How to measure your Bra Size

Amazingly 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra!

Here’s a little helping hand on how to get it right….

You need to be wearing a bra that is measured correctly.  (Avoid push-up or padded bras.) If you have a prosthetic, pop it in and then measure yourself. If you are in between sizes, we suggest you opt for the larger size.

Step 1 – Measure under your bust (Band Size)

Standing up and relaxing, breathe out (No – this isn’t yoga!), wrap a tape measure around your back and just under your bust line.  Hold it firmly and write down the measurement in centimeters.  If someone else is measuring for you, keep your arms relaxed and by your side.

Step 2 – Measure your bust (Cup Size)

Next, lift the measuring tape slightly, and measure around your back and over the widest swell of your breast.  This time not as firmly.  Write the measurement down in centimeters.

Step 3 – Voila! Find your bra size by using this grid

Things to remember…

 

If your straps are digging in on your shoulders = you probably need to go down a size in the band.  Your band should do all the work of the support, not the straps.

 

If your band is riding up your back = you need to go down a band size.

 

If your breasts are spilling out over the top of your cup = you should go up a cup size. (To a mug – ha ha!)

If you go UP a band size = you need to go DOWN a cup size. (ie 12C = 14B)

If you go DOWN a band size = you need to go UP a cup size. (ie 12B = 10C)
(It can all get a bit confusing – I know.) 


Please remember that all this is rather generic.  We all differ a little bit and don’t all fit the perfect equation (even if we think we’re perfect!).  That’s what makes us all so beautiful in our own special way.
