Can anyone talk me through measuring myself for a bra?

I've always just tried on loads of random bras and bought whichever fits best. It takes a bloody long time though as I have no idea of size!
I know there's a good bra thread on here somewhere, could anyone link me to it please?!

You can post your measurements here after to confirm.

Thanks, off to find the measuring tape now.

Okay, I measure 33 under bust and 40 over the fullest part.
So do I go with a 32FF?

32F or FF would be a good starting point, yes. smile Not M&S, their sizing is usually off...

Well FF and also F were too big (that guide can't be very accurate!) but have settled with a 32E which seems better.
