How to Measure Sports Bra Size

Women’s breasts are glandular organs suspended from the pectoralis major muscle, without the support of bones and muscles. Any movement of the chest in sports will cause the chest to shake, making this suspensory ligament stretched back and forth taut, and in the long run, it is easy to cause breast sagging; this process also causes the chest and underwear in intense friction, and friction most directly is the chest will therefore be traumatized. When wearing a sports bra, pressure can be transferred from the sensitive shoulders and chest to the back and armpits to disperse and enhance the prolonged exercise’s comfort. So, choosing the right sports bra is essential for girls and women!

Measure Upper Breast

First, lean your body forward 45 degrees and use a tape measure to measure the fullest part of your chest. Place the tape straight across your back.  Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your upper breast size.

When we buy sports tops online, we often need clarification: is the size marked online standard? Will the sports t-shirt not fit me when I buy them? Especially when you invest in a quality t-shirt, vest, blouse, or tank top, you want it to be perfect for staying comfortable, fresh, and hassle-free while you train. Yes, when we shop online, we first need to be aware of whether our actual body size matches the online size chart. Therefore, the proper body measurements can help us get the perfect fit. Motolemon offers some standard guidelines below to help you buy your desired sports top online without problems.
