How to prevent cups that dig in

Picture this: You find the perfect bra in your favorite lingerie boutique, but it’s not available in your size. Your creative solution? Try the bra in a smaller cup size and loosen the straps and the back. Done! Or are you? If you check your breasts in profile, you’ll notice that the too-small cups have effectively segmented your breasts. You've now got spillage from the top (and possibly also from the sides). The result? Quadriboob.

Say goodbye to cups that dig in

Prevent quadriboob, especially when wearing a fitted dress, top, or blouse. These styles will make it look even more obvious. A bra that's too small isn't comfortable. All women want a gorgeous silhouette, which calls for lovely, rounded breasts. The secret? Wear the right bra size.

  • Do your cups dig in? Try a larger cup size. If you usually wear an 80D, try an 80E instead. This will give your boobs some breathing room.

  • Does your bra feel too loose? Try a smaller band size. If you usually wear an 80D, try a 75E. In this size, the band will fit more snugly around your body.

The right bra size can prevent digging cups and create a stunning silhouette. As a result, you’ll naturally feel more confident. Get ready to glow!
