Ladies this is for you! Are you wearing the right bra? Very important!!

More than 80 per cent of women are wearing the wrong size bra. It's an unbelievably high figure, but it's an easy mistake to make.

The size of our boobs can change for a number of reasons, including if we lose or gain any weight, but lots of us are guilty of getting measured and sticking to that size for years. So how do you know if you're wearing the right bra? And how often should you buy a new one?

Marks and Spencer's bra fit expert and technical manager Julia Mercer has spoken to the Mirror Online to answer these important questions.

How do I know if I'm wearing the right bra?

There are a few tell-tale signs that you're not wearing the right size bra.


This is when it looks like your boob is coming out under the cup. It's caused when the underband is too big and the cup is too small.


This is when the boobs spill out of the side. It's caused by the cup being too small. It can be very painful.

To check the cup fits correctly, make sure it is fully encasing ALL the breast tissue.

Tight straps

You should adjust your straps so you can just fit two fingers on top of each other underneath.

A good way to check if your bra is giving you enough support is to slide the straps off and see if the cups are still supportive.

The straps are designed to hold the cups up, not to give support.

The four-boob effect

This is when the incorrect cup size pushes the tissue up. It can look very unflattering when you're wearing clothes.

Back fat

According to Julia: "Unfortunately every woman, no matter their size, has this issue and can be made worse if the underband of the bra is too tight.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
