What will you need?
tape measure (preferably with both inches and
centimeters since that will allow you to know
your sizes in both types of units and then you
will have no problem at all selecting the right
bra for you)
- A full length mirror
How to measure your bra size?
- Undress completely on the top.
- Measure yourself in inches around the ribcage below your bust. (Data A)
- Now measure yourself around the fullest part of your bust. (Data B)
- Add 5 (for odd numbers) and 4 (for
even numbers) onto the first measurement to get your bra size (in inches).
- To find out the cup size, calculate
the difference between data B and data A and then use
the table below:
|Up to one inch
|Up to two inches
|Up to three inches
|Up to four inches
|Up to five inches
|Up to six inches
|Up to seven inches
|Up to eight inches
you will never know your exact
bra size till you try
something on. Each woman is different and that is
why trial and error works. If you need to make
minor adjustments to your bra, please do it. It
will do you a lot of good. And also remember that
size changes with weight, age, menstrual cycle,
pregnancy, etc. So it is a good idea to change
your bra as soon as you realize that the bra is too
tight or too loose.
Disclaimer: As I said above, the best way
to find out is to get yourself measured by a pro
fitting expert. These calculations give you a
starting point but in the end, each woman is
different. These calculations also don't work
particularly well for women with small breasts.
