At any given time, a woman may have issues with the way her breasts look. Simple lifestyle tips combined with proper bra fittings will help anyone look the best they can look.


Wear a supportive brassiere

Wear a supportive brassiere (bra). The way to look your best and protect the tissue of your breasts is to wear a bra that fits properly.

  1. 1

    Have yourself properly fitted. Many women do not wear the correct bra, and they end up with something that doesn’t do its job.

    • Look for a quality store which specializes in bras and foundation items. This can be a department store, specialty shop, or foundation store. These stores employ staff who are knowledgable and stock a wide selection of quality products and bras for harder to fit women.
    • Consult with a professional and have your body properly measured. Many quality lingerie stores and department stores offer this service for free.
    • Feeling shy? That’s normal. Bring a female friend, a relative, or your mother. It’s always nice to have someone at your side for morale support to make you feel comfortable
  2. 2

    Select the correct bra for your needs.

    • Choose a bra with a wide back strap. The wider the back strap the more support you get in front. This may include bras with 3-6 hooks. You may like the look of a lacy bra with a one hook closure in the back, but it won’t support larger breasts. Fortunately, colorful, lacy, cute, and/or sexy supportive bras can now be found in even the largest sizes.
    • Choose a bra designed to support large breasts. Many companies make structured bras designed to hold larger breasts firmly and comfortably.
    • Wear a supportive sports bra. This is particularly important in sports that have a lot of movement and bouncing, like running, soccer (football), and rugby. Larger breasted woman may need to shop for specialty sportswear online or in catalogs. Though it might be tempting, do not double up with sports bras. There are better options available even for the largest breasted women.

Make sure you are wearing your bra correctly

  1. 1

    Put on your bra correctly. Take the proper amount of time to get dressed and be sure your straps are adjusted to your back. Straps tend to move around and get twisted during laundering.

  2. 2

    Lean forward when putting on your bra to ensure your chest is centered and perky. Also, make sure the middle of the bra is centered with your body.

  3. 3

    Look for the mid-point on your arm and your nipple line should be level with that middle area of your arm. If it is too low you aren’t getting enough support.

Avoid health-related problems with breasts

  1. 1

    Consult your physician. He or she might have some ideas that can help, or reassure you that your body is perfectly normal.

    • Your health care specialist may suggest a weight loss plan. It is common for women to gain weight in their chest. Don’t be offended if your doctor puts you on a diet–you can’t escape your genetic code. Your body may store fatty cells in your breast tissue, whereas other woman store it in their hips, thighs, and abdomen.
    • Avoid yo-yo dieting. If you are constantly changing cup sizes, the repeating weight gain and loss will inevitably stretch your breast tissue.
    • Report persistent back pain. You may need supplemental back support or a prescribed custom bra for your needs.

Do not go braless

  1. 1

    Avoid going braless. Gravity will inevitably cause your breasts to sag. Going without a bra for extended periods of time will further stretch the breast tissue.

Edit Tips

  • Stop obsessing. There’s nothing wrong with large breasts if they’re put in a flattering, well-fitting bra.
  • Don’t compare yourself to other women. Everybody’s body is different. “Sagging” breasts, for example, are often simply healthy and perfect breasts that need a little support to look and feel their best. That’s just as normal and healthy as women with tiny breasts.
  • Specific back exercises can help alleviate back pain associated with having larger breasts. By strengthening your back muscles, you will be able to support your chest without odd leaning and poor posture. Many women develop their breasts quickly and underdeveloped back muscles may lack the strength necessary to support the growing chest. Make back workouts a frequent part of your workout plan.
  • Work on your posture. Again, while it doesn’t change the breast itself, it will make your chest look even better. Always hold your shoulders back.
  • Launder your bra correctly. A worn bra will not support or protect you correctly. Hand wash or utilize a lingerie bag. Wash your bras in a gentle laundry soap with cold water. Hang to dry or dry flat and don’t expose the bras to the heat of the dryer. The dryer heat will deteriorate the elastic.
  • Buy bras regularly. An average woman’s bra will last 3-6 months under typical use. After that, they start losing support.
  • Lift and separate. Keep your breast lifted and separate with bras and appropriately fitting tops. Don’t squish them together or flatten them down. It won’t flatter you.

  • Forget “miracle creams” or “bust breams.” They don’t work and are a waste of money.
  • If you have pendulous breasts, avoid clothing items with little or no support, like spaghetti-top dresses, shelf bra camis, and so on. They won’t look flattering and won’t support you.
  • Consider plastic surgery only in extreme cases. Keep in mind that plastic surgery is real surgery with real risks of mistakes, injury, and death.
  • Bras can seem like alien clothing to wash, but it is really quite easy. If you’re a husband, boyfriend, or a woman new to bras, or if you’d like to take better care of your investment, here are some tips for you.

    How to Wash a Bra

    1. 1
      Close the clasps.

      Close the clasps.

      Close the clasps before washing. Most bras have clasps on them, whether they attach in the front or back. These have a tendency to catch on other items in the wash. If yours is an athletic bra or slip-on type without closures, don’t worry about this step.

    2. 2
      Put bras in a lingerie bag.

      Put bras in a lingerie bag.

      Put bras in a zip-up, net bag (sometimes called a lingerie bag) that separates them from other items in the wash. This will prevent snagging. You can then wash bras at the same time as other items in your washing machine.

    3. 3
      Wash in a washing machine.

      Wash in a washing machine.

      Wash bras in cold or warm water on the gentle cycle of the washing machine.

    4. 4

      Make sure as with any other items you launder that the items are of compatible colors. If you wash a red bra with a number of white bras you may end up with a selection of pink, polka-dotted, or tie-dyed clothing.

    5. 5

      Wash bras with fabrics of a similar weight. Jeans and towels are much heavier than bras. T-shirts, underwear, socks and pajamas are better choices for filling up that load.

    6. 6

      Reshape the bra if it has foam or batting in the cups.

    7. 7
      Air drying is gentlest.
    8. Air dry the bra if at all possible. It is by far the gentlest way.
      • Hanging the bra on a rack or clothesline makes for easy handling and relatively quick drying.
      • If you are concerned about the possibility of the bra stretching out, lay the bra flat to dry it because hanging can reshape or damage the form of the cup.
      • If you do dry the bra in a dryer, dry it on a low to medium setting. Heat damages the elastic in the bra and the hooks catch or tangling with other items in the dryer.
      • Tips

        • Read the directions, too.

          Read the directions, too.

          If the bra label has special care instructions, follow them.

        • No lingerie bag? You can also use a pillowcase with a knot tied in the top.
        • Bras can easily be hand washed, too. Simply swish them in a tub or sink full of water with enough laundry soap to make suds. A gentle fabric cleaner or even a bit of shampoo will also work. Then, rinse thoroughly, squeeze (do not wring or twist) out excess water by sandwiching or rolling it in a clean, dry towel, and hang to dry.
        • Do not bleach bras, or if you feel you must bleach them for some reason, use a non-chlorine bleach. Over time, chlorine bleach degrades spandex, a common material in bras.
        • In general, you should not — and should not need to — iron bras.
        • Make sure you allow for a few hours before you actually need your bra-especially a padded one. Padded or push-up bras can still be damp after coming out of the dryer and may need a little extra time to air-dry.
        • It helps to avoid washing all of your bras at once. That way you have one for “emergencies.”
        • Warnings

          • Snagging can damage bras in two ways. The first is tearing the material or stitching. The second is by bending the underwire that accompanies most bras. Even after reshaping the bent underwire, it can leave kinks that will be uncomfortable for the wearer.
          • Foam padded bras should be handled as above. Commercial driers often have warnings to never dry foam in a drier. This refers more to foam mattress pads and the like, not padded bras. If you dry your bra on low temperature, everything will be fine.
          • Woolite, although it is the foremost brand of “gentle cleanser,” was invented long before some of the newer synthetic fibers for bras were invented, and it contains compounds that may damage newer, more expensive fabrics and cause your bra to “spring” before its time. Consider investing in actual “lingerie laundry detergent” to avoid this.
          • Things You’ll Need

            • Lingerie bag- (Try to get a bra wash bag specifically, they’re cylindrical and protect the bra from snags or pullls while keeping its shape)
            • Dirty bra
            • Detergent
            • Washer/Dryer
            • Finding a bra that is fits well is a simple, but time-consuming task. By following these steps, you should not only be able to find one that fits, but is comfortable as well.

              Edit Steps

              1. 1

                Measure Your Bra Size. There are a number of different methods. Some methods add 4 or 5 inches to your rib cage measurement, other do not. Different methods work best for different body types. If you find that the method you used didn’t work, try others to get a more accurate result. Whichever method you use, remember that your result is just a starting point.

              2. 2

                Determine what kind of bra you want. Do you want one that is padded for an extra boost? Or underwire for extra support? What about a sports bra for any athletic activities? Once you have decided what kind of bra or bras you want, you’re ready for the next step.

              3. 3

                Go to the store. I recommend finding a bra boutique that carries a wide range of sizes, especially if you are full figured or have trouble finding a good fit. Take note of the names and sizes of the bras that fit. You can always buy online later.

              4. 4

                If a clerk offers to help you find bras in your size, great. If not, look around and choose bras close to your size in the style you want. Remember, you may be a different band or cup size in different bras! The designer, style, and hormonal changes to your body such as water weight can affect how a bra fits. It’s a good idea to look for band and cup sizes one size bigger and smaller than your size.

              5. 5

                Put one on with the clasp on the loosest fitting. Bras have a tendency to get looser as time goes on due to washing and wearing, so by trying it on this way you’ll make sure it will last longer. Tighten the shoulder straps.

              6. 6

                Check for the following:

                • Band tightness- You should be able to run your fingers around under the edge of the fabric, but if you can pull it away from your back by more than a couple of inches, it’s too loose.
                • “Double boobs”- If your breasts are bulging out of the sides or over the top of the cups, then you need a bigger cup size.
                • Straps- If your shoulder straps are digging into your shoulders, the band size is probably too big. If they don’t adjust tightly enough, find another style bra.
                • Centre gore- The centre gore of the bra, between the cups, should always be firmly against your body. If it is being pushed away from you, then you need a bigger cup size and a smaller back size.
                • General size- Bend over. If your breasts are falling out, then the bra doesn’t fit. Either the cups are too small, or the band is too big, or both.
                • Staying put- Move around. Put your arms above your head and twist left and right at the waist. The bra should neither ride up nor pinch at this point. If the band slips, try a smaller size. If it cuts in, it’s too tight. If you’re trying on a sports bra, jog in place or jump up and down as well to test if it can control ‘bounce’ comfortably.
              7. 7

                Repeat these steps until you have tried on all of the bras. Make sure you keep the ones that fit separate from the ones that don’t!

              8. 8

                Purchase the bra or bras that make you happy. If the bras in your size are expensive, purchase the least expensive one that fit and look for discounts online.


              • After you have tried on the bras, chances are you’ll have a favorite. Even if you buy only this one (or several in different colors), take notes of the ones that were close but not quite since manufacturers have a tendency to discontinue bras after a time.
              • If you decide to purchase an underwire make sure that there aren’t any wires poking out.
              • Remember to try on the bra with the clasp on the loosest fitting NOT the tightest!
              • Before you buy a bra, try it on under your shirt. This is a good way to check if the seams show through, or if you are unhappy with the shape.
              • Never skimp on buying a bra. If there is one item in your wardrobe that deserves being paid full price for, it’s a bra – it has a very important job to do and your posture can be badly affected if it isn’t working properly.

              Be aware that bras may contain materials that you are allergic to which you may not be aware of when you make your purchase. If you experience any swelling (such as hives) or excessive itching, then you may be allergic to nickel or the plastics in the bra. Take note of where the allergic reaction happened and watch out for that material the next time you decide to buy a bra. In the meantime, take some Benadryl, or in extreme cases, get to the emergency room
