This Guide Gives Detailed Ways Of How To Measure Yourself For A Bra At Home And Its Pretty Simple

Do you know the size of your bra? and if you do, there’s a good chance you’re wrong. Ask any bra fitter and they’ll be sure to tell you the majority of women leave with a different sized bra to the one they walked in with.
If, like half of the nation, you haven’t bothered to have a bra fitting in six years or still have no idea whether a D is bigger or smaller than a DD, we’re here to help.
While the wrong bra may not seem like a big deal, it can cause some real physical problems.  That’s why we’ve called on the bra fitting experts at  How to measure your bra size
If you’re suffering from any of these bra issues, it’s definitely time to check those measurements. Heading to a professional fitter really is the best way to go. Not only can they measure you up, but they can also advise on the most flattering shape and style,” said the Ann Summers fitter.
To get started, all you need is a full-length mirror, a soft tape measure and your top off. Wear a and be sure to stand up straight
Measure around your ribcage, just below where your bra fits. This is your band measurement.
. Measure around your back and the fullest part of your breasts. A top tip is to use your nipples as guidance. This is your cup measurement.
Round both measurements to the nearest whole number.
Calculate your cup size by subtracting your band size (in step one) from your cup size (in step two). Every inch difference is another cup size up e.g. 1 inch equals A, 2 inches equals B, 3 inches equals Now before you think that you’re all done, you’re not. While this gives you an approximate bra size, it won’t necessarily be totally accurate. That’s because boobs vary in shape which is totally normal, by the way.
While a tape measure can tell you the right size in terms of numbers, it’s not always the key to finding the perfect fit. The only way to truly get your size spot on is through good old trial and error. Once you have a bra on, you’ll be able to tell if it fits in all the right places, provides the perfect level of support.

First up, the band itself. This should sit firm and straight. You should also be able to get two fingers under it but feel a little resistance. If it’s too loose, you need a smaller size. If you’re struggling to get your fingers in, then you should try the next size
The straps are a key part of your bra. You’ll be forgiven for thinking that the tighter the straps the more support they provide, but they should actually sit comfortably on the shoulder without any pinching or sliding. Be sure to check they are equal on both sides.

Also known as the ‘bra bridge’, this is the little bit of fabric nestled snuggly between your boobs. It should sit flat to your body without any room underneath but also not digging into your skin. If you can see a gap, you need to go up in size.
If you’re testing out a bra with wiring, be sure to check it fits properly. These should follow the natural curve at the base of your breast. If they’re sitting on it or too far below, they won’t do their job and this is where a large amount of support comes from.

If all the other elements are adjusted correctly, your cups should be smooth and perfectly moulded to the line curve of your breast. Remember the warning signs we mentioned above; any wrinkles or sagging, move on.
So there you have it – your complete bra-fitting guide.
Now with the right size sitting snug on your breasts, not only do you get better support, but you’ll also feel even sexier
