1- Measure the band size.
2- Measure your cup size.
But this is just the first step in finding your correct bra size. Try different sizes, styles, and brands to find the best fit. Remember that different brands may fit differently despite being the same size.
Who invented the bra?
The modern bra, as we know it today, was invented by Mary Phelps Jacob, a fashion designer from New York, in 1913. She was frustrated with the corsets of the time, which were uncomfortable and restrictive. While getting ready for a party, Mary found that her corset was ruining the silhouette of her dress. So, she came up with the idea of the bra. Then Mary fashioned a makeshift bra using two silk handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon to create a more comfortable and flattering alternative. She patented her design in 1914 and called it the "Backless Brassiere." Other women quickly adopted her invention, and eventually, she sold it to the Warner Brothers Corset Company. This invention began a new era in women's undergarments, and the bra has since become a basic feminine garment.
Why do women wear bras?
There're many reasons. They include comfort, support, and aesthetic appeal for their bust. Bras help to lift and shape the breasts, reducing discomfort and preventing sagging. They can also provide additional support during exercise and other physical activities. Additionally, many women wear bras as a fashion statement or to enhance their confidence and self-esteem. Moreover, some women choose to wear bras for personal and cultural reasons. Some may feel more comfortable and confident with a bra's support and shaping. Others may think it's necessary for their outfits in certain social or professional situations. Bras can also play a role in fashion and self-expression. Different styles and designs allow women to create a desired look or feel. However, no general rule requires women to wear bras; some may choose not to wear them for personal or medical reasons.
