Knowing Your Right Bra Size

 

 

By Tiffany Moore

 

Wearing the right bra size makes a huge difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. A correct bra fit gives you shapely and perky boobs instantly. If you wear ill-fitting bras that do not provide good support, it can lead to problems with your back and shoulders as well as cause skin irritation.

 

How to Know Your Bra Size?

Bra Band Size

1. Put on a comfortable bra, one that is neither too big or too small (does not make your breasts pop or spill over).

2. Take a measuring tape and measure (in inches) under your armpits, high on your back, and across the top of your chest, above your breasts. Make sure the tape measure is level with the ground and fairly snug, and your arms down.

 

If you get an even number measurement, that's your band size. Add one inch, if the number is odd. For example, if you measure 33 inches around, your band size is 34.


 

Bra Cup Size

1. Measure loosely around the biggest part of your chest, keeping the measuring tape horizontal.

2. Take your band measurement, and subtract from your cup measurement.

Each inch represents a cup size. For example, if your band size is 34 inches and your cup measurement is 35 inches, the difference is one inch, so your cup size is A.

 

If your band size is 35 inches and your bust measurement is 38 inches, the difference is 3 inches so your cup size is C.

 

If the difference is:

Less than 1 inch, your cup size is AA

1 inch, your cup size is A

2 inches, your cup size is B

3 inches, your cup size is C

4 inches, your cup size is D

 

Keep in mind that this measuring method is an approximation. There are no real industry standards for bra sizing since manufacturer and style vary greatly.

 

 

These bra fit tips are very helpful when you are shopping for new bras in the future.

 

1.  A right bar will feel comfortable. It will not give you red marks or wheals.

 

2.  The back band will be parallel with the front band, and should not be tight.

 

3.  For an under-wired bra, the underwires will lie comfortably at the back of the breast without digging in. The front of the underwires will sit comfortably between your breasts and rest against your breast bone.

 

4. Breasts should fit comfortably into the bra cup with no overflow, double-bubble, sagging or wrinkles in the bra fabric.

 

5. The straps will not cut in, and slip down.

 

6. If you have uneven breast sizes, always go with the bigger cup size. You can support a smaller breast by making that shoulder strap slightly shorter, or pad out the cup.

 

 

Wearing the right fitting bra will completely change how you carry yourself, and boost your self-esteem considerably.
