I was just looking on the Victoria Secret site since I'm in need of some new bras. I've NEVER been happy with any bras I've bought and I've never bought any online so I thought I'd check out their measurement section before making my decision. Now I'm confused... They state to measure your band size by 'Hold the tape measure around your back at band level. Then bring it to the front, just above your bust. The resulting number is your band size. Hint: If the number is odd, round down to the closest even number.' I always thought you measured your band size by measuring around your body where the band sits. Not up at that wierd angle. If this is correct, no wonder I was never happy with my bras - wrong size LOL They also state for bust measurement to 'Measure completely around the fullest part of your bust (at nipple level). This is your bust measurement. if this measurement falls on the 1/2 inch, round up.' I thought you were supposed to add 4 or something, or was it subtract. Shoot I had my notes from years ago SOMEWHERE....I know there was a calculation that involved other numbers.... Here are their final calculations... CUP SIZE Subtract the band size (step 1) from the bust measurement (step 2). This number equates to the letter of your cup size. Bust Measurement - Band Size = Cup Size. For example, if your bust measurement is 36" and your band size is 34, you wear a B Cup. difference 0 inches = AA, 1 inch = A, 2 inches = B, 3 inches = C, 4 inches = D etc.... Does this sound right to you? Is this how you measure for YOUR bra size?
