Bra sizes are represented by a combination of a number and a letter, for example 34C. The number represents the band size, which is the measurement around your ribcage just below your bust. The letter represents the cup size, which is determined by the difference between your band size and bust measurement. Cup sizes range from A to K, with each letter representing an increase in bust measurement.

When you are looking at bra sizes, it’s important to consider both the band and cup measurements to ensure the perfect fit. A common misconception is that the larger the number or letter, the bigger the bra size, but this isn’t always true. For example, a 32D has smaller cups than a 36D because they have different band measurements.

One less-known fact about bra sizes is that they can vary between brands and even styles within a brand. This means that finding your perfect fit may require trying on several different sizes and styles to find what works best for you. Knowing this can save time when shopping for bras as it will help you understand why certain styles may fit differently despite having similar sizing.

My recommendation now would be to take note of your current measurements so we can accurately determine your correct bra size today.
