Bra Size


Bra Size guide

Bra size (also known as brassiere measurement or bust size) indicates the size characteristics of a bra. While there are a number of bra sizing systems in use around the world, the bra sizes usually consist of a number, indicating the size of the band around the woman's torso, and one or more letters that indicate the breast cup size. Bra cup sizes were first invented in 1932 while band sizes became popular in the 1940s. For convenience, because of the impracticality of determining the size dimensions of each breast, the volume of the bra cup, or cup size, is based on the difference between band length and over-the-bust measurement.

Manufacturers try to design and manufacture bras that correctly fit the majority of women, while individual women try to identify correctly fitting bras among different styles and sizing systems.

The shape, size, position, symmetry, spacing, firmness, and sag of individual women's breasts vary considerably. Manufacturers' bra size labelling systems vary from country to country because no international standards exist. Even within a country, one study found that the bra size label was consistently different from the measured size. As a result of all these factors, about 25% of women have a difficult time finding a properly fitted bra, and some women choose to buy custom-made bras due to the unique shape of their breasts.

 How to measure bra size

1: Band size

Pull the tape measure around your chest, just below your underarms. Hold the tape measure so it is firm against your body, but not squeezing you. This measurement is your band size. If you get an odd number, round up. Wearing an unlined, non-padded bra (not over your clothes!), run the measuring tape all the way around your back where your band sits, being careful to keep the tape level. It should be as snug as possible without digging. If you don't get a whole number (33 and 1/2 inches), round to the nearest whole number (34 inches), and then use the chart below to find your band size. Note: Inches do not equal size, meaning 34 inches does not equal a size 34 band.

2: Bust measurement

Now measure loosely around the fullest part of your bustline. “Run the measuring tape around your back, just under your shoulder blades, and up around the fullest part of your bust,” says Iserlis. “The tape should just skim the bra in front.” Then (bra math alert!) subtract your band size from your bust measurement. “The difference in inches corresponds to your cup size.” For example, if your bust measures 37 inches, and your band size (not the exact measurement, but the band size you found above) is 34, the difference will be 3. On the chart below, you'll see a 3 is equal to a C cup, meaning your bra size is 34 C.

How about Bra cup size?

Subtract your band size from your bust measurement to find your cup size.

Match the number to this bra size chart to determine your cup size.

1"= A 5"= DD 9"= I 2"= B 6"= DDD & F 10"= J 3"= C 7"= G 11"= K/td> 4"= D 8"= H

Let's say your bust measurement is 51 inches and your band size is 46 inches. 51-46=5, so using the chart below, you are a DD cup. You will want to shop for size 46DD bras.
