Bra Fitting.

Okay, we all hear lots of talk about how many women are wearing the wrong size bra. I looked this up and found something called "bra fitting" - and in some countries like USA there are actually shops that help you to find your right bra size. Was wondering if there's some kinda of bra fitting service in SG..~

Re: Bra Fitting.

Last time when I went to buy my bra, the saleslady took the measuring tape to measure the upper & lower bust diameter & then she just chose a size for me.

Re: Bra Fitting.

I also have problem cos for some brands, i'm a B and some, I'm a C. Usually the SA will use tape and measure too.

Re: Bra Fitting.

some salespersons can give a good bra size that will somewhat fit, but they don't see you nude so they can't give u a proper size depending on the shape of your breasts etc. i have a similar problem. :/

Re: Bra Fitting.

Some SA are very experience cos they have been in this line for very long, that's why they can tell.

Re: Bra Fitting.

it is rather confusing at times even though the staff can get u the size that we usually wear but i've encountered problems like underwire poking me, cup too tight etc. Various designs have different cup sizes...

Went to La Senza the other day and i almost fainted after measurements... I went from a C/D cup to a DD/E cup much to my dismay....

Oh and if you aren't sure, most of the sales girls are pretty willing to assist in checking whether you are wearing your bra correctly. But you have to be abit thick-skinned too as you'll be in your bra in the fitting room with a stranger.

Re: Bra Fitting.

For me, i find that la senza's cutting is a bit smaller by about one or two sizes. To play safe, i usually try them on and make sure it really fit before purchasing.

Re: Bra Fitting.

every 6 months, we will grow/ shrink leh.
so, best is to change bra every 6 months... and then take new measurements...
it's super easy to measure your size. or u can ask the SA to do it for you. it's part of the service...

Re: Bra Fitting.

Sometimes is depend on how the sales assistance measure your sizes cause different people have their ways of measuring. Also different brands have different kind of cutting for bra so maybe is good that you know yourself which brand which size is comfortable for you.

Re: Bra Fitting.

actually for me the first time i went to try they will help you measure and give you the size, its part of their service as mentioned above
but like cause every bra has a different cutting or actual size so its always better to try one size up or down as well, just to see which one fit better la

Re: Bra Fitting.

@fathernature huh. that's sad.

@lovewendy sometimes is because of the cutting lah... full or half cup thing... and the cutting, material...

@BunnieCvc haha! you're in singapore, girl! you have to ASK for the service!
see those measuring tapes found in those shop selling bra leaving ard? ask the auntie or salesperson to measure it for you!

in case you guys really not sure,


here's a vid.


*just hack the add 5 inches part lah...

in case you didnt catch the main points....

1. measure around your torso, (below your breast)
2. measure around bustline again. (the biggest part) *take note to measure loose. not too tight!

then,
for each additional inch, add a bra size.


eg,
step 1. measurement around your torso is 32 inches.
then, step 2, measurement around bustline is 34 inches.
so, the difference is 2 inches.

so, 2 inches = 2 cup size = cup B.
hence, the bust size is 32B.


**as 0 inch = AA cup size,
1 inch = 1 cup size, (A)
2 inches difference = 2 cup size (B)
3 inches difference = 3 cup size (C)
and so on....


BUT TAKE NOTE! angmoh size/ angmoh brand right, the size is different!

cos, i have bought made in thailand bras and made in UK bras and yeah, made a mistake here.

cos, angmoh's size is bigger... so, their C is bigger that our usual asian sized C.
hence, IT'S IMPORTANT TO TRY BEFORE buying!


rep me if you find it useful?
