If you're like most women (80% of you!) and don't know your bra size, a simple measurement is a starting place.
Grab a measuring tape! If you don’t have one, a piece of string and a ruler will do.
BAND SIZE MEASUREMENT
1. While looking in a mirror, wrap the measuring tape (or string) around your back and under your boobs around your rib cage. (Hint: You may need to lift your boob up to get an accurate measurement)
2. Be sure that the tape or string is totally straight around your body. The tape or string should meet in the center front. Take note of this measurement, or make a mark on the string where the end meets the other side, then measure from the end of the string to your mark.
Using the chart below, find your band size. (Hint: If your measurement is higher than 42”, round the measurement up to the nearest even number to get your band size.)
CUP SIZE MEASUREMENT
3. While looking in the mirror, wrap the measuring tape (or string) around your back and across the fullest part of your boobs, usually right across the center of the nipple. Be sure that the measuring tape or string is totally straight around your body.
4. Subtract your band measurements (top line of the ‘Band Size Chart’) from your cup measurement. Using the below chart and the difference in inches, determine your cup size.
EXAMPLE - If your band measurement is 36” and your cup measurement is 38”, your band size is 38” and your cup size is a B (because there is a 2” difference between your band measurement and your cup measurement).
