Avocouture – Sizes & Styles

Band Measurement (underbust)

First measure around your body right under your breasts where the bra band sits. Pull the measuring tape tight, remember to measure while you’re exhaling. Make sure the measuring tape is placed horizontally. Don’t be afraid to squeeze: remember that the bra is flexible and the measuring tape is not. Subtract 5 from the obtained result and round the new result to the nearest size. 

For example:
The measurement result is 79 cm. We calculate:
79 – 5 = 74, which we round to 75
75 is the first part of your size.

Find the result in the first column of the size chart.

Bust circumference (cup) 

Put on your favorite bra. Measure around the fullest point of your bust, making sure the measuring tape is horizontal. This time, don’t squeeze, measure yourself loosely. Find the measurement result or the closest value to it in the column row corresponding to the previously calculated circumference under the breasts. 

For example: The measurement result is 101 cm. In the first row of the table we find the letter corresponding to the size of the cup. Here it is G. If you hesitate between two sizes, we advise you to choose the larger one.

Does the bra fit well? 

Put on your bra. Arrange the breasts neatly in the cups. Don’t “stuff” them. Make sure that nothing is hidden under the underwires, under the armpits, etc. Adjust the straps – they should be slightly tight, they must not slip or stick into the arm. Make a few sudden movements: bend down, stretch your arms up, jump a few times, run for a while in place.

If the underwires lie flat on the breastbone and surround the breast perfectly, also under the armpit, the band lies still, more or less at the height of the bottom edge of the bra, and the line of the breast is smooth, without any “buns”,  you have a perfectly matched bra.

If the band goes up, be sure to reach for a narrower one.
A bra that is too loose will not support the bust well.

If the band slips off, it sticks painfully into the body, prevents you from taking a deep breath, leaves a blue streak, you definitely need a looser bra. A bra that is too tight is uncomfortable and unhealthy. It is not the best idea to wait for the band to stretch.

If your breasts do not fill the cups fully, the fabric curls and comes off, even when you shorten the straps, and your breasts are not supported enough, try a smaller cup. A bit of slack will not hurt, but definitely too large a bra does not do its job.

If your breasts are pouring out of the cups at the top and / or sideways, the underwires are not on the breastbone but on the breastbone, you definitely need a bigger cup!
Too small cups can distort the breasts, and the underwires can painfully squeeze them.
