For bra garments, you will be asked to take an under bust measurement. Place the tape under you breast where your bra band normally sits. Measure the circumference of your body making sure the tape does’t droop at the back. If wearing an underwire bra, please take it off before measuring
Just like our body garments, surgical bras are not measured like regular bras. Basically, we require only an under bust measurement (where your bra band normally sits under your bust), as well as an indication of your preferred cup size post surgery.
The band size will not change post surgery but the cup size will of course! If you are having breast augmentation and are hoping for a “D” cup. then choose an “E” cup in those bras that offer different cup sizes.
Many of our post-surgery bras are one cup size and will fit up to an “E” cup. If you intend to go larger, then choose the next band size up. It’s the same if you are having breast reduction, lift or reconstruction. Always remember to allow for swelling.
As you can see from the picture, the under bust measurement required is taken where your bra band normally sits under your bust.
Make sure the tape measure sits evenly around your body and doesn’t droop at the back.
