Did you know that 80% of all women are wearing the wrong size bra? (Statistic is taking from Wacoal) That’s a very significant amount considering that we have to wear a bra pretty much on a daily basis. Well, have no dear because Her Room is here to help!

HerRoom Bra Size Calculator is the easiest way to figure out your correct bra size. First, they need to tell you up front, that any bra sizing system where a tape measure is involved will not be totally accurate. The reason? A lot of factors can affect your measurements – the bra you’re wearing, the firmness of your breasts, the broadness of your back, the narrowness of your shoulders. These factors and more can give you a false bra size once you’ve measured yourself.

How to measure and fit a bra in three easy steps:

Afterwards you can see finding the right type of bra for your everyday need!

HerRoom has bras for every woman’s lifestyle and body type.
Our top women’s intimate apparel brands, including Bali, Barely There, Calvin Klein, Chantelle, Goddess, Hanro, Le Mystere, Maidenform, Natori, Olga, Panache, Playtex, Spanx, Vanity Fair and Wacoal. Brassieres are first categorized by size. There are average size bras and then plus size bras and full figure bras. Full figure starts at a D cup size or larger. Plus size starts at a D cup and a 40 band size. Next the construction for cup support is considered: underwire vs. contour vs. soft cup. Finally, bra style should be considered. The following bra types should be considered by all women as they build their brassier wardrobe.

Nursing Bras:
Every mother-to-be needs maternity bras to handle her growing breasts. A nursing bra is a maternity bra but with the added engineering of drop down cups so that baby can be nursed without Mom having to take her shirt off. At HerRoom we offer both maternity and nursing bras in full figured and plus size bra sizing.

Sexy Bras:
Okay, this is hard for some to imagine, but sexy lingerie should be a part of your wardrobe. Men simply love see through bras, shelf bras and sheer pieces. So, this category is at least worth considering.

Strapless Bras:
A strapless bra is a must-have in your wardrobe. They now come in better sizing so even if you wear size DD bras and larger, you can still find one that is supportive and flattering to your figure.

Push Up Bras:
If you wear a 32E bra, or GG cup bras you can forget this category. But if you’re like many women, you enjoy taking what you have and moving it around to create maximum cleavage… at least occasionally. The push-up bra has replaced traditional padded bras. No longer do you need padding to give your bust line a fuller look.

Sports Bras:
Most sports bras today are made with stretch microfiber fabrics such as Coolmax. It wicks moisture away from your skin and dries quickly to keep you comfortable throughout your workout. The choice of front or back close, underwire or soft cup, racerback or traditional sport bra is entirely up to you, and depends on the activity you want to wear it for. HerRoom offers a wide range of styles and sizes including plus size sport bras. See our exclusive Sports Bra “Bounce Test Videos” and compare over 30 sports bras in action.

Front Close Bra:
It’s a fact that front closure brassieres are much easier to get on. They can come with racerback styling to lay completely flat and invisible under sleeveless clothing. This style also helps keep bra straps in place. However, the inability to adjust for sizing makes this style hard to properly fit.

Minimizer Bra:
has the capability of reducing breast projection by up to 2 inches for a more flattering silhouette under clothes. Minimizer bras work miracles for women who traditionally wear full figure bras or big bras but want to fit into their favorite tight tops without their buttons looking as if they’re about to pop.

Convertible Bra:
Removable, adjustable straps are what distinguish this style from others. Varying the straps allows the wearer to create a racerback, backless or strapless bra style from the same garment. If you could only travel with one brassiere, this would be the one.

Padded bras:
The padded bra has really evolved over the years. It used to mean a bra with extra padding to increase your breast size. Today, a padded bra – or more accurately, a lightly padded bra – really means modesty. Molded cup bras with a thin layer of padding to prevent nipple show-through are called contour bras; but they are actually a type of padded bra. And, today, women consider a push-up bra a padded bra as well.

See-through bras
Okay, this kind of bra conjures up sexy bra to most women. Well, the truth is a see through bra is sexy, but it’s also a very good addition to your lingerie bra wardrobe. This style of bra is by definition very thin. It therefore tends to hide bra lines and blend in with what you are wearing. And, the added benefit of a see-through bra is that men absolutely love them – especially black see through bra and pantie sets.
