How to Measure your Breast Size
One of the big problems when it comes to women buying bras is that many don’t know how to measure their breast size correctly. Some women buy the same size bra their entire life when their breast size may have changed. Some clothing websites say that 80% of women wear the wrong bra size. Measuring for your bra size is quite simple, simply put a tape measure around you directly underneath your breast and write down the measurements in inches. You will want to make sure that it is a snug fit and that you take the measurement when your arms are down. Now take that number and round it to the closest even number, such as if your measurement tape says that it is 31 inches, you should use a band size of 32.
To measure the cup size, you first need to measure your bust. To do this, run the tape measure around the largest part of your bust. Make sure that the fit is a loose one and that you are standing straight. Now round the number you get up to the closest whole number. To get your cup size, simply subtract the band measurement from the measurement you got when you measured your bust. If there is an inch different, you’re an A cup. Two inches difference means that you’re a B cup, three inches means that you’re a C cup, while four inches means that you’re a D cup. You should go up one cup size for every inch that is different.
Go For More Expensive
There are cheap bras that will work for a day to day basis for women with a bigger bust, but if you want to find something that is more stylish and more sexy you will have to be willing to spend some money. This doesn’t mean that you have to pay for the most expensive bras you can find, but they will probably cost more than you would imagine. A decent, supportive and sexy bra will probably run you anywhere from thirty to fifty dollars.
When you have a bigger bust, life can be frustrating. You may have to work to find a bra that suits you the best, but once you finally get the right measurement and find the right store, your bigger bust will become a benefit and not a hassle.
