Under- bust

First you will need to measure around your body under your bust.  Basically if the measure-ment is an even number, add 4 inches (or 10cm), or in case of an odd number add 5 inches (12.5cm).

Over-bust

This time simply measure around the fullest part of your bust and subtract the measurement from the bra size you just worked out above. And finally just check the chart below to find your cup size.
