How to Measure Your Bra Size

You need a measuring tape, mirror or an assisting hand. Then, follow the below steps on how to know your perfect size:

  1. Measure your bra Band size: Lift up your breast tissue and measure directly under the bust, across your ribcage. If you get an odd number, round up to the next even number to get your band size.
  2. Measure your bust size: Measure slightly loosely around the fullest part of your bust with the tape straight across and around your back.
  3. Determine your bra cup size: Subtract your “band size” from your “bust size” and use the difference to find your bra cup size.

Be informed that each numerical result from the subtraction represents a letter in this formula-(34-36=2). 1 represent Acup, 2 represent Bcup, 3 represent Ccup, 4 represent Dcup, 5 represent Ecup, 6 represent Fcup, 7 represent Gcup, 8 represent Hcup, 9 represent Icup, 10 represent Jcup, 11 represent Kcup.

For example, if you measure a 36 inch band size, and a 38 inch cup size, the difference is 2: which would indicate a 36B cup. If you do not own a measuring tape or mirror or assisting hand, then come into our store for a free bra fitting.

We look forward to seeing you.

Lingerie Fabric: Know the Fabric!

Blog Image janet

Fabrics determine the final look and feel of any lingerie garment. They are close to your skin and need to be considered carefully as some can cause skin rashes, itching, thrush, and infections. The right fabric in the wrong weather can also ruin your day.

For our climate, natural fibers such as cotton jersey, performance jersey, and bamboo are excellent. They wick away moisture and adjust to our body temperature. Nylon Spandex-Lycra, which is also great, generally comes in sheer, matte finish, stretch, and shiny; these determine how the finish styles move with our body. Authentic silk/silk jersey are also great because they give a luxurious effect to any lingerie style. Lace made with cotton or linen is wonderful.

Avoid synthetic fibers such as polyester and rayon. They look like silk, but they are not silk. They irritate the skin and are itchy, especially for sensitive skin. They trap moisture in and increase body odor.
At LuLu, the choice of fabric is important to us. We carefully consider the options and choose the right fabric and fiber for you and our weather in Nigeria. It’s not just about the look; the clothes need to breathable and comfortable. They also need to perform well for our hot climate environment.

While you are focusing on the look, style, and price while making your next online or in-store purchase, read the style/product description section and care label for fabric information. Stay informed with LuLu, because we care.
