Fit and Measurement

How to fit a sports bra:

Essentially the bra should feel comfortable when on the body. This means that the straps should not be digging in and causing discomfort and although the bra should reduce breast movement, the wearer should not feel too constricted or experience difficulty breathing. The Powerband should sit snugly under the bust and remain in place throughout exercise.

It is worth knowing that it is completely normal to experience some breast movement while exercising but this should not cause discomfort.

How to measure for the correct bra:

As Sportjock bras are fitted from the standard bra size it is necessary to know this measurement.The guide below is a generic guide to measuring your bra size and it is not specific to Sportjock. To get a bra size you need two measurements: the under-bust and over-bust measurements. In the UK we measure bra sizes in inches.

First Step:
Obtain the under-bust or ribcage measurement:

To do this, put the tape measure around the chest just under the bust so it fits snugly.
If the measurement is an even number, e.g. 28″, 30″ you need to add 4″.
If the measurement is an odd number, e.g. 29″, 31″ you need to add 5″.
i.e., if you measure 31″ you would add 5″ and the correct size would be 36″.

Second Step:
You need the cup size measurement.

To do this, put the tape measure around the fullest part of the cup.
If the measurement is less than your under-bust bra size you are an AA cup size.
If the measurement is the same as your under-bust bra size you are an A cup size.
If the measurement is 1″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a B cup size.
If the measurement is 2″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a C cup size.
If the measurement is 3″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a D cup size.
If the measurement is 4″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a DD cup size.
If the measurement is 5″ more than your under-bust bra size you are an E cup size.
If the measurement is 6″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a F cup size.
If the measurement is 7″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a FF cup size.
If the measurement is 8″ more than your under-bust bra size you are a G cup size.

Remember that the under-bust measurement must always include the added 4 or 5 Inches.
