How to Measure Your Breast?Having better-shaped breasts and larger cup size is what the greater part of women would like and dream of, even if a lot of them show no interest toward breast enlargement procedures – and that maybe because they think breast surgery is the only solution and are unaware of the efficient alternatives to it.
The other side of the issue is that most women even don't know their bra size and don't know how to measure their breasts. And are there many of them who have actually been measured?
The first step you should take prior to initiating any breast enlargement process is to measure carefully and record the size of your breast. But how to take these measurements properly? The following methods will help you make medically-accurate measurement and finally find out your breast size.
How to Measure Your Breast?How to measure breast? Stand up keeping your shoulders and back in a comfortably straight and relaxed position, without pushing your chest out or holding your breath. You may find it difficult to do all the measurements on your own, hence, ask a friend to help you so that you could maintain the right position with your arms down by your sides.
Measuring Band Size
Your first step is to measure band size.
Measure very tightly – with a soft tape measure – around your rib cage, just below your breasts, to obtain your band size. Pull the tape measure tightly and make sure it goes straight all the way round you.
Round all fractional measurements to the nearest whole number.
Measuring Bust Size
Then, measure your bust size:
Measure around the fullest part of your bust, over the nipples loosely and keeping the tape measure straight.
Again, round all fractional measurements to the nearest whole number.
Calculation of Bra Size
Finally, calculate your breast cup size:
From your bust measurement (step 2) subtract your band measurement (step 1). Basically, every inch of difference results in your cup going up by one size.
Use the table below to find your breast size.
