    Default Have you checked your bra size recently?

    http://www.sophisticatedpair.com/bracalculator.htm

    Above the most accurate bra size calculator available online. It will show your bra size in UK or US sizes. Basically, the UK cup size is the same as it would be in Aust sizes... with 32 being a size 10, 34 a 12, 36 a 14, etc.

    So many women wear the wrong size... usually a much-too-big band size and therefore a smaller cup size to compensate.

    Get some measuring tape and give the calculator a go... how did you measure up? Same as you're wearing, or heaps different?

    I did this ages back when Bras n Things (notoriously bad at measuring) tried to tell me I was some size that totally didn't fit in any way at all (16C... yet wearing size 12 clothes and C? Yeah, just no...). Calc said I was 34FF, therefore a 12FF... found one (miraculously!) and gave it a go. Yep, perfect.

    So... how do you measure up?!

    This site said 10e other Australian sites have given me anywhere from 12c, 14b, to 10f.....now I'm more confused.

    I know a 12 fits in some brands and others I need a 10 so they don't ride up....but I can never find the right cup to be comfortable.

    Unfortunately this method doesnt work for me as my boobs are *ahem* not natural

    Also UK sizing isnt the same as Aus sizing. Here is a good bra size converter website

    14DD for me! I thought I was only a D cup. It often depends on the brand of bra as well I have found

    Subbing to remind myself to measure tomorrow. Bras n things told me 10E but the band seems a bit bunchy in places so curious to see what this says.

    it says I'm a 10B

    I was pre pregnancy but I end up with quad-boob if I wear those again.

    I have small boobs yes - but they are wider, so anything smaller than a C cup is very uncomfortable for me!
