Women’s breasts change over time, that’s a fact. Being pregnant, menopause, gaining or losing weight, all of this affects your bra size. It is therefore recommended to measure your bra size every year. Of course you could visit a lingerie specialist store to have it measured, but you can also do it at home.:
Measure the girth of your chest under the breasts (chest size).
Measure the size of your breasts (cup size) along the broadest part of your breasts.
