    Follow these four easy steps for your bra size:
    Measurement number 1: Measure under your bust line.
    Put on your best-fitting, unpadded, under wire bra. Measure underneath the bust line and make sure to measure tightly. Be sure the tape measure is straight across your back.
    The general rule of thumb for all measuring is: less than ½”, round DOWN, more than a ½”, round UP. So if your measurement is 32 ¼”, call it 32. Write this number down. This is measurement number 1.
    Band Size: Calculate your band size.
    If measurement 1 is UNDER 33 inches, add 5 inches. If this number is odd, round up to the next EVEN number. If measurement 1 is OVER 33 inches, add 3 inches. If this number is odd, round up to the next EVEN number. Write this EVEN number down. This is your band size..
    Measurement number 2: Measure over the bust line
    Measure over the biggest point of your bust line. This is a looser measurement. Make sure the tape measure is straight. Write this number down. This is measurement number 2.
    Cup Size: Calculate your cup size.
    First subtract measurement number 1 from measurement number 2. Then consult the above chart to find your cup size.

    I was talking about this in the other thread.

    At the back of every bra box, there's description like its this is your size, then B, C, D etc. but the problem is with so much varieties.. it differs, its not like if its 36B lets say, then its going to be the same in all.. for everything I need to wear, make sure if thats the correct and fittest and then buy it.. sometimes its 36A and sometime 36B ... I never got fixated one.. ever WitsendWitsend

    Re: Right bras

    Did you ever try Playtex brand?
    It seemed to be the right choice for me atleast and I felt comfortable while wearing tees and shirts.
