==How to tell if a calculator is inaccurate==

+

Signs of a bad bra calculator include:

+

+

*If it tells you to measure your "[[Bra-fitting_method#Above_bust_as_band_size|overbust]]", or under your armpits

+

*If, in UK and US calculators, the band size is several numbers larger that the number you put as your ribcage or underbust measurement (ex: Your ribcage measures 38 but the [[Bra-fitting_method#Underbust_plus_inches|calculator tells you to wear a 42]])

+

*If, in EU/JP calculators, it says the number you measured your ribcage as is the same as your band size (ex: your ribcage measures 65cm, and the calculator says to wear a 65). The EU/JP sizing system [[Bra_sizing_by_country#EU|has "plus four" built into it]]

A bra calculator can be used to help determinebra size. The big caveat is that most bra calculators are absolute garbage; they're so bad as to be completely useless.

If it tells you to measure your "overbust", or under your armpits

If, in UK and US calculators, the band size is several numbers larger that the number you put as your ribcage or underbust measurement (ex: Your ribcage measures 38 but the calculator tells you to wear a 42)

If, in EU/JP calculators, it says the number you measured your ribcage as is the same as your band size (ex: your ribcage measures 65cm, and the calculator says to wear a 65). The EU/JP sizing system has "plus four" built into it
