Your Correct Fitting For Bra:
If bra rides up at back . . . adjust hook and eye closure to tighten, loosen straps or try a smaller band size (34 instead of 36).
If band digs in . . . order one band size larger (36 instead of 34) or opt for a bra with a wider band.
If sides bulge . . . order one band size larger (36 rather than 34) or choose a style that provides more cup coverage.
If cups overflow . . . order one cup size larger (C to D) or one band size larger (34 to 36).
If shoulders are sore . . . loosen bra or opt for a bra with wider, or padded straps.
If bustline sags . . . shorten straps, avoid stretchy fabrics or choose a firmer support style with rigid straps.
If underwires pinch or poke . . . order one cup size larger (B to C) or try a non-underwire soft cup style.
If straps slip . . . tighten straps or opt for bra with wider straps.
Are you sure you know your size?
To check your bra size, you need only take two measurements which are -
1. Underbust Measurement
Measure under your bust:
add 4ins. if the measurement obtained is an even number of inches
add 5ins. if the measurement obtained is an odd number of inches.
(For example, if your underbust measurement is 31ins., add 5ins. to obtain bra size 36, or, if your underbust measurement is 30ins. add 4ins. to obtain bra size 34.)
2. Overbust Measurement
Measure round the fullest part of your bust to determine Cup size.
If the bust measurement: is:
same as your bra size, your Cup size is A.
1in. more gives Cup size B
2in. more gives Cup size C
3in. more gives Cup size D
4in. more gives Cup size DD
5in. more gives Cup size E
and so on through F, FF and G
Underbust measurement of
29in. + 5in. = bra size 34
Overbust measurement of
34in. = Cup A
So the correct fitting would be 34A.
