How to measure your bra size

It is important that you measure your chest complete with your prosthesis to ensure you get the correct bra size. You need your bra to fit you snugly and to be strong enough to hold your prosthesis in place through the evening.

So to start with temporarily affix your prosthesis to your chest,
(preferably in the right position around the front).

The industry has designated the sizes of bra's as follows:-

Bra Sizes
UK Euro French Int
32 70 85 65
34 75 90 70
36 80 95 75
38 85 100 80
40 90 105 85
42 95 110 90
44 100 115 95
46 105 120 100
48 110 125 105

So Let's Measure:-

Firstly measure your rib cage underneath the prosthesis,
(call this measurement a).

If measurement (a) is even number then add 4",
if it is odd number then add 5"
.

For example: If the measurement (a) is 39"
-  then add 5" and your bra size is a 44".

If measurement (a) is 42"
-  then add 4" and your bra size is a 46".

Use the table below to determine your bra size.

Bust Measurement Add Bra Size
27 inches 5 inches 32 inches
28 inches 4 inches 32 inches
29 inches 5 inches 34 inches
30 inches 4 inches 34 inches
31 inches 5 inches 36 inches
32 inches 4 inches 36 inches
33 inches 5 inches 38 inches
34 inches 4 inches 38 inches
35 inches 5 inches 40 inches
36 inches 4 inches 40 inches
37 inches 5 inches 42 inches
38 inches 4 inches 42 inches
39 inches 5 inches 44 inches
40 inches 4 inches 44 inches
41 inches 5 inches 46 inches
42 inches 4 inches 46 inches
43 inches 5 inches

48 inches

 

The difference between the bra measurement
and the cup measurement identifies the cup size.

Temporarily attach your prosthesis to your chest.
Measure over the fullest part of the prosthesis.
Subtract the bra size you calculated in the previous paragraph.


Your chest measurement was 38", an even number so you added 4" and that gave you a bra size of 42".
The measurement around you and your prosthesis was 46".
So take the first measurement from the second measurement 46" minus 42", this leaves a difference of 4. So from the table below we see we need a bra with a DD cup.
The bra we need to buy is a 42DD - simple!
