If your underwire starts to poke out of your bra, the size you’re wearing is probably too small. It’s important to follow the care instructions to make your bras last.
Your bra straps might be too tight. Loosen them so that the bulk of the support is coming from the band, not the straps. If this doesn’t work, your band could be too big. The band should fit so that it lies straight across your back.
