You'll need a soft measuring tape, a pen and paper, and our easy 3 step bra size calculator. It shows you step-by-step how to get your measurements, and calculate your size.

Keep in mind though, like all good things bra size calculators should be used as a guideline only, and it's always best to try a bra in person the first time before buying.

Bra Sizes Never Change, Right?

Why do you need to measure your bra size so often? No huge surprises - a woman's body changes enormously throughout her lifetime.

Hormones, age, weight gain, weight loss, stress, pregnancy, time, smoking, different medications, and of course gravity are just a few factors that can affect a woman's body and breast size.

Having yourself measured about twice a year, or whenever you're bra shopping will ensure you consistently get a comfy bra fit.

Carmen's Tip For A Better Bra Fit

* Have yourself measured and determine bra size 1-2x a year.

* Don't wear a brassiere more than 3 days in a row. Bra fabric and elastic needs time to rest in between wearings. Instead, have several bras and rotate them.

* Never put your bras in the dryer. Heat breaks down the fibers, and wears them out.

* Handwash your delicates with a mild detergent in tepid or cold water. Air or line dry.
