How to Measure Bra Size
Bra fit information
80% of women wear the wrong bra size
Are you one of them?
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.
Find your perfect fit
Bra sizing in two easy steps
Step 1: Measure
your 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
your cup size
Take a loose measurement over the fullest part of your bust, keeping tape level around your body. Round to the nearest inch.
Find your perfect style
Learn proper bra care
Prolong the life of your bras
by following some simple tips.
- 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 flat is best.
- Keep like colors together in washing.
- Wash your bra after each use to help reduce discoloring.
