Learn Some Bra Sizing Tips
It’s important to learn some bra sizing tips to get the right bra size. The right bra size can make a big difference in how your clothes fit and how comfortable you are.
Measure Around Your Chest
To find your “band size” (the size of the band around your ribs), measure around your chest, just under your arms, and across your back, making sure the measuring tape is level all the way around. The tape should sit snugly, but not tightly, against your body. Round up or down to the nearest even number to get your band size.
Measure Your Rib Cage
To do this, wrap a measuring tape around your chest, just under your breasts. Breathe in and out a few times, and then take note of the measurement. This is your rib cage measurement.Once you have your rib cage measurement, you can use a size chart to determine your bra size.
Measure Your Bust
You can measure your bust by wrapping a tape measure around your back and chest, under your arms. Make sure the tape measure is level and write down the measurement.
The Support Should Come From the Band
The support should come from the band to get the right bra size for your breast size. The band is the part of the bra that goes around your back and under your arms. It should be made of a comfortable material that will not rub or irritate your skin.
The band should also be firm enough to provide support but not so tight that it hurts or is uncomfortable. If the band is too loose, the bra will not provide adequate support and if it is too tight, it will be uncomfortable to wear. The band should also be wide enough so that it does not dig into your skin or cause any discomfort.
Know How Wireless Bras and Underwire Bras Affect the Size
In general, the underwire provides more support than a wireless bra. If you’re looking for a bra that will give you the most lift and support, look for an underwired style.
Wireless bras are generally more comfortable than underwire bras and are a good choice if you’re looking for a bra to wear on a day-to-day basis. However, if you’re looking for a bra to wear for a special occasion or to an event where you’ll be standing or sitting for long periods, an underwire bra is generally a better choice.
