Sports Bra Size Chart | Zivame


Exercise and sports activities require the right sports equipment, which starts with the right indoor clothing. A sports bra is a must have for any woman who exercises and sports. A well-fitting bra not only ensures comfort, but also solid support and impact. There are different types of sports bras, and below is an overview of the types of bras and how to find your best fit.

Any sports activity for women must be done with a sports bra for optimal support. But different activities require different levels of support. There are three basic types of bras listed below.

Bra support levels in terms of activity

Low support: Low-impact activities like yoga, weight training, or walking require low-support sports bras. These are generally best for A / B cup sizes. These bras are lightweight and have narrow straps or bands. They mainly come in a sweater style and are sold in sizes S (small) to L (large) without adjustable bands. These often come in the style of compression bras which hold the breasts firmly against the chest and allow minimal movement and bounce.

Medium support: Medium support bras are sufficient for medium impact activities like biking, skiing, and moderate hiking. These restrict chest movement a bit more than low-support bras. They have wider straps and bands and are available in sizes and pullover styles S to L or with hook closures with band and cup size.

High support: High impact activities like jumping, running or mountain biking require high support sports bras. It is also ideal for large cup sizes like D and up. These bras have wide bands and adjustable straps for a snug and comfortable fit. They are available in compression and encapsulation styles with separate cups and hook-and-eye closures for maximum support.

Change your sports bras to suit your activities. This will optimize the support required and also extend the life of your bras.

Measurement for the size of the sports bra

A bra size is likely to change often due to weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and aging. So, every time you buy a sports bra, measure your waist for the perfect fit. Here are some guidelines that will teach you how to measure your sports bra size.

Conditions:

  • A flexible band
  • An unpadded bra or no bra, preferably
  1. Measuring the rib cage

Hold the tape around the rib cage below the bust. Round off the measurement to the nearest inch. This rib cage measurement will also help you determine the cup and band size.

  1. Determine the size of the band

The band usually falls above the bust to the back strap of the bra. But it is difficult to get an accurate measurement of this with duct tape. Therefore, you can measure your rib cage and follow the table below.

3. Measure your cup size

There are two steps to this process:

  1. Measure across the middle or fullest part of your bust, around the back. Make sure the tape is straight across the back. Round off the measurement to the nearest inch. It is the measurement of your bust.
  2. You have the measurement of your rib cage from before. Subtract your rib cage measurement (1) from your bust measurement (a). The difference in inches is the likely size of your cup. Round the number to the nearest inch.

A bra cup size in a table shows AA, A, B, C, D, E, and F.
