So it is defintely not a random talk or a lie that many Nigerian women don't know their right bra cup/band size.
 Ehen!! before my male readers  start  leaving this page , this post is also for you o..i am quite positive, you do not want your girlfriends or wife(wives :D) spending your money on the wrong bra plus you know how HOT she'll look if she just wore the right bra.

 Anyways, few days ago this lady on style network was talking about knowing one's band size/bra cup and buying the right bra. When I got home that day, it was my mum's turn to tell me about it..lol. She had gone to a store in Ikota shopping complex(when i find out the name, ill put it up here) to buy bras and fortunately for her, the lady did all the measurement for her. Hence, my mum came home excited and poured all her newly gained knowledge on me.

1. its advisable to wear your bra with your upper body bent forward, this way,every part of your breast is packed properly into the bra.
2.your bra should not divide your breast into two :P
3.the bridge of the bra should be inbetween the two breasts
4.the bottom iron part of the bra should be directly under your breast.
5.also your bra should be tight at first on the first hook not the second so that if it slacks later on you can always move to the second.

(if i remember more, ill put it up...my mum just kept on talking i just couldnt get everything..lol)

WARNING: those babes that purposely get smaller sizes so their breasts can look bigger..lol.. no need oo, just know your bra size and your breast will look fabulous *wink*

I have decided to try this out too so im hoping if you've got a tape rule when you're reading this ,you can do yours too as well.
you can watch the video or just follow the steps below the video.

STEP 1: Measure for band size:

How to Measure Bra Band Size
measure around your bra directly under your bust after expelling all air from your lungs - you want this measurement to be as small as possible. 
Round all fractional measurements to the nearest whole number.
 Bras come in even band sizes. If the rounded measurement you come up with is an even number, add 4 inches. If the rounded measurement you come up with is an odd number, add 5 inches.

The result is your band size.
MY REULST HERE IS 28inches and since that is an even number i will add 4inches
  28+4=32" my band size

STEP 2: Measure for cup size:

How to Measure Bra Cup Size


 Standing straight, with your arms at your side, measure around your body at the fullest part of your bust (while wearing a bra with your bust apex being midway between your elbow and your shoulder).


 Wrap the tape measure around you so that it is just touching, but not binding. If one of your breasts is significantly larger, put some type of padding in the cup of the smaller breast to make it even with the larger breast before taking your measurement.


 Round up or down to the nearest inch as you did to find your band size.

STEP 3: Calculate your bra size:


Subtract your band measurement (step 1) from your cup measurement (step 2). Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size.

Step 1: 28" under measurement +4" = 32" band
Step 2: 35" over measurement
Step 3: 35" - 32" = 3" or Cup "C"
DifferenceStandard Cup Size
0"-1/2" (1.3 cm)AA
1/2"- 1" (2.6 cm)A
2" (5.1 cm)B
3" (7.6 cm)C
4" (10.2 cm)D
5" (12.7 cm) DD or E
6" (15.2 cm)DDD or F
