Bra sizes normally consist of a number and a letter (for example 75C). The number shows the size of the underband and the letter represents the cup size.
When you take your measurements put on a soft unpadded, non-wired bra, and breathe out!

The under-bust measurement (B) shows the size of your underband.
The difference between the measurement across the fullest part of your bust (A) and the under-bust measurement (B) gives your cup size:

GENERAL NURSING BRA ADVICE:
”When is the best time to buy nursingbras?” many people wonder. If your breast starts to grows early in your pregnancy it can be a good idea to buy your first nursing bra early on. If you have outgrown your ordinary bras and need to buy new ones, you might as well buy bras that are useful once the baby arrives.
If you buy a nursingbra early on in your pregnancy, it will probably be too small in the cups right after your delivery. But it will still be put to good use later on when your breasts starts to shrink back to their normal size. So if you buy a nursing bra early on you will most probably need to add another nursingbra in a bigger size at the end of your pregnancy.
If your breasts have not grown that much during pregnancy it usually works to buy your nursingbras approximately 4-6 weeks before do-date. Once you start to produce milk, your breast will increase in size and you often want to use nursing pads. You therefore need to make sure that the cups are big enough. As a rule, if you can fit your palm into the cups, then you have enough room.
We recommend all women to buy atleast one soft and flexible pullover nursingbra to bring with you to the hospital. These are our favourites!
”How many nursingbras do you need?” is the second thing people usually ask. We recommend that you start with three different types of nursingbras. One soft to wear at night, and two more supporting ones to wear during the day. Since you often wear nursingbras 24/7 it is always a good idea to have a few to alter between.
Since the breasts fluctuate in size during the breastfeeding period you often need to update the size on your nursingbras a few times.
If you feel uncertain of your size, we recommend that you go to a lingerie-store and try out your size. There is no difference between a nursingbra and a regular bra, so if your size is 36 D in a regular bra that fits well, then you can order 36 D in our nursingbras.
Generally, most women goes up 1-2 cupsizes during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
How should a nursingbra fit? Well, your entire breast should fit in the cup. There should be no part of the breast bulging out of the bra. From the side view your silouette should be smooth and the lining of the bra should not cut into the breasts. The bra straps should be tight so that they support your chest, but not so tight that they cut into your shoulders.
When it comes to nursingbras with wire it is extra important that it fits well.
The wire should encircle the whole breast and not put any pressure to the milk ducts. As long as the cup is big enough, this will not happen.
