Bra Size Calculator India: How to measure your bra size using Zivame Fitcode

Calculate your bra size

Most women find it difficult to find the right fitting bra. It’s crucial to find the right bra size because wearing an ill-fitting bra can result in a host of problems. If your bra doesn’t fit well, it can make your body shape look awkward and unflattering. It can also cause bad posture and give you back aches.

It’s very crucial to understand your size before buying a bra of any kind. If you think the bras you wear now are not comfortable, then you’re probably wearing the wrong size.

It's no secret that wearing the wrong bra size can be uncomfortable and painful. Ill-fitted bras can also make our breasts look unnatural, thus spoiling the look of our outfits. Bras that are too tight may squeeze the breasts together, and cause difficulty in breathing. Bras that are too loose may not hold the breasts in place thus resulting in sagging and bouncing. Ill-fitted bras can also cause other health problems like back, neck, and shoulder pain, breast skin damage, bad posture, deep grooves on shoulders, nerve damage, and more. That's why we need to know our perfect bra size so that we can stay comfortable.

We wear bras almost daily for long hours, and hence it’s important to choose a good-fitting bra. Most of us are always confused about how to find a bra size. Well, this isn’t difficult at all because The Fitcode can help with finding the right bra size.

  • Note the number in centimeters
  • Got a decimal? Round it up to the nearest whole number i.e. Consider 84.5cm as 85cm

How to Measure Bra Size

We can follow these steps to measure our cup size and bust size:

How to measure band size:

When it comes to finding our perfect bra size, the first step is to measure our band size or underbust size. This is the measurement around the ribcage, just below the bust. To measure this, we'll need a soft measuring tape and a mirror. Few things to keep in mind,

  • Wear a non-padded bra or no bra at all.
  • Stand up straight and wrap the measuring tape around your ribcage, just below the bust.
  • A snug fit is ideal, but not too tight — we should be able to breathe comfortably.
  • Make a note of the length in inches or centimetres.

The bra size calculator cm measurement will help us when using a the Zivame Fitcode to find our size. Our underbust measurement determines our band size. Keep in mind that bra sizes can vary between brands and styles, so it's always a good idea to try on a few different sizes to see what feels most comfortable. Knowing our correct bra size is essential to ensure comfort, support, and the right fit.

How to measure bust size:

We need to wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of our bust, making sure that the tape is level with our nipples. Record this measurement in inches.

How to measure cup size:

Once we have our band size, and our bust size we’ll need to measure our cup size to find our complete bra size. This involves subtracting our bust size from our band size. For example, if our bust measurement is 36 inches and our band size is 34 inches, the difference between the two is 2 inches. The difference in inches corresponds to our cup size, using the following chart:

  • 0-1 inch: AA cup
  • 1-2 inches: A cup
  • 2-3 inches: B cup
  • 3-4 inches: C cup
  • 4-5 inches: D cup
  • 5-6 inches: DD or E cup
  • 6-7 inches: DDD or F cup
  • 7-8 inches: G cup
  • 8-9 inches: H cup

According to the bra size chart, a difference of 2 inches corresponds to a B cup size. So, our complete bra size would be 34B.

Measuring our bra size can seem daunting at first, but with Zivame we can find our perfect fit in no time. So, let's go ahead and give it a try to find our perfect bra size.We can use their chart to determine our size based on our band and cup size.

How to know if a bra fits perfectly?

What the right cup fit looks like:

    problems with bra cup fitting
  • The cups should sit snug on the breasts.
  • If your breasts are spilling out of the cup from the side or from the top, your bra cups are probably too small for your breasts. Consider increasing your bra cup size.
  • If there is a gap between the cup and your breasts or if the fabric of the bra is wrinkling in places, it means that the cup is too loose. In this case, you can consider reducing your cup size.

What the right band fit looks like:

    problems with band fitting
  • The bra band should form a straight line around the body.
  • If the band is arching at the back, the band of your bra is probably too loose. Try wearing the bra on a tighter hook. If that doesn’t work, you have to decrease your band size and increase your cup size letter. For example, if you are currently using 34B, you can try 32C.
  • If your band is digging into your skin and causing redness or marks, then your band is probably too tight. Try wearing the bra on a looser hook. If that doesn’t work, you have to increase your band size and decrease your cup size letter. For example, if you are currently using 34B, you can try 36A.

What the right straps fit looks like:

    problems with strap fitting
  • The straps should sit comfortably on the shoulder, it shouldn't be too tight or slip off the shoulder.
  • If the bra strap is falling off, tighten the straps. If that doesn’t work, try using a bra style where the bra straps are narrow such as multiway bras or full coverage bras.
  • If the bra strap is too tight, loosen the straps. If that doesn't work, chances are that the bra band is too loose and it is not giving your breasts the support it needs. Try using a smaller band size.

Here are some FAQs about bras

    Measure your bra size again if you have gone through any of these changes or get a fitting done once a year. If you feel that your bra is not comfortable anymore, you can get a fit consultation at the Zivame stores or find your bra size by yourself using the bra size calculator.

  8. What is the best bra to wear?
  9. The best bra style for a woman depends on her breast shape and the bra size.

    If your breasts are full and round shaped, then you should wear bras which have high coverage to prevent the breasts from spilling out of the bra cups.

    If you are on the curvy side with bra sizes bigger than D cup, then you can try minimiser bras or super support bras which are designed to give curvy women the right support. If your breasts are sagging, then you can try our No Sag bras to give your breasts just a little bit of lift.

  16. Is 34 or 36 a bigger bra size?
  17. First things first, let's establish that bra sizes are made up of two parts: the band size (measured in inches) and the bra cup size (designated by letters). Now, when it comes to comparing a 34 and a 36 bra size, we're talking about the band size, which is part of the bra that wraps around our rib cage. If we're talking about the band size alone, then a 36 is technically bigger than a 34. However, cup size also comes into play here. If we're comparing a 34B to a 36A, then the 34B has a larger cup size. But if we're comparing a 34B to a 36C, then the 36C has a larger cup size and a larger band size. The best way to figure out our correct size is to check a bra size calculator in India, available online. Most lingerie brands have an online bra calculator that we can check to find our correct bra size. We must use the calculators online before we pick our bra.

  18. Is bra size B or C bigger?
  19. When comparing bra cup sizes, a C cup is typically larger than a B cup. But we must not worry or get confused because the Fitcode by Zivame can help us find our perfect fit! There are numerous online options available, but Zivame's bra size calculator for Indian bodies is the best when it comes to precision and accuracy. We must keep in mind that a well-fitting bra not only looks good but also feels good! Hence, it’s important to always choose a bra that fits us perfectly.

  20. What is the smallest bra size?
  21. The smallest bra size might range from a 28AA to a 30A depending on the brands we want to buy. Using the Fitcode to determine the ideal fit is simple. After finding the ideal fit, no matter what size we are looking for, we can feel confident and at ease with the right-sized bra.

  22. What is the most common bra size in India?
  23. This would be difficult to tell. It’s important for women to always measure themselves correctly before picking the right bra. If we’re wondering how to measure bra size, a bra calculator will help us out. We must be sure to always check a bra calculator when choosing a bra online.
