To Measure yourself for a bra follow the instructions below 

For your Band Size

Pull a tape measure around your torso, right underneath your breasts. Make sure that it lies flat at the back and in a horizontal line all the way round. Pull it real snug to get an accurate measurement. When you take these measurements, round to the closest whole inch, either up or down. For example, if your measurement is 29 3/8", round to 29". If your measurement is 29 1/2" or more, round to 30". Measure under the bust round to the closest whole inch, either up or down. For example, if your measurement is 29 3/8", round to 29". If your measurement is 29 1/2" or more, round to 30 If the rounded measurement you come up with is an even number, add 4 inches. If the rounded measurement you come up with is an odd number, add 5 inches. The result is your band size. Example: 33" + 5" = 38" band size.

For your Cup Size 

Measure around your torso, across the fullest part of your breast. Again, make sure that the tape measure is at the same level all the way around, but this time take care not to pull it tight. Round up or down to the nearest inch as you did to find your band size. Now, subtract your original under-bust measurement from this second measurement. The difference is your cup size (see chart below). Example: 38" - 33" (under-bust measurement) = 5" = DD cup size  

Checking a Bra You Have Fits You Properly

Ensure the bra cups are full, baggy cups are not a good look. If your cups are baggy, Try going down a cup size. If your cups are creasing around the nipple, however, that's a different matter. Try going down a back size to pull the fabric taut. Ensure the your breast do not overflow the tops or sides of your cups. Spilling out over the tops or sides of your cups won't make your breasts look bigger (there are padded and gel-filled push-up bras to do that). It just means that you're wearing too small a cup size: try the next one up. In many cases one breast may be larger than the other. In such situations, you should choose the cup size that fits your larger breast.

Check the straps  Don't let the straps take the strain A bra's main support comes from the band, not the straps. Make sure that you're wearing the correct band size: too big, and your straps will end up taking the weight, which will cause them to dig in.

Check for Horizontal  Look in the mirror side-on.  Is your bra band at the same level all the way round? If it's riding up at the back, you probably need a smaller band size. It even helps to pull the back about an inch lower then the front, that should give you a clean line and take care of some of that “back fat”.

Finger rules Your bra band should feel tight and firm, but with enough space to insert two fingers under the back band, and one under the centre front. Fasten a new bra on the loosest hook A bra can grow up to 4" due to wash and wear. So when you buy a new bra, make sure that it fits properly on the loosest hook; you might need to tighten it with wear.

Under-wiring should lie flat at the front The centre front of your bra should lie flat against the breastbone. If it doesn't, it's telling you to go up a cup size. check the wire at the side of the bra. It should sit on the ribcage, without digging into any of the breast.

Tight T-Shirt Test The best way to see what shape a new bra will give you is to try it on under a tight fitting t-shirt. Look at yourself from all angles and make sure that you get a smooth line with no unwanted bulges.
