Men's Size Guessing Guide - Step by Step Help


back to Men's Size Guessing Guide

We know it can be daunting for some men to enter a lingerie boutique in person especially for the first time.   Online shopping clearly has its advantages for some.   However whether you enter one of our im lingerie boutiques in person or online, rest assured with half our clientele male, and in the majority of cases purchasing gifts you're in good hands with experienced Corsetieres.   Unsure about your partner's size?   Don't worry, we do exchange if you purchase the incorrect size but hopefully with these tips you may not need to.  

Step One
Peruse her lingerie draw and read the labels inside her bra and panty for sizes. Even better, why not take a photo with your phone of the tags for better reference?  

Step Two
Take a mental note of the colours she generally buys and styles for example if she only wears Push-up Bra styles or prefers a Short style rather than a G-string it's probably best to stick with her preferences to ensure that she actually will wear it more than once.

Step Three
Notice her dress size (this is a general size that corresponds to the underbust measurement but not necessarily the cup size).  

Step Four
If you are an existing im lingerie member your purchases have been recorded in-store and may be accessed. You may contact us via telephone or  email us here to request this information.

Generally Speaking:

Modest size

=   equal to A Cup

e.g. Audrey Hepburn

Average size

=   equal to B Cup

e.g. Jennifer Lopez

A little more than the average

=   equal to C Cup

e.g. Halle Berry

Well endowed

=   equal to D Cup

e.g. Marilyn Monroe

Very well endowed

=   equal to E Cup

e.g. Kim Kardashian

Still unsure?   Don't worry too much as you could always select something that doesn't require a bra cup measurement such as luxurious sleepwear, hosiery, outerwear or even a beautiful im lingerie Gift Voucher that is always well appreciated.    We're here to help so if you're after something specific or don't know where to begin simply contact us and we'll happily walk you through it and make some suggestions in line with your needs.
