Do I Have The Right Size Bra?

Dear Do I Have The Right Size Bra?,

I am 13 and My mom has me wear a 30A size bra. I took the liberty of measuring my breasts because I think my bras are to small. When I measured, it said I was a B. so would this be the right fit or is my mom right. My bras feel tight and my breasts "leak" out of my bra. Please answer. thank you! :)


Dear Do I Have The Right Size Bra?,

If your bra feels tight and your breasts are bulging out of the sides, top, or bottom of the bra, it’s a good indication that your bra is too small for you. TeenHealthFX suggests you do some re-measuring to ensure you are wearing the correct sized bra. You can either measure yourself – you can get some tips from TeensHealth article Finding the Right Bra or the Center for Young Women’s Health article Measuring for a Bra – or you can go to a bra specialty store or the lingerie section of a department store where a saleslady could do a measurement for you. Having a properly fitted bra is important in terms of providing you the support you need, ensuring that you feel comfortable, and ensuring a good fit so that your bra will not be noticeable under your clothing.
