Measurements don't always work, and cup sizes can vary from one brand to another if you need any help regarding sizing please give us a call as we have qualified fitters in house. These are a general guidelines for establishing a good starting point, sizes will vary depending on what style of bra you are wearing.

1. Finding Your Band Size. Measurements should be taken while wearing a bra. The measuring tape should be held snug but not tight while measuring. Begin by wearing your best fitting bra - unpadded and not a minimizer or sports bra. Measure around the back under the Arm Pits across top part of bust, which gives you your band size. E.G. 38" USA which is equal to Size 16 (Refer chart below)

USA 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54
AUST 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 32

There are dozens of measuring systems and we have found that none of them are quite the same. And, careful testing has shown that none of them have 100% accuracy rate either. As much as we wish it were, measuring for a bra is not an exact science. So, what's a woman to do? Here is some common-sense advice for a perfect fit.
