How to measure your bra size at home with a tape measure!

To determine the band size:
Measure snugly around your ribcage, directly under your breasts. Add 3 inches to this measurement. For example, if your ribcage is 31 inches, your band size is 34. If your result is an odd number, go UP to the next band size.. For example, if your rib cage is 32 inches, 32+3=35, round 35 up to a 36 band size.

To determine the cup size:
Measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust. Subtract the band size from this measurement. Use this number to determine your cup size according to the table below.


Example: if your ribcage measurement is 31, and your bust measurement is 37, your bra size is a 34C: 31+3=34, so 34 is your band size. Since 37-34= 3, you’ve got a C cup.
