The Fashion Post | Brablems with ThirdLove

Any woman interested in fashion will know that possibly the most important aspect of any outfit is underwear, and in particular bras. For as long as women have been wearing bras, bra problems or 'brablems' have plagued us. Between straps being too tight or too lose, bands riding up and the dreaded quad boob, women's lives are hard enough without having these extra worries. 

But never fear, ThirdLove is here to help with all of those pesky bra issues. 

Beginning with how to put on a bra. To a lot of people it may seem like common sense but you won't believe how many of us don't do it the correct way, including myself. Above you can see a little demonstration of how a bra is to be put on correctly, something you may want to bear in mind the next time you are getting dressed, it can make the world of difference. 

Band riding up your back, I have definitely experienced this and there is nothing more annoying. The cause? Your bra does not fit you, the solution? Finding a bra that does fit you, yes it's that simple.

Straps.. possibly the most annoying part of wearing a bra. With small boobs my straps always seem to be slipping down, and why I try and fix it by tightening them they're too tight and dig into me, the struggle! ThirdLove have saved the day once again with their tips above. 

Bands and straps aside, the cups can also cause big problems. I'm sure you bigger busted ladies are familiar with the above woes. Have a read through them and figure out what exactly the problem and solution is.

The final brablem is cup gaping. And yep I am definitely familiar with this one too. Nothing is more disheartening than buying a pretty new bra and getting home to realize that you don't fit into it. Again ThirdLove have provided us with some really great tips to ensure this is never a problem in your life again.. hoorah!

If you experience any of these problems I would suggest firstly getting a bra fitting, they are usually free and of great benefit, you can get one in places such and Marks and Spencers and Debenhams. ThirdLove also have a very helpful size chart which is perfect to refer back to when unsure about sizes. 

If you are on the look out for bras that are both attractive and comfortable have a browse on the  ThirdLove website, furthermore for 15% off all orders use the code BRABLEMS. 

Have you got any brablems, if so how do you deal with them and what are your solutions?
