Picked out your favourite colours, styles and are all set to buy yourself a new bra, only to find out it’s not available in your usual size? Yes, we’ve all been there haven’t we. As frustrating as that may be, there is a solution to it, ladies. Let me introduce to you a concept called Sister Size.
Essentially sister sizes bras have the same cup capacity even though they are different sizes. This is how the bra sizes are related, hence the name “Sister sizes”.
Figuring out your sister size requires you to shift your BRA size in opposite directions in both band and cup size based on which you want to adjust. For instance, if you are a 34B, and it is out of stock, you could try a 32C, where the cup would be the same as the cup of 34B, or a 36A, where again, the cup size would be that of a 34B! Essentially means, either go down a band size and up a cup size OR go up a band size and come down a cup size, to find your sister size! One up, one down is the thumb rule. And here’s a chart to help explain better.
There you go. An easy, simple and might I say, an essential piece of information every woman needs to know while shopping for a bra. Next time your usual bra size is out of stock, you know what to do. Let us know when you try your sister size.
