STEP 1: BAND SIZE
under your arms, high on your back, across the top of your chest. If
this measurement is an even number, this is your band size. If an odd number, add 1″ to resolve your band size.
STEP 2: CUP SIZE
loosely around the fullest a part of your bust. Next, subtract your band
measurement from your bust measurement; each and every inch represents a cup size.
For example: if your band measurement is 34″ and your bust measurement
is 36″, the difference between these measurements is two inches, and
you’d wear a B-cup.

There are two how one can measure your band size. The most efficient bet is to do it both how one can see if you get a consistent measurement.
Bring the measuring tape around your back to the front, keeping it
under the arms and bringing it up across to the middle of your chest
(see image). If you get an peculiar number, round up to the next even number
to get your band size.
2. Measure across the bottom of your band, directly under the bust and
across your ribcage. You’ll want to keep your measuring tape straight
around the back to front. Again, if you get an peculiar number, round up to
the next even number to get your band size.
This is where it gets tricky- if you have already got a bra and can talk us
through how it’s fitting, we might be better off stopping here- we will be able to
let you troubleshoot your fit. You’ll also Check Your Fit and see our
Bra Fit Q&A for help assessing your fit. Step one (above) will
let us know if you might be in the mistaken band size. This one becomes much
more subjective. Here’s how to do it:
Measure loosely around the fullest a part of your bust, with the tape
straight across and around your back, bringing it to the front.
2. Subtract your band measurement (from step 1) from this bust
measurement. The difference calculates your bra size- each and every inch
represents a cup size. For example, if you measure a 34 inch band size,
and a 36 inch cup size, the difference is 2: which would indicate a B
About bra sizing: Size conversions
Many of our beautiful bras are from designers in the United Kingdom and Europe. If
you wear a cup size DD or above, you will have to check your bra’s style
description carefully to see whether it is a UK or European size (We will
tell you that at the bottom of the list of style details on the product
detail page). If the style comes in European or UK sizing, you are going to want
to find your equivalent in the chart below, and make a selection that size on the
