given up the hunt for a bra that fits years ago and have
settled on ones that fit "OK"? Are the ones available either
large enough in the cups, small enough in the band or a combination of
both? Well, that's why the bras in my Ebay store British Lace are the
solution to your problem. British bra makers "get it" and make bras for
ladies who need "plus" size bras in the cups but not in the band. I
have band sizes from 28 to 38 and cup sizes up to a "JJ". A
cup is even available now from Panache!
Please understand that proper bra fitting online is a two part process
and achieving an ideal fit may take one or more exchange of sizes. Part
One: You send me your measurements using this form and I will email you
a band and cup size based on your accurate measurements. The more
accurate your measurements the more accurate your estimated size can be.
Part Two: You purchase a bra from British Lace Bras and receive it
quickly. Try on your new bra making adjustments as described with your
new bra and if the fit isn't right, you and I will discuss the fit and
exchange bras until we have achieved an optimal fit for you.
Note: If you have quickly lost a great deal of weight there may be a
problem getting any bra to fit due to the resulting large amount of

doubt the highest quality bras available anywhere.

questions I ask take the place of what a "professional bra fitter"
would see while she is in the booth with you. Think of me as a blind
bra fitter! How would you help a blind bra fitter to fit you
1. Fullest Bust Measurement:
a. Wear your best fitting bra without padding. b. Measure
the fullest part of the bra using just enough pressure to keep the tape
Measure completely around the bust at the fullest point, holding the
tape measure straight but not tight.
2. With your best fitting bra on look down between your breasts.
Typically the center band (the "gore") of your bra will be an inch or
more away from your chest. Measure the distance from the "gore" of your
bra (between the cups) to your breastbone. In other words, how far in
inches is the center of your bra band lifting off your chest? This
measurement gives me an idea of how much more room you are going to
need for the cups to fit correctly.
3. Remove your bra and measure your ribcage as HIGH as possible UP
UNDER your breasts, where proper fitting band will rest.
(For most women their ribcage gets smaller towards the top. You want to
measure your ribcage where your bra band is supposed to be, just under
your breasts) Be sure to hold the measuring tape level. If you don't it
can add extra inches that aren't there! So that I can better understand

very tight in the same place.

horizontally (level) around your breast from where your breast attaches
to your chest on the side around to where your breast attaches to your
chest between your breasts. Do not include both breasts, just
