If you are measuring for the outerwear that should be worn outside the bra like the sexy tank top, bodycon jumpsuit, or the bodycon romper, you need to wear a comfortable bra to measure the bust size, and the bust circumference is the longest circle of your breast part including the back.
You also need to use the specialized tape to measure the bust just like measuring the waist or hip, so you need to wrap the tape naturally around your bust that you have found in the first step as the following shows. Please remember, when measuring any part of your body, the announcements are the same: wrap the tape naturally, don’t make it too tight or too loose, and you should also make the tape all on the same level around so that you can get the accurate value.
The size of the bra is calculated based on your shoulder straps and cup. One thing that is often ignored, but is also very important, is your breast’s shape, as it important in your body shape, and then you can find a comfortable bra.

Finally, you can grab the tape to measure the bust of the shirt. The bust of the shirt is also the maximum line of the half top part of the shirt, because the hem of a shirt is longer than the bust normally, and the bust we are talking about is definitely not the hem.

And if the shirt’s bust is bigger than your bust, it may a comfortable shirt for you, and if you want to have an oversized shirt, just pick the bigger size. You should take care of the shirt that is made of 100% cotton, it may shrink after washing, so ask the seller about its quality first and then choose the fitted size or the bigger size to avoid shrinkage.
