How to measure your bra size

# It is always recommended that you get professionally fitted for a bra because to measure your bra size while can be accurate it does differ from person to person. Remember that all bras have a “sister size” so if you measure a bra size that doesn’t seem accurate try its sister size.

1. Bra Band Size

Wrap the measuring tape around your rib cage snugly just under your bust. Make sure you’re wearing a good fitting, non-padded bra while measuring, measure in inches. If it’s an odd number go down one. Use the Band Size chart below to convert your band size.

  • Bras stretch in the back; your bra should fit firmly on the loosest hook when new;
  • Band is level from front to back;
