No matter how long you have been wearing a bra, it is actually quite common that you may be wearing the wrong bra size.
The most common mistake while shopping for a bra is choosing a band that is too big and a cup size that is too small. Many factors can alter the style and fit of a bra, such as weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and time of the month. A well-fitting bra may go unnoticed, but an ill-fitting one won’t, especially during movement like walking, dancing, or going down a flight of stairs.
Let’s talk about how to measure to find a bra with a perfect fit correctly.
First of all, it is important to note that bra size changes with lifestyle and age. Bra size also varies among brands.
So, how to measure bra size correctly? Bust size and band size are the measurements that will determine the correct size for you.
Note: Inches are the preferable unit, and make sure that both measurements are in the same unit.
Subtract your band size from your bust size. The difference is your cup size and is determined as follows:
And so on.
Combine your band and cup size to get the benchmark measurement, such as 35D.
The right fit also depends on the fabric and style of the bra.
Put a body-hugging t-shirt or blouse over a bra when trying on a bra. A correct-fitting bra will not show any bulges or impressions on the chest or near the armpits, and you should feel as if you are not wearing a bra at all.
