What do the letters ABCD stand for?
Let’s have a little trivia here. Do you understand the letters ABCD and the numbers 32, 34, and so on?
Here’s what Kidz World says:
The letters - like A, B, C, D - stand for cup sizes. The numbers - like 32, 34, 36, 38 – tell you the band size – that's the part of the bra that goes around your torso. In other words, a 34A means that your boobs are an A cup and that your bra is 34 inches around

There are things that you must remember for you to know if you are wearing a fitted bra. It is actually easy to figure out if you are not wearing your bra size. Check these out:
- 1When you feel the hook and eye at the back a little scratchy and the underwires are digging somewhere on your breasts, well that is an indicator that you've got a wrong bra.
- 2Don on a white shirt. If you see anything that is bulging, then it's definitely not your size.
- 3When you feel your bra straps are falling off your shoulder even if you adjusted them correctly it is because you are not wearing your correct size.

Frequently Ask Question
I bet you have lots of questions still left unanswered, so these right here will give you the answers to those questions that have been bugging you all this time.
1. Can you wear the same bra everyday?
The answer is "NO." Please never do this. Bras have elastics that stretches when you are wearing them, and it needs 24-48 hours to go back to its original form. If you are wearing the same bra every day, then that bra will lose its shape, or it will become "wonky," nobody wants that.
2. How often can you wash your bra?
If you are wearing a different bra every day for a week, then you may wash them once a week. This is if you want your bra to stay in shape or for best result only.
3. Is machine wash "good" for a bra?
Based on my own experience, machine wash can ruin mostly everything especially wired stuff like bras. But here's a quick hack for that. If you are really that of a busy person, you may put your bras in a lingerie bag first before you machine wash them.
Kindly disregard machine dry for your bras. Heat is no good for spandex, and as we all know, every bra has a bit of spandex in it. You wouldn't want to ruin the shape of your bra that easily so better hang dry your bras.
To “Cup” It off...
