    -- Check for chafing around the armholes, shoulder straps, seams, hooks or snaps
    -- Confirm that the straps don’t dig into your shoulders
    -- Check for wrinkles or puckers in the cup…indicating the bra cup is too large
    -- Jump or run in place to check if the bra supports your breasts as you move.
