How to Find the Perfect Bra Size?

Do you know that nearly 80% of Indian women wear incorrectly-sized or ill-fitting bras? Such bras ruin your look, and more importantly, fail to give you the much-needed support and comfort. If you wear a wrong-sized bra, its straps can dig into your skin, or slip off your shoulders. Ill-fitting bras can also lead to chest or back pain in the long run. 

Shyaway understands the importance of wearing bras of the correct size because it keeps women’s comfort and well-being in mind. That’s why we have come up with the online bra size calculator, which helps you find the perfect bra!

Therefore, using this simple bra size guide, you can easily and quickly find your bra size. Let’s see how to do that!

Bra Size/Fitting Checklist

If your bra is of the right size and fit, all its parts will also be perfect and fit you well so that you feel comfortable. We provide you with a bra checklist that describes how exactly the parts of a well-fitting bra of the right size should be. Take a look!


The cups must not be too tight or too loose. In case they are too tight, you will find red marks on your skin. If they are too loose, your breasts might sag. However, if you wear a well-fitting bra, you can avoid both of these problems.

Centre Gore

This is the section between the cups. In the right-sized bra, the centre gore will be flat.

Front and Back Straps

The straps should not fall off the shoulders. Straps that are too tight will leave marks on the shoulders or at the back. A well-fitting bra can help you avoid both these problems.

Hook-and-Eye Closure

When you wear a brand-new bra, the outermost hook-and-eye closure should give you a snug fit and make you feel comfortable.

Underwire (For Wired Bras)

The underwires must not poke into the skin or cause any discomfort.

Underband and Sideband

The underband must sit flat and parallel to the breasts. The sideband should be broad enough to avoid breast spillage.

Ring and Slider

The straps of a bra contain the ring and slider. In a bra with adjustable straps, the rings should allow proper length adjustments. The sliders should also help with the adjustments.

Bra Sister Size Calculator

If you don’t find a bra of your exact size, you can go for sister sizing.

Sister Size Up

Suppose your bra size is 36B, your “sister-size up” will be 38A (a band size higher and a cup size lower).

Sister Size Down

For the same size - 36B, your “sister-size down” will be 34C (a band size lower and a cup size higher).

FAQs About Bra Size Calculator and Bra Size Measurement

Why do you add 4 inches to your band size?

You can determine your bra band size by adding four inches to your band size. Subtract your bust size from your acquired bra band size to get your cup size. For example, if your band size is 30 inches and your bust size is 36 inches, adding four to the band size (4 + 30) gives 34 inches.

Subtracting bust size from band size (36 - 34) gives 2 inches. This 2-inch represents the letter B as cup size.

What are cup sizes A, B, C, and D?

Bras are available in different sizes. Letters A, B, C, and D denote cup sizes. Numbers like 32, 34, 36, and 38 are measurements of underbust called band size. The cup size indicates the volume of the bust and as the letters increase,  the cup size also increases.
Example: Bra size 34B indicates that your boob is a B cup and your bra is 34 inches around.

Will the bra increase breast size?

No, a bra will not cause or prevent breast growth. It is determined by a woman’s genes and hormones, not by her bra. Wearing the correct size bra makes you feel more at ease. A smaller bra causes breast pain due to compression, while a larger bra provides insufficient support and causes saginess and bouncing.

What happens if you wear the wrong size?

Wearing the wrong bra sizes leads to the following health issues, including

  • Breast tissue pain and discomfort
  • Backache, neckache and headache
  • Poor posture. Your bra restricts your posture
  • No proper support for your breasts

Can the Bra size calculator be used for all types of bras?

Yes, the Bra size calculator is versatile and suitable for various bra styles, including sports bras, push-up bras, padded bras, and everyday bras.

Which bra size is larger, 34 or 36?

First, bra sizes consist of two components: the bra cup size (represented by letters) and the band size (measured in cm or inches). Now, a 36 is larger than a 34 if we only discuss the band size.

But there's another factor to consider here: cup size. The 34B has a bigger cup size than the 36A if we are comparing the two. However, the 36C has a larger band size and a larger cup size when compared to the 34B. The most accurate method for determining our actual size is to use the Shyaway Bra size calculator.

When should you switch to a smaller size bra?

If you experience a lot of bouncing, breast spillage, or gaping inside the cups, you must switch to a smaller-size bra. Read the signs you need a smaller size bra for better clarity.

How do you know when to go up a bra size?

If you experience spillage, lack support, and have discomfort with the underwire, you may need a bigger size bra. Read the signs you're ready to buy a bigger bra size to know more.

What are clear signs that the bra centre gore doesn’t fit you?

  • The band is too big.
  • The cup might be too small.
  • You may be wearing the wrong style of bra.
