How to Measure Correct Bra Size
(a 2nd simple bra test)
I've been showing women how to find the right bra size since 1971, and in all that time, I've found that the number one thing that women don't understand about bras is how they were designed to work. The modern bra was designed to hold a woman's breasts at the level where they grew out of her body. A bra that does that is the right bra size for you. What exactly is the right level for you?
Stand in front of a mirror, without your bra and without anything covering you on top, turn to the side, and look in the mirror. Do you see the bottom line of your breasts where they come out of your body? If you're like most women, your breasts themselves are hanging, sagging below that line. Maybe just a little, but maybe a lot.
Most women are wearing a bra that holds their breasts at the level you see them hanging or sagging in the mirror. THIS IS A MISTAKE.
A bra worn like this is not doing what it was designed to do. If your bra lets your breasts sag below where they grew out of your body, you are not wearing the correct bra size.
Now, lift up your boobs while you're standing sideways in the mirror. You see the bottom part, the part where your boob becomes a part of your body at its lowest point? The spot where you would put a tape measure to take your "under the bust" measurement?
That's the level your bra should hold your breasts at, because that's the level your breasts grew out of your body. The modern bra was designed to hold your breasts at that spot, because that is where your breasts belong, and your bra was designed to hold your breasts where they belong.
You may think that I'm needlessly repeating myself, but this is the one mistake that everyone is making. Don't be like everyone else. Be the 1 out of 10 women who knows the proper way to measure bra size.
Now here's something interesting. Get a tape measure and take your "under the bust" measurement, just under your breasts where they grew out of your body. Now move the tape measure a few inches downward and take another measurement. Then move the tape measure downward one more time, and take another measurement. When most women do this, they find that they get a bigger number the lower they measure on their body.
This is why wearing the right bra size can make you look like you just lost 10 pounds, even more. Because the spot where your breasts grew out of your body is the thinnest part of your body, too.
But when you don't know your correct bra size, and your bra lets your breasts sag below your thinnest part, people can't see that part anymore because your breasts are covering it up and making you look heavier than you really are. If you're a petite woman, you look about 10 pounds overweight. If you're a larger size, you can look 15 to 20 pounds heavier than you really are.
So now look in the mirror one more time, while you're standing sideways, still without a bra. Make a mental note of where your breasts are sagging to, or even take your tape measure and let one end touch the floor and the other end measures where your breasts are sagging to.
Now put on your bra and turn sideways to the mirror again, and compare that picture to what you saw earlier, or take a new measurement from the floor to your breasts. If your bra is not holding your breasts higher than they were when you had on no bra at all, you need a new bra fitting.
And remember, any sales clerk who doesn't give you a bra that holds your breasts at the spot they grew out of your body is a sales clerk who might know how to use a tape measure, but doesn't understand what bra size your measurements call for.
