Selecting a proper bra is a matter of health, comfort and appearance. Nevertheless, most women tend to diminish the role a bra plays in their lives choosing beauty over health. You always must think buying a well-fitting bra that offers a good support and doesn't displace the breasts tissue.


Statistics say that almost 80% of women don't know how to choose the right bra for their size. Therefore, in the future, they will have to face back problems and drooping breasts. The bra is the key element that needs special attention when choosing it. Women must be conscious that a bra must cover entirely the mammary tissue.

Even if there are so many options, not all women manage to find the right, comfortable bra. Sometimes they pick out the same wrong size. Whenever choosing a bra, in order to know if it is the perfect one, you must take into consideration a few elements such as:

Cup size

If the size of the cups are too big and they don't cover the breasts, then an empty space will be created between the skin and the fabric. If the sizes are too small the bra will only cause injuries to the ligaments.

Straps

The straps of a bra can be easy adjusted, but you need to pay attention to the way they fit to the body. If the strap raises then it's too big, but if it leaves marks on the skin, it's too small and it cuts into shoulders. Straps must be adjustable and have good elasticity.

Fabrics

The perfect fabric for an every day bra is cotton as it allows the skin to breath and it doesn't provoke allergy and irritations. Try to avoid an underwired bra as they are pretty noxious due to their forced support of the breasts.

The right size

In order to choose the proper bra, you should know which is the right size for you. You can find the right size by measuring around the body under the bust, then around the fullest part of your breasts and the difference between the two represents the cup size. Therefore, if the result is under 2.5 cm, then you are cup A, 2.5-5 cm means cup B, bigger than – cup C, over 7.5 is cup D. If you don't find yourself in none of these measurements, you shouldn't worry as there are special bras that come to your aid.
