Tips to Find Your Bra Size

 Can you remember the last time you measured your bra size? If it has been more than six months, there’s a good chance that your letter and number combo may have changed.

Not only do the number and letters change, but do you even know what these represent? Now is the time to find a bra that fits and feels good. This all starts with getting your bra measurements.  

Purpose of the Numbers and Letters in Your Bra Size

The number in the bra measurements represents the band size of the bra. The letter tells you the cup size, which is the difference between the biggest part of your bust and the bend size. When these are taken together, you have determined your bra size or a version of it. That’s because every bra varies slightly in size from one brand to another.

While you can go to a department store to have your bra size measured for you, you probably want to handle this on your own if you are like most. All you need for this is a measuring tape and something to write your numbers on. With a few calculations, you can finally see what a properly fit bra feels like.

Measuring the Band Size

It’s best to be topless when you take this measurement. Wrap the measuring tape around your ribcage, just beneath the bust. The measuring tape should be sitting parallel to the ground.

Make sure you can fit a finger under the measuring tape since if you pull it too tight, you may get a bra that is too tight. For heavier or larger busts, go with a slightly tighter band, but begin with accurate measurements.

Measure Your Bust Size

At this point, you want to measure the fullest (biggest) part of your bust. Be sure to keep the measuring tape parallel to the ground and wrap the tape measurer around your body at the nipples. You may also want to measure your bust while lying down to help you avoid getting an inaccurate number.

Once you have your numbers, you can start shopping. Use these numbers to look at the size charts on the websites where you plan to buy the bra. This will help ensure you get one that is the right size and that will fit you well. In the end, this is going to provide you with a high-quality, well-fit bra that you love to wear.
