    Re: Bra size

    Hi Shravantika,

    It's simple if you have a measuring tape. Just measure your chest below your breast and then measure along your breast. Eg: If ur chest measures 34 and along your breast 36- ur bra size is 34 B. Every inch of difference from your base is your cup size. 1-A, 2-B so on.

    Hope this helps.

    You can also go to special bra stores where professionsal sales women help you with fittings to identify the right size. Victoria Secret is great store to shop in

    hi sravanthika,

    my bra size in india was 38 trilo brand.I used to take them in abids"amar emporium".Now after comming here,with the help of ladies in macy's and kohls shops, i figured out that is 36-d here.Iam using playtex-18hour comfort type which costs $15 etc.sometimes we get for $13 on sale.It is good and really very comfortable.

    SO sravanthika,take help from either victoria's secret,macys,kohls etc.They measure and tell our correct bra size etc.

    Re: Bra size

    Hello Ladies,

    I too need some help in buying bras in the US. I normally use to buy for a year from Naidu Hall everytime I go for vacation. This time I didn't go shopping due to want of time.

    I want to try some bra models sold here that will be really comfortable to wear.
