We’re talking bra size. That’s right; your girls gotta fit. It’s a good thing, too. Because well over 60% of women are wearing the wrong size bra for their body. Sure, it can be about being sexy. sure it can be about comfort and support. But the wrong bra does none of those things.
Are you wearing the right size?
Almost 8 in 10 women are wearing the wrong size, and one of them is probably you. Why? Your body changes over time, and your fit will change year to year as you lose or gain weight, exercise more or less, and so on. If you are experiencing discomfort, spillage over your cups or back strap, tight straps, or a gap between your cups, you are most likely wearing the wrong size.
Measuring yourself for a bra is an art, not a science
If you’re not sure what size you wear, or fall between two sizes, you may want to try several sizes and styles as a starting point.
It’s best to measure when you are wearing your most comfortable bra – one that has no padding and is not a minimizer.
STEP 1: BAND SIZE
Measure under your arms, high on your back, across the top of your chest. If this measurement is an even number, this is your band size. If an odd number, add 1″ to determine your band size.
STEP 2: CUP SIZE
Measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust. Next, subtract your band measurement from your bust measurement; each inch represents a cup size. For example: if your band measurement is 34″ and your bust measurement is 36″, the difference between these measurements is two inches, and you’d wear a B-cup.
