Signs You're Wearing the Wrong Bra Size
Even though women of all ages buy and wear bras, it seems that few people discuss the importance of a bra fitting. It's important to wear the correct band and cup size for maximum comfort and support. If you often feel uncomfortable in your bras, you may be wearing the wrong size. Luckily, we're here to help. Let's take a look at a few signs that it might be time for a different size:
- The bra straps dig into your shoulders and leave painful marks.
- You are constantly readjusting your bra throughout the day.
- The band feels too tight or too loose.
- You have uncomfortable underwire over your breasts.
- There are gaps in the bra cups.
- Your breasts overflow out of the bra cups.
- You can't move around freely.
Finding Your Bra Size
There's nothing worse than wearing straps that are too tight or struggling with an uncomfortable band. Finding a quality bra that offers a high level of comfort and support is crucial to ensuring lasting comfort all day long. If you don't know what size bra you wear, then you may need to go in for a professional fitting.
Step 1: Measure your band size
Take a snug measurement around your rib cage, directly under your bust and level around your body. Round to the nearest inch.
Step 2: Measure your cup size
Take a loose measurement over the fullest part of your bust, keeping tape level around your body. Round to the nearest inch.
