My daughter was a Bra Expert (her actual title) at Victoria’s Secret. She was taught this method there, and made countless women happy as they finally had the right bra size and fit. Wearing the right bra size can mean all the difference in your comfort and confidence. It’s something women are never really taught, but it’s valuable knowledge. What is your correct bra size? THE RIGHT BRA SIZE? Find out how to do it right for a fantastic fit.
For the most accuracy, do this in privacy. Remove any bulky clothing before you measure. This can be done with your bra on or off, as long as the bra you are wearing when measuring is not a padded one. Measure above your bust line, directly under your arm pits. Many women have been taught to measure around the rib cage, this often leads to inaccurate measurements and a poor fit. Instead, take your underarm measurement and add 4″ if it was an even number, add 5″ if it was an odd number. For example, if you measure 36 add as follows: 36 + 4 = 40. Your size is 40. Next, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Let’s say it’s 43″. Subtract your size from your bust measurement. Example: 43″ – 40″ = 3. The resulting number, 3, will tell you your cup size. Cup sizes are as follows: 0=AA, 1=A, 2=B, 3=C….and so on. In our example, this woman has a difference of 3, so she is a C cup. Her correct bra size is 40C, TA-DA!
