You’ll need a measuring tape to do your measurements. Write down the outcome. You will need two numbers to determine your bra size.

Whatever age you are, getting the right bra size is the first step before trying and buying a bra.

It’s not difficult to determine your bra size at home. Of course, you can ask someone to help you or get a bra fitting in a lingerie store.

It’s important to measure regularly. Your body and breasts may change in size over time. Also see Teen bras and sizing at Marks & Spencer
