How to measure your bra size
You’ll need a flexible tape measure. It’s also best to wear a bra that doesn’t change your shape — no padding or compression. You can also just skip the bra.
Measure around your rib cage where the bottom band would sit. The tape measure should feel quite snug. If you get a fraction, round down to the nearest inch. Using , find your corresponding band size based on your measurement.
Measure around the fullest part of your boobs — which may not be the center — and round up to the nearest inch. Then subtract your rib cage measurement. The difference in inches is your suggested cup size. If you get a fraction, round up to the larger size.
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
How we solved six common bra issues.
Skip the on/off struggle
Changing into your run bra should be easy. If pullover bras don’t work for you, try styles with adjustable back closures, or even zip-front designs.
Stop straps from chafing
Chafing is the worst. Try adjustable straps to fine-tune the fit, or free-cut finishing which practically eliminates edges on straps.
No more nipping out
Stay confident in your coverage with styles that feature built-in molded cups or removable cups.
Smooth out pesky seams
Bras with nearly seamless finishing or bonded finishing — a fancy way of saying seams are adhered with heat instead of stitched — help eliminate seam-on-skin irritation.
