Why is my bra gaping at the top?

  • 1 min read

If your bra is gaping at the top, it usually means the cup size is too big for you. However, it could also be due to the shape of your breasts and style of the bra.

Typically, if you have gaping bra cups, your breasts are resting at the bottom of the cups. To fix this, start by tightening the bra straps, ensuring your band stays straight across your back.

If your cups fit well but there is still a gap at the top, consider going down a cup size or choosing a different style of bra.

Push-up bras have padded, moulded cups that will help your breasts fill out the cups. We love the Refined 5 Way Convertible Push Up Bra and the Underline Dual No Wire Boost Bra with lightly moulded cups for a subtle lift.
