Yes, it is sized incorrectly. If the straps fall off, even after being adjusted to fit you, then you need to be resized. Someplace like Macy’s or JCPenney will be much more accurate than VS for being sized.

It definitely means it’s too big! I have this problem all the time…but that’s because I have a hard time finding the right size and often have to get a band size that’s one size up.

That is odd! Are the straps still really lose on the tightest setting?

Do you have really small shoulders that slope dramatically? For example can you keep your purse strap on your shoulder?

I would definitely seek a consultant to get measured and let them know your problem, hopefully they can help!

Good Luck!

Does the back of the bra ride up your back? If so, that means the band size is too big.

It could actually mean the bra is too small. If it’s tightly gripped around your body, then that can take load-bearing duty away from the straps and leave them to fall over. I have a short distance between my shoulders and my boobs so slipping straps on bras, tank tops, spaghetti strap dresses, you name it, has always been a problem for me. It’s probably a good idea to go into a store such as Victoria’s Secret or a department store and get measured and fitted so you know your bra size. Personally I just wear a lot of strapless bras and camisoles with straps that are adjustable all the way down so I can shrink them very tight.

I have the same problem, purse straps don’t like to stay on my shoulders either. I think its because I have such a short distance between my chest and shoulders. Def. not because my chest is too small (I’m 5′ and a C cup).

Also if you go to get measured properly I would go to an actual bra shop. Vicky’s consistently measured me the wrong size when I was in high school.
