These values consist of a number and one or more letters indicating the band and *breast* *cup size*. This method of measurement became popular in the 1940s and since then each manufacturer has adapted it for its products. But women's bodies are unique and different and many of them have a difficult time finding the proper size. It is said that up to 80% of women wear the wrong size and this can lead to pain of one kind or another.

Run a tape measure around your body trying to keep it horizontal, just underneath your breasts, keeping your arms down. Write this number down.

1inch = 2.54 cm

## How to measure bust size?

Bend over so that your bust is parallel to the ground and apply the tape measure at the point where your breast protrudes the most outward, around your torso. Make sure the tape is placed straight and not too tight or too loose. Write this number down too.

To find out your *bra size* you'll need to find out the difference between the two numbers by subtracting the band measurement from the bust measurement.

less than 1 inch = AA;

1 inch = A;

2 inches = B;
