Finding your bra size used to take time and effort. Enter your measurements below and let us do the work for you!

Find your band size

Wear your favorite unpadded bra (no sports bras or minimizers, please), and take a snug measurement around your ribcage in inches, directly under your bust and level all around.

Type in your band size. If you got an odd number, round up to the next whole number (or our calculator will round up for you).

Measure Your Bust Size

Take a loose measurement in inches over the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape level around your body. Ensure that the tape isn’t too tight by taking a deep breath in and out.

Type in your bust size. If needed, round up to the nearest inch (or our calculator will round up for you).

Bra Sizing Example

If you want to calculate your bra size on your own, here’s a handy example: Your bust measurement is 48 inches, and your band size is 42 inches: 48 – 42 = 6. Using the chart above, you are a DDD cup (also known as a F cup), and you will want to shop for size 42DDD or 42F bras.

Get the Perfect Fitting Bra

How will you know when you’ve found the perfect bra size?

Like falling in love, when it happens, you’ll know. Your breasts will be where you want them to be and look how you want them to look. You should feel lifted and supported, with zero pain. You know how when something doesn’t feel quite right, it’s all you can think about? This is the opposite of that. When the fit is fab, you won’t think about your bra at all. You’ll be contained, comfortable, confident and in control of your day. The perfect fitting bra frees you up to handle anything; it lets you do you.

That’s why we never want you to settle for “good enough” again. Every time you put on a bra, check for the Fit 5, our favorite way of gauging whether it’s the best fit for you.

A Word About Bra Sizing

We get that bra size can be confusing, so think of it like jeans shopping. You don’t always wear the same size pants, and you would never assume a pair fits without trying it on first. The same is true for finding your bra size! Just as getting the perfect fit in denim depends on the brand, cut, style and rise, one bra style in one size might feel great; another, not so much

Why You Should Have a Professional Bra Fitting

Our bodies are constantly changing, we recommend getting fitted every six months. We often find women are wearing too big of a band size and too small of a bra cup size. Our trained experts know how to quickly and easily get you into the best fitting bra.
