Bra Size Calculator - Measure your Bra Size in 2 easy steps

Bra Size Calculator
Did you know that around 80% Indian women wear ill-fitting bras as they do not know how to measure their bra size properly? A well-fitted bra is not only important for the right look, but also crucial in defining the correct posture and lending the needed support. One of the major reasons behind ill-fitting bras is that most women don’t get their bra size measured. Knowing your correct bra size is the first step towards finding the perfect bra fitting. Thankfully, calculating the br­a size is no rocket science and here we are, to tell you how to measure your bra size. All you need is a measuring tape and a mirror. Also, you should wear a well-fitted non-padded bra.

Here’s how to check bra size using bra size calculator

Bra Band Size Calculator
Step1. Calculate band size
  • The tape should be levelled and snug.
  • Round the number obtained, to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add 4 inches. If it’s odd, add 5.
  • The sum of this calculation is your band size
Example: 25.6 Inches will round off to 26 Band size - 26 + 4 = 30

Bra Cup Size
Step2. Calculate bust size/ cup size
  • Wrap the tape around the fullest part of your bust
  • Make sure it’s not too tight or too loose and without any falls or twists.
  • Round off the number to the nearest whole number.
  • Now, subtract the band size calculated earlier from the bust measurement.
    Example: Bust = 37 inches, Band = 34 inches, 37 – 34 = 3 inches. That’s a 34C!
  • If the difference between band and bust measurement is 1, then your cup size is A. If the difference is 2, then the cup size will be B, so on & so forth.

Some things to remember to select the right bra

Q1. Why do women need to wear a bra? Q2. How to know when you need to start wearing a bra?

Peer pressure shouldn’t force you to start wearing a bra, but these signs should.

Q3. What is the best bra to wear?

A simple T-shirt bra is ideal for everyday use. These bras give you a smooth line underneath your clothes, as they're either seam-free or they have barely-there seams. These bras don’t have any extra embroidery or lace, so they simply vanish under tight fitted tops and dresses.

Q4. What is ABCD in bra sizes?

The letters - like A, B, C, D - stand for cup sizes. The numbers - like 32, 34, 36, 38 they tell you the band size – that's the part of the bra that goes around your torso. For instance, a 34A means that your boobs are an A cup and that your bra is 34 inches around.

Example: 37 inches (bust) – 34 inches (band) = 3 inches. That’s a 34C.

Q5. What is the difference between cup size & bra size?

Your cup size is the difference between your chest size and your bust line measurement while your bra size is your band size with your cup size.

Q6. What are sister sizes?

Everyone has a unique body type, which means sometimes you may not find accurate bra size measurement using the regular bra size chart. Here, you can switch to sister sizes. Basically, these are alternate bra sizes where the cup volume stays the same even though the band size and cup letter change. For instance, if you are a 34 B, there is a good chance that a 32 C or a 36 A will fit you. 32 C will have a shorter band size and 36 A will have a longer one, so you can figure out what fits you better.

Q7. What happens if you wear the wrong size?

You can put yourself at a risk for plethora of problems, such as

Q10. How to find the right bra for your breast shape?

Here, we have narrowed down the types of bras you should pick as per your breast shape.

Q11. How to make your bra last as long as possible?

To retain the lifespan of your bra, you must machine wash it instead of handwashing it in cold temperature. This is especially important for padded bras. Also, use a lingerie bag to prevent deformation of cups.

Q12. When should you replace your bras?

The average recommended time to revamp your bra closet is about six months to a year depending on your usage. If you wear everyday cotton bras more than others, we recommend you swap them after six months. However, something like a strapless or balconette bra, which you only wear a few times, they can last as long as a year.
