Approximately 80% of all women seem to be wearing the wrong bra size, that is 8 out of 10 to be exact. Women who think that they maintain the same size bra are wrong too; your size changes at least 6 times during your lifetime! Your body changes when you lose weight or when you gain weight and a pregnancy is another reason for size changes.

Besides the fact that wearing the wrong bra size just doesn’t look good it is bad for your back too, especially when your breasts are of a larger size. Time to pay attention and learn how to choose the right bra!

Choosing the right bra starts with measuring your cup size. You can very easily do this yourself. All you need is a tape measure and a mirror.

  1. Measure your chest size: measure the size of your chest from under your breasts. Make sure the measuring tape is straight at the front and the back (the mirror can come in handy here) this can be fairly tight, seeing as the bra is made out of stretchy material and the tape measure out of platic.

2. Measure your cup size: to measure your cup size you measure the full portion of your breasts, this meaning a nipple level.

You can find your bra size in this table.

Now that you’ve found the prefect bra size it’s important to find a bra that suits your wardrobe, personal style and is comfortable. But first some more tips on finding the perfect bra:

1. Buy the right size! Measure tightly around the chest under the breasts. The bra’s fabric with mostly likely stretch, the bra is made out of more stretch than the tape measure.

2. Check whether a ‘double’ breast is created. If this happens the bra is too small.
3. Going for a bra with underwire? Make sure the wire doesn’t end on but next to the breasts.

4. Make sure the bra fit the objective that you have for it. Pick a sports bra for sports, a smooth bra for tight outfits, a push-up for more bosom, etc.
