Tips for Measuring Your Bra Size

Knowing how to measure bra size is essential to feeling comfortable in your intimates and getting intimate in your comfort zones. Most brassiere manufacturers try to keep sizing simple by using two standard measurements: the band size and the cup size. Both are vital, however, both can change at any given time.

The band size measurement is used to determine the rib cage total circumference. It is generally taken just under the breast, around the rib cage. As for the cup size, it is determined by the measurement of the breast’s total volume.  it is usually taken across the nipple or at the largest point of the breasts. Simply look up both measurements on the bra chart to find your perfect bra size. .

When taking the measurements, be sure to stand upright, don’t hold your breath. For instance, If your under-the- bust measurement  is between 83 -87 cm, then the US size 38 is your ideal band size. And if your over-the-breasts measurement is between 108-110 cm across the  breasts, then your perfect  bra cup would be a US size D. Thus, your bra size will read 38D on its tag.

HACK: If your measurements land between inches, just round up to the next number or letter. 

Things to Remember

Remember the key to finding your perfect bra is to properly measure your bra size. Furthermore some women like to wear coordinated pieces to accentuate their curvy figures therefore, they buy matching bras and panty sets.  Either way, it is important to remember that your bra must feel comfortable throughout the day - no slipping, digging, riding, or pinching. 

If the cups are too small you may want to choose the next bigger cup size or band size. For full-figured women, that usually means a double letter on the tag. So, if you typically wear a 38D then try a 38DD or 38E from the Fit Au Max Collection DDD to start. If that doesn’t work, up the band size or consult Fit Au Max Lingerie for a free bra sizing consultation section.
