How to Make Sure You're Wearing the Right Size Bra

You need to try this trick!

Buying the right bra size is easier said than done. Often the band around your back is tight while the cups are looser, or the size you always thought you were doesn't fit you at all. But according to French lingerie brand Chantelle, there's one little trick you can use to ensure the bra you're trying on fits you properly.

'When you first buy a bra, it should be tight enough that when you wear it on the first hook, two fingers should just fit between your back and the band,' Nicole Kivitiz, who works for Chantelle, told Insider. 'As you continue to wear the bra and it stretches, you should switch to using the second and then eventually the third hook. If you're on the third hook and can fit more than two fingers between your back and the band, it's time to replace that bra.'

Yep, and contrary to popular belief, women should be more concerned about the fitting of the band than the cup, as according to Kivitiz '80% of your support is from your band.' However don't use this as your go-to option EVERY time. Women should ideally be getting a professional fitting at least once a year; particularly as breast size can change regularly due to factors including hormone changes and changes in weight.At least you know that next time you're in the lingerie department looking for a new bra, this is a pretty good start to determine if your bra is really fitting you properly.
