Anita sizes work a little differently to UK sizes ...especially after D cup...here are how they match up:
C cup in Anita is C Cup in UK size
D cup in Anita is D Cup in UK size
E cup in Anita is DD Cup in UK size
F cup in Anita is E Cup in UK size
G cup in Anita is F Cup in UK size
So, for example, if you would normally wear a 34F bra in other manufacturers, we suggest you pick and Anita size 34G
MATERIAL THICKNESS OF CUPS:
We try to rate how thick the cups are of each bra, so you are not surprised by this when the bra turns up! We rate this out of 5, so 1/5 is thin cups, 5 out of 5 is thick. We would rate the thickness of the cups of the cups of this bra as 4 out of 5. So quite thick.
WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? We measured a C cup bra and it came out as 16mm (compare this to one of your own bras to see how wide this feels). The straps then rise to a width of 19mm once you get to an F cup and above. So from C-E, it is 16mm, then from F and above it is 19mm.
