FIRST, MEASURE YOUR RIBCAGE

A perfect fitting band should lay flat across your back, parallel to the floor. Grab a measuring tape and make sure you’re wearing a well-fitting, non-padded bra.

Wrap the measuring tape snugly around your rib cage, just under your bust. If you are wearing an underwire bra, tuck the tape under the wire.

Make sure the tape measure is flat against your ribcage and is parallel to the floor all the way around.

Exhale and take your measurement, ensuring your fingers are not under the measuring tape.

Use the chart below to

find your band size.

THEN, MEASURE YOUR BUST

Your breasts should fill your cups without spilling over or gapping – and when wearing an underwire, it shouldn’t poke you.

Wrap the measuring tape loosely around the widest part of your bust.

Make sure the tape measure is flat against you and parallel to the floor all the way around.

Inhale and take your measurement, ensuring your fingers are not under the measuring tape.

Subtract your band size from your bust measurement. Every inch difference equals one cup size (so if you are a 34 band size and have a 38” bust measurement, 38-34 = 4 inches, a D cup).
