Frequently Asked Questions

This section will grow with the application - we will be happy to provide answers to most frequently asked support questions and tips.

  1. Q: Why does the Bra-fitter give so many sizes? Which one should I try first?
    A: Based on the measurements submitted by you the Bra-fitter determines the size that will most probably fit you best (it is marked by a darkest color on the size chart and is closest to the center of the “size cloud”). This is the size we advice to try first. However, bra-fitting is not an exact science – not all breasts are identical, not all bras are made the same and according to size charts, and not all women use the same measuring technique. This is why it is best to think of your bra size rather as a range of sizes than a single size. If your “best fit” appears not to be perfect, you should try adjacent sizes, as shown.

  2. Q: What are “precision”, “intuition” and “description” views?
    A: In the “precision” view you get a size chart, quite similar to those you can see in shops, online stores or catalogues. The sizes recommended for you are marked in shades of pink. The darkest one is probably your best fit. In the “intuition” view you get a more friendly “size cloud” in which the most recommended sizes are located in the center. You can move the cloud around the size space and see how the range of size changes. You may want to do it i.e. if your personal experience tells you to choose some other size to be your “best fit”. The “description” gives you suggestions as to which of the recommended sizes is best and what size you should try if you encounter any of the basic bra-fitting problems (i.e. band too tight or cups too small).

  3. Q: The band size given by Bra-fitter is smaller, compared to other bra-size calculators or size charts. Why?
    A: Band sizes given by most calculators or charts might be perfectly OK if all women followed the measurement instructions and got the measuring tape tight enough (as they usually don’t) and if the bras were less stretchy. The fact is that most women choose a band size that is too loose and a cup size that is too small. As a result, their breasts do not get a proper support. Most professional bra-fitters nowadays say that after getting the measures done it is usually wise to go down the band size (and up a cup size), especially if you are larger-busted. Bra-fitter follows this advice. However, if you prefer to get the results according to the EU norm for band sizes, you can use the “EN 13402 based” setting (available in the Settings menu of your iPhone).

  4. Q: Are US cup sizes above DD identical with UK cup sizes?
    A: Up to recently, most brands carrying larger cup sizes available in the US were usually imported from Great Britain. This is why the cup sizes above DD were often similar (i.e. E, F, FF, G, GG…). However, as this is changing, we are planning to change the US sizes’ chart in the Bra-Fitter to conform to the system used by American lingerie producers who are starting to carry these sizes.
