Bra Causing Marks On Shoulders??

Recommended Posts

Do you suffer from this problem? Have you found a solution? Helppppp! Dress is strapless. Marks not bad but hyperpigmented nonetheless. Of course we want to be as close to perfect as possible. I have 4 months left!!

 

Thanks,

try going to a spa and getting some kind of body scub service. you can ask them to pay special attention to your shoulder area. also, i find that i sometimes get marks there if my shoulderbag is too heavy on a day to day basis.

I saw on oprah that marks on your shoulders means you bra is not tight enough aound your body. So if you are wearing a 36C, you might actually need a 34D. I think it was 75% of the support should come from the bra not the straps, but most women let the straps do the supporting. You might want to go somewhere to get properly sized.

Thanks Morgan! I have this issue too and I guess I need to find a place that would do this? Any ideas? lookatme.gif

I was going to suggest getting measured too. Your bra straps should be snug and the back should be level all the way around. If it rides up you need a different size. Everyone should get measured at least once a year. As we age, lose/gain weight our size will fluctuate.

To measure yourself you need a soft tape measure. Stand in front of a mirror or have a buddy help you out so you can be sure the tape is level.

WEAR YOUR BRA--this gives you a more accurate fit. (something unlined preferably)

1) Measure all the way around your rib cage, directly below your bust line. Add 4 or 5 to this number to get the nearest even number. So 29+5=34, 32+4=36, etc.

2) Measure under your arms, high on your back, across the top of your chest (where the straps connect to the cups in the front of your bra) If this measurement is an even number, this is your band size. If an odd number, add 1" to determine your band size. Hopefully the numbers from step 1 and 2 match.

3) Measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust.

4)Now, subtract your band measurement from your bust measurement; each inch represents a cup size. For example: if your band measurement is 34" and your bust measurement is 36", the difference between these measurements is two inches, and you'd wear a B-cup.

**You really should try on a variety of styles to find which one works best for you.

I managed a Victoria's Secret for a year right after college. Tammy--I bet my collection could rival yours! LOL!

They do free fittings if you ever need one.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
