How to Determine Your Bra Size

Women can measure their bra size at home with a flexible tape measure and a little arithmetic. Bra sizes have two components: the band size and the cup size. In the US, the band size is an even number between 28 and 48, and the cup size is a letter A through D. Cup sizes smaller than A may be labeled AA, while cup sizes larger than D may be labeled E (DD), F (DDD), or G. Some brassiere manufacturers also make half cup sizes, such as AB, BC, and CD. To calculate your correct bra size, follow these steps, or use the convenient bra size calculator.
