FIGURE OUT YOUR BRA SIZE
 

We at strapsandstrings.com believe that the key to a beautiful bra underpinning is the correct size. The best way to assess it is to try on different styles and find the one that flatters your shape the best. We do realize that it is not an easy task to determine your bra size with a measuring tape. Plus the brands do show variations from each other in the sizes department. We understand what goes through your mind in this dilemma and so present to you a rough guide to helpyou know your right bra size. Please note that this is just a helpful 'how to' guide only and the results may vary with different shapes and styles.

Our experienced team of lingerie consultants will be glad to guide and help you in selecting the right bra. So, call them at

Bra size is divided between measuring up your rib cage and that of your breasts from their fullest.

 
 
Measuring Your Under-bust Size
 
• Under-bust size measurement is the rib cage measurement and not the size of the cup.
• It is always referred to in numbers like 32, 34, 36 and so on.
• Place a soft measuring tape around your rib cage directly under the bust.
• Make sure the tape is level front and back (you can use a mirror to check). Also, it should be held tight       with no space between the two edges (remember, that a bra stretches when worn).
• You can check your size using the table below. For example, underband measurement on  the tape is   34"= bra band size 38. If you fall in-between an inch, then you should opt for the next bigger size.

Measuring Your Cup Size
 
• For measuring your over-bust or cup size, take the tape around the bust at the fullest point.
• Hold the tape tight at the back but it should not be too tight in the front. This will help you establish your   correct cup size i.e. A, B, C, D or DD. Check yours from the table below.
• Also, cup sizes vary with the band sizes. So, the cup size of a 32B will not be the same as that of a   34B.

There is another very simple way of arriving at your correct bra size. If your new band size has changed then your cup size would have too. So, if you have gone down 2 band sizes you will go up two cup sizes. For instance, if you were previously 38B and you are now wearing 34 your cup size will now be D cup - highlighted below.
