However, US cup sizes are labelled using different letters. As this chart continues, up to a 16 inch difference can be found. Band sizing in Europe and Japan EU does not correspond to underbust circumference, but one add 4 or 5 inches to her measurement, instead of taking the raw number.
Thus, to find one's correct EU band size, a rough rule to follow is to round the underbust measurement to the nearest 5 as band sizes increase in multiples of 5 centimeters, such as 55, 60, 65, 70, etc. Cups increase by 2 centimeters for every band size, instead of the one inch 2.
