Measure Your Bust

You need just two measurements 

Firstly, measure your bra (back) sizesee 1) in the photo below

 

To measure your bra size take the measurement around your body directly under your bust.  For a Basque, Corset or Strapless Bra, add 2 (or maybe 3) inches.

e.g. if the measurement is 34 inches then add 2 inches = 36 inches.  Your correct bra size is therefore 36 inches.

 

For an everyday Bra which has straps, add 4 (or maybe 5) inches.

e.g. if the measurement is 34 inches then add 4 inches = 38 inches.  Your correct bra size is therefore 38 inches.

 

Secondly, measure your cup size

 

see 2) in the photo below

To measure your cup size – take the measurement of the fullest part of your bust.  The difference between this measurement and your bra size is your cup size.  – e.g. if your bra size is 34 inches and the measurement of the fullest part of your bust is 35 inches, the difference between the two is 1.  Based on the information below your cup size is A.

 

If the difference between your back size and cup size is

 

1 inch – your cup size is A

2 inches – your cup size is B

3 inches – your cup size is C

4 inches – your cup size is D

5 inches – your cup size is DD

6 inches – your cup size is E

7 inches – your cup size is F

8 inches – your cup size is FF

9 inches – your cup size is G

10 inches – your cup size is GG

Please remember that this is only a guide and that with different bra manufacturers, sizes may vary.  You should try on the bra and check that the wires are flat against your skin and that your breasts are fully enclosed without any bulges.
