Use these guidelines to ensure a proper fit in a Moving Comfort sports bra. You'll need to determine your band size, bust size and cup size.
When determining your band size in inches, first measure around your ribcage, just underneath your breasts. The tape should be snug, but not constrictive, and straight all around. Add five inches to this ribcage measurement, then round up to the nearest even number. This is your band measurement and also your Moving Comfort bra size.
Measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back, but slightly loose all around. Round this measurement up to the next whole number and record in inches. This number is only used to help determine your Moving Comfort cup size.
Subtract your band size (step 1) from your bust size (step 2). The result will determine your Moving Comfort sports bra cup size, based on the table below. For example, if your bra/band size was 34" and your bust measurement was 36", the difference would be 2". That means your cup size would be B. Your overall Moving Comfort bra size would be a 34B.
Fit Tip: Wear a lingerie bra that doesn't minimize or offer extra padding when you measure your band and bust sizes. Otherwise your measurements may be less accurate.

When shopping for a Moving Comfort sports bra, there are a few additional considerations prior to making a purchase.
Moving Comfort knows how important smooth, moisture-wicking fabrics are in the construction of quality sports bras. That's why many of their sports bras have Tactel® nylon or DriLayer® polyester fabrics for moisture transfer; cotton is never the primary fabric used. Moving Comfort sports bras also make use of Lycra® or spandex for long-lasting, dependable stretch.
Expect to replace a Moving Comfort sports bra every 6-12 months, depending on frequency of usage. Once you can't read a bra's label anymore, it's definitely time to retire it. You can make it last longer by hand washing it. If you prefer to machine wash your Moving Comfort bras for convenience, always fasten the hooks before washing and hang to dry.
