As a rule, women pay special attention to the clothes they buy. They choose them very carefully paying attention to quality, colors, fabric, and size. So in the majority of cases we buy really great clothes that fit us perfectly.
However, very often, it’s rather hard to choose a proper bra. There are many styles and materials, and every woman is unique, that’s why we experience some difficulties, while choosing bras. Anyway, it’s important to buy only that one that fits you perfectly.
Too tight or too loose bras can lead to some problems that can be rather difficult to solve. That’s why today, we have decided to provide you with the following information. Below can see a guide that will help you to choose the bra that will fit you perfectly.
The first thing you should know is your bra size for each type of bras. That’s why it is important to determine it. Before doing it, you should know that you should feel comfortable in your bra. It shouldn’t be tight or loose. You should also hook it on the first eye.
The next thing you should know that if your bra is constantly riding up your back, and you have pull it down, it means that you should choose a smaller one. The straps of your bra shouldn’t dig into your shoulders and the wires shouldn’t dig into your skin.
The size of the cup also differs
While choosing your bra, you should pay attention to the fact that the size of the cup also differs. When you wear your bra, your breasts should be on the level between your elbows and shoulders.
The cups and the straps support your breasts, so it is important to adjust the straps so that you feel the most comfortable. However, even if you follow all the rules mentioned above, there are not guarantees that every bra type will fit you. That’s why it is important to try all the types until you find your perfect one.
A number and a letter
To choose the proper size you should know that the size that you can see on your bra consists of two parts – a number and a letter. The numerical part indicates the size of the band, and the letter indicates the size of the cup. For instance, if you have a bra with the size 36A, “36” is the band size, and “A” is the cup size.
To find out your exact bra size you should measure both sizes separately. To get the accurate result you should go braless or in a thin T-shirt while getting measurements. A great option will be to ask the experts to help you. In this way you’ll determine your size faster and there will be no any doubts that it is accurate.
If you have decided to make the measurements yourself, here are some instructions how to do it correctly. The best thing will be to stand in front of the mirror to make sure that the tape is placed properly.
You should wrap the tape around
It should be placed where the band sits. Make sure that it’s not too tight or loose. If you have got an uneven number, you should round it off to the even one that goes next. For instance, if you got 35 or 35.5, your size is 36. Write down this number.
Now you should determine the letter that will indicate your cup size. You should wrap the tape around your chest. Make sure that you have wrapped it around the fullest part of your breast. You should do it at the nipple level to get the most accurate results.
If you have got uneven number, round it off like you did it before and write down the results. Then you should subtract the size of the cup from the size of the band. The difference between the numbers will be your cup size. Number 0 is AA, number 1 is A, number 2 is B, number 3 is C, number 4 is D, and number 5 is E.
Take care of your bra
When you manage to find your perfect bra, it’s important to take care of it. You should wash your bra once every two wears. However, it also depends on the climate, if you live in a hot country, you should wash it after every wear.
You should also avoid washing it in the machine. You also shouldn’t use your bra longer than half a year. Even if it is your favorite one, you should be strong and let it go.
So, as you can see, it’s not that easy to choose a perfectly fitting bra since there are many types. However, if you make a little effort and determine your exact bra size, you’ll definitely manage to find your perfect one. Good luck!
