Did you know that approx. 80% of all women wear the wrong size bra?
I found this interesting article on Yahoo Canada that gives some great tips to consider when buying a bra:
Step 1: Measure, in inches, the circumference of your ribcage, staying below the breasts. Add 6 to the number if it’s even, 5 if it’s odd. This is your band size.
Step 2: Now measure the circumference of your torso at breast level, keeping the measuring tape at nipple level, again in inches. The result will be larger than your band size. To get your cup size, subtract your band size from the measurement of your breasts at nipple level. The following table indicates which cup size you are according to your calculation
For example, if the first measurement gives you 29, you add 5 to get 34. If the second measurement is 35, you subtract 34 from 35, to get 1. The difference is equal to an A cup.
So your bra size is 34A.
