Knowing the correct size of bra to wear is very important because it adds to your overall elegant look. You don’t want to go out with your breasts looking saggy. A well fitted bra will always enhance your beautiful outfit.
A perfectly fit bra must have the following features:
The straps must sit securely on the shoulders while you can adjust them as needed. Your straps should not be loose or sliding down your shoulders from time to time.
The breasts must sit comfortably in the cups with the underwire flat against the chest. The nipples should not be popping out of the cups or moving around at the slightest movement of the body.
The band must sit straight around the body and the fitness secure. The band should neither be loose nor too tight but must be firm and secure around the body. It should fit such that there is no chance of its unhooking by itself.
The centre gore must lie flat on the chest. This means that the centre gore should touch the chest and lie flat on it not shooting out or away from the body.
If you don’t know your accurate bra size you can find out by yourself. You can measure yourself with a tape rule and enter the numbers into any bra size chart online.
Determine band size
Wrap your measuring tape around your ribcage, directly and evenly under your bust; record the number.
Determine cup size
Wrap measuring tape around your chest, so that the tape crosses over the fullest part of your bust. Hold securely, not tightly, record that number also.
Find your fit
With the measurement numbers you have recorded refer to the chart below or any Bra Measurement Chart online.
The first part of the chart is for your under-bust, which is your band size, while the second part is for your over-bust, which tells your cup-size.
A well fitted bra will complement your outfit and boost your confidence.
