A “C” cup size typically corresponds to a bust measurement that is 3 inches larger than the band size, while a “D” cup size is 4 inches larger. For example, if your band measurement is 32 inches and your bust measurement is 35 inches, you would likely be a C cup. If your bust measurement is 36 inches, you would most likely wear a D cup.

It’s important to note that these measurements are just a starting point and may vary depending on individual body shapes and bra styles. Therefore, it’s essential to come in for a professional fitting at least once per year or whenever you experience any changes in weight or body shape. Our expert fitters can take precise measurements and recommend specific styles that will best suit your unique proportions.

One common misconception about bra sizing is that the letter represents breast size alone. In reality, it’s also crucial to consider the band size when finding the perfect fit. The combination of both band and cup sizes determines the overall fit of the bra.

A less-known fact about bra sizing is that different brands might have slightly different interpretations of cup sizes due to variations in design and materials used. Understanding this can be useful when shopping for bras from various manufacturers as it allows you to make more informed choices based on how their specific sizing aligns with your individual needs.

Now that you have an understanding of how bra sizes are determined, I highly recommend scheduling a fitting appointment so we can ensure you find the perfect fit for ultimate comfort and support.
