    1. Soften up a bra by hand washing it a few times before you wear it.

    Hand washing , or a cool wash if you must use a washing machine, will help to soften up the fabric and make it a more comfortable fit.

    Have a look at this video to see how to hand wash your bra properly.

    2. Get yourself a bra strap cushion.

    3. Adjust your bra strap frequently, and by frequently I mean with every wear.

    This sounds pretty obvious, but seriously you should try it. Your boob size can and will change. It can change due to your menstruation cycle or weight gain/loss, so it's worth regularly adjusting your strap. Also wear and tear will result in a bra losing its shape, so adjusting the straps can help put it back in shape.

    4. Give underwires a little bend and carefully adjust them until they contour to your bust.

    Underwires are the actual worst, and they cause so much pain because they are not shaped to fit the natural form of your breasts and rib cage. So it makes sense to bend them according to your breast shape, have a look at this blog post on how to bend your underwire for a comfortable fit.

    5. Get yourself bra extenders.

    6. Skip the moisturiser and powder around the boob area.

    This is especially useful when you are wearing a strapless bra. Give oils and creams a miss around your chest and this will help your bra stick to your skin as much as possible.

    7. Get measured every time you buy a new bra.
