Isn’t it annoying to have a slippery bra strap or a strap that is so tight that it results in a painful experience? This makes you conscious throughout your day, imagining the number of times and places your strap can slip.
Did you know that a woman can have more than one bra size? 80% of the women end up wearing the wrong bra size. These are highly technical and delicate pieces to produce, therefore finding the right size can be a bit confusing.
How to measure your bra size:
Bra size is the ratio between your cup size and your band size. Many lingerie brands have their very own bra sizes chart to help their customers to find their right fit.
Follow the following steps to determine your bra size:
- The first step is to wear a comfortable non-padded and wireless bra. This is the base to measure your size and not leave your breast sagging, this affects the accuracy of the measurement.
- For the second step, you would require a measuring tape and a mirror. Measure the band size from around the bottom of the bust. Once you have the numbers, round it off to the nearest whole number that will be your band size.
- For the cup size keep your measuring tape a little higher and measure the fullest part of your bust. While measuring make sure that you don’t hold the measuring tape too tight. Once you get your numbers again round it off to the nearest possible number.
- Now that you have all the measurements. Use a bra size chart or calculator. This would help you calculate your perfect bra size, based on the measurements you have taken.
Tip to measure correctly:
- If one breast is larger than the other, consider the measurements of the larger breast.
