It is important to measure yourself each time you are considering purchasing a new bra. Remember, your bra size can change due to age, diet or exercise. To determine your bra size follow the instructions shown below:

Now measure from the middle of your chest to the centre of your spine, but this time over the fullest part of your remaining breast (diagram B). 

Double this figure to get your overbust measurement.

Cup size:
