To measure for a sports bra in the UK, you will need to start by taking two specific measurements. First, wrap a measuring tape around your ribcage, just underneath your bust. This will give you your band size. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight. Next, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Take note of this measurement as well.

Once you have these measurements, you can use them to determine your sports bra size using the UK sizing system. Band sizes typically range from 28 to 40, while cup sizes are designated with letters A through H. For example, if your ribcage measures 30 inches and your bust measures 36 inches, then according to the UK sizing system, you would likely wear a 30E sports bra.

A common misconception when it comes to sports bra fitting is that one size fits all or that any size will work for any activity. However, it’s important to get properly measured and find a sports bra that offers the right support and comfort for your specific needs and activities.

An interesting fact about measuring for a sports bra is that there are different styles designed specifically for different levels of impact during physical activity – low-impact, medium-impact, and high-impact. Knowing which level of impact corresponds to your chosen activities can help you select the most appropriate sports bra for optimal support and comfort.
