Communicating your expectations and boundaries can feel like navigating landmines as you deal with other people’s expectations of how they’d like to be involved in baby’s life.

First step is to determine your body size. To do this, obtain your ‘under bust’ figure and use this figure to find your corresponding body size, based on the table below.
Note: Make sure you take your measurements whilst wearing a suitable bra, and with no outer garments. If you are in between sizes, we suggest you opt for the smaller size.
Second step is to determine your cup size. To do this, obtain your ‘bust' figure by placing the tape around the fullest part of your bust. Then use this figure, coupled with your body size, to determine your cup size - based on the table below. For example, if your ‘bust' is 96 cm, and your body size is 12, you will fall within the 95-97 cm ‘bust' range, for size 12, in the table below. Therefore, your corresponding cup size will be Cup DD.
