How to choose the right bra size

Choosing the right size underwear is crucial to ensuring comfort, confidence and an optimal fit. However, with the variety of styles, cuts, fabrics and brands available in the market, this can sometimes become a challenge. Follow this detailed guide to help you navigate through the nuances of selecting sizes for different types of underwear.

How to take chest measurements

Measure your bust circumference (back circumference)

  • Get a measuring tape.

  • Pass it around your ribcage, just below the chest.

  • Make sure the tape is snug, but not too tight.

  • Round to the nearest ten to get your band size.

Measure your chest size

  • Place the tape at the tip of the breasts, without tightening.

  • Make sure the tape is horizontal and parallel to the floor.

  • Round to the nearest ten.

Calculating cup size

  • Start by defining your size using your bust measurement: measuring in centimeters will allow you to determine your size.

  • Next, determine your cup size based on your bust measurement.

  • By combining these two measurements you will get your bra size.

Choosing the right cup size

  • Make sure the bra fits snugly without the cup bunching or overflowing.

  • The straps should fit snugly but not dig into the skin.

Adapt according to brands

Correctly adjust your bra hooks

The back band of your bra, from the cup to the back, should be parallel to the floor. If the back rises, this may indicate incorrect positioning of the staples. Ideally, middle positioning is recommended, allowing two fingers to slip between the bra fabric and your back.

Adapt the straps to your body shape

Since the length from the top of the shoulder to the point of the breast can vary, adjust the straps according to your body shape for optimal comfort. Check that they are not too tight by running a finger between the shoulder and the strap to ensure a proper fit. If you have a generous bust, opt for wider straps for better support.

Avoid the bra band riding up the back

If the band rides up despite the clips, adjust the straps to avoid this effect. If this persists, the bra is probably too big; opt for a smaller back size without changing the cup size.

How to position the bra correctly

Position the bra correctly

If your cups are creased, it is likely that the model is too big. Choose a smaller bra size both in terms of back measurement and cup size.

Consult the brand's size guide

  • Each manufacturer may have variations in their sizes, so always refer to the brand-specific size guide for maximum accuracy.
In conclusion, the key to choosing the perfect underwear size lies in measuring your body accurately, knowing different types of cuts, and understanding fabric characteristics. Don't hesitate to try different brands to find the ones that best suit your body type. A proper fit is not only essential for comfort, but it can also improve self-confidence by making you feel good about yourself.
