How to Measure Your Bra Size

Getting on with your busy schedule while wearing an ill-fitting bra may not sound like a big deal. However, such long-term failure to support your breasts can easily lead to chest, shoulder, and neck injuries, in addition to constant discomfort and lousy appearance. Here are some simple tips on how to buy a bra that fits by finding your perfect bra size.
  1. Find your Band Size by measuring around your rib cage, ensuring the tape measure is loose enough to slip two fingers underneath and tight enough not to fall. If the reading is an even number, add two inches, and if it’s an odd number, add three inches to account for the stretching of the bra’s elastic band.
  2. Find your Bust Size by measuring around the fullest area of your breasts, holding the tape measure as you did in the previous step. The fullest cross-section of your chest is generally located near the nipple.
  3. Find your Cup Size by subtracting your Band Size from Bust Size. If the difference is zero, your cup size is AA. If the difference is one, the cup size is A; If the difference is two, your cup size is B, and so on. For every additional inch, your cup size increases by one size.
  4. Now that you know your ideal Cup Size, you can use it to refer to size charts, including ThirdLove’s bra size chart, which helps you find your Cup Size to the nearest half-size.
