why is my bra tight in the evening

It’s one of the strangest mysteries of our time. If your bra randomly gets tighter when the evening falls, you might be wondering what the cause is. Don’t panic – this is nothing to worry about. In fact, there could be a whole load of reasons that could be causing it.

Here are five things that could be the cause: 

1.  You’re more aware of your lingerie

Let’s face it, during the day, you’re busy with a million different things. You might have work responsibilities, household tasks, and social activities. That means that your mind is set on a whole load of things. The truth of the matter is that you likely don’t think about your lingerie or how it feels. However, the moment that you get home and start to relax, you have fewer things to think about. That’s perhaps why you start to focus on how your bra feels and whether you feel that it’s a little tight.

2.  You’re wearing the wrong bra size

Are you wearing the right bra size? If you’re not sure, it’s time to find out. Booking yourself a bra fitting appointment at a local lingerie store is the smartest thing to do. Most lingerie boutique stores and department stores have free fitting services, which means that solving this problem won’t cost you a thing. When you know that you’re wearing the right bra size, you will feel more comfortable and supported at all times. It’s that simple. Get this job done sooner rather than later so that you can relax.

3.  You could be bloated after dinner

When does your bra start to feel tight? Should you find that you experience irritation directly after dinner, there could be a rather obvious reason for that. When you’ve eaten, you naturally get bloated. That means that you might feel that your clothes are a little tighter than they were before. It could be worth loosening your bra after your meal so that you feel any discomfort or pain.

4.  You may be sitting in a new position

During the working hours of the day, you likely have to sit or stand up straight all of the time. Good posture is everything. However, when you’re trying to relax and unwind in the comfort of your own home, all of that may go out of the window. It’s only natural. So, if you’re slumped down in your seat or sitting in a new position, your bra may have moved with your body too. You could find that your lingerie is digging into you or feeling uncomfortable. Try adjusting your position to see if it makes a difference.

5.  It could be down to hormonal changes

Hormones are weird and wonderful things. Throughout the day, you may find that they affect all manner of things. Often enough, an increase in hormones could mean that your breasts swell or start to feel larger. That is typically completely normal but it can play havoc with your lingerie. Should you find that this happens regularly, you might want to get an expert’s opinion on the matter. It’s likely nothing to worry about but a doctor will be able to give you the answers that you’ve been looking for.

If you’re struggling with a tight bra in the evenings, it could be time to put on your detective’s hat and start investigating the issue! You may find that one of the surprising reasons here is to blame for the underlying problem. Luckily, all of the above are easily solved, which means that you can deal with it as soon as possible.
