Based on your measurements, it seems like the bra you are currently wearing may be too big for you. The band should fit snugly around your ribcage without causing any discomfort or leaving marks. The cups should fully contain and support your breast tissue without any spillage or gaping. It’s crucial to consider the overall fit of the bra rather than just focusing on one aspect, as both the band and cup size play a vital role in providing adequate support and comfort.

To ensure that your bra fits properly, I would recommend getting professionally fitted at our store by one of our experienced staff members who specialize in lingerie fitting. This will provide you with accurate measurements and recommendations for different styles that suit your body shape and preferences. It’s essential to try on various sizes and brands to find the best fit for you, as sizing can vary across different manufacturers.

A common misconception is that a larger bra size will always provide more comfort and support, but this is not necessarily true. In many cases, a smaller cup size with a larger band may actually offer better support and contouring for your breasts. It’s important to focus on finding a well-fitted bra rather than simply going up in size if there are issues with comfort or support.

One lesser-known fact is that certain fabrics and construction techniques can affect how a bra fits over time. For example, bras made from stretchy materials may require frequent adjustments due to loss of elasticity over time. Understanding these details can help in making informed decisions when selecting bras that maintain their shape and fit longer.

The next step in understanding if your bra is too big or too small would be to take advantage of our professional fitting services or utilize our online resources for self-measuring guides before making any new purchases. Remember – when it comes to bras, knowledge truly is power!
