Can't Visit a Bra Fit Specialist ... try this Bra Fit Calculator
Whenever possible, visit your nearest bra fit specialists whenever it's time to purchase bras. However, if you don't have access to a store specializing in fit, then grab a tape measure and notepad & write down these measurements to get a good indication of your size.
NOTE: It is best NOT to wear a bra when taking these measurements.
A: SNUG UNDERBUST MEASUREMENT While holding the tape measure parallel to the floor, measure your rib cage right under where breast tissue begins. The tape measure should be snug but not cutting into your skin. Round to the nearest whole number (29.25" would round to 30"). This is your band size!
B: BUST MEASUREMENT STANDING Loosely measure the fullest part of your bust while standing, being sure to keep the tape measure parallel to the floor.
C: BUST MEASUREMENT LEANING Loosely measure the fullest part of your bust while leaning over with your back parallel to the floor.
Example: A = 30"
B = 35.5"
C = 36"
Now that you have your measurements & know your band size, let's determine your cup size:
Subtract B from C
If this number is2 or GREATER, average the 2 numbers & write this number down asD.
If the number is LESSthan 2, write down the number of C as D as well
You are almost there! Now write down the number you determined as A and subtract the number determined as D. Use the chart below to find your cup size. Example: 36 - 30 = 6. According to the chart below, 6 = a cup size of E.
YOUR BRA SIZE would be 30E
Note that this size is a UK Size & can be easily converted into sizing from other countries.
But remember,you are more than just a number & you mostly likely won't be the same size in every brand. The team at Anna Bella is happy to offer guidance if you must purchase online.

Make sure she is ready for anything with bras that fit properly & are comfortable - possibly a strapless bra for those little tops & dresses - and maybe a bra-sized sports bra for excercise to keep those Freshman 15 at bay.
