What a pain in the b ..... breast to buy a bra!




Oprah Winfrey has already had a few programs highlighting how to pick your right sized bra. Several studies show that most women wear the wrong size bra. It should be a relatively simple task to buy the right bra, but it is not for most of us. 

How do you find the right bra for you? 

The right bra is going to give you good support, which will result in better look and feel, and help you have the right posture. A well-fitted bra will be more comfortable and it will help you avoid even some back problems. 


What is a bra size?
A bra has a cup size and a band size. Both of these have to fit right.


The cup is a measured with letter AA, A, B, C, D, DD and so on. The bigger is the cup, the bigger the breast size.

The band size is more or less the size of your torso at the low point of your breast. The skinnier you are, the smaller it will be. The smallest, most common size is 32, but there is a size 30 as well, and in Asia, there are even smaller sizes.

How to find the right bra size for you
The experts interviewed by Oprah recommended that you should be measured at a bra boutique or a department store such as Nordstrom. Here are some general recommendations:

1- Measure your torso right under the breast line, the ribcage. Add 5 inches to the measurement - this is more or less your standard band size. This will give you an approximation to try on bras, but it is only a starting point. 

2- Cup Size Even thought there are formulas to find your right cup size, according to our research, they do not work very well. You should, therefore, if possible, go to be measured at a store such as Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom or read the next paragraph. But in some those shops they have trained personnel and this is a free service. They can measure you and suggest sizes and styles but only you can judge if the bra feels right for you.
