Compare Bra Brands & Sizing



An underwire defines your breasts' diameter. A cup size defines your breasts' projection or cup depth. All bra manufacturers use an alphabetical cup sizing schema that is consistent among brands up to a D cup. But, larger than a D, confusion starts. Most American manufacturers go D, DD, DDD, DDDD. Many European manufacturers go D, E, F, G… Manufacturers from the United Kingdom tend to size D, DD, E, F…So, if you are larger than a D cup, you need to understand how each manufacturer'sizes their cups.

HerRoom had made this easy for you. We’ve compiled the chart below to show you all the plus size manufacturers and their cup sizing convention. Simply refer to our chart to determine what your cup size is called in each plus size brand.

Universal Cup Sizing™ Cup sizes larger than a D are called different letters by different brands (a DDD cup size in one brand can be called an E or F in other brands). So use our Universal Cup Sizing™ system and know your UCS™ bra size in any brand at HerRoom. Learn more about UCS™ and find your size.
