Unlined black lace underwire bra. *this bra does not have a pocket for breastforms.
Step 1: Work out your band size.
Measure your chest circumference approximately two inches below the nipples. Round the measurement to the nearest whole number of inches. Then, add an additional 4 inches if you got an even number. Add an additional 5 inches if it was an odd number. This is your bra band size.
Example: If you measured 32.25″, you would round to 32″ and add 4 more inches to get 36″. If you measured 34.75″, you would round to 35″ and add 5 more inches to get 40″.
Please Note: This method is used for Bras manufactured in the US, and will differ for Bras made elsewhere.
Why is this so confusing? Bra sizing was originally measured across the fullest part of the breast. Shortly after WWII, the whole world switched to measuring just beneath the breast. However, USA bra manufactures refused to adjust their bra sizing, so we have to add 4 or 5 inches.
Step 2: Work out your desired cup size.
B cup looks natural on a slim figure and won’t attract too much attention.
C or D cup looks attractive and balanced on average body types.
DD or larger tends to look best on larger, curvy figures.
This is a general guide only, and breast form size is a personal preference.
