MEASURING FOR COMMERCIAL BRA SIZE

Note: The breasts must be nude when these measurements are taken.

BAND SIZE

1. Wrap the tape measure directly under your breasts, around the rib cage. Measure snugly.
2. Add 5 inches to the rib cage measurement. For example: 31 plus 5 equals 36 inches (78.5 cm plus 12.5 cm equals 91 cm).
3. If the measurement is an odd number (3, 5, 7, etc.), go to the next highest size.

CUP SIZE

1. Measure circumference (front and back) all around and across the fullest point of the breasts (across both tips).
2. Compare the band size to the measurements below. If the difference is:

1 inch (25 mm) or more, use an A cup;
2inches (5 cm) or more, use a B cup;
3 inches (7.5 cm) or more, use a C cup;
4 inches (10 cm) or more, use a D cup.

This is a bit outdated manufacturers changed the way bras where sized but didn't change how we thought to measure them,measure above your breasts just under your arms that is your bra size. Doing it the way you noted my bras are 2 inches too big.
