Bra Fitting Tips

Bra Fitting

There are great differences in the shape, spacing and size of women's breasts. This is not an exact science, so experiment to find the right combination of size and style for you.

Bra Size (Underband)

1. Place the tape fabric measure around your rib cage under the bust, it should be firm but comfortable.

Cup Size (Full bust)

2. Measure the bust at its fullest part, ensure the tape is horizontal and not too tight or your cup size will be inaccurate.

Find your Underband size in step 1, then look across at step 2 to find your cup size.
