When choosing the right bra for you:
It's good to always fit new bras together with a shirt. Choose a suitably light shirt that you wear often and be sure to mirror the view sideways as well. In the case of an inconspicuous bras, that you do not want to be seen under light shirts, for example, you should also pay attention to the lighting in which you fit the bra.
If fitting bra size for you seems to be a mystery or your old bars have felt unfitting in size, read the following tips extra carefully. You can put your own old bra on you and compare their fit with these instructions:
If you suspect that the circumference of the bra you ordered is too loose, you can try putting the hooks on the back in the tightest spot. This gives a little hint of what an one step smaller girth would feel on. If the adjustment goes easily the tightest, a smaller circumference size would definitely be a good choice. Please note the parallel sizes here.
Parallel sizes refer to bra sizes in which the size of the bra cup remains approximately the same, but the circumference of the bra changes; it is good to know that the size of the cup is always proportional to the circumference of the bra, i.e. the C-cup in the 75 circumference bras is smaller than the C-cup in the 80 circumference bras. Take, for example, a bra size 80B which feels too loose in its wearer but suitable for its cup. In this case, the parallel size is 75C, which is one step tighter in circumference and one cup larger in size. Another example where 80B feels too tight on its wearer, the parallel size is 85A, one step greater in circumference but a step smaller in cup size. In other words, when reducing the circumference, the cup must be increased by one size and when increasing it must be reduced by one size. So simple that it hurts!
In order for the bra to fit properly, the size must be correct. The use of your new bra always starts with the most loose row of hooks. The size should be snug so that the bra does not rotate on you and remains firmly in it's place. Our size chart guides you to choose a good snug size based on your measurement sizing. If you absolutely like looser band sizes, you can choose a circumferenceone size larger than the table suggests.
1. Measure the circumference from the top of the breast
Take the circumference of the unpretentiated bra on top of the highest point of your breast. Do not hold the measuring tape too tight, but still so, that it is neatly attached to your body.
2. Measure the circumference under the breast
Take the circumference right below the breast. Keep the measuring tapeneatly attached to your body. This measure determines the circumference of the bra.
3. Cup size
Calculate the difference between measures 1 and 2. The difference you get will help you choose the right cup size.
Phew, we're done here! Now that you've figured out the measurements you need, compare them with the tables below that tell you your size.

In these products, the designment of the size relative in a way, that the cup and the circumference increase in the same proportion. If you are thinking between two sizes and looking for comfortable home bras, we recommend taking a looser option to make it easy to put on and feel comfortable. When considering the size, you can first think about what size t-shirt or top you're wearing. That gives you a good direction to what could be your size with bra as well.
