Your New Bra Support the Right Size

by: Robb Ksiazek

Eighty percent of women are rumored to be wearing the wrong bra size. Thats eight out of ten! They are facing discomfort and back pain that are unnecessary. Whether you are wearing your bras for supportive comfort, sex appeal, or nursing, it needs to fit right for it to function properly.

There are what seems like hundreds of companies that manufacture and sell bras, and there are just about as many sizing discrepancies. Bras are just like any other clothing item. Each companys sizes are slightly different. The right size bra is more important than other apparel items, due to the nature of the product.

Getting properly sized for your bra can be accomplished in a couple ways. Lingerie stores will size your bra on your next trip to their store. Unfortunately, many women feel uncomfortable having a stranger size them.

Many women are now turning to internet lingerie stores for their shopping. Online intimate apparel companies embrace the web because it creates a unique format for their customers. Women like to shop online for bras, panties, and stockings. It is discrete and convenient.

Shopping online does create a problem with sizing. Since you are not entering the store to be sized, you have to take it upon yourself to get the right measurements. There is a simple equation for finding your proper bra size. Even though many companies will vary in size, it is still the best option. The steps are easy:

  • Find a tailors tape for the measurement.
  • Measure around the ribcage, just under the breasts. This is the number portion of the size. For example, it is the 34 in the size 34C.
  • Measure around the breasts at the fullest part. Leave about half inch slack for comfort.
  • Add five inches to the second number.
  • Subtract first number from the second measurement number.

The difference between the first and second number is the cup size. If there is no difference, the bra cup size is A. One inch is a B size; two inch difference is a C cup, and so on.

Bra sizes are A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, FF, and G. Some companies have developed half sizes for those that are trapped in between. The right size bra will not feel tight, ride up in the back, or leave imprints in the skin from clasps or straps.

When you are wearing the right size bra, youll notice the difference. Just remember that your size will change over time. Common causes of changes in size are:

  • Fluctuations in weight five pounds is enough
  • Pregnancy
  • Changes in muscle tone starting or stopping and exercise routine

Your body is constantly changing, so just make sure that you are taking your bra size into consideration. It is important to get remeasured about every year, or when there are obvious reasons to do so. Your body is worth exact fit. It wont cost any more, just some time.
