Measurements don't always work, and cup sizes can vary from one brand to another if you need any help regarding sizing please give us a call as we have qualified fitters in house. These are a general guidelines for establishing a good starting point, sizes will vary depending on what style of bra you are wearing.
Finding Your Band Size. Measurements should be taken while wearing a bra. The measuring tape should be held snug but not tight while measuring. Begin by wearing your best fitting bra - unpadded and not a minimizer or sports bra. Measure around the back under the Arm Pits across top part of bust, which gives you your band size.
E.G. 38" USA which is equal to Size 16 (Refer chart below)
- Finding Your Cup Size. - Measure around the high point or fullest point of the bustline while wearing a bra.
If you measure 43 Inches subtract this from your band measurement for.

We know some women want to understand more about fit and want to have some idea of how to properly select, put on and fit an appropriate bra for themselves. There are dozens of measuring systems and we have found that none of them are quite the same. And, careful testing has shown that none of them have 100% accuracy rate either. As much as we wish it were, measuring for a bra is not an exact science. So, what's a woman to do? Here is some common-sense advice for a perfect fit.
We do offer fitting advice over the phone just in case you receive a bra that does not fit.
Step 1. Tell us where the bra fits or does not fit, so our staff can make a suggestion on which way to go.
Step 2. Return the bra for a refund or exchange. Please enclose a letter with the advice you were given over the phone or enclose your daytime phone number so we can call you back
BRA FIT GUIDE
- Bend forward and make sure the wires are positioned under the bust
- Stand upright and move the breast from the underarm if necessary so that it is inside the wire
- Part the bust at the centre to make sure the centre front of the bra is sitting correctly between the breasts
- The straps should be adjusted so that they are firm, but not too tight
