Sizing Guide for Nursing Bras

The Bravado Sizing Guide will help you find your bra size. Before you start make sure you are wearing an unpadded bra that isn't a compression or a sports bra. Be sure to stand straight and relaxed with your arms down. It works best to ask someone to help you measure but if you are doing it by yourself, stand in front of a mirror.

    


Band Measurement:

Place the measuring tape around your back and underneath your arm pits. Check that the tape is on a bit of an upward angle and positioned directly under your arm pit when wrapping tape around your body. Tape should be lying flat and parallel on the hook and eye closure of your bra. Pull snug you want it to feel tight, but not constricting. Look down and record your measurement. HINT: If your measurement falls in between even numbers, round up. For example, a 33 would become 34. If you are just above an even number (for example, 32.5), then round down.

Chest Measurement:

Place the measuring tape around your back and place on top of the fullest part of your chest. Be sure to push the measuring tape in between the center of your breasts (it should be touching the place between your breasts) to ensure you account for your full bust capacity. Check that the tape is horizontal when wrapped around your body. Tape should be lying flat and parallel on the hook and eye closure of your bra. Hold the tape loosely in place. Look down and record your measurement. HINT: It is ideal having someone assist you with this measurement.
