Equivalent Bra sizes

1

Every bra size has what I call a “Sister Size” which allows fitters to tweak the fit and ultimately work towards getting the perfect bra size for you.

Beware because this can also allow Fitters to tweak the bra size so it appears to fit however it’s not the perfect fit for you and the bra won’t last you as long.

Why would a Professional Bra Fitter do that?

I would like to think that most Fitters will not do this however it does happen and you really need to be aware of it. For example they may have sold your perfect bra size so they tweak it to the bras sister size and they still get the sale.

Before I tell you all the bra sizes equivalent “sister” sizes you need to understand that with the sister sizes  each bra has 3 cup sizes that are the same and all the varies is the size of the back (the bra band).

TIP

Your band needs to fit snugly on the loosest hook, bra bands stretch quite quickly and to ensure your bra continues to support you the band needs to remain snug. If it fits you on the loosest hook you can tighten it as it stretches. If you buy your bra on the tightest hook it isn’t going to last you as long because it will begin to ride up your back and will not support you. When the back rides up it will not give your breasts any lift.

The Bra Sister Size Chart

To find your bras sister size you do two things

  1. Go UP in the cup and go DOWN in the back
  2. Go DOWN in the cup and go UP in the back

Note: All bra sizes are in Australian Sizes click here for Bra Conversion Chart

  1. [...] bra size while can be accurate it does differ from person to person. Remember that all bras have a “sister size” so if you measure a bra size that doesn’t seem accurate try its sister [...]
