You May Not Know It, But the Bra You are Wearing Might Be the Wrong Size or Style for You
Here are a few hints to make sure your bra fits you correctly.
It is estimated that between 75% and 85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. To find your bra size: 1. Measure under your arms, fairly tightly, around the top of your chest. An even number is your band size. With an odd number, add one inch to it. 2. Measure fairly loosely, around the fullest part of your bust (this is your cup size). 3. Then subtract your band measurement from your cup measurement (each inch is your cup size). For example, if your cup is 36 “, and your band size is 34”, then you need a B cup (subtract 34 form 36).
Here are some signs that you are wearing the wrong size bra: 1. If you do not fill out the cups, or if your cup edges do not lay flat against your breasts, try a smaller size. If your bosom is overflowing your bra, or the center panel does not lay flat against your breastbone, try a larger band size, or one with a fuller cup style. If you cannot run your finger around the edge of the front band comfortably, try a larger band size. If your straps dig into your shoulder, try a bra with wider straps.
Problems: If your breasts sag, try a seamless underwire bra for support. If your breasts do not fill out a strappy top, try a strapless push-up bra to enhance your cleavage. For a small bosom, try a push-up bra, and for a large one, try a minimizer bra. If your breasts point outward, without forming any cleavage, try a lightly padded bra, or one with pads (cookies). The important thing is to provide support for your breasts.
When you wear the correct bra size, you not only look sexier, but you feel sexier. You will have more confidence and be happier with your figure.
