- US Sizing vs. UK Sizing
While US and UK bra sizes might appear similar at first glance, there are some subtle differences between the two systems. The most notable distinction lies in the cup sizes as UK sizes often include double letters (such as FF or GG), which US sizes do not use. To convert your UK DD+ bras to a US size, you may need to go up one or two cup sizes.
- European Sizing
European bra sizes differ significantly from both US and UK sizing. The band size in European bras is measured in centimeters, while US and UK sizes use inches. To convert your European bra size to a US or UK size, you’ll need to convert the band size from centimeters to inches and then adjust the cup size accordingly. European cup sizes also progress differently, typically increasing in 2-centimeter increments rather than the 1-inch increments used in US and UK sizing.
- Australian and New Zealand Sizing
Australian and New Zealand bra sizes are similar to UK sizing, although there can be some slight variations between brands. As a general rule, you can use your UK size as a starting point when shopping for bras in Australia or New Zealand. However, it’s essential to try on bras and consult with a knowledgeable fitter to ensure the perfect fit.
