Find Your Fit Bra Size

Together, we'll find your fit.

Ladies, it’s time to forget everything you’ve learnt about bra size. And just follow these simple rules:

Ovaon defines good fit bra and bad fit bra

Check the band size. Because it matters.

The band of your bra is responsible for most of the heavy lifting. Once you’ve come across your perfect band size, you can choose that same band size in all our bras
[Tip: Try not having more than a 5-cm {2-inch} gap between your torso and bra band. Check using your fingers to ensure this!]


Find your cup size (which is related to the band size!)

    The cup is related to the bra’s band size. You could be an A with one band size and a C with another (nope, we’re not kidding). So if you decide to change your band size, you’d need to change your cup size too!

    [Tip: Scoop your breast upward with one hand and tuck it into the bra to make sure it fits the cup fully.]


    Find your sister sizes!

      This means finding your bra size equivalents! For instance, if you’re a 34C, your sister sizes (related by the cup size) would be 32D, 36B, 38A and so on. So let’s say your band size is uncomfortable and you want to go one band size up, you can easily find the right cup size that relates to it and get a bra that fits comfortably well!

      [Tip: the trick to find your sister size is - as you go up a band size, go down a cup size and vice versa!]

      Other ways to get the right bra size:

      • Check your underwire. It shouldn’t dig into the sides of your breasts.
      • Check the straps. If the straps are loose and falling, you’d need to tighten them or find the right bra size. They shouldn’t rest too far the edge of your shoulders.
      • Check the centre-front part of the bra. It shouldn’t dig into your chest.


      • Small Cups
      If your breasts spill out over the top of the cups or the sides, or even if the underwire sits on any breast tissue, the cups of the bra is too small.
      • Loose Cups

      If the cups are wrinkling or there is space between your bust and the cups at the top of the bra, the bra cups are too big.

      • Correct Fitting Cups

      The breast should be fully encased by the cups of your bra, creating a smooth silhouette.


      • Tight Band

      If your band leaves a mark or squashes your back, it is too tight. 

      • Loose Band

      If you can fit more than two fingers under the band or the band is riding up, the band is too loose.

      •  Correct Fitting Band

      The band should feel firm and supportive across your back, and you should be able to fit two fingers under the fastening at the centre of the back when fastened on the middle hooks (not the first or the last). The band should be horizontal across your body, at the same level as the front of the bra.


      • Small Cups

      If the wires stand away from your body and/or the underwire digs into your underarm or sits on your breast tissue, your cup size is too small

      • Loose Band

      If the wires and cups lift away, your band size might be too large.

      • Correct Fitting Underwire

      The wires should feel comfortable, lay flat against your chest, and not dig in anywhere. When you lift your arms, your bra stays exactly in place.


      • Straps too Tight

      If your straps dig in, leave marks on your skin, and/or are generally uncomfortable, then they are too tight. This could also be caused by improper band and/or cup size.


      • Straps too Loose

      If your straps fall off your shoulder when fully adjusted, or always slipping down, then they are too loose. This could also be caused by improper band and/or cup size. 

      • Correct Fitting Strap Length

      Your straps should lie flat on your shoulders, not slip down or leave marks. They are there to balance the weight of your bust, rather than provide support or uplift; this comes from the band.

      AGE OF BRA

      Age affects a bra’s fit. Bras that you have worn several times and are well-cared for will be supportive and comfortable. If your bra isn’t supportive or comfortable after a few washes and wears, you are probably wearing the wrong size.

      Be honest – how long have you had this bra? Constant washing and wearing can distort the shape and support of a bra. You may be wearing the correct size, but you need to update your bra.
