I guess I've been scooping and swooping incorrectly since I learned about it, and just always have been wearing my bras wrong.

I got a comment that it looked like I was wearing my bras too low, and it's been sticking with me even after I assured them in it was in my IMF. After reading the linked blog post, I test fit some of my "perfect" bras and they don't fit the way they used to. 😞 I guess it's time to go through everything, redo my measurements, and hope for the best. I will probably wear some of my bras "incorrectly" until I'm able to get more.

Anyone else run into this issue?

  • I am guilty of it too, especially when I gain a bit of breast volume and don't want to buy new bras. If your band is a bit too large it won't be as bad as there is not too much pressure from the wires on the side. The wire should not lay on breast tissue, if your bras have too wide wires you also can get away with this and scoop from the front so the "quadboob" goes back on the cups.

  • Even though I'm pulling the band up and pulling the wires into my IMF, the band feels even looser than if I'm wearing it lower? It's odd considering my torso is V shaped.

    @alisa I haven't gained any real volume, I just was wearing my bras wrong. I'm still on my learning journey, and this is just another thing I've learned! Though now some of the bras I felt fit are too small with my bras now pulled up into my actual IMF. I'll have to get around to adding pics for reference and seeing if I'm delusional when it comes to where the band should sit.
