Finding the Right Size
This first hurdle is by far the most important so you must get it right!
Bra sizes are depicted by a number, which refers to her back size, and a letter, which refers to the size of her boobs in relation to her back. Getting this right is, to be honest, quite a challenge even for women, so rather than even trying to guess what she could be wearing (and potentially causing yourself some issues if you get it drastically wrong!), we highly recommend that you sneak a quick look into her lingerie drawer to find out the magic numbers. Take a look at her most recently purchased bra, and the one that she often wears to get the best idea of her current fit.
In addition to this, if you are buying from a brand that you know she’s a fan of, make sure that you check others from them and go for the same size. This is because individual brands often run slightly differently from one another in both their back sizes and cup sizes, which is, frankly quite annoying, but it’s just one more obstacle that needs contending with!
At Brastop, we stock lingerie in sizes 8 to 24, and our bras run in cup sizes D to K, with back sizes from a 28 to a 46. If your other half wears a cup size from D upwards then you can use the size selector tool at the side of our lingerie category pages which will enable you to filter your choices specifically by her size. It’s also possible to choose colours and styles here for a wonderfully pain-free shopping experience.
