Guide size

Research shows that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra.
Over the years, your bust changes shape and size.
Pregnancy, gaining or losing weight can have an effect on your bust size.
Despite this, many women continue to wear the same size bra they have worn for years. Not only does this have an impact in terms of comfort, but it can also look unsightly.
A well-fitting bra means that you'll forget you're wearing it.

We therefore strongly recommend that you re-measure your bust size to make sure you choose the right size bra.



Here's how. Ideally, ask a friend to help you.




How to take your measurements ?
To determine your size, you need to take 2 simple measurements:

Back size

First, you will need a soft tape measure.

Measure your back size by measuring around your rib cage just below your bust. (1)
  • The tape measure must be snug against your skin and must stay horizontal(especially across your back).
  • Make sure the tape measure is not too tight or too slack.
  • Calculate your size.

Bust size

Measure around the bust at its fullest part. (2)
  • Make sure you are standing up straight. As for the previous measurement, make sure the tape measure is horizontal, not too tight, not too slack.
  • Use this measurement to calculate your cup size.
  • Calculate your size.

Your size bra will change throughout your life.
That's why you should measure yourself at least once a year, and certainly before buying new lingerie.




How to choose the right briefs size

To determine your briefs size, take these 2 measurements:
  • Waist size Measure around your waist (at its slimmest part).(3)
  • Hip size Measure around the fullest part of your hips. (4)
  • Make sure the tape measure is horizontal, not too tight.
Use the table below to determine your briefs size (French sizes):

If you're not sure of your size, we would advise you to choose one size above your normal dress size when ordering "bottoms" (briefs, full briefs, thongs, French knickers etc.).
The main aim is for you to feel comfortable. There's nothing more unpleasant than wearing a tiny pair of briefs that feel too tight or that create a VLP (visible panty line) even when your clothes are not close-fitting!
