HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BRA SIZE

Let us help you find your correct size. Using a soft measuring tape, calculate your band measurement and cup measurement by imputing the inches in the fields below:
BRA SIZE QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
80% of women wear the wrong bra size.
The bra band provides 90% of a bra's support.
A wider shoulder strap and wider band will offer added support.
Please consult the suggested size equivalent chart below.
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about bra size and fitting:
Does your band ride up in the back?
If so, the band could be too large. Try a smaller band size. Don’t forget to adjust the cup size accordingly.
Do you have folds around the band, especially on your sides?
If so, this means that your band is too tight and it will not provide the support you want. Try a larger band size and remember to decrease your cup size when increasing your band size.
Do your breasts overflow from your bra cup?
If so, you may need to increase your cup size. If you have already tried a larger size and still don’t feel comfortable, the bra and style may not be your perfect fit. Visit the Simone Perele Bra Style Guide for tips on finding the right style for your size and shape.
Does the underwire cut into the side of your breasts?
If so, try a larger cup size for better support and comfort.
Do your straps leave indentations on your shoulders?
This often indicates that your band size is too large, which could add pressure to the straps. The bra band should provide 90% of a bra's overall support. We recommend trying a smaller band size for better support and less pressure to your straps.
Have you tightened your bra straps only to find that the bra still doesn't offer enough support?
This means that the bra band size is too large. A smaller band size will offer the proper support without having to rely on your bra straps to do all of the work.
