How to Measure for a Bra Size?

As women, we all know the importance of how our bras fit. Personally, I went to Lane Bryant and had them measure me for a bra. To measure at home put a non-padded bra on. The first measurement you will take is under your bust. Place the measuring tape around you and pull snug, then let all your air out, take the measurement and write it down. Round the measurement to the nearest whole number. Next, take the measuring tape and measure the fullest part of your bust to get your cup size. Remember, round to whole number. Now for the band size, the first measurement we took, if the number is even add 4. If the number is odd add 5. For example, 30′ is the measurement rounded so add 4. So your band size is 34 (30 + 4 = 34′). Now, for the cup size take the second measurement from the band size. For example, the second number is 40′ – 34′ (band size) = 6′. Your cup size would be DDD of F. Here is the breakdown of the cup sizes: 0′ to 1/2′ = AA, 1/2′ to 1′ = A, 2′ = B, 3′ = C, 4′ = D, 5′ = DD or E, 6′ = DDD of F, 7′ = G and so on.
