Sizing Guide

Here's a quick-fire global sizing session about how international bra and brief sizes covert into UK sizes, so that you can spend more time adding pretty lingerie to your basket than working out what size you need!

Curvy Kate Bra Sizes

Bra Back Size

Let us start with the ‘back size’ first, also referred to as ‘band size’, always remember that this is wear 80% of your support from a bra should come from – so make sure that it feels firm. As an example, if you wear a European 70 back, your UK size will be a 32″.

Bra Cup Size

Now for your cup size, remember ladies… we don’t want any spillage from the cup, wires digging in OR wires standing away from your breastbone. For example, a common size we hear is a US DDD and in UK sizes this is an E cup, here is a global translation of cup sizes.
