The most important thing to note about this chart is that these numbers are estimate only. No universal formula exists for calculating sizes 100% accurately.
Every womans body is truly unique, this guide will help you determine an approximate size after you take your measurements.
Bras vary based on the fabric used, shape of cups and how much stretch it has.
Your bras underbust supports so should be firm. Remeber if you go up a back size go down a cup size. If you go up a cup size, then go down a back size.
The centre panel should always lie flat, though not always possible. Try going up a cup size.
Bra straps should rest on top of your shoulder without digging in.
Cup and underwire
The cups and wire combined create a secondary support for your bra after the underbust.
The cups are designed to encompass your breast tissue and give you the shape, protection, lift you want.
|Under Bust Measurement||68-72||73-77||78-82||83-87||88-92||93-97||98-102|

MEASUREMENTS FOR BRA SIZING
STEP 1. Measure Underbust
Measure around your rib cage. Use this measurement to measure your body size eg. 78 cm size 14.
STEP 2. Measure Bust
Measure around the fullest part of your bust.
Use this measurement from the table for your body size to select your cup size eg. 96 cm = C-cup.
Take measurements whilst wearing a suitable bra but without outer garments.
Measure yourself holding the tape measure firmly around you.
Make no extra allowances.
If you are in between sizes we suggest you order the larger size
|If the underband is riding up, the back size is too big. You will need to go up a cup size and down a back size. Eg. 10E to 8F.||Underband is not riding up and is firm, but not uncomfortable.|
|If the underband is uncomfortably tight, and the hook & eye is straining, then the back size is too small. You will need to go up a back size but down a cup size. Eg.10E to 12DD.||If the underband is riding up, the back size is too big.|
