How to know the size of the breasts

In Spain as far as the size of fasteners is concerned, the same size is followed in France, which means that the size of the fasteners consists of a number (multiple of 80 and 105) and a capital letter (A, B, C, D and E).

And what do these two data mean? While the figure measures the thorax just below the submammary groove, the letter indicates the cup, the chest measurement (in its most voluminous area) as well as the projection of the breasts.

And, precisely, to know the appropriate cup size according to the contour of the back you only have to measure your thorax below the breasts and add 15.

Let's take an example: if your submammary contour measures 75 centimeters, you must add 15 to 75, which would give 90. This means that your bra size is 90.

Now you must obtain the measurement of the breast volume; that is, the perimeter with the breasts included. This figure will be subtracted from the contour dimension, which will help you calculate the size of the cup.

So, for example, if the figure is 15, your glass will be B. However, you just have to guide yourself according to the following figures: A (12 cm), B (15 cm), C (18 cm), D ( 21 cm) and E (24 cm).
