Girls Sports Bra Fit Guide
A sports bra makes the difference between staying in sport and sitting out. Empower your girl to be her best self with a supportive sports bra that allows her to stay active and confident. This helpful guide will walk you through finding the perfect fit and style.
How To Measure
1. Measure Chest
Holding a soft measuring tape horizontally, pull it all the way around the body at the fullest part of the chest.
2. No Measuring Tape?
Grab a string (or even a shoelace), a pen, and a ruler. Pull the string around the chest horizontally at the fullest part — similar to using a measuring tape — and use the pen to mark where one end of the string meets the other side. Then, lay the string on a flat surface and use a ruler to determine the chest measurement.
3. To Find the Bra Size…
Use the chest measurement from steps 1 or 2 to find the bra size on the chart at the top of the screen. If the measurement falls between sizes on the chart, opt for the larger size — a slightly larger bra will be more comfortable than a bra that’s too tight.
*Extended size (+) sports bras differ only in circumference, not length or style.
