Here you’ll find size charts for
children’s clothes. You’ll also find
bra fitting and how to determine your
pregnancy support sizes. Please read carefully
the descriptions we provide to see if a company’s garments run big, small,
etc. If there is no description, that means the sizes run the same as most
mall/department stores. BEWARE, some companies sell a size misses 14 with
the label “size 8,” and you may not know until you try it on. The best way to
prevent this is to become familiar with a designer by visiting local
boutiques and trying on suits and dresses designed by that label.

What Is Your Jeunique Bra Size?
1. Measure around under your
arms but OVER your chest (try not to include any bust tissue). This is your
band size (round down for in between sizes)
2. Now measure the fullest
part of the bust and subtract the earlier measurement. This difference (in
inches) determines your cup size (see below).
3. This is your starting
estimate, and will work for 90% of you reading this. Every woman’s body is
different, so you may need to try on several different styles/brands to find
the most comfortable, flattering fit. If you are in the National Capital
contact us for style and fit advice
or to arrange your own private fitting. Better yet, gather a few friends
together for a great evening of improving your appearance and comfort.

How To Tell If Your Bra Actually Fits:
1. Is it painful, uncomfortable, annoying,
or itchy? Then it’s not the bra for you.
2. Does it fit around your back?
a. Can you fit 1 or 2 fingers comfortably?
If yes then the band is right size.
b. Can you fit 1 finger? You need to move
up in band size.
c. Can you fit your whole hand? Does it
rise up your back? Do the straps fall down? You need to go down in band size.
3. What about the cup? Your breast should
completely fill the cup bra shouldn't any.
a. Do you have extra room, gapping fabric?
You need to go down in cup size.
b. Do your “cups runneth over?” Is there
spillage from the top, bottom, or sides? You need to move up in cup size.
4. To avoid getting frustrated, or coming
home empty handed: make sure you allow plenty of time so you can try on
different styles of bras. Every style, fabric, and manufacturer will fit
differently. Find what works for your body.
