Find Out Your True Bra Size--And Why You're Not The Number You Think You Are.

Forget everything you know about bras. Which shouldn’t be difficult, considering you probably don’t know as much as you think. But it’s not your fault: bra sizing can be elusive. Although most bras have standard sizes like 32B and 34C, every brand is different. Your size at Gap is probably different than your size at Victoria’s Secret. If you’re sick of never knowing your bra size, Jockey wants to help. Apparently, they don’t just make sports bras. In fact, they are kind of bra scientists. The new Jockey Volumetric Fit System measures the volume of your breast, plus your under-bust measurement, and comes up with your volumetric size. It sounds complicated, but it’s actually so easy, you can do it at home. The Jockey Fit Kit uses 10 plastic cups in varying shapes, along with a measuring tape, to measure your chest. You test out each of the flexible plastic cups on your breast and the one that fits best is your cup size. So if cup 5 fits, and your rib cage is 34 inches around, your bra size would be 5-34.

Of course, there’s a catch. The Fit Kit costs $19.95. Plus, the bra itself costs an additional $60. The bras come in 55 different sizes, but only are only available in nude, black and white (so boring). On the brightside, the brand promises to never discontinue your size and there’s a money-back guarantee if the bra doesn’t fit. Would you try Jockey’s Volumetric Fit System? Flip through the slideshow to see the Fit Kit and learn more about other custom sizing systems on the market.
