Finding your correct bra size

by Laura Kronen on October 22, 2010

18__320x240_istock_000009335498xsmallHaving worked for a lingerie company for many years, it is surprising to learn how many women are wearing the wrong size bra:  a whopping 75% !  Not only is that uncomfortable, but you also aren’t doing anything to improve the appearance of the girls.

Follow these rules and I am going to be your new “breast friend:”

  • If your cups runneth over, it’s time to go up a cup size.
  • If your cups dimple, it’s time to go down a cup size.
  • If you have the dreaded back fat, you probably think your bra is too tight, but you’re wrong—your bra is too big. Wearing the bra lower on your back with a smaller band size will completely eliminate the back fat.
  • If your strap falls down, that means your bra band is riding up and you probably need to go down a band size.

Here’s another tip: You shouldn’t wear the same bra two days in a row because you’ll wear out the support elastic and the memory of the bra.
