Selecting the correct Bra size is very important because the wrong size can lead to back problems, shoulder pain, constant headaches, and bad posture. According to modern research, 80% of women are wearing incorrect bra sizes. Most women are also not aware that if you bought the correct size bra 4-6 months back, it still fits you perfectly now. Multiple reasons are there due to which the bra can lose its shape. A few of the most common reasons are gaining or reducing weight, exercising, nursing, and age can massively alter your bra size. Moreover, wash and wear means bras wear out after a while. The elasticity wears out after a short time, making the straps and band size loser, making it necessary to update your bra wardrobe.
Follow these Bra Fit Steps to get a perfect size:
- Measure your band. Wear a lightly lined (non-push-up) bra. So your breasts are as close to natural as possible. Wrap a measuring tape directly under your breasts. Make sure it’s directly parallel with the bottom of the bra band.
- Now measure your bust. Place the tape at the fullest part of your bust. Make sure it’s parallel to your band again.
- Subtract the band size from your bust size to find the correct cup size. Every inch equals one cup size up.
