Finding your measurements...
(BUST MEASUREMENT) Using our diagram for reference, measure around the fullest part of your bust & around your back in a using a tape measure. Make a note of this measurement in inches.
(BAND MEASUREMENT) Now measure your underbust, this is around your rib cage immediately below where you breast tissue begins, around your back in a parallel line. Again, record this measurement in inches.
*Sometimes it’s a good idea to also take this measurement with lungs expanded (having taken a big breath in) if this is a large difference then pick a point in the middle of both measurements.*
Now you’ve got your measurements, it’s time for the complicated bit... but stick with us and you’ll be fine!
Calculating you bra size...
You already have your Band size (the number part of your bra size) this is simply the measurement in inches of your Underbust rounded up or down to the closest even number... eg measurement of 31.5inches = 32 band.
Take your BUST MEASUREMENT & *minus* your UNDER-BUST MEASUREMENT.
eg. if your Underbust measures 32inches, with bust 38inches you will calculate ... 38-32=6
Now take the number your left with to determine your CUPSIZE from the chart below...
Eg. The above size would be a 32E
If you are between sizes then here is when you can decide what fit you like (or drop us an email and we can recommend according to how different brands come up size wise - we all know this can vary wildly from brand to brand!)
