What is a bra size chart?

How to measure the circumference of a bra?

What does it mean when your bra cups don’t lay flat against your skin?
If your bra cups don’t lay flat against your skin or wrinkle, that means the cups are too large and your bust isn’t adequately filling them. On the other hand, if the cups of a bra are digging into your skin, that’s a clear sign that you need to go up a cup size.

Why is it important to know your bra size before buying a new bra?
Since your body changes gradually, you probably won’t even notice if the bra size you’re used to wearing becomes less accurate over time. Wearing an ill-fitting bra still causes you to receive inadequate support and leads to discomfort regardless of whether or not you notice your bra size has changed, which is why it’s so important to confirm your size before you buy a new bra.
How to tell if bra is too tight?
The straps of a bra are a useful indicator of how well the band is supporting your bust. If the straps of a bra slip down over your shoulders or dent your skin, that means that the band of the bra is either too loose or too tight and is forcing the straps to pick up its slack in terms of support. Also, a bra’s band riding up or digging into your skin are also signs that it is too large or too small for you. Your band should stay securely in place and its center—the part in between the cups—should lay flat against your chest at all times. Test the fit of a bra’s band by lifting your arms up over your head when you try it on. If the band rides up at all, it doesn’t fit you correctly.
What does it mean when your bra band is too loose?
The band of your bra is responsible for supplying the majority of the support your bra provides. If it fits too loosely, it won’t be able to offer enough support, which can lead to bouncing, discomfort, and long-term sagging.
How to determine bra size?
When using the chart to find your bra size, keep in mind: 1 The band size increases as you move from left to right. Move left or right within the row if your band doesn’t fit. 2 The cup size increases as you move from top to bottom on the chart. Move up or down the columns if your cups don’t fit. In between cup sizes? Go up or down a half-cup! 3 Bra sizes that share a row are called sister sizes, meaning they share the same cup volume (though they have different cup letters). For example, the row with bra sizes 36C, 38B, and 40A all have the same cup volume, but have different band sizes. The same goes for the row with bra sizes 38H, 40G, 42F, 44E, 46D, and 48C.
