Get the measuring tape out and measure yourself. it’s best to measure without a bra on if you can do it. Women with lager Cup Sizes may have some sagging due to the weight of the breast. This completely normal and natural. I have found for me it’s best to measure my under the bust and bust without a bra. You might choose to do the bust measurement with your bra on. If so, fasten it the last hook and eye. Since the measurement is just a starting point, I leave will it up to you to decide what you prefer. Please Measure yourself in inches.
You going to do two measurements. Please do this standing up.
- Under the bust– Measure around your rib cage right up to the crease under the breast. You want to make sure that the tapes doesn’t ride up at all and stays parallel to ground. Breath out. You want to pull it pretty tight but still be comfortable. You don’t want to leave marks or indents in the skin.
- The Bust– If you want you can put your bra on. If you have “saggy” breast please lean forward, so that your upper body is in parallel with the ground. Now the fullest part of your breast is the part that hangs down the most(I know it sounds bad but once you get a proper fitting bra, your breast will be uplifted, and you will be happy with how your girls look). Take the measuring tape around your breast at the fullest part and measure. that will be your Bust measurement.
If your breast are not “saggy” you don’t have to lean forward.
Some people have half-inch or quarter-inch measurements. Example: 34.5 or 23.25 I prefer to use them rather than not use them. So don’t round down or round-up if you do get them until after the math part is out-of-the-way.
Ready for the easy part. the Bust –the Under the Bust = Cup Size in inches.
Under the Bust = Band size
If your Under the Bust measurement is even. If it is odd then you can choose to go up to the next even number for you Band Size and keep the same Cup Size or go down to the next even number and add one cup size. The bra is made of out stretchy material, so it will stretch to fit you. If you find that the bra that you are wearing it to tight you can go up a down a cup and up in the band.
Cup size in inches(UK). A=1in B=2in C=3in D=4in DD=5in E=6in F=7in FF=8in G=9in GG=10in H=11in HH=12in J=13in JJ=14in K=15in KK=16in L=17in LL=18in
Ok so now you have your bra size, Time to do a dance!! Oh wait. It’s just a starting point. Sorry stop you mid dance, but you might have to try several in each bra style and manufacturer. Even styles made by the same brand will fit differently. So you will want to try out your bra by 3 or 4. I.e i’m a 36KK but I wear a 36K. When i try on bras I want to get a 38JJ 36K 36KK 38K 34KK. Most online shops except returns. But this method might take you a long time to find the bra of your dreams.
Feel free to send me an email if you want me to find out what your size is?
