Creaky bras can be alternately distracting, amusing, annoying, and embarrassing.
For those of you who haven’t experienced this phenomenon, some bras actually make creaking noises when you move. Think old door with hinges that need oiled. It may look good and feel good, but the minute you lean over to reach for something, you’re accompanied by this kind of squeak and groan.
What causes this? I can’t say for sure, but I’m guessing that the seam on the underwire is too tight. When the metal moves against the fabric, it makes this sound.
Can you imagine having to explain that on a first date? Or at work? No, thank you.
One more thing to check for when you’re shopping.
