Whether you’re an A cup or a D+, we’re here to help you to find a style that fits so comfortably.
DOES THE BAND RIDE UP YOUR BACK?
If yes, your bra is either too large or need to be tightened. If it’s too loose after you’ve adjusted the band, it’s time to go down a band size (and possibly up a cup).
DOES YOUR BREASTS SPILL OVER OR BULGE UNDER THE CUP?
If yes, your cups are too small and you need to go up a cup size.
DO THE CUPS PUCKER OR GAP?
If your breasts don’t fill out the cups, your bra is too large.
DOES THE WIRE POKE AND PROD?
If so, you’re wearing a cup size that’s too small.
DO YOUR STRAP SLIP AND SLIDE?
If you’ve adjusted your straps and they still fall off, either the band it too big or your bra has lost it’s elasticity. If you have slopped shoulders, opt for a racerback bra or a style with convertible straps.
DO YOUR STRAPS DIG INTO YOUR SHOULDERS?
If so, try loosening the straps. If that doesn’t solve the problem, it’s likely the cups are too small and you need to go u p a cup size.
The STEP-BY-STEP guide to measure your band and cup size
To find your correct bra size by measuring yourself is simple but you need few things before you start:
A soft measuring tape
Your best fitting bra, least padded
Stand in front of the mirror wearing your best fitting least padded bra and use a soft measuring tape to measure your band size:
Wrap the measuring tape around your back just below your shoulder blades and just under your bust.
Make sure the measuring tape is parallel to the floor. Pull the tape measure to tightest against your ribcage.
Take note of the measurement. If your measurement is an odd number, add 1, if it’s even number, add 2→ Example: 35 inches, rounds up to 36
→ Example: 32 inches, rounds up to 34
TIP: Because bra bands tend to stretch overtime, your bra should fit firmly om the last hook when new.
Double-check this number by measuring under your armpits and across the top of your bust. This number should be the same as your band measurement.
Next, measure your bust.
Slide your measuring tape up your back, across your shoulder blades and across the fullest part of your bust
Make sure the measuring tape is still parallel to the floor and hold the tape as loosely as possible
Take note of that measurement
Let’s do some math!
Your band measurement is what you measured +1 (odd measurements) or +2 (even measurements)
For every inch difference between your band size and your bust size you will increase your cup size→ Example : 34 inch band and a 39 inch bust (5 inch difference) will be a 34DD
→ Example : 31 inch band measurement will be round up a 32 and 35 inch bust (3 inch difference) will get you to size 32C
