FIND YOUR BRA SIZE
We are working with some amazing designers. Unfortunately, there is no standard size chart. However, there are a few simple steps you can take to help you figure out what size would work best for you. Use the information below to help you find your correct size. If you need any assistance please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
STEP ONE: Find The Band Size
Using a cloth measuring tape, measure under the bust and across your ribcage. Make sure to keep your measuring tape straight around the back to front. The tape should be snug, not tight. If you get an odd number or half number, round up to the next whole number to get your band size. Whatever number you get here, in almost all cases will need to be rounded up to the nearest even number. So if the measurement is 33 than you would just round up to 34.
STEP TWO: Cup Size
This is where it gets tricky...if you already have a bra on and everything is in the cup and it’s comfortable, you’re done. [Do not have on a padded bra during this step.] If not, then let’s continue. Using a cloth tape, measure across your nipples at the widest part of your breasts. If the number falls betweens two numbers, then round up to the next.
STEP THREE: Calculate Bra Size
Now take your band number and subtract it from the breast size. The difference is the number we use to get your "cup" size. [ex. Heres the math: Breast (42) - Band (34) = Cup Size (8"). Every inch equals a cup. In this example, 8" is an H cup.
My bra doesn’t fit…
Here are some common problems and solutions.
PROBLEM: THE BAND RIDES UP IN THE BACK
Reason: The band is too big
Solution: You need a smaller band
PROBLEM: UNDERWIRE IS DIGGING IN MY ARMPIT
Reason: Your cup is too small, the underwire should encase the entire breast, not dig into it
Solution: You need a bra with a bigger band and/or a bigger cup
PROBLEM: INDENTS IN THE SHOULDER FROM THE STRAPS
Explanation: Your bra is too big in the back and not big enough in the cup; this is causing you to pull the straps up too tight for support
Solution: You need a bra that is smaller in the back and bigger in the cup
PROBLEM: BREAST ARE FALLING OUT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP
Explanation: The band of your bra is too big and the cup may be too small
Solution: You need a bra which is smaller in the back and bigger in the cup
PROBLEM: BUMPY SILHOUETTE UNDER CLOTHES
Explanation: The cup encasing the breast is too small and so causes the breasts to overspill
Solution: You need to increase your cup size until you have a smooth silhouette
PROBLEM: THE CUPS ARE PUCKERING OR WRINKLING
Explanation: You're not properly filling out the cup, because the band and/or the cup size is too large
Solution: You need a bra with a smaller back and/or cup size
