3 Steps To The Perfect Fitting Bra

By April 09, 2018

Buying a new bra is sometimes really challenging, Getting the right cup, the right fit, padded, unpadded, there's soo many options, so I have put together this 3 step guide to help you find the perfect bra.

3 steps to the perfect fitting bra

1) Measure Your Band Size: While braless or wearing a non-padded bra or bralette, measure (in inches) under your bust with a tape measure, the tape measure should be snug but not overly tight, round to the nearest whole number, if it's even, add 4inches, if it's odd, add 5inches, Your band size will be the total calculation

2)Measure Your Bust: Time to get the tape measure out again and measure around the fullest part of your chest and round it again up to the nearest inch.

3)Work out your cup size: Subtract your band size from your bust measurement and use this simple chart to work out your cup!


Its really as simple as that and here's a quick example: 37 inches (bust) – 34 inches (band) = 3 inches. That’s a 34C! Next its time to find the perfect bra!

Tip!: The fit on a bra is very important, if you get an underwire bra make sure that the bones fit flush to the centre of your chest bone, this will make sure you get a good fit, nobody wants bra bones protruding out of the front of their top!

Head on over to Hunkemoller and take a look at their fabulous range of bras including strapless and stick on!!
This brand is brilliant, the quality and sizes of these bras are wonderful and they're great prices too! Don't Believe me? Well here's my review:

Hunkemoller Bra Review: 

When my bra came I was so excited, I had spent so long choosing the perfect one and I found it! Its white and netty and lovely quality material, I ordered a 40DD (I'm a big mumma) and the cup fits perfect, the bones are flush to my chest and the back is snug but not uncomfortable its just how I like it and I'm sure over time it would get a little looser.

My bra It's a brilliant white colour and has a double clasp on the back ( i prefer 3 for more support but I'm just picky), it has a lovely little button bow in the middle too! The straps are lovely, they're not too thick and have a lovely bow accent on them too.

The service and choice of this site is great and the prices are great, as you can see from the images the packaging is really cute too :D I would definitely order from this site again maybe around August for my wedding undies ;)

I really hope that you get a perfect measurement for your bra and find a perfect bra that fits too! 

Much Love
