Bra sizes and blouse sizes are not the same. While your blouse size is determined by measuring your chest, shoulder, and sleeve length, your bra size is determined by measuring your band and bust size. The band size is the measurement around your ribcage just under your bust, and the bust size is the measurement around the fullest part of your bust. It’s important to know that these two measurements are crucial in finding the perfect fit for a bra.

Many people think that their blouse size can translate directly to their bra size, but this is not accurate at all. Your bra size has a different calculation method compared to other clothing sizes because it needs to provide both support and comfort for a very specific area of your body – an area that moves constantly throughout the day. It’s also a common misconception that once you find your correct bra size, it will always be the same across different brands or styles of bras. However, due to variations in design and materials used by different manufacturers, it’s important to try on bras from various brands before making a purchase.

A less-known fact about finding the right bra size is that many people may experience changes in their breast tissue over time due to factors such as weight fluctuations, hormonal changes during menstruation or pregnancy, or even aging. Knowing this can help you understand why it’s essential to regularly check if your current bras still fit you properly and reassessing whether you need new ones based on any observed changes in shape or volume.

The next step for you would be to get professionally measured so we can accurately determine what type of bra would best suit you. Don’t hesitate – let us take care of all those confusing calculations while keeping it fun!
