How To Determine Bra Size?

 

To determine your bra size, you will need to measure your bust and underbust (ribcage) sizes. Here's how to do it:

Measure your bust size: Wrap a tape measure around the fullest part of your bust, making sure it is level and not too tight. Round up to the nearest whole number and write down this measurement.

Measure your underbust size: Wrap a tape measure around your ribcage, just below your bust. Make sure the tape measure is level and not too tight. Round up to the nearest whole number and write down this measurement.

Calculate your bra size: Subtract your underbust measurement from your bust measurement to find your bra size difference. Use the following chart to determine your bra size based on this measurement:

 

Bra size difference                                        Bra size

0 inches (Less than 2.54 cm)                       AA

1 inch ( 2.54 cm)                                              A

2 inches (5.08 cm)                                           B

3 inches (7.62 cm)                                           C

4 inches (10.16 cm)                                         D

5 inches (12.7 cm)                                           DD

6 inches (15.24 cm)                                         DDD

For example, if your bust measurement is 36 inches and your underbust measurement is 32 inches, your bra size difference is 4 inches. Based on the chart, your bra size would be a D.

 

Keep in mind that bra sizes can vary between brands, so it's important to try on different sizes and styles to find the best fit for you. It may also be helpful to consult with a bra fitting specialist or seek the advice of a salesperson at a lingerie store.
