SIZE & FIT: When buying swimwear start with the bottom same size as the trousers you buy, then the top cup size, not as precise as your bra but one cup size either side of what you wear can work.
Step 1. Band Measurement. While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, measure around the bottom of the band, directly under your bust. The measuring tape should be level all the way around your body and very snug. This is how the underband of the bra will fit, so the tape should be tight but not uncomfortable. If you are wearing a bra whilst measure be careful not to sit the tape over your bra or underwire. Use the inches measurement below to calculate your band size, also let us know the country sizing you are using. Each countries conversion is below the UK Inches reading. Eg. UK34 is AUS12 is USA10 is European 40.
Step 2. Bust Measurement. Wrap the measuring tape somewhat loosely around the fullest part of your chest (at nipple level). This is best done while you are wearing a bra (non-padded). Make sure the tape measure is straight across your back, and sits parallel to the floor all the way around your body. Round to the nearest whole number in inches.
Step 3. Subtract your band size from your bust measurement and refer to chart. Example: 37 inches (bust measurement) – 34 inches (band measurement) = 3 inches. So, that’s a UK 34C, or in AUS12C, or in USA10C or in Europe 40C.
Step 4. Pants measurement. Wrap the measuring tape around the hips, it is best to measure at fullest part of the bottom. Use the chart below to work out your size.
TIPS WHEN FITTING YOUR NEW BRA
Bend forward at the waist, then slip on the bra and hook it. This ensures your breasts are completely in the cups.
Adjust the band. The back of the bra should be level with the front.
Make sure the bra is not too loose.You should be able to slide only one finger underneath the band.
Fix falling straps. First, tighten the band, then shorten the straps.
