Use a tape measure to determine your bra size.
The British Chiropractic Association states that wearing the wrong bra size is a leading cause of back pain among women. If you haven’t measured yourself lately, there’s a good chance that you’re currently wearing the wrong size. Your bra size will change whether you gain or lose weight or even just get older. You need the correct bra size in order to spread out carrying the weight of your breasts. Fortunately, it’s quite easy to measure the breasts for the correct bra cup size. Does this Spark an idea?
1. Wrap the tape measure around your rib cage, just under the breasts. This measurement should be in inches.
2. Add 4 inches if the measurement is an even number or 5 inches if the measurement is odd. This is the band measurement for your bra.
3. Wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of the breast. Note the measurement.
4. Subtract the bust measurement from the band measurement. Each inch represents a cup size. For example, if there is 1 inch difference, your correct cup size is “A”; if the difference is 2 inches, your cup size is “B”; a 3 inch difference, your correct cup size is “C”; and so on.
