are two elements to your bra size; the band size (ie. 32, 34, 36) and
cup size (ie. A, B, C). You will need a measuring tape to determine your
Using a soft tape-measure, measure around the ribcage directly under
the bust. Be sure the tape is smooth across the back and level with
Add 5 to this measurement to obtain your band size.
For example: If your ribcage measurement
is 29" + (5) = 34" band size. If the resulting band size is
an odd number like 33", you can usually go to the next even band
2. Cup size:
Measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust, holding the tape
measure straight but not tight. Subtract your band size from this measurement.
The result would be YOUR REGULAR BRA SIZE.
If the difference is
less than 1 inch to 1 inch = A cup
2 inches = B cup
3 inches = C cup
4 inches = D cup
5 inches = DD cup
example: If your band size is 34" and your bust measurement
is 35", you wear an "A" cup.
Evolution Bra Size:
Because the Bra will provide you with built-in graduated padding and
the option of extra push up in the cups, you should go to the next cup
size in order to obtain the best fitting.
For example: If you are a size 34(A), you may go to the 34(B)
The band size (34) should stay the same.
While this method is generally reliable, every
woman's figure is different and results may vary slightly. We recommend
that you try several sizes and styles to find the fit that works best
You should take your measurements while you are wearing a non-padded underwire
bra or a tight-fitting seamless T.
Because standard band sizes are even numbers only, if you have an odd-numbered
band size, you may need to go up or down a size depending on how you like
your bra to fit.

ENSURE THE RIGHT FIT
Now that you have your measurements, knowing how
the bra should be positioned on your body will also help you find your perfect
Here are a few key questions to keep in mind when you're trying on bras
to ensure that you get the right fit:
Q. Can you fit two fingers under the band comfortably?
A. The band should be fitted, but not cutting into your skin. It
should sit lower on the back than in the front and sit comfortably below
the shoulder blades. The back of the bra should not ride up above the bra
line. If it does, adjust the straps. If the bra still rides up, try a smaller
Q. Are the straps adjusted for individual comfort?
A. Straps should be adjusted to give support to the bust without
cutting into the shoulders. If the straps are falling down, you may not
be filling up the cups. Try a smaller cup size.
Q. Do the cups fit smoothly?
A. The cups should be filled out so they fit smoothly. If there are
wrinkles, you may need a smaller cup size. In the case of cotton/spandex
underwire bras, there should be a little excess fabric in the cups to allow
for shrinkage. If there is overflow at the top, under the arms, you should
try a larger cup size.
|Tip: 34D, 36C, and 38B are the same cup size. If the band is not snug enough,
try a smaller band size and larger cup.
Q. Do the underwires completely surround the breast tissue?
A. All pressure should lie on the underwires to support the breasts
without digging in at the sides. Underwires lie flat against the chest.
If the underwire is standing away from the body, suggest a bigger cup size.
Underwires should completely surround the breast tissue to provide support.
