The chest of a woman is often highly neglected in most cases nowadays while dressing up. Do you want to know what’s wrong with your dress? Why it fits so shabbily? Change your bra and do yourself a favour. I cannot emphasize on how important it is to find the right bra of the perfect fit for you. You know how just a little bit of mascara can brighten your entire look? It works the same way for a bra. Finding the right bra and pairing it with an appropriate outfit jazzes up your look. Not only does the right bra make you look decent and appropriately presentable I feel it can definitely make you feel much more confident about yourself and boost your self-esteem.
Always remember that breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and embrace what you’ve been gifted with. Finding the right bra is not a rocket science yet most women fail in this.
Often women and in most cases girls don’t find the perfect fit of a bra and ultimately end up having a bra too big for their bust or one that’s too tight, making both highly uncomfortable and ugly-looking!
So here are a few tips and tricks for identifying your correct bra size and finding the right bra for you.
MEASURE YOUR BAND SIZE.
Stand still and place a measuring tape right under your breasts, fairly snug. Your arms should be down while measuring. Take down the number on the measuring tape, if it is an odd number you’ll have to try either a size above or below the measured value. If the number is even then that represents your band size.
MEASURE YOUR CUP SIZE.
Place the measuring tape at the most fuller part of your breast, bending and aligning your upper body parallel to the ground usually does the trick. Place the measuring tape straight to avoid uneven measurements. It is very important to know your cup size for finding the right bra for you.
Measure your cup size using this guide:
- Less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) = AA
- 1 inch (2.5 cm) = A
- 2 inches (5 cm) = B
- 3 inches (7.5 cm) = C
- 4 inches (10 cm) = D
- 5 inches (12.5 cm) = DD
- 6 inches (15 cm) = DDD (E in UK sizing)
- 7 inches (18 cm) = DDDD/F (F in UK sizing)
- 8 inches (20.5 cm) = G/H (FF in UK sizing)
- 9 inches (23 cm) = I/J (G in UK sizing)
- 10 inches (25.5 cm) = J (GG in UK sizing)
KNOW THE WAY A BRA SHOULD FIT.
Before going out and investing in a good bra you should know the basics of how a bra should fit on a body. The band of the bra should be placed right under your breasts and your hooks at the back should be in the middle and not extremely up or down on your back.
Your cups should be able to hold your breasts in place, they shouldn’t be small or too big as this can make your chest look very odd and out of place. While trying on a bra always remember to check if your bra is comfortable and you’re able to hook your first hooks, as the bra elastic will stretch over time and loosen. This is one of the best ways for finding the right bra for you.
I hope these tips help you get the best bra of the perfect fit for you. Investing in a good bra is like investing in confidence, wearing the perfect bra will boost your esteem and help you thrive. Bras are a staple in every wardrobe and even if they stay hidden under layers it is highly important to invest in the right bra no matter what the price may be. Always remember to choose a trusted company that uses standardized sizes of measurement and are specialized for making lingerie. Always remember the key to the best fit is trying, trying and trying.
