A great-fitting bra is essential to ensure your clothes fit properly, are comfortable and look their best. Here's how to measure for your bra size:

Wrap the tape measure around your chest, just beneath the breasts. This is your BAND SIZE. Example: 38"
Wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your breasts. This is your BUST SIZE. Example: 41"


Subtract the band size from the bust size. Example: 41"-38"=3"
Find the final number below to get your CUP SIZE. Example: 3" = C cup

2" = B cup
3" = C cup
4" = D cup
5" = DD cup
6" = DDD cup
7" = F cup
8" = G cup
9" = H cup
10" = I cup
11" = J cup
12" = K cup

Your BRA SIZE is your band size plus your cup size. Example: 38C

How to measure without a ruler or tape measure?

If you don't have a ruler or tape measure handy, you can try to measure with a standard credit card, which has a width of 3 ⅜ inch or 8.56 cm and a height of 2 ⅛ inch or 5.4 cm.

If you do a lot of online apparel shopping, accurate body measurement using a tape measure is a must. The actual tape you choose doesn’t matter that much. This retractable one is very easy to use, and the fact it uses both CM and IN is extremely helpful.
