Make sure to get a bra at least once a year!

When was the last time you measured for the  right bra‌  size? Do you even know your correct size?

These questions are relevant for you to get the right bra, as well as save money and unnecessary stress. To help you avoid some common pitfalls, I've listed some more important questions you should ask yourself before buying a bra:

Do your braces support your shoulders or rib cage?

Does your bra go up in the back?

Is the front of the band too tight for a finger?

Are your bra cups slightly empty or too full?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is likely that you are not wearing the correct size. You should not assume that the size you had two or three years ago is the same size you have today. Your body will change, just like your bra size. If you have lost or gained weight, it is likely that you will have to change your wardrobe.

You should be in shape by a lingerie specialist at least once a year.

A well-fitting bra is essential for comfort and posture and is especially important during adolescence. A poorly fitting bra can cause back problems and muscle tension, which can lead to posture problems and backaches that last a lifetime. For this reason, you should be in shape by a lingerie specialist at least once a year or, preferably, after every noticeable growth, or even any reduction. This advice is even more important for teens who are just starting to wear bras.

Take a quick step at home.

You can take approximate measurements at home, which will give you a good idea of ​​what your height should be. A simple way to do this is to follow these very simple steps:

1. First, stand straight and wrap a tape measure around your rib cage under your breasts. Pull firm but not tight.

2. To measure the size of your hat, wrap the ribbon around the fullest part of your bust and pull it tight again but not too tightly.

3. For measurement around the rib cage, add five and round to the next even number. This will give the size of your group.

4. Now, calculate the difference between the size of the band and the measure of the cup to get the size of your cup. If the amount you get when you calculate for your band size equals that of your cup size, after adding five, your cup size will be A.

  • The difference between the size of cup B and the difference in size of up to one inch is
  • Up to two inches is the size of the cup C
  • Up to three inches is the size of the cup D
  • Up to four inches is the size of the DD cup
  • Up to five inches is the size of the cup E
  • Up to six inches is the size of the F cup
  • Up to eight inches is the size of the cup G

Although the correct size is of utmost importance, there are a few other things you should know. When trying different types of bras, you must make sure that the area between the two cups comes into contact with your chest. Do not let the straps support  your breasts‌  without help. This can become very uncomfortable after long periods of time, as well as the wear of the bra quickly, and pressure on the braces can cause back problems.

The perfect bra

Your bra should hold the entire breast in each cup, without bulging or spilling, and do not leave excessive space in the front of the cups. The bra should rest evenly against the rib cage, with enough room to slide two fingers down the back.  your breasts‌  must be fully supported and stay in place even if the straps are slipped from the shoulders.

Now that you know how important it is that experts have the right size and the right bra, let's look at what types are available and what their different uses are.
