A well-fitting bra is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. An ill-fitting style will cause you misery and pain, and the difference is knowing your size and style. How to measure your bra size correctly is a Beija speciality. We have a bra size calculator, a bra size chart, plus our guide to the best style of bra for your size.

With a comfortable bra in the right size, you’ll be skipping out the door with confidence. Here at Beija, that’s our goal and something we think about every day. However, your size might vary a touch between brands which can be frustrating. Beija is in line with the rest of the UK High Street when it comes to sizing, but just to be sure, why not have a fitting with us and try on some Beija bras? Different styles may suit you more than others, one might nip in uncomfortably on your breast bone, or fit loosely on the top cup, which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the wrong size - just that other styles that will suit your shape better.Beija London full cup braThere are many ways to measure yourself for a bra, and we offer a digital bra fitting service you can click through, called the Fit Finder Quiz on our website.
