Finding your Perfect Bra Size

 
 

Now, it is still Women’s month and sometimes, we as women go through a lot of things. Wearing the wring bra size shouldn't be one of them. Here are a few tips on how you can tell you are wearing the wrong bra size.

Now, if you are wearing the wrong bra size, it can alter any woman’s confidence and not only make you feel uncomfy but can also mess up a good outfit.

 

1. Wrinkling in the cups.

2. Underwire poking the sides of your breasts.

3. A band that rides up.

4. Cup spillage, slipping straps, or a bra that hikes up when you lift your arms

 

STEP 1 Measure for band size:

Using a tape measure, measure your underbust. Make sure the tape is parallel with the ground, and you're exhaled to get the smallest measurement possible.

32 34 36 38 40 42 44
68-72 cm 73-77 cm 78-82 cm 83-87 cm 88-92 cm 93-97 cm 98-102 cm

 

STEP 2 Measure for cup size:

Stand straight with your arms at your side and measure at the fullest part of your bust ( wearing a non-padded bra). Make sure the measuring tape is parallel with the ground and not binding.

The difference between the measurement in Step 1 and the measurement in Step 2 is your cup size.

EXAMPLE
A B C D DD E F G
12-13 cm 14-16 cm 17-18 cm 19-20 cm 21-22 cm 23-25 cm 26-29 cm 30-33 cm

 

STEP 3 Adjusting your straps:

  • Back straps must sit parallel to each other.
  • Band level must be all the way around without riding up at the back.
  • Straps should not dig into the shoulders.
  • Band mustn't be too loose.

Now that you've found your correct bra size, it's time to go shopping!
