To start we need to take some measurements.

You will need: 

  • a measuring tape,

  • a pen or pencil

  • and a piece of paper

Great alternates are to use your IPAD or mobile phone to capture your measurements.

There are two places to measure yourself for your bra.  It's super important to get this right. Otherwise, you will have your cup half full, this means you need a different bra.  So getting this right is vital to ensure your bra fits you properly.

A. Measure across your chest and around your back. This will give you your cup size.


B. Measure your band size you will need to measure across your upper ribs just under your breasts and around your back. This will give you your band size.


Note: Many women don't take the time to check. I know for a long time I didn't bother. The trouble is you wear the same bra for so long that it stretches. Leaving you with the idea that your bra size hasn't changed. When in fact your bra size has changed and then when you order a new one from the same brand in the same style it isn't as comfortable as the one you were wearing before. 

Take the time to measure. Check the measurement charts of the brand you are purchasing from. Just in case they are different.  Because that happens too.
