How to get the right fitting bra!

What Bra Size Are You?
Here is how to measure to get the best fit

Though many countries use the metric system (cm) to measure things typically measured in the customary system (in), the majority of these nations still use inches to determine the under-band size of the bra itself.

There are several methods which may be used to provide an approximate size by taking measurements. However, bra sizing systems differ widely between countries, between manufacturers, and between brands and designs, which can create many problems >Also: NEVER assume your swim wear size based on your lingerie sizing.

Step 1: Band Size –(example: 32, 34, 36, 38) Wrap your measuring tape snugly around your rib cage. The measurement needs to be taken from directly under the bust. If the measurement is an even number, add 4 inches or if it is an odd number, add 5 inches. Example: if your rib cage measured at 30`` + 4 = 34 band size

Step 2: Cup Size – (example: A, B, C and so on) Measure loosely around the fullest part of you bust. Then subtract the cup size from the band size. Example: if your bust measurement is 36``, you wear a B cup.

See Size Chart:

Difference - Cup Size Is

0 - AA

1 - A

2 - B

3 - C

4 - D

5 - DD

and so on…

I tried my best to find ones that would relate to everyone around the world. Here is link to a site that might help if the above directions do not: European sizes (English, French and Italian)

Or you can always go to a search engine and look up how to measure your bra size. >One of the resources I used for bra information was Wikipedia

If you are a non-believer in bras I am sorry if I offended you in any way!
