Does my bra
fit me properly?

First, follow the instructions below on How do I get the right size? Your mum or friend might be able to help you.
If you’ve been wearing a bra for a while now but think it doesn't fit properly, then put it on and look in the mirror to check for the most common fit problems:
If the cups look creased or baggy, try a smaller cup.
If you've got red marks on your shoulder the band around your body might be too big. Try wearing a smaller under bust size.
If you're wearing an under-wired bra, the wired section should sit flat against your rib cage. If the wires lift away from your body, your cup size might be too small and you should try going up a size.
This is also true if the wires dig into your sides or sit on your breasts and not underneath them.
If you’re falling out of the cups, they may be too small. A good fitting bra should lie flat on your breasts and almost two thirds should be covered. To check this out, put on a t-shirt and turn to the side. If you see a line where your breasts fall over your cup, you need a bigger size.
The band around your body should be in line with the wires at the front of your bra.
Try running your fingers under the band and if you can do that, then you have the right under bust measurement. If the band is tight, try going up a cup size.
