Measuring is just one small step to finding the right size bra. These numbers give us a starting point and then we can see how it fits and feels or if we have to adjust the band size, the cup size, or the style of bra.
When you are in store, we take 2 measurements - 1 around the ribcage and one around the bust. We then have different band sizes and different cup sizes to play with. Trying to get a bra measurement by yourself without the option to try different sizes and see what feels best is difficult. That is why we recommend using this bra calculator website. It takes 6 different measurements to give you a more accurate fit.
