How To Find Your Bra Size

Finding the right bra size can be confusing. First, you will need a measuring tape and pen to write your measurements down.

Put on a thin shirt and no bra. Then, measure your bust width by bringing the tape measure around your back and across the fullest part of your breasts. Write this measurement down.

Next, measure your band size by bringing the tape measure around yourself at the bottom of your breasts and bring it around the front to meet in the middle of your back. Write this measurement down.

Find the difference between these two numbers by subtracting one from another (band width – bust width). Round up to the nearest even number if necessary. This number is going to help you figure out what cup size you are. For example, if there is a difference of 5 inches, you are a C-cup; 6 inches = D-cup; 7 inches = DD-cup; 8 inches = DDD-cup; 9 inches = DDDD-cup; 10 inches= F-cup; 11 inches = G-cup; 12 inches = H-cup; 13 inches= I-cup; 14 inches= J-cup; 15 inches= K-cup. That’s it! You now know what bra size you are

How to Measure Your Bra Size

Now that you know your breast shape, it’s time to figure out how to measure yourself for a new bra

Are you wearing the right bra size? Probably not. According to a recent survey, 80 percent of women wear the wrong bra size. But how do you find your bra size?

1. The best way to find your bra size is to get fitted by a professional or use an online calculator.

2. Use the following steps to determine if your bra fits properly:

3. Put on your best-fitting, non-padded bra. Make sure it’s fastened on the loosest hook so that you can tighten it as needed.

4. Bend over and try to touch the floor with your hands. If your breasts spill out at the front or sides, or if your back bulges with flesh, then your bra is too small for you.

5. Stand up straight, put your hands on your waist, and breathe in and out deeply – if your back bulges or flesh spills out from under the band, then it’s too big for you and doesn’t provide enough support.

6. Raise your arms above your head without taking off the bra. If the band rides up at the back, then it is too big for you and needs tightening; if there are gaps between the cups and your breast tissue at the top, bottom or

Measurement Tips:

• Make sure you are wearing a non-padded bra when taking measurements.

• If your measurement is an odd number, round up to the next even number.

A lot of women do not know their true bra size. Getting fitted for a bra is the best way to know your size but only about 10% of women actually take the time to get fitted.

When you wear a bra that is not your size, it can cause a number of problems. A bra that does not fit well can be extremely uncomfortable and can cause a lot of physical pain. Wearing a bra that does not fit well can also make you look heavier than you actually are and can lead to back problems or even permanent damage to your breasts and back.

A good fitting bra will not be too tight or pinch the skin, it will not ride up in the back, nor will it dig into your shoulders and leave red marks on your skin. A good fitting bra will be comfortable enough to sleep in and will hold your breasts in place while they are moving around during exercise.

This guide is designed to help you figure out whether or not your bra fits correctly, how to find your correct size, how to measure yourself at home, and how often you should get measured.

Knowing your bra size is essential in order to get the perfect fit from a bra. When buying a new bra, even if you have been wearing the same size for years, it is always recommended to remeasure yourself since our bodies change over time. If you are unsure about the correct size or just want a second opinion on the fit of your bras, then we recommend getting fitted at our shop.

To measure yourself right at home there are two steps: (1) measuring your band size and (2) measuring your cup size. There are different ways to measure but here we provide you with the most common way of doing so.

Step 1: Measuring Your Band Size

To start off with, you need a cloth tape measure. It can be tricky to stretch out while taking measurements so having someone else giving you the measurements is always recommended.

Measuring your chest: Use the cloth tape measure and place it under your bust, wrapping it around your back and bringing it forward to the front of your chest (see below). It should be snug but not too tight; make sure that it is level all around. The tape measure should touch your skin, but not indent into it. Round up or down as needed to get an even number measurement. If
