    How to Measure for a Plus Size Bra

    Wearing the right size bra ensures comfort and maximum support. Amazingly, over 80% of women wear the wrong bra size! Their bras are usually too big around the band while the cups are too small. Wouldn’t they want something that fits right? Here’s how to measure correctly:

    ● For the band size: While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, wrap measuring tape around your back and just under your breasts. This number is your band number. If you get an odd number, simply round up to the nearest even number.
    ● For the cup size: Bring the measuring tape around the back and over the fullest part of your breasts. This is your bust measurement. Then, subtract the band number from the bust number to get a difference that represents a cup size. 2=B, 3=C, etc. For example, if your band is 38 and your bust is 43, you’ll get a difference of 5, or a DD cup.

    How to Fit a Plus Size Bra

    Once you’ve discovered your bra size, it’s time to play with some sexy choices. Maybe you like lace or something more casual. Perhaps you enjoy a plunging neck instead of full coverage. No matter your unique style, bra shopping can be fun. However, you have to make sure everything feels good. Besides looking and feeling fantastic, there are other ways you can tell if a bra fits well:

    ● You feel secure and supported. 
    ● Nothing should be poking, prodding, or hurting.
    ● The band feels nice and snug, but not tight. 
    ● The band in between the cups is sitting flat against you.
    ● When you lift your arms, the bra stays put. Your breasts shouldn’t pop out over the cups.


    Why You Need the Right Bra Size

    The right bra size can mean the difference between having a good day and having a bad one. You want to feel comfortable and supported all day long, otherwise, you’ll be miserable. Wearing the wrong size not only makes you look uncomfortable, but it also causes health issues. Here are some signs of a badly fitting bra:
    ● You have headaches, neck pain, and back pain. A good bra will support from beneath the breasts, not from the shoulders.
    ● Circulation and skin problems. Bras shouldn’t chaff, scratch, or be pulled uncomfortably tight.
    ● Your breasts look bulky and out of place. They have to be supported and secure with a good bra.
    ● Bad posture. A good bra will help with posture, make you appear slimmer, and help your clothes fit better.
