The traditional method of using a tape measure & bra size chart to find your perfect bra size is outdated so we've put together the below guide to help find your perfect size and fit!
Check your current Bra fit
Fasten the bra on the outermost hook-and-eye position. This will allow the bra to be tightened as it stretches from natural wash and wear, extending the life of your bra.
The back band should sit flush against your back and parallel to your waist. The band should feel supportive but not too tight: you should be able to slip two fingers comfortable beneath the back band.
As a final check, raise your hands above your head. The bra shouldn’t ride up and should stay comfortably in position.
Adjust the shoulder straps so the back band of the bra sits in a straight line parallel with your waist.
The straps should sit comfortably on your shoulders, without digging in too much or slipping off.
To check the fit, you should be able to fit two fingers under the shoulder strap and slide them down to the back band of the bra.
Your breasts should sit fully inside the cups of the bra. Lean forward and use your opposite hand to pull yourself into the bra by lifting your breast diagonally across the chest.
The side of the underwire should not sit directly on the breast tissue. Check the cup at the armhole and neckline: it should not be cutting into the bust or gaping away from the body.
If the bra has an underwire, you should not be able to feel the wire at all.
Try going up a cup size or opt for a different bra style with more coverage.
If you’ve tried the outermost hook and eye setting, try going up a band size.
The cup volume is too big. Go down a cup size.
If clipped on the innermost hook and eye, try going down a band size but up a cup size.
Check our Sister Cup Size Chart below for size options.
If one breast is larger than the other, always fit your bra for the larger breast.
Sister Cup Sizing
Check our easy conversion chart below to see how the ‘sister cup’ system is used in bra sizing.
If the cup of a 16E is your ideal fit but feels tight in the band, switch to an 18DD to get the right combination of band circumference and cup volume.
A size 16E cup has the same cup volume as a size 18DD. The difference between these two sizes is entirely in the band.
