Option 1: Get professionally fitted
Option 2: Measure yourself (or have someone close to you help you out)Step #1: First and foremost, stand straight and relax
Step #2: Use a soft tape measure to measure all the way around your body. You will want to place the tape right underneath your breasts. Now, here is a little bit of math: If your measurement turns out to be an even number, add four to that number. On the opposite end, if your number is an odd number, add five to that number, rounding up as necessary to the next even number. This will give you your band size
Step #3: You should have a bra on for this step because you will measure around the fullest part of your bust (across the nipple) without closing too tight. It's important to make sure the measuring tape goes straight around the back and is not dipping down
Step #4: More math! Now, you will subtract the number in Step 3 from your band size (i.e., 38 - 36 = 2). This will give you your cup size, according to this guide: 0 = AA 1 = A 2 = B 3 = C 4 = D 5 = DD 6 = DDD There are many different types of bras to invest in: Underwire, push-ups, clear straps, sports bras, strapless – so many possibilities for each body type and according to the activities you plan to do. You would think that, at my age, I should have no problem picking out the perfect fit for my body type, but no, it definitely took a minute to be exactly sure
All in all, having the right bra support can really make or break an outfit, not to mention your overall comfort level. Choose wisely
