This is for those who are looking for an effective method of measuring their bra size. There are some reasons that leads to it:
– Firstly, it is understandable that your bra may get shrinkage after a few times of washing since it was made of a not really good fabric. Good fabrics to make bra should not be types that is easy to get shrinkage. Low stable fabric is neither good one. It’s important to to distinguish 2 terms “Stretchy” and “Shrinkage”.“stretchy” reflect how you bra get back to their original size and shape after shrinking or stretching. It means the stability of your bra in its original size. While, “Shrinkage” maintains the bra smaller thant its original shape and size.
Before deciding to buy a new bra, you could compare its with other kind of fabrics. It’s not take you too much of time to do that as supplier especially manufacturer or wholesaler like a Sports Bras manufacturer, an Activewear bras manufacuturer or a plus size bras manufacturer would always show those information as an important reference information for their customers on the internet.
– Secondly, You may not relize that but your size may have changed. I means that you may have gained or lose your weight. Buying the same old size in this case may not be a good ideal.
– Thirdly,a wrong way of taking your own measurement may leads to the fact that you pay for a not really fitted size.
To determine which part of your bra should be adjusted, just look at how it make you feel uncomfortable. It may be too tight or too loose. In both cases it leads to numerous inconvenience.For example,: wrinkling in the cups, underwire poking the sides of your breasts, a band that rides up, cup spillage, slipping straps, or a bra that hikes up when you lift your arms.
Below are some that you could take to get rid of it
– There are 3 measurements that you need to take: strap, cup and band..
+ Firstly, Start with your band: take the measurement of your bottom of the band right under your bust. The tape should not be too tight or too loose and don’t forget to relax your body. Take the nearst whole number of a round. Add four inches if it is even and five in case that it’s odd to get your band your band size.
+ Secondly, take your cup measurement. Measure your bust with a tape rounding around your chest at the nipple level. Take the nearest whole number too.Don’t forget to measure the distance between 2 cups. I think you could easily compare it with your old bra.
+ Thirdly, caculate your cup size. justsubtract your band size from your bust measurement. And Check the stardardized measurement on the bra size table:
0 inche= AA
1 inche = A
2 inches = B
3 inches = C
4 inches = D
5 inches = DD
6 inches = DDD/F
7 inches = G
So for example, if your band is 35 inch and your cup size you D, you would need a bra of size 35D .That’s easy, right?
– Check your old bra: if you’re sure that your body are at the same size, the change must come from your bra. a good idea is that you could compare the measurements of a bra when you have just bought it and after time using it.
– Some other general notes are:
+ Buy branded bra as it’s hard to get error in parameter thanks to a better condition of quality controlling in industrial manufacturing.
+ Be sure to measure according to the purpose of wearing that bra: different kinds of bra (for example: sport bra, sleep bra, beachwear bra…) should have different measurement.
Hope that my guides help you not regret just because of your so nice bra but not fit you well
