Do you know your bra size? Not the size that you wear but your REAL bra size. As women change, so does their bra size and now we can all learn what size we really are with the Bra Fit Calculator, an online tool developed by Figleaves.com that lets you calculate your proper bra size and fit from the privacy of your own home.
How it works is easy. Simply enter in your current bra size and answer illustrated questions about the position and tightness of your bras band, the positioning of the bras underwires, and the fit of the bras cups.
Figleaves.coms Bra Fit Calculator will then provide an updated size recommendation based on your answers. In addition, Figleaves.coms newly launched online Fitting Room features videos on how to properly put on a bra, a look into the history of bra fitting, a guide to the various components of a bra, and instructions on how to wash and care for bras.
During extensive bra fit research, Figleaves.com learned that the most common problems were women wearing too large of a band and too small of a cup size, thus not supporting and lifting the bust properly. On average, women using the new Bra Fit Calculator are being resized down one band size and up three cup sizes. Figleaves.com reports their bestselling bra sizes to be a 32F and a 34E.
The reason for the launch of the new Fitting Room is simple: the traditional tape measure bra sizing system was developed more than 70 years ago. Since then, body shapes and sizes as well as technology in lingerie have changed a great deal. The traditional system was only designed for cup sizes A-D, whereas bras are now available up to a K cup and beyond. Whats more, the tape measure system ignores the shape of the ribcage and the proportions of the shoulders to the waist.
Learn your size - you will be sure to look and feel better!
