If you’re one of the many women who experience bra straps that constantly fall off their shoulders, you need to listen up. Your bra straps are trying to tell you something, “Your bra doesn’t fit!”  

You heard me.  Let me dive in and explain.

The larger the the band size is, the straps are going to be set wider in the back to accommodate larger women.  

The smaller the band size, the straps are going to be sest more narrow in the back to accommodate petite women.  

What this means is if your straps are falling off your shoulders, your band size is too big and you need to go down a band size.  

*When you do this it’s important to remember whenever you go down a band size you need to go up in a cup size to compensate the difference.  

Let’s say you wear a 36C, when you go down a band size, you would wear a 34D. Now this is only the case is the C cup in the 36 band is fitting correctly.  It’s important to note that majority of women I fit, the cup size their currently wearing doesn’t fit, so I end up having to go up several cup sizes to get their correct bra size.

There’s some other things to keep in mind.  The first thing I would do if your straps are constantly falling off your shoulders, tighten them.  How do you know if they’re tight enough?  If you can place two fingers between your strap and skin and not move it easily, your straps are snug.  If you can move your two fingers around easily, this means it’s too loose.  

So when you find yourself at the mercy of your bra straps, remember, make sure to listen what their doing.  They can give you a peek into your bra problems.
