If you're wearing the wrong size bra

Problem Solution
Your bosom is bulging out of the top or sides of the cup and under clothes your bust looks lumpy. Your bra cup size is too small. Your bosom should be totally encased in the cups.
The bra cup wrinkles, particularly at the top and the sides. Your bra cup size is too big. Your bosom should be enclosed in the cups with a smooth silhouette.
Your bra rides up your back. The bra is too big around your body, the back size id too big. The bra strap should fit snugly around your rib cage.
The wires stick out at the front, or dig in under your arms. The bra cup size is too small. The wires should lie flat against your body and fully encase your bosom.
The bra straps dig into your shoulders. The shoulder straps are too tight or the bra back size is too big. The main support for your bosom should come from the strap around your body and the cup, not the shoulder straps.

FindIng Your Correct Bra Size

lingerie
To make sure you always get a perfect fitting bra you need two measurements.

The first is your underbust, to determine your back size. This is represented by a number, such as 34 as in 34 B. This measurement is taken using a tape measure just beneath your bust, tightly around the rib cage.

The second measurement is the overbust, to find your cup size which is the size of your bosom. It is a letter, such as the B in 34 B. This measurement is taken using a tape measure around the fullest part of your bust.

Now check the measurements to find your bra size in the chart below.

Tips when Trying on a Bra

lingerie
When you try a bra on start off by fastening it on the loosest hook. This will let you tighten up the bra if it starts to give after you've worn it a few times. Also, remember to adjust the shoulder straps to ensure that they are not too loose. It's a good idea to try a tshirt or top over the bra that you are trying so that you can see the shape that the bra gives you underneath your clothes.
