Often wearing a wrong bra size can ruin the outer appearance of your otherwise flawless outfit. Follow this step by step guide on how to measure your bust size and bra cup size to ensure a perfect fit. To measure and to find which bra is perfect, you need a measuring tape and your best-fitting bra (preferably an underwire, not a minimizer or sports bra).
• How To Measure Your Band Size – After wearing your bra, take a snug measurement around your ribcage, directly under your bust and level all around. If you get an odd number, round it up to the next even number.
• How To Measure Your Bust Size – Use the measuring tape to measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust by keeping the tape level equal to your body. If it is required, round it up to the nearest inch.
• How To Measure Your Bra Cup Size – Subtract your band size from your bust size. The difference can be used to find your cup size on the bra size chart.
If you're not able to calculate using the above-mentioned measurement process, you can calculate using our bra size calculator.
