Sizing Guide

Find Your Shapeez Size With 2 Simple Measurements

Why is Shapeez sizing different than traditional bra sizing?

For more than a decade, Shapeez has perfected bra sizing with an easy and reliable two-step measuring process that does away with complicated formulas, while our extensive size range provides a consistent fit throughout our entire product line. So no matter what your size, we've got your back - and your cup.

For best measuring results, wear your best fitting unpadded underwire bra and stand in front of a mirror.

1.Body Size

Measure around your upper chest (under your armpits and above your breasts) going around your body. Make sure you keep the tape measure as level as possible going around your back and high up under your armpits and high up around the back. Then pull the tape measure SNUG.

This measurement is your Body Size. If you are between two sizes, then you should choose the smaller size.

2.Cup Size

Measure one breast, beginning at the breast bone, and starting from the outer edge of the under wire, across the fullest part of the breast (across the nipple area), to the outer edge of the under wire on the other side near the underarm. This measurement is your Cup Size.


  • If you measure in a minimizer, add 1″ to your Cup Size
  • If you measure in a padded bra, take off 1/2″ off your Cup Size
  • If your bra is highy padded, then take 1″ off your Cup Size
  • If one breast is larger than the other, then use the larger Cup Size

The Perfect Fit

Shapeez bras are designed to fit comfortably and once they are on your body you should feel extremely comfortable.

However, if you are uncomfortable in any way, or if you are not getting the support and smoothing you expect, then it means you are in the wrong body size, cup size, or both. Check below for your specific fit issue(s), then re-measure yourself following the sizing instructions above. Once you have your correct size, then you can return your item and get for the right Shapeez bra for you.

Getting Into Your Shapeez Bra

There are 2 methods to putting on your Shapeez garment:

  • Step into it and pull it up.
    However, do not pull the bra up by the straps, but rather along the top/sides of the cups/body. Pulling up by the straps repeatedly may cause them to eventually come apart.
  • Put it on over your head and pull it down.
    It may take a few times putting it on and taking it off to get the hang of it. If you've ordered the correct size, your Shapeez bra should feel snug but not uncomfortable in any way.
