If you feel that reading text is very tiring, you can go directly to the bottom of the article. We have made a simple picture of how to choose a bra, which is believed to make it easier to read.


We get that bra size can be confusing, so think of it like jeans shopping. You don’t always wear the same size pants, and you would never assume a pair fits without trying it on first. The same is true for bras! Just as getting the perfect fit in denim depends on the brand, cut, style and rise, one bra might be great on you; another, not so much.

How will you know when you’ve found the perfect fit? — CharmsChic

Like falling in love, when it happens, you’ll know. Your breasts will be where you want them to be and look how you want them to look. You should feel lifted and supported, with zero pain. You know how when something doesn’t feel quite right, it’s all you can think about? This is the opposite of that. When the fit is fab, you won’t think about your bra at all. You’ll be contained, comfortable, confident and in control of your day. The perfect fit frees you up to handle anything; it lets you do you.

So now I want to tell you how to measure the size of the bra.To find your bra size, you'll need a tape measure and your best-fitting bra.


Wearing your bra (no sports bras or minimizers, please), take a snug measurement around your ribcage in inches, directly under your bust and level all around. If you get an odd number, add five.your band size is the sum of this calculation. round up to the next whole number.



Take a loose measurement over the fullest part of your bust in inches, keeping the tape level around your body. If needed, round up to the nearest inch.



Subtract your band size from your bust size. You can then find your cup size using the Bra Size Chart below.
For example 38 -36=2 Meaning that your size is B



1. Wearing the right bra makes all the difference in how your clothes fit, how you feel, how your day goes. That’s why we are for everybody—and everybody. The range we carry—76 unique sizes in bands 28 to 58 and cups AA to O—is unrivaled. We’re here to pair you with the perfect bras.

2. Even with all the right measurements, you still have to try on a bra for fit.

3. Stop paying attention to the letter and the number. You’re so much more than your bra size. Fit and support are what matter most.

4. Start paying attention to which styles flatter your figure—bra types are so much more than a personal preference. Plunge bras are ideal for Petites and close-set chests. Balconettes work for broader shoulders and full busts. Three- or four-part cups help center wide-set breasts. Smoothers banish back fat without sacrificing support.

5. If you rip your bra off the minute you walk in the door, it’s time for an intervention. The right bra should never be painful or even annoying to wear. It exists, and we can help you find it.

6. The ideal wardrobe is made up of six bras: two nude and two black in styles that suit you, one strapless and one sports bra. Anything above and beyond is a bonus. For travel, pack two regular bras, a bralette, a sports bra if needed, a swimsuit and a pair of underwear per day plus two extras.

7. Use a drawer to store your bras—nest them together, with cups splayed out lengthwise—and stash underwear and socks separately. Keep lingerie in a delicates bag to prevent snags, rips, and fading.

8.Hand-wash, or machine-launder in a mesh bag with a detergent made for delicates. Always air dry.

9. Replace bras every six months (or sooner after weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy or weaning).

Finally, we made a simple infographic of how to choose a bra, hoping to help you more easily. Of course, if you think it is great, then we look forward to sharing it with more people.
