How to find the bra size for a girl?

How to find the bra size for a girl?

1. Just run a tape under the breasts, all the way around your back and rib cage. The tape should rest flat on your skin and lie straight across your back — not so tight, but not so loose. The tap should neither press nor sags down in back.

Note down your measurement and add 5 inches to find your chest size. Say 27” plus 5” is equal to 32”, which is your chest size.

2.To measure cup size, take the tape measure around your body across the fullest part of your breasts.

Write down this number, say it is 33” and subtract your chest size (32”) from it. The difference between the numbers is a way of figuring out your cup size.

For instance, if your cup measurement was 33 and your chest measurement was 32, that’s a 1-inch difference. Your bra size is 32A.

If the difference between the two numbers is less than 1 inch, your cup size is AA. If it is 1 inch, your cup size is A; 2 inches, you’re a B; 3 inches you’re a C, and so on.

Allowance for growth!

If your chest measurement comes out as an odd number (such as 31 inches or 33 inches), it’s usually rounded up to the next number. It is a good to round it up to keep the bra a little loose allowing room for growth.

Hooks and eyes for adjustment!
Most bras have a few sets of adjustable hooks and eyes, so you can adjust to fit well exactly.
