It’s no secret that plus size women struggle to find bras that would provide a proper fit. In fact, this is a problem women all around the world are facing. A study conducted by a large undergarment company reveals that eight out of ten women in the U.S. are wearing the wrong cup size. It doesn’t help that bra manufacturers have different standards when it comes to sizes larger than the D cup. To ensure that you buy the right bra with a proper fit, here are a few tips you can follow:
Don’t choose a bra by cup size.
As mentioned earlier, bra manufacturers differ when it comes to sizes, so in buying a bra, it would make sense that you do not base your decision on cup sizes. Try to find out the numerical equivalent of a cup size, instead.
Get your measurement.
It would greatly help if you know your own measurements, including the cup size and the band. You can do this about once each year, using a tape measure.
Stick to your size.
Stick to your measurement even though a new bra might feel tight at first. After getting stretched for a few hours, it should fit perfectly. A bigger-sized bra would feel loose once it has stretched while in use.
