Choosing the right bra size is an imminent part of a female's life and, if not done properly, can have large consequences such as back problems, bad posture, muscle tension, and headaches which is why this topic is relevant to positive sexual health. Female's breast sizes can vary depending on the person and their body shape, meaning that bra sizes also vary. Some people have small boobs and some people have larger boobs and there is no natural way to change that. A person's breasts also change size throughout that person's life depending on their weight, during their menstrual cycles, and throughout puberty so it is good to measure yourself frequently so as to avoid wearing the wrong size.
Bras usually have two measurements. There is the band size, which is the part that goes around your rib cage, and the cup size, which is the part that holds your lovely jubblies. The band sizes are measured in numbers starting from 30 and going up in twos (30, 32, 34, 36, etc...) and the cup sizes are measured in letters starting with AA and going up letter by letter (AA, A, B, C, etc...).
You can go into lingerie stores and ask someone to measure your breasts for you or, if you are uncomfortable with that, here are two really good sources that explain how to find your bra size at home super easily:
This topic needs to be discussed because 8 out of 10 females in the world are wearing bras that don't fit them properly which can damage the person's health and physical state. So this post can help to inform people of their mistakes and improve their health.
