Yeah, we know the drill—the challenges. There doesn’t seem to exist a pair of bra that fits us perfectly. For those who found the one (congratulations to you), they are soon worn out from how we keep wearing them. The thought of going to get them fitted is also a nightmare for some of us.
Fret no more – this TikTok user is out here to teach people how they can find the perfect pair!
@madisonannehThe Brand New 2021 Edition on finding your own size!
If the video was too fast for you, scroll down for the breakdown!
She reminds people that the measurement can change every half a year. So whenever you’re looking for anything with breast measurement, every six month, measure them again!
“Your bra size is composed of two measurements.”
One is the band and the other is the bust. And here’s how you can measure the right size of the band and the bust:
Wrap the measuring band right under them all the way around. Make sure not to wear any, or only sports bra while measuring this! The pads might change your measurement, so be mindful of that.
Now once you get the number, round the values to the closest even number. Madison gave examples: if you got 35, round them up to 36 inches. If you got 34.5, round them down to 34. Another example: if you got 32, stay there! If you got 31, round them up to 32. If you got 30.5, round them to 30.
Next is the bust. Wrap it around the widest point and just like before, round them to the closest even value.
Here comes the math! Take your bust and band measurements, and find the difference (to be more accurate, it’s your bust minus your band value!).
Now take that difference to find your cup size, Madison has also included the chart for US cup sizes:
And that’s how you can find your size! Needless to say, the women who saw this were excited to try the method out on their own!
