FIND THE RIGHT BRA SIZE

To find your band size, measure around your body, just underneath your breasts. The measuring tape should be horizontal, and quite snug. The measurement in inches is your band size. If it’s an odd number, e.g. 31, your correct size could be both 30 and 32.

To find your cup size, measure around the fullest part of your breasts. Take this bust measurement and subtract the band measurement, e.g. if you measure 31 underneath your breasts, and 34 around, the result is 34-31 = 3. Use the result to find your cup size here:

Cup size = Bust size – Band size:

0 = AA
<1 = A
1 = B
2 = C
3 = D
4 = DD
5 = DDD/E
6 = F
7 = G
8 = H

MEN’S SHIRT SIZES

Finding the right size for a dress shirt can be a little difficult.

In Nigeria, we use US and Britain measurements. Dress shirts have two different measurements, your neck size and your sleeve length, both in inches.

When you have your neck measurement, round it up to the nearest whole or half size. For example, if your neck measures 16.3, choose a 16.5 collar.

Add an extra inch to your sleeve measurement, and round this up to the nearest even number.

There are also different fits, SlimAthleticRegular and Full. Slim is tight around the chest and sides. The athletic fit (also called tailored fit) is tighter at the waist, but leaves more room for the chest. The regular is the standard fit and quite loose, and the full size the loosest.

Getting the right shirt fit

  • Check the cuff size.When you button the cuff, it shouldn’t be able to slip over your wrist.
  • Make sure the shirtfits properly over your shoulders. The shoulder seam should be right where your shoulder ends.
  • Tuck the shirtand stretch your arms over your head. The shirt should be long enough not to get untucked.
  • Bend your arm.The shirt sleeve should be long enough so that the cuff doesn’t slide up your forearm.
