Knowing how to accurately determine your size can help with finding a bralette that suits you best. At Our Bralette Club, we usually follow the European/Asia sizing guide, but if you're unsure of your size, it's always good to have a measuring tape handy.
1. Obtaining your underbust measurement
Using a measuring tape, measure (in CM) one round right under the curve of your breasts, where the band of your bra/bralette usually sits.
2. Obtaining your overbust measurement
Using a measuring tape, measure (in CM) one round at the fullest part of your chest. This is usually in the vertical center of your breast.
You can wear a lightly padded bra or bralette when taking your measurements.
Your size is made up of 2 elements, the BAND SIZE and the CUP size. Now that you have your measurements, let's start calculating...
Simply take the underbust measurement you obtained in Step 1 and round it off to the nearest multiple of 5.
If your underbust measurement is 75, your band size is 75.
If your underbust measurement is 82, your band size is 80.
If your underbust measurement is 87, your band size is 85.
Use your overbust measurement to minus your underbust measurement. Then search for the corresponding cup size in the list below.
A = 7 to 10 cm difference
B= 11 to 13 cm difference
C = 14 to 16 cm difference
D = 17 to 19 cm difference
E= 20 to 22 cm difference
F = 23 to 24 cm difference
G = 25 to 26 cm difference
If your underbust measurement is 87 and your overbust measurement is 102,
Your BAND SIZE will be 85
Your CUP SIZE will be (102-85=17) D
put together, your size is an 85D !
