Question about bras?

I just realized this. When i'm wearing my bra, my nipple is on the side of the cup, not exactly in the middle or near middle. So what is happening is that theres this pocket of air on the inside parts of the cup. Getting a smaller cup size isn't going to work, because my nipples are actually pushing very hard on the cup. (You can see a little bump.) What should i do?

    If the space between the bra cup and your chest is located near the middle of the bra when the cup actually starts, it's simply made that way and it's nothing wrong with your shape.

    For instance, I bought an Ipex bra from Victoria's Secret ( and I have the same problem.

    However, when I try on other styles, the problem ceases.

    All bras are made in a slightly different way to fit different body shapes of people. You simply have to try a few on before you find the best one for you.

    Also, an employee working in any Victoria's Secret store will be happy to help you find the right bra. And most clerks in the liengerie section of many department stores can assist you, as well.

    Here's some sites for reference:

    This is happening because your bra is either getting small or your are buckling it too tight. Try getting a bigger cup or size and maybe one with a little more padding.

    Good luck!
