Fact: For your information, your sleeping position is not the one to blame for the mismatched size of your breasts. The way you sleep has no connection or relation whatsoever to the size of your breasts.

The truth is, it is natural (and very normal) for us to have uneven breasts. One of our breasts is naturally bigger than the other.

The Cups Of The Bra Or The Underwire Provide Support To Your Breast

When we take a look at our bras, you would automatically assume that the cups are the ones that give breasts the support they need. Some would even claim that it is the underwire’s job. Both statements actually make sense. After all, they are in direct contact with the breasts.

Fact: But the truth is, it is your bra’s band that does most of the breast lifting. In fact, the band provides 90% of the breast support. So if you want to give your boobies the support they need, it is a must that you opt for a bra with a band that fits your body well and one that will stay in place no matter how much you move around.

However, keep in mind that you need a bra band that is snug but not too tight that it is already choking you or your skin.
