We're officially seven days into 2018 and our New Year's resolutions are in full swing (well, some of them are...it's too hard to resist a 3am McDonald’s at the weekend!).
This year, we’re focusing on self-care and feeling our very best; that’s why we're sharing some of our tips on how to become the ultimate lingerie connoisseur with an impressive underwear drawer. No hoarding allowed! 🙅
Step 1: Get Fitted
There's nothing worse than guessing or not knowing your bra size. No more shoving on any old bra you can find. It probably gives you an uncomfortable – and, let's face it, unsightly – double boob overspill. Your lady lumps deserve more than that, guuurl!
It's pretty simple to figure out your bra size in the comfort of your own home and it doesn't have to involve trekking to the shops and getting your nips out in front of a stranger.
Here’s how to do it:
- Measure just underneath where your bra sits ensuring you’re holding the tape flat against your skin. Round to the nearest whole number of inches.
- If the number is even, add four. If it’s odd, add five. This is your band size. (So if you measured 28 inches, your band size is 32. If you measured 29 inches, your band size is 34.)
- Measure around the fullest part of your chest (about nipple level). Round to the nearest whole number of inches.
- Subtract your band size from your bust measurement and use chart below. (For example, if your bust measurement 37 inches and your band size is 32, there’s a difference of 5 inches so you’re a DD)
Step 2: Out with the Old, In with the New
Stop hoarding your period pants from 2003 and your bra with the pesky underwire that stabs you every time you put it on. You spend your whole life inside your body so it's important to treat it with love and respect – this involves leaving your old nasties in 2017 where they belong!
Grab a black bag and go to town but don’t forget to save any that are still in good shape; you can recycle your old bras that no longer fit with a charity like Against Breast Cancer (more info here). 🙌
