Breasts are such beautiful things. They deserve to be encased comfortably in a way that shows off their beauty whilst covering them. That doesn’t happen when you wear a bra that doesn’t fit. Ill fitting bras feel irritating, and sometimes they hurt. If they are too small your breasts either spill over the cups, which dig in and make your bountiful fruits look a little bit — sliced. If the bras are too big then there’s not enough filling them, which eventually deflate like a soccer ball that has lost some air.
Moreover, if you wear a bra that flattens and doesn’t flatter, you’d end up not with two breasts, but with what pop culture has labeled “the uniboob”, which does not sound like something that should belong to planet earth, much less Plantation, Florida.
So how does one make sure that a bra fits well? Here are some tips:
* First thing is to know your size, so bring out your tape measure. Put the tape around you just below your breasts, not tightly but right next to your skin, breath out all the air from our lungs, and measure yourself. That’s your band size. Next is to measure yourself right over the bust. Make sure that you’re wearing an unpadded bra for this. Or you may bend over so your torso is parallel to the ground and take the measurement. This number will determine your cup size. Commit these measurements to memory. Subtract your band size from this number and round off to the nearest inch. A difference of 1 inch means you’re an A cup, 2 inches means you’re a B cup, and 3 inches means a C cup, and so on.
* Now the shopping part. This is where it gets tricky as different brands have different ways of labeling the numeral part of their bra sizes (i.e. the “34” in 34C). Some brands will take the number from the band size measurement, so if you’ve measured say a 34.5 in your underbust, then you’re a 34. But some brands use the traditional way of taking it from the bustline, so if you’ve measured 35.5 on your bustline, round that off to 36, and that’s your size. Add the cup size that you’ve determined beforehand, and you’ve got your bra size.
* Note though that this is just a guide, since manufacturers have different ways of sizing, it is always best to fit a bra in your size and in the surrounding sizes. You’ll know that a bra fits right when you’re filling the cups right, no spillovers and no hollows. You’ll also have to make sure that everything is right next to your skin, especially around the underbust and in the cleavage area. If it doesn’t touch the skin, it’s not the right size.
* Check your bra size again before you start your next round of underwear shopping. You tend to lose or gain weight in time. And when bodies change, boobs could also change, so it’s best to measure yourself again do determine your bra size.
Get the right bra, and you might discover that your breasts look better than you thought, and you might not want that breast augmentation after all.
