How to Measure

Finding out your correct bra size doesn’t need to be a daunting task.  By following the two steps below you can be well on your way to confidently wearing your correct size. All you need is a soft measuring tape and a mirror.

When measuring your bra size, we advise you to wear a soft-cup underwire bra to ensure you get a true measurement.

A few things to keep in mind while measuring:

    • Have a relaxed stance as the measurement will change if your torso, back or shoulders are tense.
    • Ensure the measuring tape is not twisted.
    • Wrap the measuring tape firmly around the area you are measuring.

To measure the band size:

Wrap the tape measure around your ribcage (directly underneath your bust) and record the measurement in centimetres or inches.

Using your band measurement result, please refer to the chart below for your band size:


To measure the cup size:

Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust and record the measurement in centimetres or inches. To obtain your cup size indicator, you need to subtract the band measurement from the cup measurement.  The difference in inches will be the basis of your cup size.

Please see the chart below for your cup size:

Bra size alternatives

When moving up or down in the bra’s band it is important to understand that the cup size must also change. As the band of the bra increases so does the cup. Therefore, when selecting a larger size band, you must select a smaller cup size.  For example; if you usually wear a 10C and you are finding the size 10 is too small, your new size would be 12B. This will ensure the cup is the same size but the back is larger.
