According to Susan, the perfect position for your breasts is midway between your shoulders and your elbows and your bra should be level front to back. Susan says most women wear their bra bands too high on their torsos and throw their measurements off. "Most women keep going up in the back, increasing their band size, instead of getting a deeper cup,” Susan said. “We want to keep the back lean and small so we can lift the bust. The bra band is like a bridge, if it's properly planted at the base, it can lift."
If your cups runneth over, it's time to go up a cup size. If your cups dimple, it's time to go down a cup size. If you have the dreaded back fat, you probably think your bra is too tight, but you're wrong -- your bra is too big. Wearing the bra lower on your back with a smaller band size will completely eliminate the back fat.
Most women buy bras with too-loose back bands. They mistakenly believe that a loose band equals a comfortable bra. The back band provides 90% of a bra’s support...so if your bra band is too loose, your band will ride up and your girls will head south. A loose band can cause unsightly back fat! Yikes! If your strap falls down, that means your bra band is riding up and you probably need to go down a band size.
Buy a size that fits you very closely—it may even feel a bit tight at first—when fastened on the first (loosest) hook. This will enable you to tighten the bra over time as the material stretches out.
