Understanding Bra Size

Sometimes it's hard being a woman. You have to deal with menstruation and hormones plus unattainable media images of what it means to be female. Aside from that you have to worry about a job, your family, the laundry, what to make for dinner, chauffeuring the kids from school to dance class to soccer practice, and making sure the bathroom gets cleaned. Phew. The last thing you want to worry about is your bra. However, your bra is something you should devote some time and money to. You may think that having a well fitting bra is no big deal, but you should know that a bra that fits is important and will give you confidence in other areas of your life.

I'm sure you can relate to the confidence that accompanies looking fabulous. When you look good, it helps you feel good; and conversely, when you feel good, you want to look good—you want it to show. One of the most basic ways for you to improve your appearance—and thus improve your overall mood—is to have a bra that fits. If your bust looks good, then it will make the rest of your body look even better.

If you're going to have a bra that fits, then you need to understand bra size, a concept that eludes many. And while the letters and numbers of a bra size may seem a little overwhelming at first, they actually aren't that hard to decipher. The number corresponds with your band size, the measurement of the area just under your bust. (This is where the band of the bra goes.) And the letter designates your cup size, the part of the bra that will actually support your breasts. If you want to fit yourself for a bra then measure how many inches you are around just underneath your bust and then how big you are around the biggest part of your actual bust. However, cup sizes are proportional to the band size, and the cup sizes actually vary according to the brand and band size. You'd do best to be professionally fitted for a bra. Yes, there are professionals who know what to look for in a bra and what makes a bra fit.

Finding a bra that fits just right will take time, and it make cost you some money to buy a good, quality bra; however, the time and money are worth it—trust me. When your bust looks good, you feel better about yourself. Do yourself a favor, and buy a bra that fits, allowing your body to look its very best.
