To ensure a proper fit, please have someone else take your measurements and avoid wearing bulky clothes. Your feet should be 2-3” apart and your arms relaxed at your sides. We recommend using a cloth measuring tape. Hold the tape level and firmly but do not allow it to “dig” into your skin or clothing.

Female Products

Bust:
For Boleros and vests styles, measure around the fullest part of the bust while wearing undergarments.

Under Bust Measurement:
Before surgery, measure around the chest, directly beneath the breasts using the diagram on the right as a guide. This is your under bust measurement and will be the measurement used to determine your Design Veronique® bra size. Select the size from the size chart which matches your under bust measurement.
