To choose the right size for your bra, we recommend measuring yourself regularly, especially after a change in weight or pregnancy.
You will need to measure:
1. Bust size
The bust size is measured around the fullest part of the bust.
Place the tape at the fullest part of your bust. Make sure it’s parallel to your band again. Breath in and out to arrive at the comfortable measurement.
2. Ribcage size
The ribcage size is measured underneath the bust.
Wear a lightly lined (non-push-up) bra so your breasts are as close to natural as possible. Wrap a measuring tape directly under your breasts. Make sure it’s directly parallel with the bottom of the bra band. Breath in and out to arrive at the comfortable measurement.
3. Hip size
Bras & Bikini tops

Remember, wearing a bra should never result in the spillage or gaping in any area. A bra should fit you comfortably and allow you to move freely.
If you are experiencing:
Slipping straps: tighten your straps or try a smaller band size of the bra.
Digging straps: loosen your straps completely, if there is a pain in your neck, you may been a larger cup size.
Digging band: try looser setting, yet you might need a larger band size.
Band riding low: tighten your straps, if that doesn’t work for you, you band may be too big
Band riding high: you may need a bigger cup, but try loosening your straps
Spillage on top: you need a bigger cup size or the model with higher coverage
Side spillage: loosen your straps, if not helping, you need a bigger cup size
Under spillage: tide the hook closer, if that doesn’t help you can either reduce your band size or increase the cup size
Gaping cups/wrinkling cup: you need a smaller cup size
Keep in mind that:
- Materials stretch over time, so we do not advise to measure against the Bras that you are wearing now
- Your body changes across the cycle, so we advise to measure yourself frequently, especially before the purchase
- Each brand will have a slight differences in the sizing of the Bras, make sure to use the Size Chart provided
- Materials have different stretchability, tulle is the most flexible together with lace, embroidery and some lace types are less flexible, so if you are stuck in-between the sizes, vote for size up
