Bra Underwire Sizes
When you order bra supplies, you must specify the underwire size you need. The video below shows how to estimate this underwire size. I have prepared a chart that shows the underwire sizes supplied by a variety of online resources.
I recommend that you order additional underwires a size larger and a size smaller so that you can verify you have the most appropriate size for your body. Most women have one breast a different size from the other. By ordering the different sizes, you can wear test the underwires until you find the best size. You may also wish to order bra strap supplies in larger or smaller sizes.
