Tips on how to take the perfect measurements
- Wear a T-shirt bra without padding.
- Adjust the straps so that the tip of your breast – as seen from the side – is in the middle of the cup.
- Have a friend help you with the measurements.
Step 1: Take your underbust measurement
1. Place the measuring tape flat against your skin – directly under your breasts. Make sure that the tape runs horizontally around your torso and is at the same height under your breast as on your back. Allow your arms to hang down naturally and breathe as usual.
2. Tighten the measuring tape a little and round the measurement up or down to the next full number. (Example: Round up to 73 cm if you have measured 72.8 cm or round down to 72 cm if the measurement shows 72.2 cm)
3. Move the slider to that position.
1. is the underbust band neither too tight nor too wide?
A sign of this would be the well-known "rolls at the back" or if the underbust band slips up centrally at the back.
2. does the bust fill the cup perfectly - does it not protrude or swell?
The bust swells over the cup and there is an unsightly dent on the cup rim or the cup stands out and looks empty
3. do the bra straps not cut in or slip off the shoulder?
You can recognize this problem by a dent under the strap at the shoulder or the strap constantly slips off the shoulder during movements
4. Does the bra fit comfortably under the armpits?
The bra should not protrude or cut under the arms so that the skin over it swells and dents are created
5. does the bra fit well under the bust and does not slide up?
The bra should lie straight under the breast with every movement so that the underwire does not press on the breast tissue
6. does the bra underwire frame the breast laterally and does not press?
The underwire should follow the shape of the breast, form a curve at the side and gently hug.
f the bra feels itchy or scratchy
The elastic tapes chafe, the bra fastener creates friction, the lace irritates the skin...
When it comes to underwear, high-quality, comfortable materials and a good overall finish are particularly important. We want your lingerie to feel like a second skin, and that is why we select our fabrics and other components with utmost care. Find out here about the materials and suppliers ANITA uses.
Always try a twin size or cross-over size bra if there are minor fit issues. An example of sister sizes would be 75B and 70C.
Choose one cup size larger if you have the feeling that the cup is just a little too small and at the same time choose the underbust band one size smaller.
It's all about the fit. What you should look out for when buying and wearing a new bra and how to solve fit issues quickly and easily.
