Shopping for a bra and finding one that fits correctly is a very frustrating process. Courtney from Bra Fitting by Court is here to help us find the right fit!
Hey out there! I’m really excited to be talking about the next topic in my blog series, “Bra Guide”. My first post was about How Bras Should and Shouldn’t Fit and received an overwhelming amount of response from ladies around the world asking me their bra questions, concerns, and issues. It was so exciting! I’ve had a lot of questions asked about bra sizing 101 and so that is what I’m going to be talking about today! Yahoo!
In this post I’m going to cover what the numbers and letters mean and corresponding sizes. Once you understand how bra sizing works, it will make finding a bra that fits so much easier! This topic is SO IMPORTANT! Make sure you sit back, grab a Diet Coke, and hang on. This is going to change your world!
I’m going to use myself as an example. My bra size is a 30D. Now what the heck does that mean? The measurement of my band or or underbust is 29″ which means I would wear a 30 band. There is a chart below that shows you the corresponding underbust measurements with the band size.
Finding your band size is really easy, all you have to do is take a measuring tape and measure the very top of your rib cage or underbust measurement. You want the tape to be snug and not loose when measuring. Once you have your measurement round it up to the nearest WHOLE number. That’s your band size! Yahoo!
