Bra band size too small

Can I just change my bra band size?

Well yes, if you feel your bra band size is too small you could easily go up a band size.

What you should realize however is the fact that going up a band size will change your cup volume as well. For example, a bra in 32C has a different cup volume as a bra in 30C.
