Current Bra Analysis
Straps should fit snugly, but not support the weight of the woman’s breast
Cups should be filled completely by the breast. Improperly sized cups will be indicated by spillage (too small) or puckering (too large). Cups should be sized to fit the larger breast
Underwire is designed to sit on the chest cavity and to support the breasts. It should not poke or sit on top of the breast.
The band of the bra needs to be level. If the band is riding up in the back, it is too large and a smaller size should be used. The band should not cause red marks on the skin.
Hook and Eyes are fit differently on sports bras vs. everyday bras. Sports bras should be fit on the middle hook. Everyday bras are fit on the first hook. If you can pull the band a couple of inches away from the body, it is too large. If you can barely get your finger under the band, it is too small.
Rib Cage Size: Facing the customer, slide the tape measure around the customer’s back. The tape should be placed evenly around the torso, just below the band of her current bra. The tape should be snug when the customer is relaxed and breathing normally.
Band Size: If the rib cage measurement is 39 or below, add 5 to the rib cage measurement and round up to the nearest even number. This is her band size
Band Size: If the rib cage measurement is 40 or higher, add 3 and round up to the nearest even number.
Sports bras are deigned to fit more snugly than everyday bras, so this measurement may be smaller than her everyday bra.
Bust Size:Measure loosely around the fullest part of the customer’s bust, keeping the tape measure even.
Cup Size:Subtract the band size from the bust size, the difference is her cup size.
