With the help of a bra size chart you can finally find the bra that fits you perfectly. With a perfectly fitting bra your clothes will; fit you better and in shape. Here are few tips about finding out your bra size. For more info, click here.
Step 1: Band measurement: Measure directly under bust (around rib cage)– snug, but not too tight. Round to nearest whole even number and add 4. This is your band size (34, 36, 38, etc).
The band should fit comfortably under bust. Not so loose that it slips, but not so tight that it leaves marks, rides up or digs in the underarm.
Step 2: Bust measurement: Measure across the fullest part of your bust (at nipple level). Round to nearest whole number. This is your bust size. The difference between bust size and your band size determines your cup size:
The difference of 2 = B cup
The difference of 3 = C cup
The difference of 4 = D cup, etc
For example, Jane has a 38 band size. Jane’s bust measurement is 41. The difference is 3, so Jane would look for a size 38C bra.
It is important to ensure the following points when measuring your bra size:
- The breast should fill the cup without spilling out
- The bra straps should not be too loose or tight or else the fit will be off.
- It should have a uniform fit all around your body and not move with your movements.
- Remember, different manufacturers follow different size charts. So, try your bras before you buy them or at least follow the size chart properly.
- If you find the cup size fitting but not the band size then try using the bra back extender.
- Don’t be afraid to use bra pads to fix the problem of asymmetrical breasts.
