After a 38 band size, the band size should be the closest higher even number to your actual measurement.
S0, 41.5" is a 42 band. A 41" measurement is a 42 band.
Keeping the measuring tape parallel with the ground, measure around your bra directly under your bust after expelling all air from your lungs - you want this measurement to be as small as possible. Round all fractional measurements to the nearest whole number.

Standing straight, with your arms at your side, measure at the fullest part of your bust (while wearing a non-padded bra) making sure the measuring tape is parallel with the ground and not binding. Round all fractional measurements to the nearest whole number.

Bra Size
Subtract your band measurement (step 1) from your cup measurement (step 2). Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size. For example:
Step 1 - Calculate for Bra Size
Step 1
34" under measurement = 36" band
Step 2 - Calculate for Bra Size
Step 2
38" over measurement
Step 3 - Calculate for Bra Size
Step 3
38" - 36" or Cup "B"
Your size would be 36B
The cup size calculation starts falling apart at 4 inches larger than your band size, and if you have droopy pendulous breasts, your measurement will not be accurate. See the cup size conversion chart below.
