Lines On My Body From My Bra Straps

Published: December 12, 2009
Dear TeenHealthFX,
I am a 14 year old and I have been wearing bras for about 6 months now, but whenever I take my bra off, there are lines on my body in the front of my chest where the bra strap previously was and they are not seeming to go away. How can i decrease the visibility of those lines? Thank you.

Dear Lines On My Body From My Bra Straps,

 

If your bra straps are leaving such significant marks in your skin, then FX is concerned that your bra is too tight. So the steps you would want to take would be to first find out your correct bra size and then purchase a bra that fits properly so that it will not leave those marks in your skin.

To learn about bra size and fit, how to properly measure yourself, and what styles of bras are available, please read our answer to At What Age Should Girls Start Wearing Bras? In addition to reading that answer, speak with your mother, other trusted female adult, and/or a saleswoman at a department store or lingerie specialty store who can assist you in sizing and choosing the best style/size/fit for you.
