Bra Sizing

We know how hard it can be to find the perfect size bra, it is always recommended that you get professionally fitted for a bra because using a tape measure to obtain your bra size can be accurate, but it’s not always exact. We also understand that not everyone has access or feels comfortable with being fitted or maybe you’d just like to have a better understanding of how to get the perfect bra size so below we’ve put together a guide to help you.
 

BRA BAND SIZE

Make sure you’re wearing your best fitting, non-padded bra (also no sports or minimiser bras) before you start measuring. Place the measuring tape around your rib cage snugly not too tight just under your bust, measure in inches.  If it’s an odd number go down one. Use the Band Size Converter to find your size. just because you wear a size 14 doesn’t mean you’re band size will be the same you may find that it’s a smaller size

CUP SIZE

Using the measuring tape, place it around your breasts snugly. Take the measurement from the fullest part of your bust once again measuring in inches. Now that you have your Band & Bust measurements subtract your band size from your bust measurement this will give you your cup size. Use the Cup Size Converter to find your cup size.

Now you’ve converted your measurements and have both the band and cup measurement. Remember you want it to be a firm but comfortable fit that way it is guaranteed to support you.

Example:
Rib Cage Measurement: 38 inches = Australian Size 16
Bust Measurement: 45 inches
Cup Size: 45 – 38 = 7 which gives me an F
Bra Size: 16 F (UK 38F  US 38G)
