6 Signs You Need a New Bra

Let’s be honest, when was the last time you replaced your old bra? 6 weeks? 5 months? 1 year?

It's hard to know when it's time for a new bra. And sometimes you might not even realize that your bra is no longer providing the support you need.

So, if you’re not sure, here are a few telltale signs that your bra has reached the end of its lifespan.

1. The back band is stretched out

A bra naturally loses its elasticity over time, especially the back band. However, if the band is too loose on even the tightest hook, then it’s time for a new bra.

2. The straps are too loose

The same goes for bra straps. If your straps keep sliding off your shoulders and no amount of adjusting keeps them in place, your bra has lost the ability to support your breasts.

3. The underwire is poking out

If you wear underwire bras, this is bound to happen. Whether it’s from natural wear and tear or machine washing, once this happens, your bra is officially old. You can temporarily stitch and fix the issue, but the wire will eventually pop back out.

4. Gaping between your cups and breasts

This can happen for many different reasons. Either, you’ve lost weight or your bra has been stretched out due to wear and tear. Whatever the reason, as soon as you spot extra space between the cup of your bra and your breasts, it’s time to replace your bra. 

5. The fabric is falling apart

Hair-like threads, holes, frayed material, stains, stretched out elastic...all signs of a bra reaching its end. Once this happens, it’s time to bin your old bra.

6. Your body has changed

Sometimes it’s not the bra and that’s okay. Our bodies change over time whether it’s due to weight loss, weight gain, age, pregnancy or hormones. If you spot a difference in how your bra fits, then it might be time to get a different size.

If the above resonates with you and you have a few of these bras in your drawer, we totally get it. It can be hard to say goodbye, however, we do recommend that you replace your bras every few months.

And if you're ready to let go, we’ve got a range of bras available.
