For women, the bra is essential underwear. Choosing underwear must be more rigorous than buying other clothes. The correct size and fitting bras can help adjust the breast shape and take care of our breasts. If your bra is often too tight or has problems such as sliding shoulder straps, empty cups, etc., you can be sure that your bra size is wrong. Any woman who wears the wrong bra size knows that the bra may ruin a fashion outfit or a whole day, and breast and back pain are sometimes unbearable.

Bra Size Guide
Before choosing, you need to know that the bra size consists of two parts: the bust and the cup, which are generally in the form of numbers and letters, such as 75A, 34B, etc. The numbers represent the underbust size, and the letters represent the cups. Based on the two dimensions of band and bust, we can calculate our cup and bra size.

How to measure the bra size?
Learning how to measure your bra size is very important. The tool for measuring bra size is straightforward. You only need a tape measure and 20 minutes, and then you can avoid the pain of buying a bra. The most important thing is that knowing how to measure the band and bust can make you aware of the changes in your breasts caused by weight, hormones, aging, pregnancy, etc., which is good for your health. Check our tips below.
1. Your band sizeStand upright. The soft tape should be close to the bottom of the breast, horizontally around the back at the band level, then get your band sizes. The final size allows plus or minus 2.5cm. For example, your band circumference is 77cm, then you should wear a size 75 bra.
2. Your cup size
Standing in front of the mirror, wrap a soft measuring tape. The tape needs to surround the highest point of the breast horizontally, which is the size of your bust. If the result has decimals, we advise using an integer, such as 36.3inches, which is 37inches. The cup size is the difference between the bust circumference minus the band circumference.
