On top of knowing which sports bra to choose for your workout, what's more important is to choosing the correct size.
Knowing your bra size is extremely important for your breast health. If you have not taken your measurements in the past six months, there is a chance that number/letter in your head might not be accurate anymore!
In this article, we will go through the steps on how to measure your bra size correctly. This does not just apply to your sports bras, but your bras in general. All you need is a measuring tape.

Step 1: Measure the fullest part across your bust using a measuring tape (as indicated by (1) in the picture above).
Step 2: Measure your under-bust band size (as indicated by (2) in the picture above). Ideally, you need to be completely topless to ensure a more accurate measurement. As a rule of thumb, you should still be able to fit a finger under the measuring tape. Round the measurement to the nearest whole number to get your band size.
Step 3: Find the difference between (1) and (2). This will determine your cup size.
Step 4: Find the corresponding cup size to your fullest bust, below:
