Bra Matrix : What’s your Bra size?

BLOG_POSTED_BY Sweet Tease     २०१७ फेब्रुअरी ३    

Different bra sizes

Does any of the below apply to you ?

  1. You adjust your bra several times during day
  2. Your breasts sway, jump and jiggle when you walk, or go down the stairs
  3. Your bra feels uncomfortable, it’s a relief to take it off
  4. You have small breasts, and wear push-up or padded bras to make them look better
  5. You have big breasts, and your bras look like beige tents
  6. Even when wearing a bra, your breasts sag
  7. You have rolls of fat around your armpits, or back
  8. Your bra straps cut into the skin and feel uncomfortable, but you need to wear them tight to get support.

If you answered YES to one or more of the above, your bra does not fit well.

 

A well-fitting bra:
1. Feels like you are wearing nothing at all. In fact, you may be reluctant to take it off at night.
2. Gives you a beautiful shape of breasts, without padding, no matter what your size or age.
3. Holds your breasts firmly, and does not let them sway or bounce.
4. Is beautiful and sexy, even if it’s a very large size.
5. Does not budge from it’s place, even when you do jumping jacks.

Bra size calculator

Step 1: Determine Your Band Size
While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, measure around the bottom of the band, directly under your bust. The measuring tape should be level and very snug. Round to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add four inches. If it’s odd, add five. Your band size is the sum of this calculation. (So if you measured 32 inches, your band size is 36. If you measured 33 inches, your band size is 38.)

Step 2: Take Your Bust Measurement
Wrap the measuring tape somewhat loosely around the fullest part of your chest (at nipple level). Round to the nearest whole number.

Step 3: Calculate Your Cup Size
Subtract your band size from your bust measurement and refer to chart below. Example: 37 inches (bust) – 34 inches (band) = 3 inches. That’s a 34C.

So how can you tell if a particular style fits? Try these tips:

1. Bend forward at the waist, then slip on the bra and hook it. This ensures your breasts are completely in the cups.
2. Adjust the band. The back of the bra should be level with the front.
3. Make sure the bra is not too loose. You should be able to slide only one finger underneath the band.
4. Fix falling straps. First, tighten the band, then shorten the straps.
5. Put on a close-fitting shirt over the bra. If the cups pucker or your breasts bulge, you're not wearing the correct size.

Look at yourself sideways in a mirror. Your breasts should sit midway between your shoulders and elbows. If not, you need a more supportive and better-fitting bra.

If you need to go down a cup size for fit, go up one band size, and vice versa. For example, if a 34C is too big for you, move to a 36B.

Choose a bra that fits perfectly when secured on the outermost hook. As the bra loosens over time, make the band taut by moving toward the tightest hook.
