  • Victoria's Secret does it, but probably any type of bra store would do it also

  • If you lived near me I would send you to Nordstoms. They have an amazing collection and super helpful, not embarrassing staff.

  • I really don't trust those measurements, but they are a good place to start I guess. Victoria's Secret does it, some Belks, JC Pennys, Sears, etc. will do it, too. Don't just decide that that measurement is the absolute correct bra size. JUST use it as a starting point. If it ends up being right, that's great. Check out for tips on finding a good bra fit. When VS and other places measure me, I was measuring 36D, but the band was WAY too big and the cups were WAY too small. Turns out I'm a 34DDD/E/F (depends on where you order them) or even the next cup size up. My right one fits great in a 34F from Frederick's, but the left one almost pops out because it's a little bigger. Good luck bra shopping!

  • Oh, you can also measure yourself if you have one of those flexible tape measures. Here's a guide for it. Those are the same measurements they take if you get measured somewhere like Belk. I got my husband to help me with it. It was a little more accurate than VS and Belk, but the band still came out at like 35 inches, but it was a DD. I tried on 34DDs next time I went to VS, and they fit great around the band, but the cups were still too small, so I ordered a DDD and it fits nicely. Sorry to post again, but I just thought of measuring yourself.

  • Victoria's Secret will measure you so that you know for sure. You can also look it up online and if you have a measuring thing you can do it yourself.

  • Many places will measure you and that gives you a good starting point. It will eventually come down to cut though. Make sure you try them on.

  • victoria secret. I had it done at JC Penny first and was measured wrong b/c the size bra she told me was NOT working at all. Then I went to VC and the lady told me 2 cup sizes bigger! and they fit!
