Bikini Sizing Chart

Bottom Sizing

Brazilian bikinis are becoming increasingly popular yet not everyone is sure how to find the right fit. Since this sexy bottom is different from the average bikini bottom style, here are some tips to help you find the right size for you.

When it comes to the Brazilian bikini, sizing is important. With the way that this flirty bottom shows off some of your sultry assets, you don't want a bottom that's too big and loose, nor a bottom that's too tight and constricting. If the bottom is too baggy, you'll spend half the day at the beach worried if you're accidentally showing off more than you intended. And if the bottom is too tight, well, you'll look you're trying to fit into something that's not meant for you. Hopefully the following general guidelines will help you find the right size so that you can strut out in a perfect fitting Brazilian bikini. Keep in mind that each brand has its own measurement specifications so take a look at their sizing charts too.

S 3 – 4 34 – 36 6 – 8 25″ – 26″ 36″ – 37″
M 5 – 6 38 – 40 10 – 12 27″ – 28″ 37″ – 38″
L 7 – 8 42 – 44 14 – 16 29″ – 31″ 40″ – 41″
XL 9 – 10 46 – 48 18 – 20 32″ – 33″ 42″ – 44″

When measuring yourself, make sure you're not wearing bulky clothing or else you'll get inaccurate measurements. Minimal or thin clothing is best. To get an accurate read, be sure the tape is straight and is held firmly against you. To find your waist size, wrap the measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection, usually two inches above the navel. To find your hip size, measure the fullest width of your hips. Again, measurements are going to vary from brand to brand so use your best judgment to pick the right size. If in doubt, you can always order two sizes and return whichever one doesn't fit. Remember, looking great at the beach starts with wearing the right size!

Top Sizing

Finding a bikini top that fits like a glove can be a tricky task. Sizes vary from brand to brand and style to style. Sometimes you think you have the right size but it's actually too small, other times it's the exact opposite. If you're tired of all the confusion and hassle of haphazard guessing, the following sizing chart should clear any uncertainty and hopefully help you find the perfect size every time.

When it comes to bikini tops, your size is determined by the cup size of your bra and it's important to get an accurate measurement. If you can, have a friend help, that way you'll be standing naturally and not contorting around. Remember to stand up straight and, if possible, don't measure over clothing as this can skew your results. Also, make sure the measuring tape is straight and laying flat against your chest. To find your cup size, you need to take two measurements. First, measure the circumference of your chest directly under your bust and round to the closest whole number. If it's an even number, add 4″. If it's odd, add 5″. Second, measure the circumference of your chest at the fullest part of your bust. Again, round to the nearest whole number. To calculate your cup size, subtract the second measurement from the first measurement. Each inch of difference is equal to one cup size.

Step 1: Under bust measurement of 30″ (even number) + 4″ = 34″
Step 2: Full bust measurement of 32″
Calculation: 34″ – 32″ = 2″ or a B Cup

Most labels are really good about sizing their tops according to cup sizes, so after you have your cup measurement, you're set to find the right size bikini top. Here's a general size chart but again, there's flexibility from brand to brand so be sure to double check the company size chart too.
