Customizable Sizing from Queen of Cups Lingerie
Have you ever been trying on bras and wished you could take the band from one bra, the cups from another, and put them together? Us too.
That's why we offer customizable bra sizing. You choose your cup size and band size, and we make the bra for you when you order it.
You can watch our sizing video, or read on below if you prefer words.
Finding Your Bra Size
Traditional store sizing can be inaccurate and differs between lingerie brands, or even between styles in a brand.
We use a few different numbers to differentiate your size. If you're looking to purchase a customizable bra from us, you need to know:
- Your true ribcage (underbust) measurement
- Your full bust measurement
- Your cup volume measurement
Your True Ribcage or Underbust Measurement
With a sewist's measuring tape, measure around your naked body just below the bottom of your breasts. Make sure your tape is not twisted. Take a few breaths, in and out, and take your measurement with the tape snug to your body but not too tight. It's always best if someone else can do the measurement for you.
This measurement is your ribcage or underbust measurement. For example, it could be 39".
Your Full Bust Measurement
Wearing your best fitting bra (not a sports bra or a padded bra!), measure around your body at the fullest part of your bust. Hold the tape against your body, but not tightly. Just like with your underbust measurement, you want to breathe in and out a few times and make sure you aren't holding your breath.
Your Cup Volume Measurement
Instead of a letter, we use the volume of the lower part of the breast as a measurement. It's easiest to do this in your best fitting bra; however, if you don't have one, or there is padding in your bra, you may want to measure without a bra on.
Your cup volume is measured from where you breast meets your chest directly underneath your nipple, right up to your nipple, or where the widest, fullest part of your breast. It's really important not to push into the breast tissue - just let the measuring tape curve to your body, because this is a curved measurement. Try it with your best fitting bra on, and on your naked body. Leaning forward helps if you're trying it without a bra on! Don't forget to measure both sides.
