Approximately 80% of all women wear the wrong bra size. We’ll tell you how to find your perfect bra and the 20% that make it right.
Eight out of ten women wear the wrong bra-such a “success rate” sounds like an almost insoluble task. And even greater is the challenge even in women who wear great sizes. Some look for an extra-large basket size, while other women need smaller cups, but a larger breed width. In addition, the smallest weight fluctuations can influence the size and the comfortable seat.
But: the search is worth it! Finding the right cup size can change your life.Your silhouette looks more fashionable, your attitude more self-assured and thus your stature larger. A well-shaped, well-supported upper part also makes the waist look more defined.
So we’ve been looking for the perfect fit bra and talked to the most sought-after lingerie experts who have years of experience in the plus size segment and shared their valuable tips with us.
Together, we’ve created a checklist that will tell you whether you’re trying the right bra. And this is how it works:
From The Front:
- The stirrups should lie flat on the chest, especially on the bridge, the stirrups end a few centimeters below the armpit.
- Your breasts should fit completely into the braces of the bra and do not bulge either under or on the sides.
- The cups should be flat, not protruding or incised.
- The closure should be close-fitting and comfortable.The most relaxed hook should be taut, but leave no imprint.Then he sits too tight.
- You should use two fingers to grip and pull under the fastener, not pulling the restraint more than four inches from the back center.
- The restraint should be level and run along the breastbone without sliding up.
- The bra straps should not cut at the shoulders and parallel as well as 90 degrees to the back part or run as a V.
- If these points apply to your bra, then we congratulate you on a well-fitting copy.But even then: check the points again every six months.
- If one or more of these points does not apply to your bra, please read on.

How To Get A Perfectly Fitting Bra:
It is a common misunderstanding that the bra straps provide for the hold. The restraint is, in fact, the interstitial band: its seat is decisive and 80% responsible for the supporting effect of the chest. It should be taut, but comfortable to sit and horizontally around the body without sliding up.
If the lower band is too big, it sits loosely at the back and slides up. And maybe you even set the bearers too short to compensate for this? Try to find a smaller size and bigger cups: B. wear a 40 D, take a 38 DD. If the crossover is very loose, you can even try a 36 E.
If you are concerned that a smaller bra size is cut sideways, pull the lower back strap only a little lower and it will sit on a narrower part of the upper body, minimizing bulges. Also, look for bras with wide sides from specialized brands such as Elomi, Goddess and Glamorise.
To ensure that your lingerie complements your outfit perfectly, always try your favorite top over your new bra.

The bra straps should provide only 20% of the support work. If the bra straps are cut at the shoulders, then the restraint is too large and the wearer must take over most of the support work. Try a smaller breed size, but larger cups. For example, instead of a 40 D a 38 DD. If the breastplate fits very loosely, even choose a 36 E.
The stirrups should lie flat on the bridge (between the breasts) on the chest. If the breastplate protrudes from the bridge, your cups are too small and the breasts press the bridge away from the chest. Try in the case with larger cups, Instead of a 40 D a 40 DD.
If the cups are too small, the breasts bulge up or sideways from the bra – the famous “double breast syndrome”. Try in this case with a larger basket, B. instead of 44 E with 44 F.
If the cups throw and fold, they are too big. Then you should try a smaller basket, B. instead of 44 44 DD.
Most women have different sized breasts. Adjust your bra of the larger breast and adjust the wearer of the smaller breast.
Many women do not know that the cup sizes are dependent on the breast size. A B is not equal to a B and a D is not equal to a D. Thus, it is possible that the wearer of a bra in 85B would actually have to wear a 75D. The basket of these two sizes is essentially the same – only the breed size is different. We speak here of diagonal magnitudes.

Can I Use The Measuring Tape And The Size Chart?
When the BH size system was introduced by Warners in 1930, the average body shape was yet another. It is difficult to take into account all body shapes today, especially since many lingerie boutiques do not use tape measure, but go by experience and eye. For this, please refer to the above points and tips.
However, if you prefer a BH size system, proceed as follows:
- Pull on your most comfortable favorite bra – preferably a non-padded one that does not pinch your chest and without a push-up effect – and stand in front of a mirror.
- Use a flexible tape measure and place it under your chest loosely around your chest.If you are serious about measuring, ask a good friend to help you.
- The measuring tape should lie flat and run at the same level.
- Round the measured value to the nearest full number (in cm).This is your underbrush size.
- Then place the measuring tape around your breast (over the nipples) at the widest point and round the measurement up or down to the nearest full number (in cm).
On the basis of the measured dimensions, you can now find your corresponding bra size in this table:
The Top Tips For Known Passport Problems
- Pull a T-shirt over the bra and see if the chest is bulging out of the bra at any point.A well-fitting bra should flatter your body shape.
- If there is a gap at the point where the cups and straps meet, a Balconette style bra would suit you.Because it ends deeper under the chest and thus adapts better to your chest shape, especially with a larger breasts.
- A strap bra with seams is best suited for a large chest, as well as firm fabric without stretch.Embroidered tulle is a good alternative to top details because it gives more support.
- The bigger the cup-letter, the bigger the cup?This is not necessarily so.The under-chest measurement is always in proportion to the cup size, which means that a 75 C is the same as an 80 B. A common mistake is to choose the breasts circumference too large and the cup too small.
- Models with extra supporting sides are very important for a bigger breasts.They help to lessen bulges and flatter the figure.
- Look for models with a wider crosspiece so the bra does not cut at the sides and back.
- Finally, please note that manufacturers do not have the same sizes, so your bra size can vary from label to label.The brand comparison table in BRACLASSIFIED will help you find your bra size with the different labels.
