This may seem like no big deal, but it actually is something you should probably be thinking about before you buy your next bra.

HeadachesBelieve it or not, an ill-fitting bra can cause some seriously annoying headaches. If your bra is too tight, it causes tension on your shoulders, neck and back and that in turn can cause headaches. Source: ShutterStock
You Can Stretch Your Boobs OutAccording to British research, a bra that is the wrong size can cause the ligaments to stretch, which can ultimately result in saggy boobs. Make sure your girls are getting enough support! Source: ShutterStock
Back PainIf your bra is too big, that means that you're not getting enough support. And if you're not getting enough support, your boobs (especially if they're large) are going to start giving you back pain. Source: ShutterStock
Too-Tight StrapsIf your bra is too big, you'll probably start tightening the straps so that your boobs get lifted up more. All this does is create ugly red marks in your shoulder that don't need to be there. Source: ShutterStock
Your Boobs Bulge OutYou know when your bra is too tight and your boobs start to bulge out and it looks really terrible and annoying? Yeah. Hate that. Source: ShutterStock
Back BulgeIf your bra is too tight, the back strap is going to be tight, which is going to cause some nice annoying bulge back there. If it's too loose, you're probably going to try to fix that by tightening in the straps. That means your bra strap rides up your back until it's seriously uncomfortable. Either way, you lose.

IndigestionI know this sounds weird, but it's true - the wrong size bra can cause stomach pain and indigestion. If the bra is too tight, it will dig into your ribs and upper stomach area, causing problems inside your body that you don't even realize. Source: ShutterStock
Bra GapsGaps in between your bra and your boobs mean that your cup size is too big. This is more annoying than anything else and it just looks weird. Source: ShutterStock
Shoulder PainRemember how I said your straps being too tight result in red marks? Well, they also result in shoulder pain. It's so uncomfortable and so not worth it. Source: ShutterStock
Rib/Stomach BulgeAgain, a bra that's too tight only results in bulges. If the band is too tight, it's going to dig into your ribs and make your skin bulge out. Not comfortable and not fun. Source: ShutterStock
