Right Bra Size

August 29, 2020

Selecting the right bra size is essential for comfort, support, and maintaining breast health. Here are some steps to help you determine your bra size:

  1. Measure Your Band Size:
  • Wrap a measuring tape snugly around your ribcage, just below your breasts.
  • Ensure the tape is parallel to the ground and sits firmly without digging into your skin.
  • Take note of the measurement in inches. If it's an odd number, round it up to the nearest even number. This measurement determines your band size.
  1. Measure Your Bust Size:
  • Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your breasts, typically at nipple level.
  • Ensure the tape is parallel to the ground and not too tight or loose.
  • Take note of the measurement in inches.
  1. Calculate Your Cup Size:
  • Subtract your band size measurement (Step 1) from your bust size measurement (Step 2).
  • The difference between the two measurements determines your cup size based on the following guideline:
  • 0-½ inch difference: AA
  • ½-1 inch difference: A
  • 1-2 inch difference: B
  • 2-3 inch difference: C
  • 3-4 inch difference: D
  • 4-5 inch difference: DD (E)
  • 5-6 inch difference: DDD (F)
  • 6-7 inch difference: DDDD (G)
  • and so on…
  1. Consider Your Unique Body Shape:
  • Remember that bra sizes can vary across different brands and styles. So, it's important to try on bras to find the best fit for your body shape and personal preferences.
  • Pay attention to the bra's band width, cup shape, and strap design. Different styles may suit you better based on your breast shape and comfort preferences.
  1. Seek Professional Assistance:
  • If you're uncertain about measuring your bra size on your own, consider visiting a lingerie store or boutique where professionals can assist you in finding the right fit.
  • Expert fitters can measure you accurately and provide valuable guidance on selecting the most suitable bra styles for your body.
  1. Regularly Check Your Bra Size:
  • Keep in mind that your bra size can change over time due to factors like weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or hormonal changes. It's important to measure yourself periodically, especially if you notice discomfort or changes in the fit of your bras.

Remember, finding the right bra size is about comfort and support. The size may vary depending on the brand, style, and personal preferences, so don't be discouraged if it takes a bit of trial and error to find the perfect fit. Prioritize your comfort and confidence, and choose bras that make you feel supported and comfortable throughout the day.
