Need help finding correct size?

People are getting in touch lately as they are needing new bras and unsure what size they are. It is tricky at present due to all the current restrictions in place and lingerie shops being closed.

Linnoco have done a quick video showing you how to measure yourself at home and how to use these measurements to work out your bra size.

It is advisable to wear a soft bra while doing the measurements, not a t-shirt bra as this may give you a larger measurement due to the padding in the cups.

If you need a free toolkit to do the measurements email with your name and address and we will post one out to you.

Remember you are not along and it will feel tricky but do it a few times to double check and of course you can always ring us here at Linnoco 053 9106190 and we can guide you though it.


If you can also  use the following instructions along side the video and compare your measurements.

Step I

Take your tape measure and measure under the breasts this is where your bra will sit.

Making sure that the tape measure is snug, at the same height front & back and parallel to the ground.

Step 2

Round this measurement to the nearest whole number.

So an example would be if you get a measurement of 33.6” then round this off to 34”

If it 33.4” round down to 33”.

Use this number and add

If you get an even number as your measurement add 4” and this will give you your band size

Eg: 34” +4” =38 this is your band size

If you have an odd number you need to add 5”

Eg: 33” + 5” = 38

Step 3

Next you need to measure the fullest part of your breast; this is generally at the nipple line.

The tape should be horizontal and at the same height front & back, the tape does not need to be as tight for this measurement.

Similar to previously measurement round to the nearest whole number

Eg: 41.5” to 42”

Step 4

You need to use these two numbers to work out your cup size.

Take the band size and subtract it away from your last measurement.

EG 42 – 38 = 4

4 is the difference between the measurements and this is that you use to find out your cup size

EG 4 = D

Use the chart below to see your cup size
