Sizing: Band sizes 30-44 and A/B, C/D, (DD)E/F, G/H and I/J cups. Please check the designer’s size chart.
To determine band size, measure around your ribcage, also called your underbust. Be sure to keep the tape measure snug and level all the way around.
To determine cup size, measure around the fullest part of your bust. You can wear no bra, a sports bra or a lightly lined bra while measuring. Again, keep the tape measure level and snug all the way around. Subtract underbust measurement from full bust measurement, and then refer to the size chart. If you are between sizes, the designer suggests sizing up if you are a large cup size ((DD)E/F+) and sizing down if you are a small cup size.
