How to Measure QT Intimates Bra Size?
While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, measure around the bottom of the band, directly under your bust. The measuring tape should be level and very snug. Round this measurement to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add four inches. If its odd, add five. Your band size is the sum of this calculation. So, for example, if you measured 32 inches, your band size is 36. If you measured 33 inches, your band size is 38.
Wrap the measuring tape somewhat loosely around the fullest part of your chest (at nipple level). Round this measurement to the nearest whole number. Example 35-3/4 would round to 36. Then subtract your band size from your bust measurement and refer to the chart below. Example: 37 inches (bust)¬34 inches (band) = 3 inches. Thats a 34C.

The correct band size is when you can wear the bra comfortably on the loosest hook (can be tightened as the elastic begins to wear out). It needs to be tight enough that the bra is still fairly supportive without weighing down heavily on the shoulder straps or pinching your back and rib cage too much. Remember to change your cup size if you change band size. For every band size you go down, you must go up by one cup size in order for the cups to remain the same capacity, and vice versa. If the bra is too big around the body requiring an adjustment from a 34B to a 32, try changing to a C cup. Conversely, if you go from a 34B to a 36, try changing to an A cup. You should completely fill out the cup with no wrinkling of the fabric or space in the cups. You should not bulge out anywhere, even in low cut or pushup bras. The bra should be secure under the arm, in the center, and the entire bust should lay within the wire (if the bra has a wire).
Note: These steps are ONLY a guide as some bras you will require a different size depending upon the make, the stretch, and the coverage. You should not regard this as your definitive size until you have tried on a several different bras.
