Find Your Right Bra Fit

Fitting advice written from the nude specialists Rose & Bare.

A bra that’s not fitted correctly can cause regular discomfort, back problems, impact your productivity and change the way your clothes sit on your body (and how your curves look!) Support, comfort and longevity comes from the right fit, so we’re glad you’re taking the time to make sure you pick the perfect Rose and Bare bra. To use our easy fit guide, all you need is your measurements.

Hot tip: if you don’t have a measuring tape, you can use string and a ruler to take your measurements.

Natalie Roser, Founder of Rose & Bare will take you though the steps to find your right fit. 

CUP MEASUREMENT

Measure around your bust, at the widest point (usually nipple height)

Let the tape rest, do not pull it tight. If the tape rests on a half measurement, we recommend rounding up rather than down.

UNDER-BUST MEASUREMENT

Measure just under your bust, around your ribs. Exhale to reduce your rib size. You want this measurement to be taken when the tape is pulled tight, without cutting in too much.
Round your inch measurement to an even number, then add on two. This is your band size in inches.

Use the chart below and these two measurements to determine your Rose and Bare bra size.

YOUR BAND SIZE



YOUR CUP SIZE



SISTER SIZES



INTERNATIONAL SIZE CONVERSIONS

BRA FITTING FOR AUGMENTATION

If you have had breast augmentation surgery, then we recommend using this measuring method to determine your Rose and Bare bra size.

BAND SIZE WITH BREAST IMPLANTS

Breast implant surgery should not change your band size. So, calculating your band size with implants is performed exactly the same way described above, where we explain how to measure for your bra's band size.

CUP MEASUREMENT WITH BREAST IMPLANTS

Measuring for your new cup size with implants is not the same method as the measuring system for normal breast tissue. With your tape measure parallel to the floor, measure your breast from where your breast begins in your cleavage, across your breast apex, then over to where your breast ends near the armpit. With this measurement, and your band measurement, use the table below to determine your cup size.
