Finding the right bra fit could feel like finding your prince charming or finding a needle in a haystack, especially if you have a baby to look after! Don’t fret. We, the sisters and designers behind Simple Wishes Nursing and Pumping Bras, are here to help you find the best nursing and pumping bra is made for you and your lifestyle.

We get it. Buying bras online is not easy. Your body has also likely changed with pregnancy and breastfeeding. We want to support you and help make things easier – like finding the right bra fit and feeding your baby with ease. We have you covered. We are a family-run business with four sisters working together to make products that help simplify and support the life of a new mom.

Here’s how to find the right bra for you:

First, have the following tools ready: flexible measuring tape, pen or pencil and a notepad

  • Find your band size:
    • Measure your upper band by putting the flexible measuring tape under your arms, and around your whole body
    • Pull tight in front and make sure the tape is high on your back
    • Write down your exact measurement – half centimeters matter too
    • Measure your lower band by putting the flexible measuring tape around your upper ribs, and around your whole body (the tape should be right under your breasts)
    • Pull tight in front
    • Write down your exact measurement

Now it’s time to do some math:

  • Add the numbers from your upper band measurement and your lower band measurement
  • Divide that total number by two. This is your band size
  • If your band measurement is a fraction, round to the nearest whole number
  • If your band measurement is an uneven number, round up to the nearest even number. Example – 29 would round up to 30
  • Find your cup size:
    • Measure around the fullest part of your breasts
    • Make sure you press the measuring tape into your sternum to get an accurate number
    • Write down your exact measurement
  • Calculate your cup size:
  • Subtract your band measurement from your chest measurement. This equals your cup size!
  • If your cup size is a fraction, round to the nearest whole number. Example: 3.75 would be 4
For every inch, count a cup size:
1 = A
2 = B
3 = C
4 = D
5 = DD (E)
6 = DDD (F)

Example bra size would be 32 C.

Then, check out our size chart to find which bra size is best for you. You can also visit the product pages of our website to watch our quick Fit Guide video. to view the “how to” process of taking your measurements.
