Do you ever feel like you’re constantly pulling up your bra straps or adjusting your bust? If so, it might be time to invest in a bra that actually fits. Bra size is notoriously fickle and can vary between different brands and even over the course of a day. That’s why it’s important to know your measurements and find a bra that fits both in the band and cup.
How to Measure Your Bra Size
Here’s a quick and easy guide to taking your bust measurements:
1. First, you’ll need a soft measuring tape. If you don’t have one, you can use a string or ribbon and then hold it up to a ruler to get the measurement.
2. To find your band size, wrap the measuring tape around your body just under your bust. Make sure it’s level all the way around and write down the number where the two ends meet.
3. To find your cup size, wrap the measuring tape around your body at the fullest part of your bust. Again, make sure it’s level and write down the number where the two ends meet.
4. To get your bra size, simply combine your band size and cup size. For example, if your band size is 34 and your cup size is C, then your bra size would be 34C.
