We have all heard before that 80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra and apart from the lack of experienced and fully trained fitters in the industry another one of the reasons is the inconsistency in cup and back sizes across each brand.
You could be an E cup in one brand and an F cup in another.
The best way for us to eliminate the guess work is for you to pop in for a personal fitting. If this is impossible however, please contact us and provide a list of the brands and sizes you are currently wearing along with providing a photo of you in it.

So how do bra sizes actually work?
The most common misconception is how cup sizes and band sizes work together.
Did you know that the volume of the cup actually changes with the band size?
The following cups are the same size: 8F, 10E, 12DD, 14D.
When the band size changes the cup size changes with it. an example is, if you are a 12D and the cup size feels great but the band is too loose you should try a 10DD.
Each manufacturer usually has a different size bra chart and fit will vary considerably depending on your shilouette... its not simply a case of one size fits all, nor should it be!
The three of us here at Bravista very rarely use tape measures any more because of the huge variances in standard sizes although we do have these if you would like to be fitted this way.
Just like a pair of great jeans it pays to know your brand.
