Which size to choose
The easiest way to get the right size is to ask for professional help in a store. Most places are happy to help and it won’t cost you anything.
The fitting test – Sit down and stand up while wearing the bra. If there’s no discomfort like pinching straps, bunching or sliding your right on track.
Try to find a bra that fits when you use the middle row of hooks in the back. That way there’s room to grow and to slim down.
If you have large breasts make sure your nursing bra has extra support.
How to measure
Band size – Measure around your back, under the armpits but above your breasts.
Cup size – Measure around your back, under the armpits and around the center of the breast. Be sure to measure at the fullest part. Subtract band size from breast size to get the cup size.
Example – Band size 36, breast size 38 = 2 inches cup size. Each inch corresponds to a letter, A, B, C, D and so forth. In this example we have the size 36B. Choose the bigger one if you end up in between two sizes.
