No two size 14s are the same. Using our ground-breaking inclusive sizing system, our swimwear is tailored to hug every beautiful jiggle and curve.
We believe that when you feel incredible, you look incredible.
For AA–B cup busts
For C–E cup busts
For F–HH cup busts
Your D&B size is your UK dress size and your UK bra cup size. So, if you wear a size 14 and your bra is a D cup, then your D&B size is 14 Monroe.
But women's dress sizes are never that simple. Both dress and bra sizes vary from brand to brand, so it's worth taking a few measurements before you buy.
Follow us through the next few steps to find your D&B size.
PS - all our swimwear stretches to hug different body shapes. Have a look at our product descriptions for extra tips on how each swimsuit and bikini fits.
Here are a couple of tips to help you get to the right size:
- Measure yourself in just your knickers and bra (avoid padding, bur underwire is fine).
- Use a fabric tape measure
- Measure yourself in front of a mirror or ask someone to help you so that the tape measure stays parallel with the floor
- Make a note of your measurements in centimetres (cm)
You need four body measurements:
Full bust: measure around the fullest part of your bust (this is usually across the front of your nipples).
Underbust: measure immediately under your bust across your ribs (this is usually where your bra band sits). The tape measure should be snug to your body.
Waist: measure the circumference of your waist at the narrowest point.
Hips: measure the widest part of your bottom half. Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips and across your bottom.
Use your measurements to find your UK dress size (we stock sizes 8-24).
If you are between sizes, you're very long in the body or your measurements don't fall into one dress size band, we usually recommend going up to the larger size. For example, if you have a size 14 waist and size 16 hips, pick a size 16.
All measurements in cm.
Find your dress size in the left hand column. The find the range that your full bust measurement falls into and read down to select your curve size: Hepburn, Monroe or Hendricks.
Now combine your dress size and curve size to get your D&B size. For example, if you measure a size 14 and your full bust is 99cm then your D&B size is 14 Monroe.
All measurements in cm.
Once you've bought your D&B, try it on at home using these tips:
- Unpin the label and keep to one size in case you need to return your item
- Keep your knickers on
- Don't worry if there's a cracking or popping sound as you pull your swimsuit up - this is normal and you're not breaking the swimwear
- Your swimwear should feel snug and supportive without constricting you
- Remember your swimwear will give a little when it gets wet
