Your bra needs to fit correctly. We are all different shapes and sizes, understanding how to measure yourself correctly will make a big difference! Please use this fit guide to help you understand your perfect bra size.
Measure for your band size
To measure for your band size, place the measuring tape around the ribcage, directly under the bust. Make sure the tape is straight and flat across the back and parallel to the floor. Pull the tape snug. Round the measurement to the nearest even number. This number will be your band size and is the first step in determining what bra size you are.
Measure for your cup size
First, measure at the fullest part of the bust with the tape parallel to the floor. If someone is measuring you, make sure to keep your arms at your side. Do not pull the tape snug, but rather pull the tape just gently enough to keep it in place. Round the number up or down to the nearest full inch. Write this number down on a piece of paper with the words “cup measurement” next to it.
Calculate your size
Bra's and panties
Each inch difference between your cup and band measurement represent a cup size:
1 INCH DIFFERENCE: A CUP
2 INCH DIFFERENCE: B CUP
3 INCH DIFFERENCE: C CUP
4 INCH DIFFERENCE: D CUP
5 INCH DIFFERENCE: E CUP, ETC...
To determine what bra size you are, subtract the “band measurement number” from the “cup measurement number”. For instance, If your band measurement is 34 Inches and your cup measurement is 37 you would subtract 34 from 37 and end up with a 3-inch difference. Each inch indicates a cup size. For example, 3 inches is a C cup, 4 inches a D cup, 5 inches a E cup, and so on. Now, team your cup size with your back band and you have your bra size. Based on the measurements above, you would be a 34C.
