This isn't just a case of knowing your chest measurement and buying a bra in that size, there is more maths involved unfortunately and it is worthwhile taking some time over to ensure that you get the correct size to end up with a good fitting bra!

Bra measuring for trannysFirstly you need a soft tape measure, not a metal one as that will end up hurting you in more ways than one! If you don't have a fabric one then next best thing is a piece of string and a ruler but to be accurate a proper one is going to be best. Next you need to be standing in front of a mirror to make sure you get the tape in the right place.

Standing straight and with your chest relaxed, pass the tape or string around your back and let it meet at the front, this 'band' should be touching the skin all round but not be pulled too tight where it digs in. The position of the tape should be roughly 2 inches below the nipple, this is where the natural breast tissue starts. It is not advisable to measure around from the point under your armpits, depending on your torso shape this may be much bigger than you need and therefore result in a bra that's too big.

Now that you have this measurement in inches the maths part comes in! If your measurement is an even number (after rounding up to the nearest whole figure) then you need to add another 2" and if it is odd add 3" - this gives you the final band measurement for your tranny bra.

One of the biggest mistakes that many ladies make is to buy a bra that fits on the smallest fastening (generally bras have three sets of hooks) and they then loosen it when needed - BUT you should ensure that the bra fits comfortably on the loosest fixing because with wear and washing the garment's fabric will stretch over time and therefore you can tighten the bra to keep the support & shape you need from it and it will last longer.

If you are going a bit more natural and use adhesive tape to create your own cleavage with what you have yourself do that now and then get the tape measure again and measure around the fullest part of the breast or going across the nipple - the measurement may well be more or less the same as the first one you took.

If there is little or no difference then the cup size is AA (training bra size!), less than one inch is a size A, 1 inch difference is a B and 2 inches a C and 3 inches would be a cup size D.

If you do have sufficient breast tissue to create a feminine cleavage yourself then a "chicken fillet" is ideal as put into the bra under your own breast will increase your curves by filling the bra more and giving a more natural look to your bosom!

So now that you know what bra size you are you can shop with more confidence that you will end up with a sexy bra that isn't going to ride up, slide down or let slip your little tranny secret!
