Understanding Bra Sizes If you just don`t understand all the numbers in getting a bra that fits then here are some tips to help you. Follow these steps to ensure you are shopping for a bra in the correct size..

1st Step:
Measure Under the Bustline
Measure underneath the bustline and make sure to measure tightly. Also, make sure the tape is straight across the back. If you come up with a half measurement, like 32 1/2, round UP to 33”. If you measure between 32 and 32 1/2, round DOWN. (In general, the rule of thumb for all measuring is: less than 1/2”, round DOWN, more than a 1/2”, round UP.)
Write this measurement Down. This is Measurement 1


2nd Step:
Calculate Your Cup Size
If MEASUREMENT 1 is UNDER 33 inches, add 5 inches. If this number is odd, round up to the next EVEN number. If MEASUREMENT 1 is over 33 inches, add 3 inches. If this number is odd, round up to the next EVEN number. Write this EVEN number down. This is your BAND SIZE.


3rd Step:
Calculate Your Size
First, subract MEASUREMENT 1 from MEASUREMENT 2. Then consult the following chart to find your CUP SIZE.Subract MEASUREMENT 1 from MEASUREMENT 2. If MEASUREMENT 2 Is: Your
CUP SIZE is:

0” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------AA
1” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------A
2” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------B
3” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------C
4” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------D
5” larger than MEASUREMENT 1--------------------DD


Ever wonder why DD is bigger than D but AA is smaller than A?

Wow nikki, that was a great response!

I went and got properly measured and it makes a huge difference to how you feel about your boobs and how they sit...

HAHA!! its not like it is a secret, I just googled "how to measure correct bra size". Or you can just go to a store and get a proper bra fitting. Nothing worse than an uncomfortable bra!

But can anyone answer why there is AA and DD? Why no CC or BB? LOL!!

well no matter what you "measure" as different styles and brands of bras fit different. I have bras in 3 different cup sizes and they all fit because of that.
