4. Dress your bust
There is a method to putting your bra on correctly! Put your arms through the straps and fasten back band. Pull your breast tissue forward, making sure that your underwire is sitting behind all of your tissue and that it doesn’t dig in. Adjust straps so that there is a 2 finger depth between your strap and your shoulder. You’re ready to go!
8. Strap stress
Are your straps always falling down? Full cup, plunge and push up bras have straps that sit closer to the neck and therefore there is less risk of them falling down. Balcony bras showcase more of your décolletage and the straps tend to sit further apart, towards the tip of the shoulder.
9. Know your necklines
Different outfits require different bras. A balcony bra will sit beautifully underneath scoop and round necks whereas plunge and push up bras can also be worn underneath deep V-necks. Full cups provide optimum support but can come up higher in the cup, making them more suited to higher necklines.
