Bra fitting guide
Finding the right size bra is often a trouble for many women; estimates are that about 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. This is not healthy for your breasts – especially if the breasts are in a too tight bra.
Let your breasts have free time from bras daily – it’s best to spend more than 12 hours of your day bra-free. This will help the lymph flow inside your breasts. And when choosing a bra, try to get yourself fitted by a professional.

Finding the band size
There is NO consensus in these measurement methods (unfortunately). Different opinions exist. So no matter what measuring system you use, you still need to try the garment on to be sure it actually fits. It’s worth noting though that a too large band size is one of the most common ERRORS women make in bra fitting.
Have someone measure around your chest with a tape measure, just under your breasts, and around the back. Make sure the tape measure rests flat on the skin and goes straight across your back.
