Measure Your Breast Size

Right size measurement of your breast can help you buy your first super comfortable bra. Basically bra size is the combination of band size and cup size. Sizes can be measured with a simple measuring tape in inches and centimeters. Band size is the size of the area under your breast touching your ribcage and all around your back. Cup size means the size of the fullest part of your breast.

Just use a tape and move around your ribcage and back under your breast for measuring band size.

And move around the tape over the fullest part of your breast and also around back to measure cup size. Don’t dig in the tape instead place it firmly and flat on the skin.

Once you get your band and cup size you can use an online bra size calculator to know your exact size or you can have a word with the salesperson in the shop before buying your bra.

Do measure your size after every six months as your breast size changes initially.

Try it in a Right Way

Never buy a bra without trying it. As trying, make you understand which style suits your body shape and offers you the right amount of support and comfort. Wear a t-shirt when going out for bra shopping as it will give you an idea about shape and size you get after wearing a kind of bra even under a thin fabric. Avoid the bras whose straps are digging into your skin, if gaps between the cups are too big, and if boob bulging from top appears.
