Before we get started, a couple things to note.
Breasts come in various shapes, sizes, and densities. Our first run of bras have a combination of diagonal and horizontal seaming, which tend to be very flattering for many breast types, but not all.
To use this method, you must start with your band size first. Once you have that, you’re ready to begin here.
Our size range will be expanding, so if you don’t find your numbers on the charts below, please contact us if you’re interested in a custom bra.
Most lingerie brands will measure the circumference of your full bust, under bust, and high bust. This is not the most accurate way to measure. The breast should be measured in volume, not in linear measurements. Unfortunately, we haven’t figured out how to measure the volume, so we’re doing the next best thing.
For the cups, we will measure across the breast horizontally and vertically. While these are still linear measurements, they will give us a better starting point.
You will need a tape measure. Be sure to wear your best fitting, unpadded bra to measure.
1. Measure the Vertical Apex
Measure from top of breast mound, directly over apex, to inframammary fold (underneath breast).
2. Measure the Horizontal Apex
Measure from side of breast, across the apex, to the front chest center where the breast tissue ends.
Now that you have the band and corresponding cup sizes, you’ll be better informed when ordering a La Bella Coppia bra.
