How do I know if I have the right size?

SHIRT

  •  Too loose:  The band of the shirt does not not touch your skin in the back and there are wrinkles in the fabric. 
  • Too tight: The band of the shirt digs into your skin and the top seam is not right under your pecs.
  • Good fit: The band of the shirt is close-fitting and lies straight across your back. You should also be able to fit your finger under the band with slight pressure and it should fit a little more snug than your everyday shirts.

BRA
 
The band
  • Too tight: If the band digs into your skin and leaves chafing marks, then it may be too tight.​
  • Too loose: If the band rides up in the back and there are wrinkles in the fabric, your band may be too loose. Make sure the band fits flat against your ribcage and fits a little more snug than a non-sports bra.​
  • Great fit! If the band is firm fitting and lies straight across your back, you’ve got the right fit. You should also be able to fit your finger under the band with slight pressure.

 
The straps

  • Too tight: If the band digs into your shoulders, there’s an excessive amount of tissue bulging from the armpit area or the band sits on your breasts, then your straps may be too tight.  ​
  • Too loose: If there’s a gap between the skin and strap while standing straight, and there’s an excessive amount of wrinkles in one or more places in the fabric, then your straps may be too loose.​
  • Great fit! If the straps are in constant contact with your skin and you’re able to fit your finger under the straps with slight pressure, then you’ve got the perfect size.


The cups

  • Too small: If your breasts spill out of the cup and feel excessively compressed, then your cup size may be too small.​
  • Too big: If the cups are too big, there may be one or more big wrinkles in the fabric.​
  • Great fit! If the cups fully cover your breast tissue, sit flush against your skin with a smooth transition from bra to chest and create an overall nice breast shape, then you’ve got the perfect fit.
