I noticed a lot of the reviews for Kwik Sew bras mention the lack of direction on how to pick band size and cup size. I just ran across this on their website and thought it would be helpful. I'm surprised they wouldn't include the information in the pattern!

***************************************************
Bra Size
To choose the correct size pattern, measure under the bust and add 4 (10 cm) to this measurement. For example if you measure 32 (81 cm) your size is 36.

To determine the cup size, measure around the fullest part of the bust. Now measure around the body above the bust. Subtract this measurement from the full bust measurement. Every 1 (2.5 cm) difference is one cup size. For example, if the difference is 1 (2.5 cm), choose cup size A. If the difference is 2 (5 cm), choose cup size B and 3 (7.5 cm), choose cup size C.

Thanks for that! It really is quite ridiculous that the patterns don't say - I guess that's why all the reviewers mention it.

This is the way to figure out your RTW bra size, too.
Start with the ribcage measurement, and add 4 or 5 to get an even number for your band size. For your cup size, subtract your high bust measurement from your full bust measurements. This gives you a place to *start* with a bra fitting.
