Thicken up

If you’ve suf­fered more than enough of your bra straps dig­ging into your shoul­ders, it’s time to bite the bul­let and in­vest in some new bras with much thicker straps. They’ll not only pro­vide you with a bet­ter level of sup­port, they also won’t feel as though they’re cut­ting into your flesh! Look out for thicker fas­ten­ing bands too for dou­ble the com­fort.

Don’t up­size for a small bust

If you have a small bust think about ditch­ing your too-big padded push up bras. Yes, you may feel as though go­ing a cup size big­ger in a padded bra gives you a more rounded shape in clothes, but it’s also not go­ing to be pro­vid­ing much sup­port for your boobs if they’re just float­ing around un­der loose pad­ding. And re­mem­ber, small busts can sag over time with­out the right sup­port! So get fit­ted for a padded bra in your cor­rect size and you’ll get the boost you’re af­ter as well as the sup­port you need in your bra.

Go the full hog

If you’re the op­po­site and have a big bust, you’re no doubt thrilled that over the last decade many more shops are now of­fer­ing su­per pretty bras in a va­ri­ety of larger sizes? But pretty of­ten isn’t prac­ti­cal. If your frilly bal­conettes are start­ing to hurt, it could be time to go for a full-cov­er­age style – at least day-to-day. Check out this pretty one from Deben­hams ( right), it’s full cov­er­age, comfy and rather easy on the eye.
