Sister Sizing and Bra Fitting Methods
Why do some brands offer sister sizes instead of offering more actual bra sizes?
Some brands offer sister sizes instead of offering more actual bra sizes because it is a more cost and time effective way for them to provide a wider range of sizes. Sister sizes are a system of related bra sizes that share the same cup volume. This means that if a woman is in between two traditional bra sizes, she can choose a sister size to get a better fit.
