Onward and Upward: The Bra Bulge

Last week, we discussed the finer points of finding the right pair of jeans. Today, we’re moving on up!

The dreaded bra bulge is another common problem caused by wearing a certain article of clothing that simply doesn’t fit. The bra bulge, back fat, and double-boob are all unflattering consequences of wearing a bra that is just too small. Most women cannot fathom that they don’t really know their own bra size, but if you look in the mirror and you are sagging, you have back fat or armpit fat, or you are popping out of the top – guess what – you are either wearing the wrong size or style of bra. A girl wearing a B cup does not need a full-coverage bra just as a DD girl doesn’t need an unlined, wireless, demi bra.

Fortunately there’s a quick and easy solution to finding your perfect fit. Victoria’s Secret offers free bra fittings that pinpoint your exact size and can also help you find which style works best for you.

In most cases, with any article of clothing, you get what you pay for. A $9 Wal-Mart bra is just not going to give you what a $48 Victoria’s Secret bra can. It’s always a good idea to look for sales, but do not fall into the Sale Trap! Never buy anything just because it’s cheap. If it doesn’t fit, you don’t need it even if they give it to you.

Above all, just remember that so many body flaws can be perfectly camouflaged by simply wearing clothes that fit. Look in the 3 way mirror, check for rolls or any other unflattering bulges, and if all else fails, buy some Spanx!
