How do I find the perfect bra fit?
Many woman ask "how do I measure my bra size?" We can find ourselves a bit lost on lingerie websites looking for bra guidelines, don't panic! I aim to give you more confidence with that journey.
Know your boobs
Firstly, our breasts / boobs have no muscles, only fatty tissue and ligaments. It's understandable how varying life cycles and changing health impacts our bust size. If you've been measured before, don't be surprised if your bra size has changed.
We ask that you check your fruit bowl 😂
To ease this task; in the quest for the perfect bra fit, I would like to use analogies 😉. We are all familiar with magazines and dressing guides where we see a comparison to a woman’s shape like 'Apple', 'Round Apple' & 'Pear' shaped etc., So say we refer to Fruits to helps us establish an idea of our Cup size!
It's only a reference, but goes a long way to giving us an idea of our Cup size when looking to purchase Bra's.
A ‘C Cup’ is similar in size to a peach, A ‘ D Cup’ is similar in size to an apple, A ‘F Cup’ is similar in size to a grapefruit, A ‘G Cup’ is similar in size to a melon, A ‘H Cup’ is similar to a watermelon.
A ‘DD Cup and E Cup’ will sit just over the size of an apple, A ‘FF cup’ will sit just above the size of a grapefruit.
This is the tricky part... but we've got a hack 👍
