Step 1 - Measure Your Underbust
Wrap the measuring tape around your underbust, making sure it is parallel to the ground. Measure the circumference and this is your underbust measurement.

Step 2 - Measure Your Top Bust
Now wrap the tape across the fullest part of your bust and this is your top bust measurement.

How Can I Tell My Bra Fits Ok?

Check your band fit to see if it feels comfortable and snug while you hook the last hooks at the widest fit. Your bra should not ride up and stays parallel to the ground. You can tighten your bra as it stretches over time with regular wear.

Tips: If the your bra band is digging into your skin, and it doesn’t smooth out your back bulges, you need to up your band size, for example from 70 to 75. If your bra is riding upwards from the back, it means it is too loose, you need to down your band size, for example from 80 to 75.

Bra Cup
Each bra cup should fill the whole breast. Swipe and ensure your breasts sit nicely fitted into the cups with no gaps or spillage from the top and sides. Overflow from the top and side of the cup might mean the bra cup is too small for fit. If gaps are formed between the bra cup and breast, the bra cup might be too big for the fit.

Tips: If there is spillage from your bra cups, you need to up your cup size, for example, from A to B. If there is gaps between your breasts and bra cups, you need todown your cup size, for example, from C to B.


The straps should not be digging into your skin that will create discomfort and pain in your body. Slippy loose bra straps can prove to be annoying and lack of good support. A good rule of thumb is always to ensure you are able to slide 2 fingers between the strap and your shoulder. It should be snugged and not loose.

Tips: Slide and adjust your bra straps whenever you just bought a new bra or doing a new fit.

The underwire should not be pressing against your breasts’ tissues. Underwires should sit nicely right under your breasts to provide support without squashing them and causing discomfort and pain.Tips: If the underwire is poking you, this might have meant your bra was not well taken care of during wash and care and might have bend somehow. You will need to replace a new one to prevent injuring yourself.

Other Key Notes For Good Fit:

• Measurements are crucial. Ensure your measuring tape is straight all the way around, stays snug without digging in. Breathe normally and check your measurement after you exhale.

• From time to time it is good to retake your measurements to ensure you are wearing the right size.

• If you struggled to fit to your usual size, try sister sizes for fitting when your cup or band is not fitting well on you. For example, if you are usually a 75B, and realise that the bra band fits loose on you but you will still like to maintain the cup volume, try a sister size 70C. If it is the other way round, you realise that it is tight at the bra band, down a cup size and up a size band by trying 80A. See our sister size chart below for more info.
