The first Bra Size chart : step by step
How to Measure the first bra size?
Measure around the rib cage, just below the bust.
– Measuring in Inches? Go to the closest even number and add 4 = The Band Size
– Measuring in centimeter? Go up or down to closest multiple of 5 = The Band Size
Measure under the arm around the center of the bust.
Determine the Bra band size:
|Measurement in inches||23″-25″||25″-27″||27″-29″||29″-31″||31″-33″||33″-35″|
|Your US/UK band size is:||28||30||32||34||36||38|
|Measurement in cm||58 – 62 cm||63 – 67 cm||68 – 72 cm||73 – 77 cm||78 – 82 cm||83 – 87 cm|
|Your EU band size is:||60||65||70||75||80||85|
Note that many teenager and kids bras don’t mention the cup size as there is not much cup to fill yet.
The first bra for your daughter or teenager might be found only with Band Size indication alone.
Determine the Bra cup size:
The difference between the Bust size (the biggest measurement) and the Rib Cage (or underbust) size makes the Cup size of your first bra.
|1/2″ – 1″||1,3-2,6 cm||A||A||A|
|5″||12.7 cm||DD or E||DD||E|
|6″||15.2 cm||DDD or F||E||F|
