Sizing and Fitting

How to measure yourself for a bra

Research says that most of the women are wearing the wrong size bra.  ME personally think every woman should take a considerable amount of time, maybe more than a few minutes, to find out the mechanism of wearing the right size bra. 

Take Ursule Wong as an example, she used to think that she was a 32A and wore the wrong size for 10 odd years and she had always been caught adjusting the wrong fitted bra.  Finding the correct size gives you comfort and ease and that saves you from time to time embarrassment of adjusting your bra.  ME would say this is a simple etiquette that needs to be learned by every woman.

*This is only a measuring guide reference.  It cannot guarantee a perfect measure of bra size!

Measure your band size.

Determine the band length.

Please wear t-shirt or even wear underwear only for the sake of accuracy.  Place a measuring tape all the way around your body underneath your breasts and take the measure in inches.  Make sure the tape is horizontal and fairly snug. 

27" rib cage + 5 = 32" band size
28" rib cage + 4 = 32" band size
29" rib cage + 5 = 34" band size
30" rib cage + 4 = 34" band size
31" rib cage + 5 = 36" band size
32" rib cage + 4 = 36" band size
33" rib cage + 5 = 38" band size

So your band size is quite easy to determine.

Measure your cup size.

Now, place the tape measure around the fullest point of your bust, parallel to the floor and make sure the tape is not too tight.

Then use your measurements of your bust minus the band size, the bust and back difference will give you the bra cup size.

Bust – Band = cup size

Bust & Back Difference Bra Cup Size
0" A
1" B
2" C
3" D
4" DD
5" E
6" F
7" FF
8" G

 Although this is the "universal" measurement, but there are a few things that must put into consideration.

*Most European and American bra cups are usually larger than Asians, therefore, me Me & ME bra cups are designed to fit Asian girls.

 *As everyone is different, breast shapes and sizes might vary slightly across culture.  

In conclusion, for most people, the band size is relatively simple to measure but you have to be aware of the cup size.


Knowing your bra size without a measuring tape

The MORE accurate way to determine your size is to use your current bra as a starting point.

These are few points to help you determine you are wearing the wrong size bra:

        1. The band, is it too loose?

            If the back is riding up, it means that you need to size it down

            If your bra is too tight, your flesh will be sticking out, you have to go for a larger band.

            A perfect band size means that the bra is parallel to the floor, doesn't ride up or make your flesh stick out.  A snugly fit band.

        2.  The underwire, is it comfortable around your breast?

            The underwire in your bra should NOT be poking or pinching you in anyway.   If that's the case, this indicates that you need to go a cup size larger


As a bra user, we also think it is useful to know the cup size table.  

If you are a 36A, which means that your cup size is same as 34B, 32C and 30D.

怎去量度你胸圍的尺碼

要穿對胸圍真的非常重要,很值得花一點點時間去研究自己的胸圍的是甚麼大細與及怎才是正確地穿胸圍。 針對自己來說,我穿了32A多年而瞢然不知原來是穿錯杯的大小。難怪朋友經常阻止我調較我的胸圍。 最好就是避免這些尷尬,而這些基本的禮儀是每個女生也應該懂得的。

25" rib cage + 5 = 30" band size
26" rib cage + 4 = 30" band size

(由於市面實在太少30的band size,30 band size的,都是穿32",穿扣時要穿最緊的那個便可。)

27" rib cage + 5 = 32" band size
28" rib cage + 4 = 32" band size
29" rib cage + 5 = 34" band size
30" rib cage + 4 = 34" band size
31" rib cage + 5 = 36" band size
32" rib cage + 4 = 36" band size
33" rib cage + 5 = 38" band size

正確找出 band 的尺碼 很重要,因為,cup 的大小是以 band 的尺碼去量度。

第二步:

找你胸部第大小,亦所謂的cup size!

度完胸下的尺寸,度胸的乳暈位置,由於地心吸力的道理,女仕的胸部怎都會微微向下垂,要準確地量度,最要是穿着最薄的胸圍去度。

度了胸最豐滿的位置,(軟尺不能太緊,給大概一吋的空間)。

由於亞州人的體型,面型,各方面都比較扁,背脊的肉相對比較薄,亦考慮到始終每個人的胸型有異,有些屬於八字,有些胸骨或肋骨比較橫,也會影響cup size 的大小;也有些B cup屬於比較多肉,但又未足夠去到C cup,也因為舒適建議穿C。所以這個表的標準也屬參考,因為還要考慮到乳暈的差距等等因素。


Band - Bust = Cup Size

Bust & Back Difference Bra Cup Size
0" A
1" B
2" C
3" D
4" DD
5" E
6" F
7" FF
8" G

*始終,每個胸型在不同種族也有異,如衣服一樣,一個同size的胸圍,兩個也是同碼的人穿出來的效果一定有點差異。

還有,穿着的時候要留意以下的一些着點

第一:如果,胸圍的鋼圈有點「硬」胸部,拿就是說你要穿大一個cup size。
第二:胸圍應該跟的下成水平線,如果被扯得太高,證明大一個 band size 才適合你。
