I’m sure we all understand the importance of a perfect fitting bra by now. After all, it does have an impact on your posture, the way your clothes fit, and of course your confidence, amongst other things. That said, does everyone understand the importance of knowing how to measure yourself, to ensure you wear the right size bra? With multiple lingerie brands having their unique size charts, knowing how to measure your bra size is of utmost importance. And the best part is, it’s an extremely simple and easy process that requires nothing more than a mirror, your best fitting bra and a measuring tape. Let’s list down the steps involved in measuring yourself:
- Start by taking the measuring tape around your rib cage, directly underneath your breasts. Make sure the tape sits firm against your body, and perpendicular to the ground. Ensure that it doesn’t ride down or up your back.
- Next, measure your cups by taking the tape around the fullest part of your bust. Ensure you don’t hold it too tight, just lightly around.
Keep in mind that decimal readings can be rounded off to the closest lower value for a snug fit, and the closest higher value for a looser fit.
There you go. Quick and easy, just as promised 🙂 Try this out and let us know if this helped. To make it even simpler for you, watch our video that shows you how to get it right!
