From the title of this post, I am sure that you are asking "What the heck is a Brablem?". It is exactly what you would think it is, bra-problems. As women, problems with our bras is a situation we run in to daily and we have had enough!!! In this post I am going to share some of the most common brablems, as well as my least fav issues and also give you some tips to get rid of those pesky brablems once and for ALL!! Who's with me?!?!?
Brablem 1: One of my biggest Brablems is my straps always falling down! There is nothing more annoying than constantly having to fix a falling strap through out the day. It didn't even occur to me to think that it's caused by the straps stretching out!
Solution: Tighten your straps roughly once a month, the slightest amount will make the biggest difference. If that doesn't work try to switch to a full coverage or a convertible bra, as they tend to have the narrowest straps.
Brablem 2: I hate this one, especially when wearing a low cut top; cup gaping - space between you and your bra. For those of us with sisters rather than twins, this can be one of our most common brablems.
Solution: Try to go down a cup size or a 1/2 size. Never heard of half sizes? The company Third Love has solved all of our problems with this one, by offering half sizes in bras!! Ie. If you are wearing a 34B and are a victim to cup gaping, Third Love recommends to try their 34AA 1/2 size, to prevent such an issue.
You could also try a push up or plunge style bra to eliminate the extra space on top.
Brablem 3: Band riding up. That heavy, tight feeling in your back that leaves you uncomfortable all day long. This also has a bad effect on our posture, as standing up straight just feels like too much effort.
Solution: Go for a smaller band and keep in mind when going down a band size, you need to go up a cup size. Ie. If you are currently wearing a 36B, you should now get a 34C to rectify the issue.
