How To Choose The Right Bra
Getting your first bra during puberty is a rite of passage for many women. We wear bras for most of our lives, so it's important to wear one that's comfortable and flattering. Your breasts deserve the best, so here's how you can choose the right bra:
First off, examine your lifestyle to determine the type of bra that you need. Are you very active throughout the day, or are you relatively stationary? Do you dress formally or casually? This can help you decide whether you need a bra that provides comfort, support, reduces bounce, or gives you an extra lift.
Next, use a soft measuring tape to measure the area under your breasts to find your band size. Then, measure your bust size by wrapping the tape around your back and to your nipples. If one of your breasts is larger than the other, use the measurement from the largest breast.
Now comes the hardest part-- finding a bra that fits. Bra sizes vary depending on brand and size. You might be a 34B in one brand, but a 32B in another. Also pay attention to how the straps and band feel. Both should fit snugly and not too tight or loose.
