We all know that wearing the right bra size is a must, even if going for a bra fitting is one of those 'some day' tasks that you never get round to.
But wearing a bra that's the wrong shape and size is not the only crime many of us commit when it comes to lingerie, experts have revealed.
From relying on the same one or two trusted bras to being overly worries about VPL, the minefields are many and varied.
1. GOING FOR THE BRA YOU WANT INSTEAD THE ONE YOU NEED
Many women go for a bra that they want to have and sort of squeeze themselves in, which is really bad for you because you've got to protect your top muscles. Once they're ripped, that's it the reason is that you just can't build up your breast muscles again. The loose fit of your bra around the back can also do the bad job. An expertly opinion follows that wearing your bra quite tight helps you to feel safe and solid. But a lot of women ignore this and we all have seen when the bra is riding up at the back and the boobs are sort of drooping — that's really bad. And also, if you're wearing a bra that's too small, the wire is going to stick into the breast.
2. IGNORE THE EFFECT OF MATHCING LINGERIE
You may think matching underwear is just for women with too much time and money on their hands, but there is a positive mental effect behind such dedication to the details. Many of us are working women who got families or commitments, but matching your underwear makes you feel better even psychologically, and we think that when you have a matching set on, it feels like you've made an effort. Furthermore, lingerie sets have a lot of good features. First, the top and bottom are made of the same fabric and match each other perfectly. Second, the same pattern and color will make your look harmonious and elegant.
3.HOLDING ON BRAS FOR TOO LONG
Every woman has a basic bra that she loves and wears it all the time, we strongly encourage you to change it every month. For sure, with certain expensive pieces there is no need to follow this rule, because you'd probably only be wearing it on special occasions.
4.THINKING THAT THE MORE YOU COVER YOURSELF THE BETTER
Many women think that if they buy a piece with more coverage, it will be more suitable — actually the smaller the panties, the better they are on your bottom.
4. SHOP LINGERIE INPROPERLY AND IN A HURRY
Storing your lingerie is not an easy process and thinking that you have the same size in each brand is an often mistake. Many lingerie brands chose their own fitting and decide whether they stand for big or small sizes, are they every day lingerie or a special occasion one. Before buying a new brand you have to refer to the size chart and be sure you will have the right shape and color.
5. TAKE CARE ABOUT YOUR LINGERIE
There a lot of things included in a proper care routine. The first, you have to remember that if you're buying something pricy, hand-wash it, look after it —especially when you put it in your drawers, as many women shove them in, and you can get the wires stuck and squashed easily. But when using a washing machine, you should put underwear in a lingerie bag and on a cool cycle, like 30 degrees.
6. OWN ONLY ONE BRA SIZE
Through the years you may finally find your perfect fit, but your lingerie collection should still include various sizes. The reason is that your breasts change each month, up and down … Sometimes you lose weight, or just before your period, you might even go up another size. It's quite good to have several sizes for the mentioned occasions. Just remember to wear the right size at the right time!
7. OVERLOOK WHAT SUITS YOUR BODY SHAPE
There is a chart of all different breast shapes and it's quite funny. You might find that you're good in a balconette bra, but sometimes women try and wear things that aren't good for them, or they think they should wear a certain thing (because it's in fashion), and they don't experiment with other shapes.
8. WORRYING EXCESSIVELY ABOUT VPL
An expert opinion provides that women worry too much about VPL right now and we actually think that wearing knickers sometimes where you can see it is actually really sexy!
9. NOT OWING ENOUGH UNDERWEAR
The expert in lingerie thinks the reason behind women feeling like they aren't washing their lingerie as frequently as they'd want is that they perhaps don't own enough in the first place. The advice is that you shouldn't be wearing the same bra more than two days in a row on any given week, and to rotate them more when possible. The reason is that as you shouldn't be wearing the same pair of shoes every day, because it's not good for your feet, and the same goes for bras.
10. NOT GETTING YOUR SPORTS BRA FITTED
If you're going to do sport, you need a sports bra, and you need to be fitted for that sports bra and It's really important. If you're doing aerobics or running, you need to be strapped in; running is quite hard on the body.
11. BUYING PANTIES THAT ARE TOO SMALL
Although less coverage can be more flattering, you still need to ensure your panties are comfortable and not excessively digging in and it doesn't matter what size is on the label you wear.
12. WASHING PIECES TOO OFTEN OR VICE VERSA
Washing on high-temperature settings on your machine can destroy underwear very quickly — but not washing pieces enough is understandably a hygiene issue as well. We advise that you should wash your bras every couple of wears.
