Bra Size Charts

Here at figleaves.com we're passionate about providing the perfect fit.

Finding a bra that fits you well will not only provide you with everyday comfort, but will improve your posture and figure in an instant.

With over 15 years of experience in lingerie fitting, we feel the most accurate way of working out your bra size is to try on a range of different sizes and bra shapes to determine what feels right and what gives you the correct fit. Every style and brand of lingerie fits slightly differently, so pay attention to the fit and appearance of every bra you try. Here are some tips:

  • The underband of the bra should be firm enough around your body to grip to your rib cage and not slip or move when you are active.
  • The front and back of the bra should sit at the same level around your body, and the back should not be pulled up higher by shortening the straps.
  • The wires should be touching the rib cage at the centre front, around the bust and at the underarm. The wire should not lean onto breast tissue. A firm enough underband should hold this in place on the ribs.
  • Your breasts should not be bulging over the cups and the cups should not have any loose fabric either.

Find your cup size

If your band size has changed then your cup size will too. If you have gone down 2 band sizes you may go up two cup sizes. For example, if you were previously size 34D and you are now wearing band size 30, your cup size will now be E cup - highlighted below.

28F 28FF 28G 28GG 28H 28HH 28J 28JJ
30E 30F 30FF 30G 30GG 30H 30HH 30J
32DD 32E 32F 32FF 32G 32GG 32HDD 32HH
34D 34DD 34E 34F 34FF 34G 34GG 34H
36C 36D 36DD 36E 36F 36FF 36G 36GG
38B 38C 38D 38DD 38E 38F 38FF 38G
40A 40B 40C 40D 40DD 40E 40F 40FF
42AA 42A 42B 42C 42D 42DD 42E 42F
      44B 44C 44D 44D 44E
        46B 46C 46D 46DD
          48B 48C 48D
            50B 50C

Points to remember

  • Use these table guides as a starting point only and use in conjunction with the fit guides and bra calculator.
  • The same cup size will not be the same on different band sizes. For example, the cup size of a 32D will not be the same as a 36D, it is dependent on the bra's band size as shown in the chart above.
  • The new size may not feel right for you initially, especially if you have been wearing a bra that fitted incorrectly. The most common fault is wearing a bra that has been too loose in the underband, therefore your new band size will feel tighter. If your new band size is more than two sizes different you may feel it more comfortable to change one size at a time.
  • The tape measure can only provide a rough guide, you will only find your perfect fit by trying on different styles and following our guides.
  • Remember the most important thing is to have the bra fitting correctly. Try on different shapes to see what suits you and what makes you feel comfortable.
  • Bra sizing may appear complicated, but it is in fact very simple if you follow the steps above.
