Or perhaps you’re more accustomed to the other side of the problem. A bra so tight you’re left with a bumpy silhouette from your bra band cutting you in two and angry red lines across your torso when you finally peel the torture contraption off at the end of the day.
We all know that an ill-fitting bra can put a damper on your mood. Yet so many of us still put up with it on a daily basis, as figures show that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra!
At Conturve, we know the importance of a well-fitting bra. A bra that fits you properly should be comfortable and supportive whilst giving you the confidence to do your thing. That’s why we’ve put together a handy little guide to help you find your ideal bra size match.
Let’s get started!
Bra Size Guide
First things first, you’re going to want to grab a few things:
- A pen or pencil
- A piece of paper
- A measuring tape
If you don’t have a tape measure, don’t worry. You can always use a piece of string or a scarf and then use a ruler to figure out your measurements afterwards.
From here, you want to take two measurements to find your band size and your bust size. Simply measure right under your ribcage to find out what band size you are, and measure around the fullest part of your boobs to find your bust size.
It’s important that, whilst measuring yourself, your tape measure is pulled tight but not tight enough to be uncomfortable.
If you’re already lost, it’s okay. We included a handy bra measurement guide below!
Now that you have your bra measurements, you can find your perfect size match. Just use the charts below to get your ideal fit!
Of course, if you still have any doubts or questions, it might be worth finding your local underwear shop to have a bra fitting performed by a professional!
What bras do we recommend?
Now you know your exact bra measurements, it’s time to find yourself the right bra. And, when it comes to comfortable bras that offer total support and day-long wearability, we know our stuff!
Our bras have been carefully designed to help women feel and look fabulous whether they’re on the go or lounging at home.
Here are our top recommendations for you:
- 24/7 Comfort Non-Wired Shaper Bra - Designed to conform to and smooth out your natural shape, this non-wired shaper bra is a true wardrobe essential. Lifting and firming whilst still incredibly comfortable, you won’t have to worry about painful straps or unsightly back spillage ever again! Plus, it comes with hook and eye fastening for easy, accessible wear.
- Daily Comfort Throw-On Wirefree Bra - This super flattering non-wired shaping bra offers natural support and lift whilst being one of the comfiest bras we’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing!

If you’re new to the concept of a non-wired bra, trust us when we say they are a total game-changer. They’re comfier and longer-lasting than underwired bras, and they are incredibly gentle to sensitive or tender breasts. There is a reason why here at Conturve, we’ve opted to totally ditch the wired bra!
