I wear sports bras almost every day. They are super comfortable and my tops fit great.
On the rare occasion I try to buy a regular bra, I struggle with the decision. I have never been correctly measured by a professional.
I googled how to determine a bra size and found that as many as 60% of all women are wearing the wrong size.
Here is what the internet suggests for getting the right size:
Step 1: Measure around your ribcage just under the bust.
Step 2: Add 5 inches to this number and this is your band size.
Step 3: Measure the fullest part of your bust. Subtract this number from Step 2. For every 1" difference, this is a cup size.
I did this and realized I was wearing the wrong size! I went down a band size and up a cup size. What a difference!
Have you measured yourself lately? Losing or gaining even a few pounds may make you change bra sizes.
