How to size

 

Before You Begin

  • Have a measuring tape, pen and paper ready
  • You will also need to be in front of a mirror
  • Wear a non-padded bra that reflects your true shape
  • You’ll need to determine 2 things: your rib band and your cup size. Only 2 measurements!

Band Size Measurement (A)

Place the measuring tape around your back and under your breasts. Check in the mirror to ensure the measuring tape is parallel to the floor along your back as well as under your breasts. The tape should be snug around your body and make sure that you don’t have any fingers underneath the tape. Refer to the chart below to find your band size measurement based on your country.

98 - 102 44 44 100 115
103 - 107 46 46 105 120

Cup Size Measurement (B)

Measure around the fullest part of your breasts, over your nipple area. This is a looser measurement than the band size measurement. Hold the end of the measuring tape at the side of your breast. While holding both ends of the tape with one hand, use your free hand to press the measuring tape in between your breasts to your chest. This will provide a more accurate cup size measurement.
