How To Measure your Bra Size

 

The tape measure is only an ESTIMATE with bra fitting. Sometimes for fuller busted women it just doesn't work. The best way to find your correct bra size is to look at how your bra fits in a mirror, recognise the faults and adjust them accordingly. Cup sizes are relative to the back size. If you go down in the back size, you need to increase the cup size. Similarly, if you go up in the back size, you need to go down in the cup size.

 

Back Size:

In inches, firmly measure under the root of the bust, so the tape measure is level all the way round the body.

If it is an odd number, round up to the next even number.

If it is an even number, this is your back size.

This will give you you back size.

Example: 

If your measurement is 31", round up to make 32. 

If your measurement is 32", this makes it 32.

 

 

 

Cup Size:

To get the cup size, measure over the fullest part of the breasts, keeping the tape measure level all around your body.

Your cup size is determined by the difference between the first and second measurement.

If the difference is 2, this is an A cup. If the difference is 3, this is a B cup and so on. The higher the difference, the bigger the cup size. 

Example:

Your measurement is 31", your second measurement is 38". This is a difference of 7 which would equate to a bust size of E.
