I got my boobs measured in two shops and got totally different sizes – they were FOUR cups out, it’s baffling | The Sun

GETTING your boobs measured is not the most thrilling of tasks.

Standing in front of a complete and utter stranger in just your bra, or sometimes even topless, is not something at the top of many of our to-do-lists.


But to avoid discomfort, it’s something that you must do.

However, one woman has revealed that she was left totally baffled after she went to two different shops to get her boobs measured and left with completely different answers. 

21-year-old Lilith, from Minneapolis, United States, who posts on TikTok under the username @2leg1t, revealed that she went to underwear shops Victoria’s Secret and Aerie to find out what size bra she should be wearing.

The young fashion fan posted her clip with the caption ‘Mystery melons.’

“At Aerie I measured at 34AA.”

Lilith was left baffled at the two different measurements – that were a whopping four cup sizes different.

Her video has clearly shocked many, as it has quickly gone viral and has racked up a whopping 1.8million views. 

It has 99.1k likes, 973 comments and 418 shares.

Many TikTok users also revealed that they too have been given completely different sizes in different shops. 

One person said: “Aerie I’m a 36C, VS I’m a 34 DD, which theoretically are sister sizes but the Aerie ones fit MUCH better.” 

Another claimed: “VS and Pink just run so small. Not real sizing at all.”

A third commented: “Aerie told me I’m a b cup. I promise y’all on everything I am not a b cup.”

Meanwhile, one woman noted: “As someone who’s worked for both companies- both sizing charts are messed up in their own way as well as their training process.” 

If you don’t fancy going to the shops to get your bra size measured, follow these quick and easy steps and never face bra discomfort again. 

To measure your bra size at home, all you need to do is put on a non-padded bra and get a tape measure in inches. 

First, you must measure around the bottom of the bra band directly under the bust – making sure the tape is very snug.

Take the measurement in inches and round it up to the nearest inch.

If the size is an even number add four, and if it is odd add five – this will then give you your back size.

Then take the tape measure across your bust and again measure in inches, rounding to the nearest inch.

The difference in the inches between the two then gives the cup size. For example, a one inch difference would make you an A, two a B, three a C, four a D, five a DD, six an E and so on.

So if your back size is 34 inches and your bust size is 37 inches, that would make you a 34C.

Alternatively, you can enter your measurements into an online bra size calculator, which will tell you exactly which size you should be wearing.
