Bra Size Calculator - Measure your Bra Size in 2 easy steps

Did you know that around 80% Indian women wear ill-fitting bras? A well-fitted bra is not only important for the right look, but also crucial in defining the correct posture and lending the needed support. One of the major reasons behind ill-fitting bras is that most women don’t get their bra size measured. Knowing your correct bra size is the first step towards finding the perfect bra fitting. Thankfully, calculating the br­a size is no rocket science. All you need is a measuring tape and a mirror. Also, you should wear well-fitted non-padded bra.

Here’s a detailed Bra Size Chart for Indian body types to help you with your right size

  • Round the number obtained, to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add 4 inches. If it’s odd, add 5.
  • The sum of this calculation is your band size
Example: 25.6 Inches will round off to 26 Band size - 26 + 4 = 30

Q4. How can I tell if my bra fits properly? Let’s check each part of the bra.
  • There should be enough space to let 2 fingers pass through your bra straps.
  • The back band should lay straight on the back without riding up.
  • The centre gore should sit flat against your sternum.
  • The underwires should fully encircle the breasts.
  • Your breasts shouldn’t spill out of the cups and the cups shouldn’t have extra room either.
Q5. Am I wearing my bra correctly? Let’s double check.

As long as you’re following these steps, you’re good.

  • Ensure that the bra is tucked on the loosest hook and eye enclosure.
  • Do the scoop and swoop to ensure optimal support from the cups.
  • Adjust the straps for a snug fit.
Q6. How to find the right bra for your breast shape?

Here, we have narrowed down the types of bras you should pick as per your breast shape.

  • Asymmetric: Plunge bra
  • Athletic: Sports or racerback bra
  • Bell: T-shirt bra
  • Round: Balconette bra
  • Downward: Push-up
Q7. What are sister sizes?

Everyone has a unique body type, which means sometimes you may not find accurate bra size measurement using the regular bra size chart. Here, you can switch to sister sizes. Basically, these are alternate bra sizes where the cup volume stays the same even though the band size and cup letter change. For instance, if you are a 34 B, there is a good chance that a 32 C or a 36 A will fit you. 32 C will have a shorter band size and 36 A will have a longer one, so you can figure out what fits you better.

Q8. How to make your bra last as long as possible?

To retain the lifespan of your bra, you must machine wash it instead of handwashing it in cold temperature. This is especially important for padded bras. Also, use a lingerie bag to prevent deformation of cups.

Q9. When should you replace your bras?

The average recommended time to revamp your bra closet is about six months to a year depending on your usage. If you wear everyday cotton bras more than others, we recommend you swap them after six months. However, something like a strapless or balconette bra, which you only wear a few times, they can last as long as a year.
