Fashion fact of the day: one in ten women, 80% of the female population, is completely clueless as to what their true bra size is. And no, dolls, I’m not joking.
Lingerie, especially of the bra variety, is oftentimes a sticky situation. And why wouldn’t it be? We are expected to know the difference between band and cup sizes; then have to take into consideration the style of the garment in question – strapless, convertible, halter, criss-cross, sports…it’s enough to drive a sane fashionista out of her stylish mind. Soon we will have My Curves & Me to offer assistance (as well as discount codes, members only sales, an awesome range of products, and a specialized consumer panel) and advice in the world of underwear. Until then, I’m going to offer you a few tips on finding the perfect bra fit…
♥Always round an odd band number up to the nearest even number (for example, if you return a 33” after measuring, round up to a 34”).
♥When measuring your bust size, subtract the number you arrive at from the number of your band size (for example, if your bust size is a 36” and your band size is a 34”, subtract 34” from 36” to arrive at 2”). This number indicates what letter cup you are (in this case, a 2 would be equal to a B-cup).
These are the tips that have worked for me in ensuring the best bra fit. What tips, tricks, and techniques do you use to find the best bra fit? Do tell!
