To measure for a Wonderbra bra size, you will need to start by measuring your band size. To do this, use a soft measuring tape and wrap it snugly around your ribcage just below your bust. Make sure the tape is parallel to the floor and take note of the measurement in inches. Next, measure around the fullest part of your bust while wearing a non-padded bra, ensuring that the measuring tape is also parallel to the floor. Take note of this measurement as well.
Once you have these measurements, subtract your band size from your bust measurement to find your cup size. For example, if your band measurement is 32 inches and your bust measurement is 36 inches, the difference would be 4 inches which correlates to a D cup size. Keep in mind that each inch difference corresponds with a different cup size (A=1 inch, B=2 inches, C=3 inches etc.).
One common misconception when measuring for a Wonderbra bra size is thinking that all bras are sized equally across different brands or styles. In reality, sizes can vary greatly depending on factors such as fabric type and style of bra (i.e. push-up vs full coverage). It’s important to always measure yourself for each specific style and brand of bra.
A less-known fact about finding the right Wonderbra bra size is that our bodies are constantly changing due to factors such as weight fluctuations or hormonal changes. This means that getting measured regularly – at least once every six months – will ensure you always have the perfect fit and support from your Wonderbra.
