To ensure that you get the best possible fit, & you order the right size undergarments, please measure accurately.
These measurements are only an approximation of what your size should be. Some bra and girdle styles may fit smaller or larger than what your actual measurements indicate. It may vary from one manufacturer to another. If you are unsure, please phone, fax, e-mail, or write to us so we can help you determine your correct size.
While wearing a bra, place the tape measure around your rib cage just below the bust under the bottom bra edge. Make sure the tape is comfortably snug, and take your measurement to the fullest inch. Add 5 inches to that measurement to determine your bra size. If the total measurement is an odd number, then round up to the next number to determine bra size. If the total measurement is an even number, then that is your bra size.
Measure loosely around the back and around the fullest part of your bust. The difference between this measurement and the bra size from step 1 will be your approximate cup size.
|If the difference is:||0"||1"||2"||3"||4"||5"||6"||7"||8"||9"||10"|
|your cup size is:||A||B||C||D||DD/E||DDD||F||FF||G||H||I|
Take an easy measurement of the natural break of the waist. This will be the actual waist measurement.
Take your measurement at the fullest part of the buttocks. This will be the actual hip measure.
|Waist Size:||25 to 26||27 to 28||29 to 30||31 to 32||33 to 34||35 to 36||37 to 38||39 to 40||41 to 42|
|Hip Size:||35 to 36||37 to 38||39 to 40||41 to 42||43 to 44||45 to 46||47 to 48||49 to 50||51 to 52|
Just as important as finding your correct size, properly putting on a bra is necessary to ensure proper fit. Put your arms through the straps and on to your shoulders. Lean forward and let your bust fall into the cups naturally. Fasten the hook at the position most comfortable (usually the middle hook). Adjust the straps so that the weight of your bust is supported and the back of your bra is level with the front. The level of your bust should be positioned halfway between your shoulder and your elbow. If it is below the halfway point, than shorten the straps. If it above the halfway point, than lengthen the straps.
The bra should sit comfortably snug on your rib cage. If you raise your arms straight above your head, the bra should not move or lift up and away from your body. If it does, the rib cage size may be too large and or the cups too small.
Your breasts should be completely covered inside the cups of the bra. If you are spilling out the front and sides, the cups may be too small or the staps too tight.
