why your bra doesn’t fit or feel as good on your body as you want it to…the list of possible problems appears endless. One common complaint is a crawling or shifting band, and when this happens, women are almost always given the advice “Your band is too big, and […]
Update on Altering Bra Band Tension for a Better Fit
Last month I posted about how I suspected a few of my key fit issues weren’t because of bra style, but because of the uneven bra band tension I experience in some (okay, all) bras, in my post “It’s not the bra style, it’s your bra band tension!”. Since I’ve had three bras altered, and […]
When Working Out Creates Bra Fit Problems…
Today’s post in the Fit and Active September series is about a frustrating side-effect of becoming fit and active – when successful workouts change your body and create bra fit problems. I love working out. Moving my body is my go-to prescription to decrease muscle aches, clear my head, balance my hormones, and improve my […]

You know, workhorse shorts and tees that you can wear every day. One would think, since I bother to blog about bras that I appreciate clothes and fashion […]
Fit Points: Straps
Sometimes we get so caught up in cup size and band size, we forget about the finer fit points that can determine if a bra is a good fit. After noticing the Fantasie Rebecca straps and armholes were more comfortable than the Cleo Juna’s, I decided to compare the bras I currently own to figure […]
The Isle of Bra Size Denial
I should probably explain how I got so deep into bra size denial. I grew up wearing wire-free bras – my mother wore them, so I wore them. I had small breasts (I wore a B cup) and I didn’t need them, and didn’t see the point in being uncomfortable when it was unnecessary. This […]
