Exploring Sister Sizes: Finding Your Perfect Fit

Exploring Sister Sizes: Finding Your Perfect Fit

Posted by Aakash Waghamare on

When it comes to bra shopping, finding that your favourite bra is not available in your size can be heartbreaking, we know it feels worse than a breakup😉. However, understanding the concept of sister sizes can help you get your hands on your favourite lingerie, making the process much simpler. 

But, what is Sister size? 

 Sister sizes refer to bras that have the same cup volume but different band sizes. For instance, if your usual size is 34C, your sister sizes would be 32D and 36B. While the band size changes, the cup volume remains consistent across these sizes. 

Now that you know what sister size is, let’s talk about its benefits! 

  • One of the main benefits of knowing your sister sizes is that it allows for more flexibility when shopping for bras. If you find that your usual size is not available or if a particular style runs small or large, knowing your sister sizes can help you explore alternative options without compromising on comfort or support and missing out on your favourite style/ design of bra. 
  • Additionally, sister sizes can be particularly useful during weight fluctuations or when transitioning between different stages of life. For instance, if you gain or lose weight but find that your cup size remains the same, you can simply adjust the band size to ensure a proper fit. 

Please note that while sister sizes share the same cup volume, there may be slight differences in fit due to variations in bandwidth and shape.  Hence, make sure you try on different sizes to determine which one feels the most comfortable and supportive for you. You can also compare the size chart to find your sister size. It is important to keep measuring your under-bust and over bust measurements every six months. 

 When trying on bras, pay attention to how the band fits around your ribcage. It should be snug but not too tight, with the center gore lying flat against your chest. Additionally, ensure that the cups fully encompass your breasts without any spillage or gaps.
