If you have checked your bras at home and they don't pass the test (Have you performed our Fit Test?), use this handy calculator at home to help guide you to your best size.   So grab a tape measure & pad & pencil and get ready for some calculations.   It's best to perform these measurements without wearing a bra.  

A

SNUG UNDERBUST MEASUREMENT

While holding your tape measure parallel to the floor, measure your rib cage right under where your breast tissue meets your torso.  The tape measure should be snug but not cutting into your skin.  Now take this measurement & round it to the nearest whole number (29.25" would round to 30").

WRITE THIS AS YOUR BAND SIZE

B

BUST MEASURMENT STANDING

Loosely measure the fullest part of your bust while standing, being sure to keep the tape measure parallel to the floor as you did in part A.

 

WRITE THIS NUMBER DOWN AS "B"

C

BUST MEASUREMENT LEANING

Looely measure the fullest part of your bust while LEANING FORWARD at the waist with your back parallel to the floor.

Example

WRITE THIS NUMBER DOWN AS "C"

Time to Calculate

Now that you have your measurements, let's determine your best size.  The illustration below assumes the measurements taken were as follows

 

 A = 30"

B = 35.5"

C = 36"

 

Subtract B from C:

  • If this number is 2 or GREATER, average the numbers of B & C then write this number down as D.
  • If the number is LESS THAN 2, write down the number of C as D as well.

          From our example: 36 - 35.5 = .5   Since it is LESS than 2, we record D as 36

 

 

You are almost there!!!  Now write down the number you determined in A & subtract it from the number determined as D.                Example:    36 - 30 = 6.

 

With this final number, refer to the chart below to find your cup size.   According to the chart below, 6 = a cup size of E.  You know your Band size to be 30, so  YOUR BRA SIZE would be 30E.

 

NOTE!!  This size is a UK Size & can be easily converted if necessary. (See link below)
