Q - What if the cups fit me but the band is too tight?
A - Go up a band size and down the cup size. This will give you more room around the body but keep the cup size the same, i.e. 34C try 36B
Q – Why does my bra ride up at the back and move around when I move?
A – The band size is too big. Try going down a band size and up a cup size. This will tighten the band but keep the cup size the same, i.e. 36C try 34D
Q – Why is the cup wrinkling and puckering?
A – The cup may be too big. Try lifting yourself into the cup first. If the cup is still wrinkling, try a cup size smaller
Q – What if the straps keep slipping off my shoulder?
A – The straps need to be adjusted so they are a tighter fit. For more support you may need to try a wider strapped bra
Q – My shoulder straps are digging in. What can I do to prevent this?
A – You may need to loosen the straps. If this doesn’t work it maybe that the underband is too big and the straps are providing most of the support. The underband should provide 80% of the bra’s support so try going down a band size and up a cup size i.e. 36C, try 34D.
Q – Why does my prosthesis move towards my natural breast?
A – This is often because the band is too big so try a smaller band size. If the problem persists it maybe that the prosthesis is too light and you may need to try a slightly heavier style
Q – I have only had surgery on one breast. Can I wear bras that have pockets on both sides?
A – Yes you can. The majority of our bras have pockets on both sides, these bras are suitable if you have had either a double or single mastectomy, partial mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstruction. Just place your prosthesis in the pocket required. The pocket on your natural side will fall back and act as a lining, allowing your natural breast to fill the cup.
