1. Know your needs.
Evaluate the tops that you own the most. This is how you can determine the types of bras you need. Check out this guide to help you figure out what you need for each clothing style.
2. Be aware of your body type.
The A-cup team are free to wear bralettes or skivvies—padless, lightweight brassieres. For those who have a full bosom, go for full-coverage bras to avoid spillage and quadra-boobs.

3. Get measured.
Lingerie stores have trained bra-fitters that can check your bra size. You can also refer to this video to learn how to properly measure your bust and cup size.
4. Accept that you are not defined by your size.
Now that you know your bra size, do not be disheartened if you're a B cup when you've lived your life as a C cup. Slipping on a bra with the proper fit is what's important.
5. Get measured every six months.
Whether it's because of weight loss or weight gain, your bra size wll be affected. These are the common signs that tell if you're wearing the right one: Your band shouldn't be too loose or too tight; the straps shouldn't fall off or strangle your shoulders; and the cups shouldn't be too roomy or filled up that it forms a quadra-boob. Here are other telltale signs to watch for.
6. Look in the mirror and examine everything.
While you're still in the fitting room, see if you spot a side boob, or if the underwire feels like it's piercing through your soul. The perfect bra should smoothen the lumps and should never hurt.
7. Be mindful of this rule: Bras are not meant to be seen.
If you're a fan of wearing black tops, then please wear black bras. If your brassiere is in a lighter shade, it will gladly show itself, especially in flash photography! White tops are best paired with nude bras, not white ones.
