Don't feel bad if you now realise that you have been wearing the wrong size of bra
Up to 80% of natural women at any given time are also wearing the wrong size! This can be due to just not buying new bras when weight is gained or lost or simply not being measured properly and therefore not knowing the correct bra size to buy.
A badly fitting bra can be uncomfortable but can also look unsightly, causing lumps and bumps under your clothes that shouldn’t be there! Obviously for a crossdresser the bra’s main function is to help create the illusion of breasts rather than actually hold real ones in place so you need it to lie correctly so that you are comfortable wearing it and you create the right silhouette under your clothes.
How to measure yourself:
- Use a soft material type tape measure
- Stand in front of a mirror so you can see yourself properly
- Place the tape measure around your body, approximately 2 inches below your nipple
- Join the tape so it is snug but not tight and ensure it is flat against your back
- Read the measurement rounding to the nearest whole inch
- To get your band size take your measurement and if it is an even number add 4, if an odd number add 5 to get the band size for your bra
Now you have your band size you will need to decide on how big your ‘breasts’ are going to be and this is the cup size – the letter part of the sizing – which obviously for a natural woman would be what she naturally has but for you it can in theory be whatever you want it to be! To look natural:
- Choose a B or C cup if you have a small frame
- Choose a C or D cup if you have a medium frame
- Choose a D cup or larger if you have a large frame
