# How are bra cup measurements determined?

I know you measure around your chest for the size, but what about the cup size?

If odd, add 5 inches. For cup size, measure the fullest part of your bust. To calculate the cup size, subtract your chest measurement from your cup measurement. Each inch difference is 1 cup size.

Start with the measurement around your chest and then measure around the top of your ribcage. The difference between these measurements determines your cup size. For example, 1 inch difference means you have an A cup. and 2 inch is a B-cup and so on.
