Gynecomastia is a relatively common condition that causes boys’ and men’s breast to swell and become larger than normal.

How to measure a man for a bra?

Take a measuring tape and measure the underbust and bust size. You’ll need a measuring tape.

Underbust size: hold the tape quite firm around your body, above the ribcage and under the breasts. Write down the outcome.
Bust size: hold the tape around the fullest part of your breasts and nipples. Write down the outcome.

You can check your measurements in a bra size chart or use our bra size calculator.

Important! If you have some doubts about your cup size it’s usually best for men to go down a cup size.
