The standard sizing for bra sizes are typically based on the combination of band size and cup size. The band size is measured around the rib cage just below the bust, while the cup size is determined by measuring across the fullest part of the bust and then subtracting the band measurement from it. In our store, we use European sizing system which includes band sizes ranging from 65 to 100 and cup sizes ranging from A to H. For example, a 70C indicates a band size of 70 with a C cup.

It’s important to note that not all brands or styles follow this exact sizing chart, so I always recommend trying on different styles and brands to ensure the perfect fit for each individual body type. Our staff are trained in bra fitting techniques and can assist you in finding your correct size, as well as recommending specific styles that may work best for your shape and needs. Once you have found your correct size, it’s also important to keep in mind that different fabrics may fit differently, so trying on various bras within your size range is crucial.

One common misconception about bra sizing is that once you find your “size”, it will fit perfectly in every style or brand. The truth is that each style or brand may fit slightly differently due to variations in design and fabric. It’s essential to be open-minded when shopping for bras and focus on how they feel rather than getting fixated on a specific number or letter.

A less-known fact about bra sizing is that many women actually wear the wrong bra size without even realizing it. This can lead to discomfort, poor support, and an unflattering silhouette. Knowing how to properly measure yourself for a bra as well as understanding how different styles should fit can make a huge difference in comfort and confidence. The next step would be experimenting with different styles within your correct sizing range until you find what works best for you.
