    Ok, this has been bugging me for awhile :blink: This is the type of chart I've always seen that is supposed to tell you your bra size:

    To find out your body size, wrap a measuring tape around your diaphragm while wearing a bra. Add five inches to this measurement to find out your total body size. If it's an uneven number, round up.

    Then place a measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. The difference between this measurement and your total body size decides your cup size. Here's how to calculate.

    * If your bust measurement is up to an inch larger than your body size, your cup size is A.

    * If your bust measurement is up to 2 inches larger than your body size, you're a B.

    * Three inches larger, you're a C.

    * Four inches larger is a D.

    * Five inches larger is a DD.

    * Six inches larger is a DDD.

    Now, when I do this to myself it says I should wear a 30B - is this even a real size? :wacko: Also what about models, whose measurements are usually 33-23-33 or 34-24-34? If you add about 2 inches to the waist for the rib cage a 33-23 model would wear a bra size 30C and a 34-24 model would wear a 32B? Am I just confused or do these charts just not work?

    Bra sizes are so weird. You just have to go and try each bra out to see which one fits. Mine range from 34-38, A-C.

    At the Gap, I got $5 off on a bra because I let them measure me to get my proper bra size. :huh: Sure enough, they came up with the size I've been buying and handed me a little coupon...but I don't understand why being measured earned me a discount. Maybe it was practice for the girl working there or perhaps it was just an incentive for me to actually buy something. Anyway, you can easily get measured at a store like the Gap or Victoria's Secret, most likely for free. I think department stores measure you also. It doesn't clear up your exact questions, but it should at least help you find a bra size that fits properly. Good luck! :flower:

    You want to measure your body right where the breast tissue ends, not near the waistline at all. Prob 4-7 inches above the waistline(depending on a person's body of course) I am very long and the area I would measure is at least 7 inches above my waist. If the size you came up with didn't seem reasonable, you are prob. measuring too low on your torso.

    Its not a bad idea to go and get measured by a professional bra-woman :flower: It really sucks to have an uncomfortable bra :doh:

    BTW- you can get bras in all sizes, so while a 30B might be a less popular size and scarce at your local shops, it is available- you can have them ordered and I am sure you can find them in online catalogs- good luck and take care of yer boobins ladies :ninja: :flower: :flower:

    Just go to your local Victoria's Secret and they'll measure you in the privacy of the fitting room.. it's a lil weird I guess. . but woman to woman, it's not a big deal in my eyes... i see worse things in the gym locker room.

    Anyways.. if asked, they have to.. they're trained in how to do it.. I guess.

    I like when after Miranda's mummy died on SATC the lady demanded to measure her. She's a 36B just like me!

    It gives me hope that my breasts are already the same size as a thirty something year old's when I'm still a teenager :lol:

    does anyone know: do they measure while you are wearing a bra or not?

    Bra sizing is so weird, I change size all the time and sometimes have to make changes to them. I just have to guess and find out which size would fit me so yes, it takes me a long long while to find it.

    i think im a freak of nature. the bra sizing thing doesnt work for me- my boobs are too small. i measure 30.5 on my rib cage (so +5 = 35.5) but then only 33.5 around the fullest part! so is the body size supposed to be bigger once you've added 5, or the bust size? because apparently when i do this, i get a -AA?? hhahah. whatever. i fit into a 34A so im just going to disregard this measuring thing!

    Those measurements don't always work. I'm actually a 32DD but according to my measuring tape and this measuring system I'm a 33 C. I haven't been a C cup since I was 13 :lol:

    if you are worried that its not correct, there is another way to do it. instead of measuring under the band and adding five, you can measure just above the breasts and that should be the correct number without having to add anything.

    as for cup, there is another trick. you start the tape at your side, under your armpit, like where the underwire hits. then, look at the number where the measuring tape hits the middle of the nipple. starting at five for an A and going from there.

    Ive found that these ways work better, because sometimes, with adding, ive found that peoples band size would be bigger than what is around the bust, does that make sense. so it just ends up confusing.

    like what she is saying here
    i work at VS, i hate measuring, im awful at it the traditional way (most of us are) but the other way is just better. i hope i explained it alright

    also, for those that ask, at VS, we measure you wearing your bra, but if you are wearing a sports bra, a minimizer, or a pushup/padded bra we cant measure acurately and like, we send the person to the wardrobing center where they try on a bra in the size they normally wear and then we measure them.

    Yeah I never really did that sizing-in my freshman year I was able to float between a 34 and 36 C but able to wear some B's-but then by the end of that year I had outgrown them so I knew I needed it in D's. Pretty much the best way is to take some into the dressing room and try them on because that way you'll know what fits the best.

    If you are just going to try on a bunch of bras to see what fits- this might be helpful. If you're wearing the bra on the loosest hook and it sits well, you are at least wearing the right back size. Most women wear their bras on the loosest hook meaning they are probably wearing a bra 2" too loose in the back measurement.

    Seriously I don't understand half a word here, in Europe sizes usually start from 80 which is a rather small size, most woman are around 90-95. This thing of A or AA or stuff like that, I've never ask for that plus all my bra's are 85 A B or C, I've got all kinds and they all look the same to me.

    Anyone knows how to meassure yourself in french/spanish sizing? From what i cann see they are the same.
