What’s the right size lingerie for me?
Lingerie can come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s often difficult to get the perfect size, especially for your top half. Approximately 80% of women wear the wrong bra size.
To work out your cup and chest size, it’s helpful to get measured. However, if you don’t fancy going into a shop, this is quite easy to do alone.
To measure your bra size, firstly, grab a tape measure. Measure around the bottom of your bra, just underneath your bust to get the chest size in inches. Round this to the nearest full number. If the number is even, add four inches, if it’s odd, add five inches. For example, if you measured 30 inches, your chest size should be 34 inches.
To measure your cup size, wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Take the number and subtract your chest measurement. This should leave you with a number between 1 and 15. Each number going up is a different cup size. For example, 1 is A cup, 2 is B cup and so on. Once you get passed number 4, the doubles start, so 4 is D, 5 is DD, 6 is E and 7 is EE cup.
