How to Measure for a Bra
    In front of a mirror use a measuring
    tape to measure your breasts.

    1.  Measure your rib cage directly
    under your bust and add 5.  If you get
    an odd # add 1 to even it.  Write this
    number down.

    2.  Measure around your breast at the
    fullest part. Write this number down.

    If band size   = cup size you are an
    AA; 1” bigger then band size is an A;  
    2” =B, 3” =C, 4” = D.

Bra Sizes
  • It is not always easy to
    find the  right bra.  Your
    bra size combines a
    number and a letter.  For
    example, you may be a
    32 AA.  

  • The number refers to the
    size of your rib cage (30,
    32, 34, 36, 38, 40, etc.).  
    This is called the band
    or body size.

  • The letter refers to the
    size of the Breast or cup
    size (AAA, AA, A, B, C,
    D, etc). It is called the
    cup size.
