Bra Fitting Guide
Our Steps For A Feel Good Fit
Things to remember
Remove Bulky Clothing
Stand in front a mirror wearing a regular bra with minimal padding.
Ensure to keep the tape measure on the same level all round your torso
- Measure snugly around your torso, directly under your bust at your rib cage. Round the number to the nearest whole inch
- If the number is an even number, add four inches. Add five inches for an odd number. This is your underbust/bra band size E.g. If the measurement is 30.2″, when rounded, its 30″. When you add 4, it comes to 34. Your underbust size is 34
- Measure around the fullest part of your bust; the tape measure must not cut into the bust.e.g. 39.4″ Round the number to the nearest whole inch. i.e. 39″ This is your overbust size
- Subtract your underbust size from your overbust size. i.e. 39 – 34 = 5
- If the difference is ……
- 0 = AA Cup Size
- 1 = A Cup Size
- 2 = B Cup Size
- 3 = C Cup Size
- 4 = D Cup Size
- 5 = E Cup Size
- 6 = F Cup Size
- 7 = G Cup Size
The band around your body should be firm but comfortable
When you stand side-on at the mirror, the band should be horizontal around your body and it shouldn’t ride up at the back at all.
We recommend fastening a new bra on its loosest hook so that you can tighten it up as it becomes a little looser when you’ve worn and washed it a few times.
The wires should lie flat against your chest
The wires should sit on your ribcage and not on your breast tissue and shouldn’t slip downwards during the day as you move about or lift away if you raise your arms.
Your boobs should be enclosed in the cups
You should have a smooth line where the fabric at the top of the cup ends and meets your bust. You may need to adjust your boobs into the cups – a bit of a scoop and a jiggle usually does the trick!
You shouldn’t have any ridge or bulging over the top or sides of the cups, even if you are wearing a balconette, plunge or lower cut style.
