How precise should I measure?

Measure your underbust and bust precisely.

How?

The best practice is to measure several times in a row and write down the outcome.

For measuring your bust hold the tape, not too tight, around the fullest part of your breasts.


Why measure regurarly?

  • your body and breasts may have changed in size
  • it’s normal that you might fit more than one bra size, and both sizes fit you just fine
  • it is also a matter of personal preferences when choosing your bra size
  • some women really dislike a tight band of the bra and tend to choose a looser band
  • it is a thing of trial and error
  • you might have 1 best bra size
  • you might have 2 or maybe 3 sizes that fit you fine, depending on the model and brand of the bra
  • learn how to measure your bust around the fullest part of your breasts

Any plus-size woman can become a bra lover. And maybe you already are. That’s great. The fact is that lots of women do not wear their right bra size. Researches tell us 60 to 80 percent of women do not wear the right bra size.

Any bra can be comfortable as long as the size is right for you.

Of course, it also a matter of personal preference. Some women dislike a wired bra and never wear one. Other women wear various styles of bras.

I must say, it was only after finding out my best bra size, I do now happily wear wired bras as well.

  • wearing the wrong bra size is surely not comfortable
  • you’ll be feeling the bra all day long, either being too loose or too tight
  • a wrong-sized bra may even cause pain

I personally have three different bra sizes in my lingerie drawer, and they all fit me fine.

I’m in between two band sizes, so I choose a different band size sometimes depending on the bra style and brand. To keep the same cup volume I go up or down a cup to keep the same cup volume.
