How to Measure Your Bra Size

Since the majority of women aren’t wearing the right bra size, we’ve put together a quick guide about measuring yourself to find the perfect fit, whether you’re pregnant, nursing, or just a lover of the finer things in life, like a well-fitting bra! For more information on sizing, check out this blog, contact our incredible Customer Care Team, or take our fit quiz.

1. Put on a bra that you feel fits you well. It shouldn’t be overly padded or constrictive. If you don’t have a flexible tape measure, you can use any soft, non-stretchy material like a belt, necktie, or string, and then measure that length with a standard tape measure or ruler.

2. To find your size from your measurements (in inches), begin by measuring your underbust. This is the area directly under your breasts, around your ribcage. The measuring tape should be snug but not tight. Round your underbust measurement to the next whole, even number. This rounded number is your band size.

3. Next, get your fullest bust measurement. Wrap the tape measure around your back and snugly across the fullest part of your breasts.

4. Then, subtract your band size from your fullest bust measurement. Each whole number difference is one cup size. A difference of two inches is a B cup, three inches is a C cup, four inches is a D cup, and so on.

For example, if your underbust is 37 inches, you'd round it up to 38. If your fullest bust measurement is 44 inches, you’d subtract 38 from 44 to get six, which is a cup size of F. The correct bra size given these measurements is 38F, which is an XL-Busty in most Kindred Bravely bras.

Since there are some slight variations among bra styles, please check your measurements on the size chart for each bra before ordering or message us at for assistance.

May all your bras be comfortable and supportive!
