Believe it or not, at least 80% of women wear an incorrectly sized bra! Most women wear a bra too large in the back and too small in the cups. Although sizing can vary slightly between brands, all follow a basic measurement system that you can use to measure your bra size in the comfort of your own home. Are all women the same? No ! Every figure is unique and different. Different measurements, different shapes and also different body tissue, which varies in form, firmness and composition. This is why we recommend consulting a good innerwear specialist when looking for the right bra for you. We have heard many tales of women spending years searching for the right bra and then finding what they were looking for the first time they walked into a proper, specialist innerwear store. At Bodybasics, we have specialists who are trained to guide you to pick the right fitted bra. 

Wearing the wrong bra size can ruin an otherwise flawless outfit. Women who wear the wrong size bra often have problems maintaining correct posture. This can lead to slouching rather than sitting and standing upright, as well as unexplained back and neck pain. The best solution to wearing the wrong bra size is to visit a store and get yourself measured, not once every few years, but every single time you go shopping for a new bra. The reason for this is that a woman’s bust size will change throughout her life due to hormonal reasons, pregnancy, weight loss and other factors. Wearing the wrong bra size can cause health problems, but allowing yourself to be measured each time you go bra shopping will ensure that you buy the correct bra size. This will eliminate the health problems that can occur while wearing the wrong bra size.

Some common symptoms of a wrong fitted bra are :
• Straps that dig into your shoulders ( = usually cup is too small)
• Underwire that stabs you ( = cup is too small)
• The dreaded quadraboob or other types of spillage ( = cup is too small)
• Cups that bunch up ( = cup is too big)
• Back bulge ( = band is too small)
• A band that rides up your back ( = band is too big)

So go ahead and buy a bra that fits correctly, improves your posture and also makes you feel good and confident. Refer the chart below to measure your bra size in the comfort of your own home. Shop online for the best collection of  bra at
