Do you think your a 34B and 36C? Tons of women 'Think' that this is their size - even when it isnt! Its easy to get hung up on numbers and letters and we end up getting the wrong size!
If you wear one of these sizes and are suddenly questioning everything you thought you knew about your breasts, don’t panic. Find a mirror, ditch your T-shirt, and look out for these signs that you’re wearing the wrong size.
You Can Slide Your Band Up and Down
If you have your band on the tightest hook and it can still move around, your bra is too big The band, not the straps, support your breasts. This is especially important if you’re a C cup or above and depend on your bra to avoid back pain and keep the girls up where you want them. A proper band fit is also extremely important when you’re wearing a convertible or strapless bra because you don’t have straps to help compensate for a too-big band.
You may also find that your straps dig into your shoulders or constantly need to be tightened.
So say you wear a 36C and your shoulders ache by the end of the day. Try going down to a 34 band and up to a D cup. A lot of women have what I call ‘the fear of D’ because they think it means they’re big or overweight, but that’s not true.
Still not sure if your band is the right size? Check out the back of your bra in the mirror. Is the band straight across your back, parallel to the floor? If yes, then it’s probably a good fit. If your band is riding up or pulling, you need a smaller size.
You've Got Boob Bulge Look at the front of your bra. If you’ve got boob overflow (a.k.a. “double boob”) either in the front or on the sides, you don't have enough room in the cup. Cleavage is great, but bulge that can show through your clothes, not so much.
Also, if the center area between the two cups is floating away or not touching your skin instead of laying flat against you, it’s time to move up a cup size.
All of Your Bras Are the Exact Same Size Not all bras are created equal. Just because you’re a 34B in a demi bra doesn’t mean you’re a 34B in a full-coverage bra. All brands are different and so you need to try them all on.
Demi bras are low-cut—sometimes called “half cups”—and they have significantly less material than a full-coverage bra in the same size. So you may wear a 34B in a demi bra but a 34A in a full-coverage.
Still Not Sure? When in doubt, head to a specialty store for a bra fitting.It doesnt take long and as long as you wear a light T.shirt so that the fitter can get an accurate measuremtn - then your on the way to getting some great support.
Think of it this way - you wouldnt buy a size 8 shoe when you wear a size 9 would you? Your bust needs to be looked after and to be treated as well as your feet ...if not better!
