Sorry to ask here but my PC at work blocks everything to do with underwear so I can't find out from the internet.
I measured myself this morning.
I am 34 inches under my bust.
Leaning forward and measuring bust I am 38 inches.
Any idea?
I know I'm in the wrong size right now.
Thank you very much

34D. But be prepared to try on a size or two either side of that to get the right fit.

Thank you both - I shall I try that link later when at home.
This network blocks all sorts of things!

The bra guru site doesn't clearly explain how to work out the cup size? It's confusing!

"Most UK manufacturers Bra-lphabet goes A,B,C,D,DD,E,F,FF,G,GG,H,HH,J,JJ,K,KK,L…..there is also the AA, which is smaller than an A. For each inch difference between your band size and your overbust measurement, you get a cup (starting at A) - so somebody measuring 30” underneath and 40” over would start at a 30GG"

So a 4" difference is A,B,C,D and so on.
