Not sure of your bra size? Or perhaps you haven't been measured for a while? Use our handy, easy-to-follow guide below to work out your bra band and cup size.
To get started, you'll need a soft tape measure, make sure you've got some soft cup (non-padded) underwear on and we recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror for ease.
Step 1. Band Size
Measure underneath the very bottom of your bra, across your ribs, around the entire circumference of your body. The tape measure should lay flat on your skin, not on top of any underwire or elastic at the bottom of the bra and make sure the tape is snugly pulled and not twisted.
This measurement is your band size. In the UK we measure in inches. If the number you measured is odd (31, 33 etc) then add one to round up to the nearest even number (32, 34 etc).
Step 2. Cup Size
Measure over the fullest part of your bust - this is usually across the nipples. Again, make sure the tape lies snug without pulling too tight, and make sure the tape isn't twisted.
Make a note of this number. Again, in the UK we measure in inches.
Step 3. Calculating your Cup Size
To calculate your UK cup size, simply subtract your band size figure (step 1) from your cup size figure (step 2). Broadly speaking, for every inch difference, your cup increases by a cup size.
Please be aware that bra size and fit can vary significantly by brand. However the above method should provide a useful indication of your size and help you to understand which D&B Muse Measurement you are.
We've developed our unique Muse Measurement sizing system to offer a comfortable, sleek and sculpting fit, whatever your shape or size.
We know that no two “size 12” bodies are the same, so our sizing is tailored to three different body shapes:
Step One: Pick your usual UK dress size from 8-20.
Step Two: Pick your bust size based on our Muse Measurements system:
|BRA CUP SIZE||AA - B||C - E||F - HH|
So if you typically wear a UK size 14 and wear a 34A bra, you’d order a 14 Hepburn. Likewise if you’re a UK size 10 and wear a 30F bra, you’d order a 10 Hendricks.
All our pieces are designed to offer stretch. However, if you’re in between sizes we recommend sizing up.
If you are very long in the body, we also recommend going up a dress size to offer additional length.
Our Swimbras & Swim Crops are designed to fit snugly so that you feel 100% secure as you move. We have developed a precise Bikini Sizing System to help you identify your correct size.
|BIKINI TOP SIZING||Cup Size|
Band Size (inches)
|26-28||8 Hepburn||8 Monroe||8 Hendricks|
|28-30||10 Hepburn||10 Monroe||10 Hendricks|
|30-32||12 Hepburn||12 Monroe||12 Hendricks|
|34-36||14 Hepburn||14 Monroe||14 Hendricks|
|38-40||16 Hepburn||16 Monroe||16 Hendricks|
|42-44||18 Hepburn||18 Monroe||18 Hendricks|
All our knickers come in standard UK dress sizes from size 8 - 18.
We currently offer all bikinis in sizes 8-18 and all swimsuits in sizes 8-20.
We are very aware that our size range is still relatively limited. We’re a small independent brand, and have focused initially on offering a highly comprehensive and effective set of products to women who wear dress sizes 8-20.
However we are very responsive to demand. If you would like to see more sizes in different types of products please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to hear from you.
For example, when we first launched back in June 2017 we tested customer demand for our products in sizes 8-16. So many of you got in touch to say that you were interested in our swimwear but needed larger sizes that within six months we expanded our size range up to UK size 20. We're really listening to you.
