You remember stuffing your bra back when you were 12 and 13? Those awkward stages of puberty had you super confused on what to do with your body. You saw all of the girls with the bigger boobs getting the most attention. Now that you’re older, the girls with the bigger boobs are the ones getting picked on about how big their boobs are. Life just ain’t far! Since boob size is something a girl really has no say so over (unless you can afford surgery), we might as well work with what God gave us! Check out these rules to follow when looking for the perfect bra!

(1) Get measured: This may not be necessary for some, but I think it’s a great idea that every woman knows her true bra size. Go to a professional to get measured. Most of them are free. Nordstrom and Lane Bryant are very popular places for this, or you can click here if you don’t have a lot of time to physically go!

Do not let anyone talk you into spending a ton of money on a bra. If you feel comfortable doing that, it’s fine, but there are some inexpensive bras of good quality as well. Do your research before you go buy anything!

(3) If it doesn’t feel good, it’s not good: This is a simple rule. If the bra is rising up your back, the strap is too tight on your shoulders, or the cup is too big…don’t buy it! Don’t waste your money. You will regret it in the long run. Buy what makes you feel comfortable. The more comfortable your bra, the better you will function throughout the day. No one wants to keep stopping because their bra is pestering them.

At least two or three good ones that they feel confident in. Even the smallest boobs should be supported sometimes. You never know what or who you may run into.

(5) Embrace your boobs: Big or small, embrace them all! Your breast size doesn’t make you who you are. It’s what’s inside. Don’t let your value as a woman be determined based on the size of your boobs. People may have something to say about it, but they don’t have to live in your body. You do! It’s important that you are OK.
