FINDING YOUR BAND SIZE
Measurements should be taken while wearing a bra. The measuring tape should be held snug but not tight while measuring. Begin by wearing your best fitting bra – unpadded and not a minimizer or sports bra. Measure around the back under the Arm Pits across top part of bust, which gives you your band size.
E.G. 38″ USA which is equal to Size 16 (Refer chart below)
FINDING YOUR CUP SIZE
Measure around the high point or fullest point of the bustline while wearing a bra.
If you measure 43 Inches subtract this from your band measurement.
Example Band Size e.g. 38″ – 43″ = 5 Inches = DD Cup Size (refer chart below).
