How to measure bra size

A great-fitting bra is essential to ensure your clothes fit properly, are comfortable, and look their best. Follow these steps to select the correct size of your new bra.

WHAT IS RIGHT BRA SIZE FOR YOU?

Step 0 (optional): Ask your partner to perform steps 1 and 3. Steps 2 and 4 do rather yourself or control it precisely! 

Step 1: Measure your band. Wear a lightly lined (non-push-up) bra so your breasts are as close to natural as possible. Wrap a measuring tape directly under your breasts. Make sure it’s directly parallel with the bottom of the bra band.

Step 2: Subtract 2-3 cm from the measured number and find out the optimal band.

Step 3: Measure your bust. Place the tape at the fullest part of your bust. Make sure it’s parallel to your band again. 

Step 4: Compare the measured values with the size table below and find out the right size of your bra

BAND SIZE

  • The band size of the bra should not be loose, but slightly elastically stretched. When choosing, it is necessary to take into account the elasticity of the material and gradual loosening.
  • We recommend choosing a bra band size a few centimeters lower than you measure.
  • Most of the weight of the breast should be borne by the band, not the straps! If the weight of the breast "hangs" on the straps, the shoulders and spine are loaded, which can lead to back and head pain.
  • The back of the bra should not slide up.
  • When pulling the bra away from your back, there should be room for about two fingers. More space means the selected band size is too large.
  • For bras with hook fastening, we choose a size that will fit perfectly on the loosest hook (largest circumference). When gradually releasing the material, you have the option of closing the bra to a tighter circumference.

BRA Straps

  • Straps are not the main thing that holds your bust!
  • The straps have only a supporting function to the bra.
  • Properly selected bra circumference will ensure that the straps do not cut into the shoulders.

BRA CUPS

  • Many women try to cram their breasts into smaller cups in the hopes of creating a sexy push-up effect. Usually, however, it turns out that their breasts just overflow from the cups and the ugly deforms.
  • A properly chosen cup size naturally copies the breast.
  • It can be seen from the size charts that the size of the cups increases/decreases according to the band size. Cup C is thus smaller for size 80 than for size 85. This must be kept in mind when choosing a bra. If the size of the cups for the bra 85/C will fit you, but the fastening will be too loose, then it is necessary to choose size 80, where you must reach size 80/E to maintain the same size of cups.
