Senior Bra Troubleshooting Problems

  1. Cup size should be reduced if cups are wrinkled.
  2. Cup size should be increased if breasts spill out of bra.
  3. If bra straps constantly fall down tighten straps, manually adjust breasts or reduce cup size.
  4. If straps are too tight loosen straps, manually adjust breasts, change to padded straps or increase cup size as necessary.
  5. If band rides up tighten the bra band, loosen straps, adjust breasts, go down band size or your bra may be worn out.
  6. A 32C, 34B & 36A are basically the same size; if a 34B is too large of a cup size try a 36A instead.

Caring for your Senior Bra

  1. Always wash your bra in cold water if possible. Heat will break down the elasticity in the bra.
  2. Hand wash or place in lingerie bag, Be as delicate as possible.
  3. Never bleach your bra. You may get the most detestable colors in the end.
  4. Hang dry; heat from a dryer will also break down the elasticity.
