Bra Size: How to Measure Your Breast Size for the Best Fityou get can you
Anyone who has worn an ill-fitting bra or the wrong bra size knows that doing so can ruin an otherwise flawless outfitor worse, an entire day. The breast pain and backaches that can come with large breasts are nothing to joke about. Bra size is notoriously fickle between different lingerie brands; a C-cup at one store can easily be a D-cup at another, and some bra sizes can grow and shrink especially in band size over the course of a day or between washings. The best option is to know your bra size by taking bust measurements using these simple measuring instructions, which will ensure a perfect fit in band and in cupand can even help you find the right amount of support. Equipment is minimal. Best of all, knowing how to measure your bust will make adjusting to changes in your breasts from losing or gaining weight, hormone fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and more so much less stressful.
Welcome to Linda's online Bra Size Calculator! Our bra fitting calculator is based on measurements in inches. Keep in mind that accurately measuring bra size with a tape measure is not always an exact science, so feel free to reach out to our bra fit experts for further help. With your bra on, measure firmly around your rib cage, directly underneath your breasts. The tape measure should be horizontal around your body and should not drop in the back. This is your underbust or band measurement. With your bra on, hold the tape measure firmly around the fullest part of your bust.
This part of the bra provides the majority of the support so it is important that it fits firmly, parallel to the cups. Look in the mirror and check that the band is at the same level all around your body. The cups of a bra, especially when underwired should go right around the contour of the breast sitting flat against your ribs without digging into the breast tissue. The whole breast should also fit neatly into the cup with no excess of flesh showing on the sides of the cup or spilling out over top. This applies even when wearing push-up or low cut bras. In extreme cases wearing cups that are too small will give the appearance of four breasts. There should not be any space underneath the cups at the root of the breast or any gaping across the top half of the cup.
FEW women in the UK know their exact bra measurements, with some wearing the wrong size for years. Here's how you can measure yourself to find out your correct size - without even leaving the house! To measure your bra size at home, all you need to be wearing is a non-padded bra and have a tape measure in inches to hand. First, you need to measure around the bottom of the band of the bra directly under the bust - making sure the tape is very snug. If the size is an even number add four, and if it is odd add five - this will then give you your back size. Then take the tape measure across your bust and again measure in inches, rounding to the nearest inch. The difference in the inches between the two then gives the cup size.
