80% of women wear the wrong bra size.
Are you one of them?

Step 1: Measure Band Size

Take a snug measurement around your rib cage, directly under your bust and level around your body. Round to the nearest inch.

Step 2: Measure Cup Size

Take a loose measurement over the fullest part of your bust keeping tape level around your body. Round to the nearest inch.

  • Hand wash your bras, especially those that contain an underwire. If you do use a washing machine, select a "delicate" or "hand wash" cycle and fasten the clasps to prevent snagging.
  • Use a mild detergent and lukewarm water. Avoid extreme heat or highly concentrated detergents.
  • Do not put your bra in the dryer. Line drying is best.
  • Keep like colors together in washing.
  • Wash your bra after each use to help reduce discoloring.

You might be wearing the
wrong bra size if:

  • the cups wrinkle.
  • you spill over the top or side of the cups.
  • the center of the bra doesn't rest flat against your breastbone.
  • the band rides up your back – if you can fit more than two fingers between the band and your back, it's too loose.

Designed with special features like padded liners, cups that allow for discreet feeding and additional shoulder padding, nursing bras provide extra support and comfort as the bust grows and ribcage expands during pregnancy.
