How to Take Measurements For Custom Lingerie?

You will need a tape measure, if you don't have one you can download and print this document to assemble one.

Bust

This is taken around the fullest part of your bust. Don't pull the tape measure too tight - just so it fits snugly.

Underbust

If you need a bra size, you'll also need to get your underbust. This is taken around your ribcage just under your breasts.

Bra Size

1) The first measurement to take is the underbust (please see above). Now add 5 to this number. If the resulting band size was an odd number, you will need to round up to the next even number since bra bands only come in even numbers. ex.: 28 + 5 = 33 so your band size is 34.

2) The second measurement is taken around the fullest part of your breasts with your favorite bra on - usually the measuring tape should go over your nipples. Next subtract your band size from your cup size to calculate the right cup size. Refer to the bra cup size chart below. 36 - 34 = 3 so your cup size is C. Your bra size is therefore 34C.

Measurement 2 is 1 larger than measurement 1: Cup size A
Measurement 2 is 2 larger than measurement 1: Cup size B
Measurement 2 is 3 larger than measurement 1: Cup size C
Measurement 2 is 4 larger than measurement 1: Cup size D
Measurement 2 is 5 larger than measurement 1: Cup size E
Measurement 2 is 6 larger than measurement 1: Cup size F

Waist

Your waist measurement reflects the narrowest part of your waist. For most women, this is about an inch above your belly button.

Low Waist

Measure approximately 2 below the natural waistline or 2 fingers below the navel. Usually you can feel your hipbones right where the measuring tape is.

Hips

Your hip measurement, reflects the fullest part of your hips, so is roughly the area you sit on.

Some Tips
  • If you can ask a friend to help you, as it often makes taking measurements easier.
  • Don't think that you "can't be" a certain size in the cup or band just because you think it represents something bad. Always wear the size that fits you best and is most comfortable. That's also the size that will make you look the best!
  • Be aware that your measurements may change through out the day. For example, we all gain some inches around our waist after a meal.
  • Hip measurement doesn't refer to where your hip bones are. It refers to the fullest part of your hips.
