Find your new feel-good bra with the BFF (Best Fit Finder): our Aerie-exclusive way to measure your bra size. Watch Iskra show you how to use it, or follow the steps below. All that matters? Finding the bra that feels best!

Before you start, make sure you’re in a lightly lined bra and a tight top, bodysuit or no top. No push up bras or bulky sweaters for this!

Step 1: Find your band size.

Use “This side first!” on the BFF.  Wrap it around just under your bust, making sure the top of the tape is aligned with the bottom of your bra band.

Step 2: Find your cup size.

Use “This side second!” on the BFF. Wrap this side around the fullest part of your bust, and line up the bottom of the tape with the top of your bra band. In the column where the edge of the tape lands, look for the band size you measured in Step 1. The letter next to it is your cup size, and that’s it! You have your Aerie bra size.

Step 3: Find your sister size.

The BFF also gives you your sister size, aka another size you can try to see if it feels good. To find your sister size, check out the color-coded diagonal boxes extending off of the original size you measured. You can try these sizes for a similar fit to the one that you measured.

    I have loved aerie for a long time but am now unsure that this is a body positive company. I tried using the bra size chart online and my size doesn’t exist despite being an average size. Aerie seems to use a +4 bra sizing method in order to sell whatever sizes are available in a limited range. I noticed the bra size chart goes only up to “DD” which is very limited. I still love aerie and will continue to shop there, but I hope sizes become more inclusive and that measurements become more accurate because inaccurate measurements and lack of inclusive sizing do nothing for self esteem.

      Hi Lynda! Thanks so much for your feedback, and we’re sorry that you had a bad experience with our size chart online. We just added size G & H cups and size 42 bands to our Real Sunnie collection, and we are always working to expand our sizes so that everyone can find something to feel good in at Aerie. If you haven’t already, come see us in stores any time for a free fitting so we can help you find a bra that feels best.

    I am 17 years old and have boobs a little to big for my body. My band size is 32 but my cup size is around 45. Sounds impossible and obnoxious. I struggle finding bras constantly. They are either to big in the band or to small in the cup, i have yet to find a bra from your company that even comes close to a bra that i can wear. Sadly there isn't much you can do. but i wanted to say this because I know there is at least one person out there who struggles with the ratio of band to cup. i just wanted to make it known that my body type exists.
