Here you’ll find size charts for women’s and children’s clothes.  You’ll also find information about bra fitting and how to determine your pregnancy support sizes. Please read carefully the descriptions we provide to see if a company’s garments run big, small, etc.  If there is no description, that means the sizes run the same as most mall/department stores.  BEWARE, some companies sell a size misses 14 with the label “size 8,” and you may not know until you try it on. The best way to prevent this is to become familiar with a designer by visiting local boutiques and trying on suits and dresses designed by that label.

What Is Your Jeunique Bra Size?

1.        Measure around under your arms but OVER your chest (try not to include any bust tissue). This is your band size (round down for in between sizes)

2.        Now measure the fullest part of the bust and subtract the earlier measurement.  This difference (in inches) determines your cup size (see below).

3.        This is your starting estimate, and will work for 90% of you reading this.  Every woman’s body is different, so you may need to try on several different styles/brands to find the most comfortable, flattering fit.  If you are in the National Capital Area, contact us for style and fit advice or to arrange your own private fitting.  Better yet, gather a few friends together for a great evening of improving your appearance and comfort.  Please keep in mind that Precious and Pleasant is a Christian business, and all “Bra Parties” are conducted with the utmost of respect for the Word of God: All things are done in decency and in order.

 

       How To Tell If Your Bra Actually Fits:

1.        Is it painful, uncomfortable, annoying, or itchy?  Then it’s not the bra for you.

2.        Does it fit around your back?

a.          Can you fit 1 or 2 fingers comfortably? If yes then the band is right size.

b.        Can you fit 1 finger?  You need to move up in band size.

c.        Can you fit your whole hand?  Does it rise up your back? Do the straps fall down? You need to go down in band size.

3.  What about the cup? Your breast should completely fill the cup bra shouldn't any.

a.          Do you have extra room, gapping fabric? You need to go down in cup size.

b.        Do your “cups runneth over?” Is there spillage from the top, bottom, or sides? You need to move up in cup size.

4.        To avoid getting frustrated, or coming home empty handed: make sure you allow plenty of time so you can try on different styles of bras. Every style, fabric, and manufacturer will fit differently.  Find what works for your body.
