The Right Way To Wear Bra | Bra Fitting Guide

Finding the right size bra is often a trouble for many women; estimates are that about 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. This is not healthy for your breasts – especially if the breasts are in a too tight bra.

Let your breasts have free time from bras daily – it’s best to spend more than 12 hours of your day bra-free. This will help the lymph flow inside your breasts. And when choosing a bra, try to get yourself fitted by a professional.

Finding the band size

There is NO consensus in these measurement methods (unfortunately). Different opinions exist. So no matter what measuring system you use, you still need to try the garment on to be sure it actually fits. It’s worth noting though that a too large band size is one of the most common errors women make in bra fitting.

Have someone measure around your chest with a tape measure, just under your breasts, and around the back. Make sure the tape measure rests flat on the skin and goes straight across your back.

The “old” advice has been to add 5 inches to this measurement – and then that is your band size(also called chest size). HOWEVER, adding only 2-3 inches (instead of 5) works far better for most women. You can even try not adding any to the measurement you get, and just using that as your band size. This is because the band is elasticated, and because the bra band needs to fit snugly so it can provide about 80-90% of the support for the breasts – and then the straps (shoulders) only carry about 10-20% of the load.

If you end up with an odd number, go up to the next even number, since bras usually only come in even-numbered band sizes.

As always, try the bra on, and let that be the final determining factor. If the bra band rides up on your back, the band is too large (loose) and you need to go down in the band size.

Finding the cup size

Measuring the cup size is trickier; even with a measurement it is better to try on different bras and find out experimentally which one fits.
