Some band measurement methods require a woman to measure her torso immediately under her breasts and add either 4 inches (10 cm) or 5 inches (13 cm) to the measurement to obtain an even band size offered by manufacturers. These methods are suitable for women who wear an A, B, C, or D cup bra. Other current band measurement methods do not require adding to the measurement: the band size is simply the measured torso circumference in inches or (if that measurement is odd) 1 inch (2.5 cm) larger.. Larger-breasted women will obtain less-accurate results and have a harder time finding a well-fitting bra.
The cup size can be determined by calculating the difference between the bust size and the band size. The bust size, bust line measure, or over-bust measure is the measurement around the women's torso over the fullest part of the breasts, with the crest of the breast halfway between the elbow and shoulder,. usually over the nipples. ideally while standing straight with arms to the side and wearing a properly fitted bra.. This practice assumes the woman's current bra fits her correctly. The measurements are made in the same units as the band size, either inches or centimetres. The cup size is calculated by subtracting the band size from the over-the-bust measurement..
