How UK and US bra sizes compare…

Hey there!

If you're reading this blog then you are more than likely from the USA, and if that's the case then - Hello and welcome to the world of Curvy Kate, we're super excited to have you here!

Ok so if you've clicked on this post it's probably because you need a little help getting your head round the sizes on our site - well don't fret because we have all the conversions to help you get your hands on some of the best fitting lingerie around. So, let's get started!

Before we do - if you'd like to learn more about our products, how they fit and what will work for you then have a read of this Post.

And...If you haven’t had a bra fitting in the last six months, here is a direct line to our Bra Whisperer – who is on hand to offer a virtual fitting with SO much advice and bra style recommendations just for you:

First up is the back band. This is always the thing you should start with when bra fitting so it seemed appropriate to tackle this first and do you know what? It's by far the easiest as UK and US bra back size are all the same... 🎉🎉🎉

Next up it's Cup sizes which are a little trickier but as long you use this table to convert then there is no reason why your boobs can't have pretty and well fitting bras too.

You guys over the pond don't tend to use double letter sizes i.e. FF/GG, so your alphabet moves a little quicker than ours! All Curvy Kate bras start at a D cup and (most) go up to a K cup, all styles follow the same sizing pattern so once you know what your size equivalent is then you're good to go.

**Now would probably be a good time to say, if you're not sure of your size in general (be that in US or UK sizes) then we can help! Our resident 'Bra Whisperer' is able to tell you your size just from looking, so be sure to upload your images and a small about of information on our fitting pages and she'll get back to you with your Curvy Kate size. See her top tips here **

Lastly on our sizing comparison journey we have briefs, and just to keep you on your toes we have two different sizing methods, one for Curvy Kate and another for our sister brand Scantilly. Curvy Kate's are as follows:
