Determine Band Size

  • Wear a good-fitting, non-padded bra and face the mirror.
  • Wrap the measuring tape very snugly around your rib cage, just under your bustline. Make sure the tape is even and parallel with the floor.
  • Exhale and pull the measuring tape as tightly as possible. This is your Rib Cage measurement.
  • If the measurement is odd, add 5". If the measurement is even, add 4". If the measurement is 40" or above, add only 3-4 inches. This is your Band Size.
  • Use this chart as a guideline.
  • Select the Band Size according to your Rib Cage measurement as follows:
Rib Cage 27-28" 29-30" 31-32" 33-34" 35-36" 37-38" 39-41" 42-43" 44-45"
Band Size (USA) 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48
UK 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48
Europe 70 75 80 85 90 - - - -
France 85 90 95 100 105 - - - -
Italy 1 2 3 4 5 - - - -
Australia 10 12 14 16 18 - - - -
  • To confirm the Band Size, wrap the measuring tape loosely around your rib cage, just above your bustline and under your arms. This measurement should equal the Band Size.

Determine Cup Size

  1. Wear a good-fitting, non-padded bra.
  2. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, making sure the tape is parallel to the floor and lying flat around your body.
  3. This will be a loose measurement. You should be able to easily insert 2 fingers sideways between the side of your breast and the tape. This is your Bust Measurement.
  4. The difference in inches between the Band Size and the Bust Measurement will determine the cup size:
Bust Minus Band 0" 1" 2" 3" 4" 5" 6" 7" 8"
Cup Size (USA) AA A B C D DD/E DDD/F G H
Europe AA A B C D E F G H

my new favorite
By Carolyn from Denver from on 7/25/2013
Wacoal bras and panties fit my body type and I always love that they are pretty as well as functional. This is my new favorite. It is soft and comfortable, deeply cut so it doesn't show under v-neck and scoop neck tops yet it still provides support. The straps are positioned farther out on the shoulders and stay in place without showing under relaxed scoop neck tops or thinner-strapped sundresses. Wacoal is consistent with sizing and product quality. As always, I enjoy shopping WSB -- great service, speedy response. Pros: - comfortable
great fit
