BH Fit & Size charts

This explanation starts with:
There are two breast shapes, which require a certain cup shape.


Apple shape:
Bend forward: if the breasts are completely round, we speak of an apple shape and you can choose the best preformed, lined ('padded') cup, without a partial cup seam. so that the breasts are not oppressed.


Pear shape:
Bend forward: the breasts form a point at the bottom, then we speak of a pear shape and it is best to choose a bra with a 'deep' cup with partial cup seams, or a balcony bra: this brings the breasts up and down together for fuller cleavage.


Measuring your measurements is easy:

1. Put on a well-fitting bra and grab your companion
2. Tape measure tight / not squeezing directly under the breasts, at the back at the same height, exhale, measure your undersize, note
3. Tape measure loosely at the level of the nipples, at the same height at the back, exhale, measure your upper width, note
5. Also measure each breast horizontally and vertically, calculate the average of the cup size indication, note
6. Look for these results in the size chart below

Note: Italian Design usually orders from cups A to F/G

A bra fits well when:

1.the breasts fit inside the wires
2.the wires connect to the body
3.the wires are not on or on the edge of the breasts
4.the intermediate piece between the cups connects to your body and not 'floats'
5. the circumference band is sufficiently tight, but does not pinch, is approximately 2 - 5 cm narrower than the lower width
6. the shoulder straps are not too tight; this can cause neck and shoulder
complaints
7. the shoulder straps are not too loose; this provides insufficient support for the breasts.

Bra fitting:

Shoulder straps checkup:
First, check that your shoulder straps are not too tight or too loose. If necessary, loosen or tighten them a bit.

Cup size checkup:
Check if your breasts fit inside the cups

The Underwire checkup:
The outside of the underwire is approximately below your armpit and connects to your skin
The inside underwires should be in the middle of your breastbone
The underwires connect to the body; the underwires are not on the breasts

The sizing band is important
The correct sizing band provides the necessary support

A too-tight sizing band
not only gives red welts and annoying bumps under your arms, but it can also be harmful to tissues!

A sizing band
that is too wide Provides insufficient support for the breasts; the breasts suffer, and that is not the intention.


The bra is uncomfortable and you ask yourself what this means:

The circumference is too tight, the cup size is good:
Choose a circumference band 1 size larger and a cup size 1 size smaller
Example: Size EU: 75B becomes EU: 80A

The circumference band is too wide, the cup size is right:
Choose a circumference band 1 size smaller and a cup size 1 size larger
Example: Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70D

The circumference band is good, but the cup is too small:
The size of the circumference remains the same, choose the cup one size larger.
Example: Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 75D

The circumference band is good, but the cup is too big:
The size for the size remains the same, choose the cup one size smaller.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 75B

The circumference band is too small and the cup is too small:
Choose a size band 1 size larger, the cup size remains the same.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 80C

The circumference band is too large and the cup is too large:
Choose a circumference band 1 size smaller, the cup size remains the same.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70C

The circumference band is too small and the cup too large:
Choose a circumference band 1 size larger, Choose a cup 1 size smaller
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 80C

The circumference band is too large and the cup is too small:
Choose a size band 1 size smaller and a cup size 1 size larger.
Size EU: 75C becomes EU: 70E
