Share this article Share Thankfully Sparkling Strawberry have created an infographic revealing the simple solutions to all ten of the nation's lingerie faux pas.

    1) The Baggy Bra

    50% of women have complaints about how their brassiere fits. This is often because bra cups are too baggy, leaving you vulnerable to a cheeky nip-slip.

    Solutions: Measure Up! To avoid any bra-ma drama, know your true bra size. Get measured in a shop or thoroughly study online size guides.

    Mind the Gap – With a correctly sized bra, the cups should fit with no gaping at the top.

    The experts at Sparkling Strawberry say that to avoid the dreaded 'quad boob' you should loosen the clasp 

    2) Quad Boob

    The opposite problem to the baggy bra, is the quad boob. This occurs when bra cups are too tight, causing a muffin-top effect which appears to double your assets.

    Solutions: Loosen Up – Try hooking your bra on a looser clasp and adjusting the straps. Go Big – Failing that, invest in a slightly bigger cup size.

    3) Boring Undies

    We’re all guilty of dismissing the adventurous and luxurious lingerie in favour of plain cotton pants.

    Less than 20% of women feel brave enough for thongs.

    Solution: Don’t Neglect Negligees – Be more confident with your curves and go for the lingerie you wouldn’t usually buy.

    Rather than opting for just one styles as many of us do, experts recommend going for a variety of shapes and styles

    4) Owning Too Few Bras

    It’s important to have an array of bras to help with various outfits. Here are our top four bra must-haves to complement any outfit.

    The essentials kit: T-shirt bra, Plunge bra, Sports bra, Multi-way bra

    Also, breasts change size due to weight gain or loss and periods. The average woman will wear six different bra sizes throughout her life.

    Solution: Go Shopping – Treat yourself to a few good quality bras in various styles and sizes, just to be on the safe side.

    5) Hoarding Bras

    Another common mistake is that women are clinging to old bras for too long.

    Solution: Let It Go – After 8 months, your bra will be stretched and worn down. It’s then unfortunately time to part ways.

    6) The VPL

    The age-old problem of the Visible Panty Line is feared throughout the land. Watch out for the VPL, especially when stepping out in a skin-tight dress.

    Solutions: Go Commando – Apparently 1 in 10 women admit to going out while bare down there.

    Thong It – If you’re not one of these fearless females, the simple solution is to try a thong.

    Seams Invisible – Failing that, a pair of seamless knickers will be your faithful friend.

    7) The Muffin Top

    The dreaded muffin top is again a result of the skin-tight dress, it is simply an unflattering belly bulge over your knickers.

    Solution: Tuck Your Tummy – This problem is often due to too small knickers. To fix it, a trusty pair of body-sculpting or high waisted knickers will give you a slim silhouette.

    8) The Tightest Clasp

    It’s bad for bras if you hook on the tightest clasp immediately after buying. The tighter clasps are there to help when your bra eventually loses elasticity.

    Bras stretch 2-3 inches in their lifetime.

    Solutions: Cut it Some Slack – Try hooking your bra on a looser clasp and adjusting the straps.

    Take It Slow – Only start using the tighter clasps after at least 1 month.

    Do not over tighten the clasp, it is recommended that you leave your bra on the loosest notch until it has been worn for at least one month

    9) Not Washing Bras Often

    As much as we’d hate to admit it, on average the majority of women wash their bras only 6 times a year!

    Solutions: Wash Often – It’s recommended to wash your bras every 2-3 wears.

    Hand Wash – When washing, it’s best to hand wash your bras.

    Keep It Cool – If you must use a washing machine, keep it to 30 degrees.

    10) Staying Away From the Seasonal

    While year-round underwear is a safe investment, there’s nothing like Christmas themed knickers or a special set on Valentine’s Day to get you in the spirit!

    Solution: Stock up on Stockings – Treat yourself to seasonal lingerie for Valentines, Halloween, and Christmas.
