Measuring for a large bra size requires measuring just under the bust, measuring the widest part of the bust and subtracting the two to get the cup size. Find out what bra size will fit with advice from a professional and personal image consultant in this free video on fashion.
Hello, my name is Gabriela Garzon at G.G. Image & Etiquette Consulting in Miami, Florida. In this clip, I'm going to talk about how to measure a large bra size. Well I'm going to explain it on myself even though I don't have a large bra size. But the first thing that you girls have to do is you're going to find a tape measurement that will measure all around your area, OK? So once you know the measure that you have under your bust, you're going to know exactly what is your band, meaning if it's a 34, a 32, a 36, you know because it's basically the size of your back. Then after you know that, you're going to measure the widest or the largest part of your bust which will be on top so you're going to measure it will be like around this area right here, you're going to measure all around it, OK? And you're going to subtract this number from this number. So basically whatever number you get from your subtraction, it's going to be your cup size. So if you girls have a large bra size, your cup size should be anywhere between C, D, double D's so be very aware of the number that you get from here to here and also you need to know that depending on the stores that you go to, the department stores or anything, it will be a slight difference on the brands and on the stores you go to. Now when you actually do measure, you need to make sure when you have a large bra if you can see this is a big cup type of bra, that this part here because you have a large bust, it needs to cover this area so you don't have anything hanging out of the bra. You need to make sure that whatever bra you choose does not make you come out of the bra. That will be the perfect size for a large bra size. Once again this is Gabby Garzon at G.G.
