The band of your sports bra should be firm fitting and lie straight across your back on the loosest hook and eye fastening.
If the band is riding up at the back, or you suffer from straps digging in, then go down a band size (remember: if you do this, go up a cup size as well).
If the band is too tight, difficult to fasten or there is excess skin hanging out of the band, then you should go up a band size (remember: if you do this, go down a cup size).
The cups should encase all of your breast tissue, and your sports bra should sit flush against your skin with a smooth transition from sports bra to chest.
If the cups are gaping, or you are experiencing chafing under the armpits, then the cup size is too big and you should go down a size.
If there is spillage of breast tissue out of the sports bra (from any direction!) or the bra sits away from the breastbone, then the cups are too small. Fix this by going up a cup size.
