Marie Jo’s high-quality lingerie makes all women shine. The only condition: wearing the right bra size. Most bra labels contain three different sizes: EU, US, and FR. These abbreviations stand for European, American, and French bra sizes. What's the difference? How do you calculate your American size? Which size system should you use? Our Marie Jo lingerie stylists explain.
In Belgium, most women use the European size system. Your bra size consists of a number (your band size) and a letter (your cup size).
What's the difference between your European and French bra size?
American clothing sizes are calculated in inches instead of centimeters. The same is true of American bra sizes. There’s also a different measurement system.
So how do you calculate your American size?
Belgium uses the European and the French bra sizing system, but it doesn’t really matter which system you use. All three sizes are always included on the label. Just make sure you’re consistent, especially when determining your sister sizes. If you have questions or if you want to buy your first bra, stop by a Marie Jo boutique near you. Our lingerie stylists would be happy to help!
