My straps dig into my shoulders and it hurts! Should this happen?

No, your bra shouldn’t be causing you pain! This is perhaps the most misunderstood sign of an improperly-fitting bra. The bra band is responsible for providing 80% of the support for your bust. The straps should only be doing 20% of the work. If the straps are digging into you, they’re shouldering too much of the burden. Your band is likely too large and you need to move down a band size. Making this change will allow the band to do its fair share of the “heavy lifting.”
