Karolina Laskowska

Bra Sizing

Karolina Laskowska's method of wired bra sizing is rather different to what you may be used to! The signature adjustable underband means that there's up to 6 inches of adjustability in each bra, allowing you to achieve the perfect fit for your body shape. Please use the chart below to work out your KL bra size - please note that all 'standard' bra sizes shown are UK sizing.

Soft bras are sized according to dress size - please refer to further down the page for fit advice.

To find your UK bra size, first measure your underbust in inches. Add 4 inches to this if it is an even number, or 5 if it is uneven. This is your 'underband' measurement. Then measure over your bust (level across the nipple). Work out the difference between this number and your underbust measurement to find your cup size (e.g. 1 =A, 2=B, 3=C, 4=D, 5=DD etc).

Dress Sizing

Please note that these measurements are simply a guideline, as many Karolina Laskowska garments offer a flexible fit. Garments such as frame bras fit a range of cup sizes whilst soft cup bras have a flexible fit that can accommodate a range of bra sizes. Please refer to the individual product page for sizing advice. Corsets are sized by waist measurement in inches. Please order your corset 4 inches smaller than your natural waist size.
