New You Beauty Tip: Measure your bust for just the right fit.

Statistics shows that 75 – 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. Although outer clothing plays an important role in the way we look, our under garments play an equally important role in the way our clothes fit. Measuring your true bra size is easy and can be done at home by following these simple steps.

1. Take you band measurement by going braless. Wrap the measuring tape from back to the front, keeping it under the arms and bringing it up across the middle of your chest (above the breast). Make sure the tape is snug. Round odd numbers to the next even number.
2. Take your bust measurement by wrapping around loosely at the fullest part of your chest.
3. Subtract your band size from your bust measurement and refer to chart.
