Simple Tips To Properly Measure Your Maternity Bra Size

Need help figuring out your breastfeeding/nursing bra size? No problem! Just follow these simple steps.

First, you'll need a flexible measuring tape to measure the distance. Don't worry if you get an odd number, just round up to the nearest even number. Now, let's get started!

Step 1: Measure Your Band Size. Wrap the measuring tape snugly around your ribcage, right under your bust. Again, if you get an odd number, just round up to the nearest even number. For example, if you measure as a 31", your rib size is 32". And if you don't have a measuring tape, no worries - just use a string or shoelace and then measure it with a tape measure.

Step 2: Measure Your Cup Size. Take a loose measurement around the fullest part of your breast, typically around the nipple. If needed, round up to the nearest inch. Keep in mind that after giving birth, your milk may come in and your breasts may be half to a full cup size larger for a few days. Example: 36" cup size

Step 3: Calculate Your Bra Size. Simply subtract your band size from your bust size, and then use the difference to find your cup size on the bra size.

Example: Band 32", Cup 36"- 4" cup size is a D cup. Mannequin size is 32D
