Wright, M. C. M. (2002) Graphical analysis of bra size calculation procedures International Journal of Clothing Science and Technology, 14, (1), pp. 41-45. (doi:10.1108/09556220210420327).

Record type: Article


A widely used procedure for calculating bra size from body measurements is analysed graphically. It is shown that arbitrarily small variations in the body measurements can cause a difference of up to three cup sizes in the calculated bra size. Some implications are discussed and improved procedures suggested.
