Bra Size, Bra Shapes and the Measuring Tape

 We want you to celebrate your curves and not curse them.

 We are more about giving you the information you need, and handing the power over to you, so you can get the most amazing lingerie in the most decisive, agile and enjoyable way possible.

 Two handy little things to know to find out what bras will work best for you.

 

1. The right bra for you beyond your bra size, and getting to know your shape.

 

How often have you bought a bra that feels good in store and when you get it home you find its super uncomfortable?

Your bra shape is just as important as your bra size and we have a couple of ways you can determine your breast shape and the right bra for your body.

Note that there is no wrong or right here, it is merely finding out what bras are best suited to your body.

 

Step one. Measure the distance between the top of your forehead and your chin. Now compare this difference to the distance from your chin to the top of your cleavage. 

If the chin-to-cleavage measurement is shorter than you forehead-to-chin measurement, you have high set breasts.

Longer and you have low set breasts.

The same, means your girls are middle set.

 

Step two. How much space do you have in between your breasts?

Zero to none: You have close set breasts.

1 to 2 cm: Middle set.

More than 2cms: You have wide set breasts.

 

It’s common if you have low set breasts to also have wide set breasts.

 

For high set breasts: opt for plunge bras or balconette bras.

 

Low and/or wide set breasts: balconette bras will suit you best.

  

Close set breasts: Full cups or balconette bras.

 

2. To use a measuring tape or not to use a measuring tape?

 

At Curvy we don’t mind what technique you use, as long as you are wearing a bra the works for you and your body.

 

Our fitting room is based off your current bra, but if you have been wearing an ill fitted bra for a long time, then perhaps a measuring tape is the right thing for you. {Insert link to fitting room}

 

Step one. While wearing a non padded bra measure the your underbust in inches. This will give you your band size; use the chart below to convert it into your band size. 

 

Step two. Measure your over-bust, this will be the fullest part of your breasts in inches. Subtract your band size measurement from your over-bust measurement and use the chart below to find your cup size.

 

For example.

 

Over-bust measures:  34 inches

Underbust measures: 40 inches

 

The difference is 6.

 

It gives you a bra size of 12E or a UK 34E.
