Yes, bra size is typically measured in inches. To find your band size, you would measure around your ribcage just under your bust using a soft tape measure. This measurement will give you the number for your band size, such as 32 inches. Then, to determine your cup size, you would measure around the fullest part of your bust and subtract the band measurement from this to get the difference in inches. A 1-inch difference would be an A cup, 2 inches a B cup, 3 inches a C cup, and so on.

It’s important to note that while these measurements are helpful in determining a starting point for finding the right bra size, it’s also crucial to consider factors such as breast shape and firmness when trying on different bras. Bra sizes can vary between brands and styles, so it’s best to try on multiple sizes within a similar range to find the most comfortable fit.

One less-known fact about measuring bra size is that many people may not realize that wearing an ill-fitting bra can cause discomfort and even long-term health issues such as back pain or poor posture. Understanding how proper measurements work can help prevent these issues and ensure overall comfort and support.
