Shopping for the right size of bra

Buying a bra can be a long and painful task for many women. There are many bras to choose from and many women do not know which style, and especially which size, suits them.

When shopping for a bra, it is essential to find the right size. it is estimated that about 80% of women do not wear the correct bra size. To make sure that the size of the bra you are buying is correct, watch for the following signs.

You should measure the width of your chest just below  your breasts‌  (on your ribs) before buying a bra. Take this number and add five inches. This will tell you what band size you should try. For example, if you measure about 31 inches, you should try a bra of 36 sizes. If your number ends up being odd, skip to the next size. If you are plus size, you will not have to add these five inches.

To find your correct cup size, have someone measure the most complete part of your breasts. You should not wear padded bra to do it. Then take that number and subtract it from your rib measure. This will tell you your cup size.

Negative difference - AA

  • 1 inch - A
  • 2 inches - B
  • 3 inches - C
  • 4 inches - D
  • 5 inches - DD or E
  • 6 inches - DDD or F
  • 7 inches - DDDD or G

If your bra fits snugly, it should fit snugly in the middle, while allowing one or two fingers to fit comfortably under the band. If you can not do that, the bra is too tight. If the group is very easily detached from your body or if it goes up in the back, the bra is too big. If you wear a bra under the wire, the wire should lie flat on your chest. While if you wear a bra without a sub-wire, it should separate  your breasts‌  so that it does not look like a big boobs. You should also look for the tightness of the bra on the chest. The breast should perfectly fill the cup. If your chest is lower than the cup, the cup is too big, but you do not want to spill either. If  your breasts‌  come out on the sides, up or down, the bra is too small. If the group feels good, just put on a cup size. When shopping for a bra, try raising your arms above your head - the bra should stay in place and not come off the chest. If so, it's too big.

If you follow these tips, your next shopping trip for bras should be more enjoyable. Try all styles of bras to see which type suits you best. In addition, never rush when you buy bras. Pay attention to their appearance to make sure you buy the perfect solution.
