UK Bra Fitting Links & Info
by sophie

sophie recently completed a punishment for me which involved buying her first bra! I'll be publishing her Shopping and Punishment Reports at, but I thought you might also enjoy reading some of her Research Reports, and that they might provide some resources for others who might be thinking of taking the "plunge" [pun intended]. I think reading sophie's notes also help show how confusing fitting a bra can be, and my so many women are wearing the wrong size bra.

Hi Mistress,

I have read some information and watched some video clips on bra fitting and types.

I thought this video was the best one, it covers measuring, checking you have the correct fit and the different types and how to put your bra on:

I have learnt a little about the different types, Mistress, and as you require me to have cleavage then would these be the better types for me to look at? Plunge? Uplift? Balconette (like a corset)? These three help raise or enchance cleavage. Figleaves describe a plunge as a perfect partner for a sexy low cut dress.

Again this Marks and Spencer video covers measuring and info on how to put a bra on:

I found these breast enhancers and wondered if they might be useful to make me a little more cleavage, Mistress? I might even be able to find some that aren't as expensive:

Another video, basically they said to measure just under the breast to get size and then add 4 or 5 inches. How to ensure it is fitted correctly: when wearing it the back line should be level and not be able to be pulled more than 2 inch away from the skin, the shoulder staps should not dig in, the breast should be contained by the cup and the underwire needs to be under the breast - if they aren't, use a bigger cup size - the centre and underwire should sit flat agaist the body: Homepage-_-S9-_-New bra videos&promo=6200&cm_mmc_o=7BBTkwCjCebMz 1z KbMzCjCPBBflCjCW-&gclid=CNaHjZnevLACFYQMfAodUVtfng

It also said that if back band size changes so does the cup size , so if the back band goes down one size the cup goes up one. The cups are sized relative to the band, so if you were to try a smaller band size, but keep the same cup size, the cups would be too small.
According to this site I should be a 40AA:

It advises if you measure an odd figure add 5 inches and if even figure add four to get your back size measurement. I measured 35 inch under bust and bust size 36 inch so should be backband 40 and cup AA, to get the cup size subtract the band size from the bust measurement. So I am a minus :-( I guess AA is the smallest size you can get.

Pretty much the same as the above ones:

However this one doesn't appear to add the 5 or 4 when giving working out the cup size

And for sizing this one says don't add anything for odd measurements. I could be one band size above or below.

So for my cup size I would go with what you suggested - no more than a C - as I obviously don't have any bust.

Thank you,
